Fujifilm’s Acuity B1

At FESPA Global Print Expo 2018 in Berlin, from 15-18 May, Fujifilm will focus on two new high-end platforms. The first is the new Acuity B1 modular system, previewed at FESPA 2017, while the second is a new platform to be announced in April. Additionally, at the new FESPA Digital Corrugated Experience in conjunction with Inca Digital, Fujifilm will showcase the Onset X platform for the production of corrugated displays and packaging at their stand.

Fujifilm’s Acuity B1, a versatile, high-quality modular printer for short-run graphic display work, will be placed on the Fujifilm stand this year. Previously featured as a technology preview, FESPA 2018 sees the machine’s full commercial launch. It is built on the latest UV technology and features new and exclusive Fujifilm Dimatix QFR printheads, delivering 7 picoliter drop sizes. Offering exceptional print quality and high productivity at an accessible price point, it will appeal to a broad range of print businesses.

FESPA’s inaugural Digital Corrugated Experience feature provides the ideal opportunity for Fujifilm to showcase the corrugated capability of the Inca Digital Onset X platform. The Onset X features the Fujifilm inkjet technology and Fujifilm UV ink, including Uvijet LM, a new low migration ink range specifically designed for printing to secondary food packaging and corrugated retail displays. Fujifilm experts will be on hand to talk visitors through the endless creative potential of the Onset X to create high-quality corrugated displays and short-run packaging.

Tudor Morgan, manager, Sign and Display Segment at Fujifilm Graphic Systems Europe said, “Fujifilm’s Acuity range, popular with graphic display printers, is growing rapidly. In the past year we’ve added the Acuity 15 flatbed and the Acuity LED 1600R roll-to-roll printer to the range, as well as the Acuity B1. The Onset X, is a high-quality, high-end production flatbed, and a groundbreaking new platform that will be launched in April.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
