Trupal Purchases New EFI Nozomi C18000 Plus, Becoming First in Latin America with Market-Leading Digital Corrugated Print Technology

Peruvian packaging business Trupal announced its purchase of the EFI™ Nozomi C18000 Plus, an industrial digital corrugated printer delivering high-volume, single-pass direct-to-board inkjet printing, from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. 
The company, headquartered in Lima, will be the first in Latin America to install Nozomi technology, which is the corrugated packaging industry’s leading single-pass inkjet printing solution. Trupal will also be one of the first in the world to install the newly introduced Nozomi C18000 Plus model, which offers a range of advanced productivity and workflow enhancements.
Digital printing of corrugated packaging with the EFI Nozomi C18000 Plus could create new opportunities for manufacturing lots of any size, versioned packaging and just-in-time production of high-quality boxes.

Beyond providing digital printing technology to Trupal, EFI could also help the company with production and corporate management tools needed to adopt a digital business model with short time-to-market requirements and low inventory.
Trupal’s operations involve producing packaging for fruits, processed foods, and alcoholic beverages. With various quality and eco-friendly certifications, the company reportedly carries out its production activities using environmentally friendly processes, including recycling all manufactured paper and using Peruvian sugar cane bagasse as a raw material for producing the paper.
Specifically developed for corrugated cardboard production using EFI industrial single-pass technology, the new EFI Nozomi C18000 Plus printer includes improvements to increase productivity, quality and versatility in post-print corrugated packaging and display manufacturing.

Job processing for the Nozomi C18000 Plus is reportedly 5 percent faster thanks to the latest version of the EFI Fiery® NZ-1000 digital front end (DFE) used to control the printer. In addition, the new Plus model includes important variable-data, ink savings and cloud-management capabilities in its Fiery DFE.
The printer includes advanced feeder and transport and vacuum systems that optimize productivity and printer uptime. The Nozomi C18000 Plus features an improved post-print quality inspection system to help users monitor quality and quickly identify inkjet nozzle issues or other defects.
