Press release from the issuing company
Fremont, Calif. – Mid-America Display, the custom product display and signage division of St. Louis corrugated packaging provider Boxes, Inc., will offer new, higher levels of supply chain and production efficiency on high-end display graphics with the purchase of one of the most advanced, breakthrough digital innovations in the corrugated industry – the EFI™ Nozomi C18000 single-pass press for direct-to-board printing.
Manufactured by Silicon Valley print technology company Electronics For Imaging, Inc., the award-winning, ultra-high-speed LED inkjet press will give Mid-America unprecedented new capabilities for fast-turnaround, print-on-demand products that reduce the warehousing and waste associated with analog printing. As a result, Mid-America’s customers will gain much greater flexibility in customization and versioning for high-end display designs.
Print-on-demand versatility at ultra-fast production speeds
“I believe that digital is the future of the packaging and display industry and the future is now,” said Mid-America Display and Boxes, Inc. President and CEO Mike Patton. “We strive for excellence in all areas of our business and the EFI Nozomi has exceeded our expectations.”
Mid-America’s central U.S. location in St. Louis provides a strategic advantage in product distribution, as the company can efficiently and cost-effectively deliver products anywhere in the continental U.S. within two to four days. The new Nozomi press magnifies Mid-America and Boxes, Inc.’s capabilities in terms of delivering products wherever they are needed with shorter lead times and fast production cycles on new designs.
Mid-America’s press will be among the first EFI Nozomi presses in the Midwest, and one of several installed in the U.S.
From analog to digital with superior-quality, grayscale imaging
The press’s size format gives Mid-America an important advantage in transferring greater volumes of analog work to print-on-demand digital printing production. “Many of our designs are built to optimize our 66x110-inch rotary format,” says Patton, “and with the Nozomi we can offer high-quality, on-demand printing that meets our large-format capabilities.”
“Mid-America Display is taking an early lead in the transformation of high-quality, highly effective, single-pass corrugated display manufacturing with the EFI Nozomi press,” said José Luis Ramón Moreno, vice president and general manager, EFI Industrial Printing. “The on-demand, ultra-high-speed digital LED inkjet capabilities this company is adapting will help ensure that Mid-America is second to none in terms of the versatility and superior value it delivers to customers.”
Mid-America Display’s new ultra-high-speed inkjet press is part of a complete ecosystem for corrugated manufacturing available from EFI, with leading edge inks, Fiery DFE technology and a complete EFI Corrugated Packaging Suite business and production management workflow.
