UK POS printer invests in Inca Digital Onset X3 with new robotic arm system supplied by Fujifilm as part of multi-million pound investment over three months.

Fujifilm today announces that its flagship B2 inkjet press, renowned for its ultra-high quality as well as its environmental credentials, has received new high-level recognition from the government of the Netherlands. The Jet Press 720S has qualified for a tax incentive that will see investors in the machine able to claim back 13.5% of taxes related to their purchase plus similar savings related to depreciation. This could result in total savings of over €70,000.

Fujifilm today announces that one of the newest machines in its Acuity series, the Acuity LED 1600R will feature on the SOS stand (D32) at Sign & Digital UK (Birmingham, 24-26 April 2018). This accessible, dedicated roll-to-roll printer is optimised for four-colour CYMK printing, but otherwise delivers all the benefits in quality and performance of the highly successful Acuity LED 1600 II hybrid model. First announced in February, it has been commercially available since March 2018.

Fujifilm announces the European launch of a new super-wide format platform called the Acuity Ultra, with its first showcase being on Fujifilm stand D50, Hall 2.2 at the FESPA Global Print Expo 2018 in Berlin in May. Representing the culmination of extensive market research to understand the needs of super-wide format producers today and the challenges they will face tomorrow, this latest addition to the Fujifilm Acuity range is unlike anything currently available on the market. It forms a key part of Fujifilm's industrial strategy, offering increased size and quality to make the production of high-end interior graphics much more profitable. Built around Fujifilm's UV cured inkjet technologies, it offers almost photographic levels of quality with tighter registration and higher production speeds, at a cost that is set to shake up the super-wide format marketplace.

Fujifilm marks 1000th global installation as Istanbul-based Elitronik confirms purchase of Acuity LED 1600 II to complement Acuity LED 1600 installed in May 2016.

The La Digital Impser story has three milestones: one of them was in 1998, when digital print business La Digital was founded, and another was some decades earlier, when Impser, a respected screen printing company, was started. The third milestone was reached several years ago, when the two companies combined to become La Digital Impser. The company now employs twenty people and, offering a complete service to its clients from consultation to production to finishing, it prides itself on being much more than just a printing company.

At FESPA Global Print Expo 2018 (Berlin, May 15th-18th), Fujifilm will use its stand (D50 in Hall 2.2) to focus on two new high end platforms. The first is the new Acuity B1 modular system, previewed at FESPA 2017, and the second a ground-breaking new platform to be announced in April. Additionally, as part of the new FESPA Digital Corrugated Experience and in conjunction with Inca Digital, Fujifilm will showcase the huge potential of the Onset X platform for the production of corrugated displays and packaging on stand C30 in Hall 5.2.

Sphere UK, founded in 1994, specialises in print, design and direct mail services for a variety of industries, ranging from private commercial companies and educational institutes to health authorities and government bodies. With both litho and digital printing forming a significant part of its offering, Sphere UK has built a reputation around the speed of delivery and the quality of the finished product it provides to its customers. A significant investment in Fujifilm's plates and plate-making equipment (a Luxel T-6500CTP platestetter, FLH-Z (ZAC) processor, and Superia LH-PJE plates) in late 2017 has further boosted productivity and enhanced the company's environmental credentials.

Istanbul-based Maggenta, a leading printer of custom-made wallpapers for businesses and individuals around the world, was founded in 2010. The company prints high-quality, emission-compliant, environmentally-friendly wallpaper using a Fujifilm Acuity LED 1600 II. Having invested in an Acuity LED 1600 in 2014, Maggenta upgraded to the Acuity LED 1600 II in February 2018, boosting production speed by 50% and bringing in added versatility. With this recent investment, Maggenta, once a latex print specialist, has ceased all latex print for wall coverings.

In the context of the new industrial revolution 4.0, the printing sector is one of the segments benefiting from the most opportunities for growth thanks to innovation: the passage from analogue to digital in fact enables printing companies to improve and standardise production and meet the ever-growing demand for high-quality printing in lower volumes, whilst also allowing for excellent printing results on non-paper media, which before now, was only possible with screen-printing techniques. At Print4All, Fujifilm will be presenting its range of solutions for different printing requirements, with a focus on the environment.
