As part of Fujifilm’s global emphasis on the growing packaging market, Graphium, an inkjet narrow-web press makes its US debut at PRINT’13. Recognized as a MUST SEE ‘EM award winner, Graphium is an alternative to flexo and screen print production of short to medium runs of high quality four-color labels and decal applications, turning them into high profit generators. Available in 13” or 16” models, Graphium uses Fujifilm Uvijet inks to produce high resolution images, providing excellent adhesion on a broad range of substrates. Graphium, driven by Fujifilm XMF Workflow, has as additional white option and can produce high quality production output on a large variety of traditional label and pressure sensitive media. Live presentations of Graphium will be available each day within the Fujifilm booth.
