Delta Group to Install Europe’s 1st EFI Nozomi 18000+ LED Single-Pass Printer for Display Graphics

09 June 2022: London-based global visual communications provider Delta Group is furthering its pioneering technical capabilities in high-quality, ultra-high-speed inkjet printing with the purchase of the new EFI™ Nozomi 18000+ LED single-pass printer for display graphics from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. Scheduled for installation in Q3, the new printer – the first of its kind to be installed in Europe and only the second to be installed anywhere in the world.

“We have had remarkable success as an early adopter of EFI’s single-pass technology on our first Nozomi solution, an EFI Nozomi C18000 corrugated board printer that we use to produce high-quality displays,” said Delta Group COO Martin Shipp. “The new 18000+ model for signage and display graphics will be a welcome development for our customers. The range of applications this printer enables, printing on paper, styrene, corrugated plastic and more at very high speeds, keeps Delta Group ahead in its ability to meet every customer need in the display graphics space.”

The new printer purchase, which was announced during FESPA 2022 Expo.

The 1.8-metre (71-inch) wide printer – the very first single-pass inkjet printer designed and built for the sign and display graphics market – runs at production speeds from 3,000-5,000 square metres per hour, or up to 1,000 1.2×1.4-metre sheets per hour. The press’s ultra-fast productivity is managed and driven through an advanced, EFI Fiery® NZ-1000 digital front end (DFE), which delivers robust, highly accurate colour management.

The printer also gives display graphics providers like Delta Group the opportunity to grow revenues and margins while consolidating large volumes of work from multiple printers onto a single, premium-quality device. Award-winning Fiery FreeForm™ Create software used with the DFE enables streamlined creation and management of variable-data jobs for the printer.

The printer handles sheets from 0.3 mm to 12 mm thick with either manual or full automation feeding and stacking. A hybrid aqueous/UV primer unit on the print system enables printing on corrugated plastics and other sign and display materials without ink adhesion issues, and an optional post UV coater provides weatherability and UV protection for outdoor graphics.
