EFI Launches New Version Of Digital Inkjet Printer: Nozomi C18000 Plus Fremont, Califpornia based Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (EFI) has launched a new version of its single-pass digi- tal inkjet corrugated printer. The new EFI Nozomi C18000 Plus builds on the performance features of the Nozomi C18000 with significant improvements that ensure even greater productivity, quality and versatility for post-print corrugated packaging and display operations. The new Plus model includes important variable-data, ink savings and cloud-management capabilities for the printer’s EFI Fiery digital front end (DFE) and is currently available. Current users of EFI Nozomi printers can also purchase the Plus model as a field upgrade. Key enhancements for the 71-inch wide, direct-to-board LED UV inkjet printer include new advanced transport feed and patented vacuum table systems to eliminate warping. The Nozomi C18000 Plus also features an im- proved post-print quality inspection system to help users monitor quality and quickly identify inkjet nozzle issues or other defects. The printer can also detect and recover from jams within seconds, with automated continuation of jobs in sequence. Operating at speeds up to 246 linear feet (75 linear meters) per minute – producing up to 10,000 35×35-inch (890×890-mm) boards per hour two-up – the printer also features new coater options, including a quick-change anilox coater. In addition to its standard CMYK inkset, the printer is available with optional orange, violet or white inks for an imaging gamut of up to 97 percent of PANTONE Colors. Fiery Edge, EFI’s next-generation profiling technology for Fiery Driven printers, is included, as well. Fiery Edge provides powerful ink saving technology that combines GCR and black generation controls with proprietary tech- nologies so users can further reduce ink costs with no visible loss to image quality. Plus, a Fiery Intensify solu- tion within Edge is a reliable, high-quality rendering intent innovation that can increase color and saturation while maintaining neutral grays and realistic skin tones. “The Plus printer, its superior Fiery DFE enhancements, and our new, comprehensive service, support and train- ing offering extend the remarkable market advantages our customers have today,” said Evandro Matteucci, Vice President and General Manager, Packaging and Building Materials, EFI. EFI employes more than 3,000 team members world- wide, each of whom is dedicated to proving their commit- ment every day by developing breakthrough technologies for the manufacturing of signage, packaging, textiles, ce- ramic tiles, and personalized documents.
