#Ipex: Fujifilm to Showcase Jet Press 720 Sheetfed Ink-jet Color Press
i) Optimizing offset print production
Fujifilm will showcase a range of solutions designed to optimize the offset print process. The company will demonstrate how its range of thermal and violet plate production solutions can help printers increase productivity, reduce costs and minimise waste production, and so improve environmental performance. In particular, Fujifilm will be showing how its Brillia HD PRO-T2 plate can deliver real benefits, such as the complete elimination of chemistry, to larger B1 printers without impacting on quality or productivity. In addition, Fujifilm’s latest ‘lo-chem’ plates will be on show for both violet and thermal imaging applications.
Alongside the company’s benchmark plate production solutions, by using the concept of a ‘virtual pressroom’, Fujifilm will demonstrate how its wide range of pressroom solutions can help printers improve production efficiencies on both sheet-fed and web presses. This area will highlight how Fujifilm founts, washes, sprays and auxiliaries can help improve quality and maximise press performance, and how its wide range of coatings can add value to offset print with minimal impact on production and the environment.
ii) Maximising the opportunities that digital print production brings
Fujifilm will also demonstrate how a ‘best-of-breed’ digital production solution combined with sound business advice can give printers the ‘power to succeed’ in digital print. A major part of the company’s 1,700m² Ipex stand will be devoted to digital print production, presenting one of the widest ranges of high quality digital presses, making use of some of the latest Fujifilm technologies. The company will show how these production devices, combined with the right workflow, web-to-print solution and business approach, can result in a successful digital print business. In addition, it will highlight how digital production can be managed efficiently in an integrated offset/digital environment.
For A3+ applications, the very latest range of Xerox color production machines will be used to show how, with a modest investment, printers can add a successful, high quality digital print service, or build on an existing capability with the addition of a high volume production machine. In both cases, Fujifilm will demonstrate how printers can achieve success from digital print production.
