The Nozomi C18000 press for corrugated post-print
Smurfit Kappa Group is partnering with EFI to establish a digital corrugated packaging production offering with the installation of a Nozomi C18000 press. The new press is scheduled to be installed this month at one of the company's plants in Iberia.
'Our ability to achieve high-quality print production in larger volumes with the Nozomi press will mean our customers can establish better supply chain strategies and be more creative by producing multiple designs - all of which can help our customers sell more products and reduce their time to market, while employing a leaner, more sustainable packaging programme,' said Ignacio Sevillano, CEO Smurfit Kappa Spain, Portugal and Morocco.
The plant installing it currently manufactures a wide range of boxes and trays using six-colour analogue printing on single-channel B, C, E and double-channel B/C and C/E board. The Nozomi prints in six colours plus white and can run same grades of single-and double-channel board the company already uses at full press-rated speeds. Output from the press has certification for OCC recyclability and repulpability from the Western Michigan University Recycling, Paper and Coating Pilot Plant.
