Electronics For Imaging Inc. announced the modular and scalable EFI Nozomi 14000 SD printer at FESPA. Available later this year, the modular, base-model, four-color, 1.4-meter-wide EFI Nozomi 14000 SD prints paper, synthetic media, and board at speeds up to 30 linear meters per minute (lm/m). At that speed, customers will be able to produce up to 740 1.4 x 2.4m sheets per hour ­– a speed that is not achievable with other digital devices.

“Last year at FESPA Global, we featured the industry’s first single-pass inkjet printer designed for the display graphics market, the EFI Nozomi 18000+ LED printer,” said EFI Vice President of Sales and Marketing Ken Hanulec. “After learning more about the needs and successes of our customers with the 1.8-metre printer, we meticulously created this truly innovative, 1.4-metre-wide version that gives a larger share of the market the ability to fully transform their business with super-high-speed and premium-quality imaging in a lower entry point, single-pass solution.”

The EFI Nozomi 14000 SD printer’s capabilities include:

  • High image quality with a 720-dpi effective resolution, including full gradients and brilliant colors.
  • Consistent and accurate color with the ability to produce 97% of the Pantone® color gamut, G7 support tools, Fogra PSD certification, and more.
  • Capacity of 2 to 5 million square meters of production annually with average ink usage of 4.5 grams per square meter.
  • Compatibility with a wide range of substrates, ranging from polystyrene, foamboard, and corrugated to 100# text, folding carton, card stock, and canvas.

The base configuration features an analog UV or water-based primer station, registration table, printer with LED curing, up to 6 printing bars and an advanced vision camera, and is available with several ink options, including CMYK, CMYK+W, CMYK+O, CMYK+OV and CMYK+W+O. Finally, an optional post-UV or water-based analog coater can be added for the final treatment of the printed output.
