Adding to the production line-up and continuing on the commercial success of Fujifilm’s inkjet portfolio, making its US debut at the show is the J Press 540W. An inkjet web press designed for fully variable content, capable of printing each page with different images and text, creating new value-added products and business opportunities. The J Press 540W enables duplex printing within a single tower design, resulting in an extremely compact footprint, while retaining a maximum printing speed of 417 ft./min. The single-pass duplex system means the customer can easily adjust registration of both front and back sides. The J Press 540W is a more sustainable solution, facilitating a reduction in paper waste, and able to print short-run work more efficiently and handle variable data by Fujifilm XMF Workflow.
The J Press 540W produces high quality output using Fujifilm’s FM-based screening technology, enabling smooth color tones and sharp text. Fujifilm’s high performance VIVIDIA ink, developed specifically for the J Press 540W, delivers vivid color and allows high-density images to be printed at high speed. Vividia inks result in less ink transfer from sheet to sheet, cost effectively enabling high quality reproduction even on thin substrate.
Live presentations of the J Press 720 and the J Press 540W will be available each day within the Fujifilm booth (# 1218).
The third J Press in the series is the J Press F, Fujifilm’s high-performance, inkjet folding carton press. The J Press F will not be available on the show floor; however, a video within the Fujifilm booth will detail the speed and versatility of this soon to be available production inkjet press. Highlights include print capability on 8 to 24 point paper board; as well as an in-line coater for applying aqueous or UV coatings to further enhance productivity, a unique feature for a digital inkjet press. With the J Press F, now you can specialize in printing folding cartons and produce shorter runs of customized packages, with faster turn times at a lower cost overall.
The Xerox® Color 1000 Press, also at the Fujifilm booth, delivers sharp, rich, digitally mastered fine-tuned image quality. With the optional clear dry ink station, you can apply a spot or flood coat for creative effects that will bring your prints to life.
Enhancing the Fujifilm wide format portfolio and making its US debut at the show is the Inca Onset Q40i, the latest addition to the market-leading Inca Onset range of full-bed wide-format UV flatbed inkjet printers. The Q40i jets 9 picoliter ink droplets at over one billion droplets per second across a full width array of Fujifilm Dimatix Q-Class printheads, resulting in outstanding quality images unrivaled in a wide format inkjet press. Like the other models in the Onset family, the Q40i offers a choice of finishes from satin to gloss, and prints on substrates up to 2” thick. Live presentations of the Inca Onset Q40i will be available each day within the Fujifilm booth.
Adding to its versatile line up of Acuity Series printers, Fujifilm will also debut the Acuity Advance Select HS wide format UV flatbed printer, and the Acuity LED 1600 hybrid printer. The Acuity Select HS is a high-speed four color platform offering white and clear ink options for the ultimate in creative print applications on rigid and flexible media. The Acuity LED 1600 is a 64” wide printer that delivers superb quality for printing wide format posters, window displays, back-lit signs, point of purchase materials, and product packaging. It utilizes low energy LED curing, offering the benefit of low operational cost.
The Fujifilm portfolio of wide format media products will be on display and includes an extensive range of proven, high quality products that provide production efficiency and stunning graphics. The Visual Magnetics Graphic System matches magnetic-receptive technologies with the highest quality print media. Show attendees will see how this solution is changing the way retailers and designers execute major promotional campaigns.
