FUJIFILM TO HIGHLIGHT BENEFITS OF ITS CORE INKJET TECHNOLOGY AT FESPA 2017
Hanover Park, IL, May 10, 2017 – At FESPA 2017, Fujifilm will use its stand in Hall B4 (Stand B4L-E35) in Hamburg, Germany, May 8 – 12, 2017 to showcase a technology preview of a unique new modular flatbed production system using “Fujifilm Inkjet Technology.” Rather than showcase the company's existing flatbed and roll-fed production systems, which are all available for demo at multiple locations around the United States and Europe, Fujifilm is giving a glimpse of the future by showing an exciting, brand new, B1 format platform that will spark the interest of print service providers in a number of markets.
At drupa 2016, Fujifilm launched the “Fujifilm Inkjet Technology” brand which comprises a unique combination of printheads, aqueous and UV inks, and image optimization technologies, all Fujifilm owned and developed. A combination of these technologies is at the heart of many of the industry's leading inkjet production systems, including the J Press 720S and Heidelberg Primefire 106 in the commercial and packaging markets, and the Inca Onset X in the wide format market. Fujifilm is also applying these technologies in new, ground-breaking system developments of its own.
The new flatbed production system to be previewed at FESPA 2017 has no like-for-like equivalent on the market and will fill a much needed gap. Built on UV technology, this B1 format device will offer ultra-high print quality and high productivity at an accessible price point. It will appeal to a broad range of printers, from commercial to industrial, and will be able to accommodate a huge range of substrates, including plastics, acrylics, glass and sheet metal.
Visitors interested in printers from Fujifilm's established wide format range such as the Acuity Series, or Inca Digital’s Onset X Series, will also be to meet with experts on hand to answer any questions about these existing wide format solutions.
“We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Fujifilm stand at FESPA 2017 to demonstrate how Fujifilm's unrivalled inkjet technology is driving the industry forward,” said Steve Wood, marketing manager, Fujifilm Graphic Systems. “The development of our new B1 format inkjet platform is the latest example of this technology in action and offers a clear illustration of how Fujifilm is pushing the boundaries in digital print and helping printers across all sectors of the industry to transform their businesses.”
