Packaging Manufacturer Invests in Corrugated Printing Solution

EMEA, Americas, Supplier News, Supply Chain Management
Saudi packaging company United Carton Industries Company (UCIC) has installed a digital printer for corrugated packaging applications from Electronics For Imaging, Inc.


The EFITM Nozomi C18000 LED inkjet printer uses a six-colour, single-pass process to optimise print quality and ink consumption. A dedicated 'Photo' mode allows matching with over 90 per cent of PANTONE® Colors with no ink consumption limit. Designed for high-end colour reproduction, the printer also operates under 'POP' mode which reduces the colour gamut marginally but delivers better quality.


Founded in 1990, UCIC focuses on high quality corrugated solutions for customised packaging needs - with a capacity of about 400,000 metric tonnes or 1.2 billion boxes on average per year. The Nozomi C18000 printer will enable UCIC to begin transitioning HD flexo work produced in the company's five plants in Saudi Arabia to digital. The migration to digital printing will also increase UCIC's overall production capacity for point of sale displays. The Nozomi is especially beneficial in how it will empower UCIC to better handle shorter runs and changing customer demands.


Discussing the purchase, UCIC's VP Supply Chain, Ali Jariwala, said:

"UCIC's priority is to meet customer expectations, which are constantly increasing due to ever changing market conditions.


"New technologies such as digital printing with EFI's Nozomi C18000 printer help us meet these demands and stay ahead of the competition.


"We were highly impressed with the dual feeding feature of the printer and the three different printing modes," said . "We expect the collaboration between UCIC and EFI to be fruitful."


The Nozomi C18000 model forms part of a complete ecosystem for corrugated manufacturing that includes the company's dedicated Corrugated Packaging Suite business and production management workflow.
