Dr Andreas Kraushaar, head of the Fogra Research Institute for Media Technologies prepress department has certified the EFI™ Nozomi C18000 single-pass corrugated printer from Electronics For Imaging Inc. as Fogra compliant. The ultra-high-speed, single-pass direct-to-board digital printer passed the Fogra Process Standard Digital Print Check this summer and is the first such printer to do so.
Developed by Fogra, the Process Standard Digital (PSD) represents an industrially orientated and standardised procedure for the creation of digital print products. With a PSD certificate, packaging converters and corrugated display manufacturers using the Nozomi C18000 printer have additional, proven verification of the quality and reliability of their digital production offering. Successful implementation of the PSD can also help Nozomi C18000 users – a group that includes many of the world's leading packaging companies – with reduced manufacturing cost and waste, higher quality and time performance, and better overall sustainability in corrugated production.
