Southeast Asia Packaging Leader Thai Containers Group to Deliver Breakthrough Solutions in Corrugated with the Region’s First EFI Nozomi Inkjet Press
The press will be the first EFI Nozomi installation in
EFI – the world’s leading developer of industrial LED inkjet production devices – created an innovative, single-pass, piezo grayscale inkjet writing system for the Nozomi C18000 to deliver accurate, high-fidelity color, including consistent reproduction on solid areas. A 100% in-line inspection system on the press actively manages print quality. With the wide press’s unique imaging capabilities and its ultra-high-speed throughput, TCG will gain an unprecedented ability to deliver new designs quickly and accurately – an advantage that will help the blue-chip brands TCG serves diversify their offerings and grow sales. The press is also able to match up to 97% of PANTONE® Colors to meet those brands’ stringent brand color requirements.
Included with the press is EFI’s Fiery® NZ-1000 high-performance digital front end (DFE), which provides world-class digital print color management tools. The DFE also provides the robust processing power needed to quickly process and feed extraordinarily large volumes of job data, including variable text and images for fully personalized applications, at full press speeds.
“The Nozomi press delivers on the market opportunity many had hoped for with digital printing, unleashing new design possibilities for brands looking to differentiate themselves and effectively sell to a greater number of segmented markets,” said Mr. Poramate Larnroongroj, Managing Director of TCG. “This installation is the beginning of an important digital production initiative that TCG will expand as our customers benefit from and accelerate their targeted versioning and localization strategies.”
Unprecedented opportunities in design and versioning
TCG’s digital press, which features a six-color inkset (CMYK, orange and violet), significantly reduces the time needed to launch new product designs on a broad range of applications, including packaging the company provides for footwear and consumer product shelf-ready packaging. It also gives TCG the ability to create versioned designs for products in the many different local markets the company serves across
Substrate versatility is a key advantage on the ultra-high-speed, single-pass inkjet press, as it can print on materials from 14-point card stock to triple-wall board, including traditional Kemi, mottled, bleach and kraft materials, at full press-rated speeds.
Given environmental concerns throughout the packaging industry, the press also provides an important sustainability advantage. The
“TCG can drive outstanding results for its customers through this partnership with one of the industry’s true breakthrough innovations – an ultra-high-speed, single-pass production platform that can handle the size, imaging and material handling challenges that previously limited the use of digital print in the corrugated space,” said José Luis Ramón Moreno, vice president and general manager, EFI Industrial Printing. “The Nozomi press is more than proving its value at installations in
