Electronics For Imaging (EFI) is exhibiting its corrugated packaging technologies at this year’s iCorrugated Asia Expo in Shanghai, China, which is being held between 21 March and 23 March.
At the event, the company is showcasing Nozomi C18000 single-pass and direct-to-corrugated LED inkjet corrugated packaging press, as well as Escada corrugator control and closed-loop process control software technologies.
Nozomi C18000 press is suitable for producing full-colour secondary packaging and corrugated displays.
The company is offering the single-pass digital LED printing system in configurations that include up to six colours, including CMYK, orange and violet, as well as white.
Nozomi press can offer printing speeds of up to 75 linear metres per minute on a maximum sheet size of 1.8 x 3 metres.
EFI Escada software is a complete modular system that advances automation and supports converters to produce consistent board quality across multiple shifts.
Escada corrugator control management modules comprised of Optima, Syncro 7, Profile, Vision, and Clarity.
Optima is an integrated rollstock system that supports both barcodes and RFID roll tracking, while Syncro 7 is a control system that automates corrugators from the wet end to the dry end to increase productivity and reduce waste.
Profile is a closed-loop process control system that manages all of the processes to improve quality, while Vision is a pre and post-corrugator application used for sales order entry and management, order and pallet tracking and sheet counting.
Clarity is an analysis and reporting tool with a flexible interface that provides critical information to take real-time and fact-based business decisions.
EFI Industrial Printing general manager and vice president José Luis Ramón Moreno said: “Our question to visitors at both iCorrugated and SinoCorrugated is, ‘Are you ready for the digital revolution in corrugated?.
“The future of corrugated is here, it is real, and Nozomi has made it possible. Visitors will clearly see how they can reap the benefits of the digital transformation, opening new market opportunities and significantly increasing quality, throughput and profitability.”
