Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division, will feature innovative solutions in flexo, digital and hybrid printing for a wide range of packaging applications at Labelexpo, which is being held from September 13-15 in Rosemont, Illinois.
The company will provide live presentations and demonstrations of the Graphium, a UV digital hybrid inkjet press, designed specifically for the narrow web market. Graphium is a modular Hybrid UV inkjet press that provides the flexibility and productivity to print any number of complex projects requiring a wide gamut of colors on virtually any substrate. Graphium makes converting short to medium print jobs more profitable, as the press streamlines workflow, requires less setup material and generates less running waste.
The modular UV Graphium inkjet combines a range of leading technologies including an innovative workflow, prepress and color management software, as well as inkjet head calibration technology, to ensure consistent quality and repeatable production.
Fujifilm’s commitment to flexo plates and inks will be readily apparent to attendees as well, both as part of the live presentations and dedicated display areas within the booth.
Truly innovative water-washable chemistry eliminates all solvents and wicking cloths associated with solvent and thermal plate-making systems, while getting to press faster, running longer and producing outstanding print quality. Digital and analog versions in three durometers and several sizes are available and compatible with UV, LED, water-based and solvent inks.
Fujifilm will showcase its comprehensive portfolio of UV and water-based flexo inks, showcasing the opacity and press speed of SuperNova White flexo ink, and varnishes that add gloss, texture and special effects.
The new 720 Series of water-based inks for narrow and medium web flexographic printing are uniquely formulated to perform on both paper and film substrates. It is designed to simply “pour-and-print” and eliminates the need for frequent on-press modifications. It is fast drying, has excellent adhesion to both substrates and delivers outstanding mileage due to better ink transfer and stronger colors compared to other water-based inks.
The 300 Series combination UV and LED ink range is the latest innovation from Fujifilm, enabling users to utilize one ink family for both UV and LED curing print platforms. This breakthrough introduction is a complete range of products, including process, standard and color match, opaque white, shrink white and coatings.
