Fujifilm launched a number of new products for print service providers on its stand at FESPA Digital, including the Onset R40i, Acuity F and Vybrant F1600 and four new Uvijet inks.
The latest addition to the Inca Onset series, the Onset R40i, delivers an ideal combination of speed (up to 400 m2/hour) and quality (maximum output resolution of 1200dpi) for companies producing a mix of fast turnaround retail graphics for distance viewing and high-quality graphics for short-distance viewing. Based on the dynamic Onset Scaleable Architecture platform, the Onset R40i is available with a number of color options (CMYK, Lm, Lc and white), and allows for printhead and ink platform expansion from a 4-colour configuration to 5, 6 or 7 colors (up to 8 ink channels - 2 for white ink).
Fujifilm also introduced the new Acuity F Series, which has been specifically designed for volume sign and display print service providers that have a high demand for near-photographic image quality on rigid media. As the latest addition to Fujifilm’s Acuity platform, the device prints at speeds of up to 155 m2/hr, and is available as a 6-channel or 7-channel model.
The new Vybrant F1600 features Fujifilm’s patented FUZE hybrid UV ink technology, which can improve the efficiency and results achievable within a large format production environment. The four color CMYK, 1.6m roll-to-roll device has a productivity of up to 18 m2/hour, and is ideal for printing vinyl or any other flexible material to create indoor or outdoor applications where durability and quick delivery times are essential.
At FESPA Digital 2014, visitors also saw Fujifilm launching four new Uvijet UV inkjet inks, all of which will offer customers greater quality and versatility. The new inks will give end users more options for filling their printers with work, ultimately delivering a faster payback.
The new Uvijet inks developed for the Onset include Uvijet OH, which has been formulated for use with polyethylene and polypropylene materials, and Uvijet OL, which is a new low odor corrugated ink, which satisfies the DiN EN 1230-1 standard aimed at display and secondary packaging production.
Fujifilm’s new thermoforming UV-cured inkjet ink, Uvijet KV, is aimed at light industrial applications, while maintaining the high quality, vivid colors and excellent performance expected from a Fujifilm ink. There is no compromise to the print speed when used with the Acuity Advance Select printers, and has outstanding elongation properties of up to 1000% when heat formed.
The Uvijet QN ink range, developed for Fujifilm’s Uvistar Pro8 super-wide format device, now includes a new white ink that has been developed to increase the scope of application opportunities. This ink will allow users to produce super-wide format posters, which can be illuminated for either day or night usage.
