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.
