Fujifilm Challenges Printers at FESPA Digital 2011

Fujifilm has announced that visitors to its stand at FESPA Digital 2011 (Hall 4, Stand B10), will learn how the latest range of products on show will help them increase profit. The stand is dominated by a number of new and enhanced products making use of the latest Fujifilm technology to provide better productivity and enhanced quality.

The line-up of devices, which are all fuelled by Fujifilm's Uvijet inks, together with the company's euromedia range and Pro-File colour control system, demonstrate its commitment to providing world class inkjet systems, and make the stand one not to be missed.

The Inca Onset series of flat-bed printers has been a key development for wide-format printing in recent years, changing the face of the industry. At FESPA, visitors will be able to see Onset printing in both manual and automatic modes, demonstrating flexibility when it comes to producing high quality, cost effective, images for the graphic display segment.

Alongside Onset, a new member of Fujifilm's Uvistar superwide-format roll-to-roll family will be on show. The new addition is intended to provide even better quality images than before, at high speed. The improvements in material handling, including rigid media, make it particularly suited to producing print for display POP applications without any loss in production. This new hybrid technology, together with the vibrancy of Fujifilm Uvijet QK inks, provides printers with a winning combination.

Fujifilm will also be showcasing its latest Uvijet ink formulation in combination with the Acuity Advance HS platform. Developed to deliver even higher levels of flexibility and adhesion for both the graphics and industrial markets, whilst maintaining the color vibrancy that is only available from this printer series, this latest package is one not to miss.

In order for visitors to fully understand how different media can work on various surfaces, a 'test-drive' wall of Fujifilm's euromedia brand, which provides a dedicated offering for wide format printing, will feature samples of indoor and outdoor surfaces commonly used for posters and signage, including brick, plaster, plastic, glass and even a car door. Visitors will be able to apply the various media to see first-hand the results that can be achieved with the hundreds of products within the range.

Finally, following the successful launch last year of its Pro-File system to standardize color on screen and inkjet production to ISO12647-2, Fujifilm will also be demonstrating further improvements and enhancements to the system that have been developed in the last 12 months. Pro-File combines three best-in-class components—Fujifilm Sericol screen inks, Fujifilm digital printers, and colour experience and knowledge.

"FESPA Digital is set to be a very exciting show for us," said Keith Harley, head of marketing, wide format, FUJIFILM Europe. "We have a number of new products on our stand that we will launch at the show, all backed up by the most recent developments in our Uvijet inks. We are challenging printers to come and see our offering and will demonstrate how they can increase profit by taking advantage of the very latest opportunities available to them in large format equipment."
