Fujifilm will use Labelexpo Europe 2023 (Stand 39, Hall 9, 11-14 September 2023, Brussels Expo, Belgium) to demonstrate its growing range of analogue, digital and sustainable print solutions for the labels and packaging industry.
New products to be showcased on the stand include:
Jet Press FP790
Fujifilm will highlight the Jet Press FP790 digital flexible packaging press, via a demonstration run live from Fujifilm’s beta customer in the UK.
Built on decades of Fujifilm inkjet expertise, the Jet Press FP790 features water-based inkjet technology, making it suitable for food packaging production. It is a digital alternative to flexo production for mainstream applications and print runs, meeting the strategic needs of businesses faced with the challenge of dealing with a widening variety of products – resulting in a proliferation of SKUs – and shorter delivery times.
Revoria Press PC1120
Fujifilm’s flagship toner-based production press in the Revoria range, the Revoria PC1120, will be demonstrated live at the show. Progressively launched throughout Europe over the past two years, it features an advanced print engine with 10 colours, including gold, silver, white, pink & clear, easily configurable in six before and after CMYK stations. With industry leading print quality, incredible media & finishing versatility, and the largest colour gamut, it is no surprise this award-winning press is taking the market by storm.
The press uses Super EA-Eco Toner*, with micro scale particles which are both 20% smaller and have a 20% lower melting temperature than typical alternatives. This lets it print a broader range of media including plastics and synthetics, offering access to the packaging and labelling markets.
42K Imprinting Bar System
Launched in 2021 following the rising popularity of its predecessor, the Samba 42000 Printbar System, the single pass 42K Printbar System will be on the stand. It is built to the desired print width by using as many Fujifilm Samba printheads as needed to meet production needs. The system’s flexible print width enables customers to print anywhere they desire across the press web. As a result, there is no need to reposition individual printbars or manage stitch zones as jobs change. The 42K imprinting bar system is suitable for folding carton, corrugated packaging and other industrial applications.
Launched at interpack earlier this year, Fujifilm’s new range of LED IDFC (low migration) inks and varnishes will be showcased on the stand. Available in a full spectrum of colours, the new ink set is designed for the label and flexible packaging markets where migration is a key priority, such as food applications, and is fully compatible with a wide range of commonly used label stocks and packaging materials.
Flenex FW plate production
Fujifilm will be imaging its Flenex FW live on the stand to demonstrate the speed with which these water-wash plates can be made. Utilising a Luscher XPose! 330L platesetter and C-Touch processor, Flenex FW plates provide the highest print quality and productivity, while significantly lowering the cost-in-use compared to thermal, solvent or other water-wash plate technologies, with total platemaking time under 40 minutes.
Fujifilm recognises that as well as looking for solutions that improve business performance, modern label producers and the brands they serve are also looking for solutions that are right for the planet. That’s why, from cutting waste, to reducing energy use, to improving recyclability, sustainability is one of the threads that links all Fujifilm packaging and labelling solutions, from analogue to digital.
Manuel Schrutt, Head of Packaging, Fujifilm EMEA comments: “We’re delighted to be attending Labelexpo Europe once again after a four year hiatus. The show presents the ideal platform to showcase our ever-expanding solutions for the packaging and labelling market. We offer a range of sustainable solutions that support analogue production while leading the long-term transition to digital and look forward to showcasing these while connecting with existing and potential customers at the show.”
