At drupa 2016, Fujifilm launched the Fujifilm Inkjet Technology brand which comprises a unique combination of printheads, aqueous and UV inks, and image optimisation technologies, all Fujifilm owned and developed. A combination of these technologies is at the heart of many of the industry’s leading inkjet production systems, including the Jet Press 720S and Heidelberg Primefire 106 in the commercial and packaging markets, and the Onset X in the wide format market. Fujifilm is also applying these technologies in new system developments of its own.
The new flatbed production system to be previewed at FESPA 2017 has no like-for-like equivalent on the market and will fill a much-needed gap. Built on UV technology, this B1 format device will offer ultra-high print quality and high productivity at an accessible price point. It will appeal to a broad range of printers, from commercial to industrial, and will be able to accommodate a huge range of substrates, including plastics, acrylics, glass and sheet metal.
