Spanish corrugated cardboard maker The Hinojosa Group has purchased an Electronics For Imaging (EFI) Nozomi C18000 single-pass digital printer to expand production.
Acquired from EFI, the machine will be installed at the Spanish firm’s Cartonajes Bernabéu production facility in September.
The new product is expected to expand the company’s digital printing capacity and will bring the total number of EFI Nozomi printers used at its facilities to four.
With the new machine, the Cartonajes Bernabéu facility will be able to use innovative technology such as flexo post-print, flexo pre-print, offset and digital printing.
EFI Industrial Printing vice-president and general manager José Luis Ramón Moreno said: “The Hinojosa Group is one of the most innovative companies in the packaging sector, and this new acquisition reflects the group’s strong commitment to quality, sustainability and added value for its customers.
“We are proud that Hinojosa values and trusts EFI’s broad vision as a leader of digital solutions in multiple markets, and has chosen us as a technological partner for the development of its digital strategy.
“Digital print adoption in corrugated is one of the most important and fastest-growing trends in the global print and packaging industries, as it addresses longstanding inefficiencies, and EFI is committed to meeting global demand to help drive that transition.”
In May, British firm Durham Box purchased an EFI Nozomi C18000 single-pass, ultra-high-speed LED inkjet corrugated packaging press.
US-based Lamb and Associates Packaging also installed Nozomi C18000 digital direct-to-corrugated press from EFI in the same month.
Hinojosa currently operates 12 production facilities in Spain with more than 8,000 employees working across its operations.
