EFI has introduced a new single-pass for display graphics UV LED inkjet printer, part of EFI’s super-high-speed series of devices, leverages the capabilities of the EFI Nozomi C18000 Plus printer for direct-to-board corrugated packaging production.
“When EFI announced EFI Nozomi single-pass technology at drupa 2016, the company was surprised at the level of interest expressed in this printer by display graphics customers, and we have been able to respond to demand with the most productive solution dedicated to that market,” said Ken Hanulec, vice president of worldwide corporate marketing, EFI. “Single-pass technology, done right, has the potential to change every print vertical it touches and give our customers unprecedented new opportunities. As the leader in advanced UV LED digital production solutions, we are excited to bring the very important efficiencies and throughput advantages of EFI’s proven single-pass technology to the display graphics market.”
The printer’s on-board quality inspection system checks for color uniformity, as well as for nozzle out and other defects.
The EFI Fiery digital front end (DFE) used to drive the printer provides a scalable blade-server architecture with HyperRIP performance, Adobe PDF Print Engine, and variable data support. The DFE also features Smart Ink Estimator – an advanced solution that analyzes image data for estimates of ink costs. Fiery Edge, EFI’s next-generation profiling technology, is included as well.
Scheduled to be available later this year, the printer is designed for robust productivity and high uptime. The professional services program also provides remote support. New remote solutions include data and intelligence offerings centered around EFI IQ cloud platform applications.
The new single-pass printer is one of three solutions – including the VUTEk h5 UV LED hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll printer with three-quarter automation and the new EFI VUTEk XT hybrid – that comprise EFI’s super-high-speed portfolio of advanced, high-volume display graphics products designed to drive the analog-to-digital transformation in printing.
