Durham Box, a UK-based corrugated packaging manufacturer has purchased an EFI™ Nozomi C18000 single-pass, ultra-high-speed LED inkjet corrugated packaging press from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq: EFII). Durham Box made the investment to optimise its production process and provide superior-quality imagery for customers.

"The image quality, running speed and ease of changing between prints are hugely attractive," said Dan Morris, joint managing director of Durham Box. "With this we are confident we can operate in several markets with a single machine."

Scheduled for installation this summer, the 1.8-metre (71-inch) wide Nozomi press operates at speeds up to 75 linear metres (246 linear feet) per minute and offers the critical capabilities Durham Box can use to give its customers more application possibilities. The press also delivers significant time savings in production, outstanding image quality and the ability to create personalised prints. Moreover, it provides the company the capability to increase productivity on short- and medium-run jobs.

"Image quality is a very important factor, perhaps the most important in fact," said Morris. "We regularly get asked to print jobs that are too challenging for our own flexo capabilities and as a consequence we need to manipulate the artwork which is time consuming and ultimately leads to a simplified image - and that can be frustrating to the customer.

"The wide range of print finishes is a great feature from the Nozomi," he added, "as it has the ability to produce print that has similar qualities to flexo - only better - with high gloss photo-quality print."

Durham Box is one of the UK's leading manufacturers of corrugated packaging, servicing large scale accounts across multiple markets, particularly within the fast-moving commercial goods (FMCG) sector. The company offers years of experience within the sector with a depth of knowledge to ensure that all packaging projects are successful. Today, Durham Box occupies a 10,220 square metre (110,000 square foot) factory and employs more than 75 people making in excess of 35 million products per year.

Durham Box's new ultra-high-speed Nozomi inkjet press is part of a complete ecosystem for corrugated production available from EFI, with leading edge inks, EFI Fiery® digital front end technology and an EFI Corrugated Packaging Suite manufacturing execution system workflow.
