Fujifilm steams ahead
Fujifilm will today introduce a new large format printer, the Vybrant F1600, a four-colour 1.6m roll-to-roll device that offers print speeds of up to 180.m2/hour and features Fujifilm’s patented FUZE hybrid UV ink technology, which is specifically targeted at the sign sector.
Fujifilm’s FUZE technology can improve the efficiency and results achievable within a large format production environment, as the UV component of the ink produces a durable ink film with strong scratch resistance, while an eco-solvent carrier results in low ink build and improves the flexibility in terms of handling and finishing.
Suitable for use on a wide range of flexible substrates, the Vybrant F1600 is ideal for the production of indoor or outdoor applications where durability and quick delivery times are key, as the combination of UV chemistry with an eco-solvent carrier offers vivid colour reproduction, resulting in a smooth glossy print.
Also on display will be Fujifilm’s extensive range of Euromedia materials, plus four new inks from Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems (FSIS), all of which will enable customers to achieve end results more quickly, and offer greater quality and versatility. They include
Uvijet OH, the latest Uvijet ink development for the Onset, which has been formulated for use with Polyethylene and Polypropylene materials, Uvijet OL a new low odour corrugated ink that satisfies the DiN EN 1230-1 standard and is designed for use on displays and secondary packaging, Uvijet KV, a thermoforming UV-cured inkjet ink for light industrial applications that maintains high quality, vivid colours and excellent performance without compromising the print speed of the Acuity Advance Select printers it is used with. Finally Uvijet QN white is a new white ink that has also been developed to increase the scope of possible applications on the Uvistar printer by facilitating the production of super-wide format posters that can be illuminated for either day or night use.
