The Hinojosa Group, one of the leading manufacturers of corrugated cardboard in Spain, is continuing to expand its single-pass digital printing capacity with the new EFI Nozomi C18000 for Cartonajes Bernabéu, the group's largest production plant, with installation expected in September.
With this new purchase, The Hinojosa Group will have four EFI Nozomi printers in its facilities. This consolidates the growth of the company's digital strategy, and makes it the corrugated cardboard packaging manufacturer with the world's largest direct-to-board digital capacity. As the CEO of The Hinojosa Group said, "Hinojosa has always aimed to be at the forefront and to implement cutting-edge digital printing as a way to differentiate our company from others; we could not have reached this point without such an important partner as EFI."
The Hinojosa Group was one of the first companies in the country to opt for the digital transformation of its equipment, and the Cartonajes Bernabéu plant now has all the printing technology available on the market: flexo post-print and flexo pre-print, offset and now also digital printing. "Thanks to the incorporation of the EFI Nozomi C18000, we are expanding our technological capacity and will now have far greater flexibility, adaptability, quality and customization, among many other competitive advantages that we can offer our customers through digital printing," highlights the CEO and Managing Director of Cartonajes Bernabéu.
Single-pass Nozomi printers form part of a complete ecosystem for the production of corrugated cardboard provided by EFI, which includes the EFI Fiery NZ-1000 digital front end, which provides high performance, outstanding color precision, efficient job management and the capacity to produce versioned or variable jobs at high speed.
"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," said José Luis Ramón Moreno, Vice President and General Manager of EFI Industrial Printing. "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."
