Taking Packaging into the Future: Lamb & Associates Brings Value and Efficiency to High-Graphic Corrugated with EFI Nozomi Single-Pass Press Purchase
Wednesday, April 24, 2019
Press release from the issuing company
Fremont, Calif. – Lamb & Associates Packaging, Inc. (www.lambpackaging.com), a packaging solutions provider based in Maumelle, Arkansas, has purchased an EFI™ Nozomi C18000 digital direct-to-corrugated press from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. Founded in 1981, Lamb & Associates delivers a broad range of packaging supplies and is a large custom manufacturer of corrugated products, including shelf-ready packaging, partitions, and point-of-purchase displays, using flexographic direct print and litho-laminated pre-print.
Purchased at the end of 2018, the new, ultra-high-speed LED single-pass inkjet Nozomi press being installed next month will allow Lamb to offer more efficient, streamlined packaging supply chains for high-graphic products.
Consolidating two analog methods into one digital process
“We are always looking for the new things people want and the technology to support those things,” said Lamb & Associates President Kyle Lamb. “Some time ago, we started offering litho-laminated products, but we saw digital coming as well. It is the future and will change our industry forever.”
Saving clients money without compromising on quality
Many of Lamb & Associates’ customers are also looking to do more versioning because of language, geographic, seasonal events, as well as other considerations. “They can now run seasonal programs or change languages on the fly without having to redo all the art,” said Jerry Lamb. “I also think this will be a great way for smaller companies, who need smaller quantities of materials, to do the kind of graphics they couldn’t afford before, and that will grow our customer base as well. It’s an exciting time to be in business, and we are eagerly awaiting our new EFI Nozomi C18000 so we can get started!”
High-end color and superior productivity
The press also features a 100% in-line image quality inspection system to identify and correct inkjet nozzle alignment and uniformity errors for the highest possible imaging quality. A robust, high-productivity, industrial head architecture eliminates the downtime associated with replacing consumable print heads.
The EFI Nozomi press is compatible with a broad range of boards from N-flute to double-wall, foam core, reboard, coroplast, also including traditional Kemi, mottled, bleach, and kraft materials. In addition, it is the only ultra-high-speed, single-pass corrugated inkjet press to have its output certified for OCC recyclability and repulpability by the Western Michigan University Recycling, Paper and Coating Pilot Plant – a leading certification organization for corrugated recycling.
EFI’s Fiery® NZ-1000 – the ultra-fast digital front end (DFE) print server and production system used to drive the press – provides exceptional print and color quality, advanced color management, and efficient job management to produce versioned and variable print runs at engine-rated speed.
Lamb & Associates’ 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.
