Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division will showcase new commercial print, wide format and packaging solutions featuring the latest innovations in inkjet and workflow technologies within the 11,000 sqft. ‘NOW YOU CAN’ themed booth at PRINT’13. These solutions deliver new capabilities to help printers respond to buyer requests for fast turnaround of customized short print runs, while still meeting their quality and low cost demands.
Fujifilm understands print buyer needs – it’s about turning short-run jobs faster, utilizing variable data and designing and delivering multi-channel campaigns. With Fujifilm inkjet technology, now you can change the way you do business.
“We are featuring more production inkjet equipment at PRINT’13 than ever before,” said Terry Mitchell, vice president marketing, Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “Together with our powerful XMF workflow, we will demonstrate how our production inkjet and wide format solutions enable printers to meet the demanding needs of print buyers.”
In today’s ever changing, project-at-every-turn world, having the tools to stay in step are a critical part of being successful. Built around PDF and JDF technologies, XMF Workflow is a powerful and flexible prepress production workflow. With over 4,500 customers worldwide, the XMF Workflow provides a rich set of capabilities in pre-flighting, color management, imposition and screening for a variety of output devices. XMF Remote is a powerful online job submission, storage, and approval module fully integrated with XMF Workflow, allowing users to offer their customers online job supervision. Fujifilm customers have remarked how XMF Remote has enabled them to upload, pre-flight, proof and approve jobs online, expediting approvals and streamlining production.
XMF Workflow will be the centerpiece of the Fujifilm booth. Live presentations will be available each day, and Fujifilm will also be sponsoring a free educational seminar, “Cost Savings through Streamlining Workflow and Color Management Automation” on Monday September 9, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm in Room S404bc, South Hall, Level 4. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear real world experience from printers and other industry professionals on a variety of topics, including cost-savings and automation.
Metrix, another workflow option from Fujifilm brings a unique blend of automation and cost-driven layout creation, and Metrix can be fully integrated with XMF Workflow. With its ruled-based productivity, Metrix allows you to dramatically reduce planning and prepress labor costs and shorten job throughput.
All the wide format printers on the booth will utilize ColorGATE, a fifth-generation production server as the digital front-end RIP integrated within the XMF workflow and color management tools. With the support of more than 850 different printers and cutters, it’s quite likely that ColorGATE can drive every proofer, wide format printer and finishing system within a print facility.
Fujifilm previously established an entirely new product category with the J Press 720, a high-quality, sheetfed inkjet press offering a half-size solution for print runs of just one or thousands. It provides a superior solution for the fastest-growing segment of the market, and where the opportunities will be in the future. The J Press 720 brings together Fujifilm’s knowledge, expertise, and research and development efforts to give printers the quality, versatility, productivity, and efficiency they demand.
