FUJIFILM Integrated Inkjet Solutions, a leading global inkjet solution provider, will showcase both its new and already robust line of printbar systems that provide high-speed, drop-on-demand print technology for a wide range of applications, including graphics on direct mail, transactional print, paper-based packaging, flooring, commercial printing, folding cartons, and corrugated printing in booth A02-A02-6 (Hall 8b) at the upcoming trade show event, held May 28 – June 7 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Fujifilm’s inkjet solutions are designed to be integrated directly into existing industrial equipment and processes.

Fujifilm’s new DE1024 Digital Embellishment Printbar System will add digital embellishments such as spot varnish to labels and various types of packaging, including folding carton and flexible packaging. The DE1024 Digital Embellishment Printbar System integrates directly onto label presses and other narrow-web machines and can add stunning gloss highlights or tactile effects registered precisely to preprint. By integrating this capability in-line on the printing machine, cumbersome coordination with analog embellishment during finishing operations can be reduced.

At Drupa, Fujifilm is also showcasing for the first time the FUJIFILM 42X Printbar System, which is used with Kao Collins’ X-BAR® Universal Controller to create a streamlined workflow. The FUJIFILM 42X Printbar System will be available for sale at Drupa in monochrome and four-color and in three print widths: 343 mm (13.5 inches), 686 mm (27 inches), and 1016 mm (40 inches). This provides customers with edge-to-edge web coverage to support their growing printing needs. The Kao Collins’ X-BAR ® Universal Controller is easy to use and provides user access to a host of unique features in a single interface. This includes support for both .pdf and. IJPDS image formats, read-and-print functions for logic-driven print commands, automated maintenance routines, and advanced job queue management to help users quickly swap jobs.

“After eight years, we’re excited to be back at Drupa, the largest printing equipment exhibition in the world, to demonstrate how our cutting-edge line-up of integrated imprinting systems allows OEMs and brand owners to add advanced digital printing capabilities to existing equipment,” said Greg Balch, Vice President and General Manager in charge of FUJIFILM Integrated Inkjet Solutions. “Booth visitors will find that our innovative product line caters to all printing needs and have a special focus on helping our customers achieve low production, waste generation, and ink usage costs while enjoying high up time and streamlined workflows. The addition of the FUJIFILM 42K Printbar System to our product line-up underscores Fujifilm’s dedication to never stop innovating to serve our customers’ needs by providing them with an easy-to-use controller that offers edge-to-edge printing in 4-color.”

FUJIFILM Integrated Inkjet Solutions’ product portfolio includes seven printbar systems that offer 4-color imprinting, commercial imprinting, label imprinting, embellishment, and custom stand-alone printers. The systems are designed to enhance workflow efficiency by utilizing Fujifilm’s proprietary printhead technologies like the FUJIFILM SAMBA® and DIMATIX StarFire® SG1024 to produce high-quality print at speeds up to 1800 feet per minute (549 mpm).
