Fujifilm’s new Acuity B1 UV inkjet with sheet feeder

Acuity B1 Open House at Fujifilm Demo Centre – Bangkok 3 & 4 July 2018

The Acuity B1 combines the newly developed inkjet technologies by Fujifilm -- Dimatix QFR7 printheads and precision-formulated, high-performance inks to deliver high-quality results

Fujifilm has announced an Open House event at its Regional Bangkok Demonstration Centre on 3-4 July 2018. The two-day event will unveil Fujifilm’s latest printer, the Acuity B1, and inform and demonstrate the versatile printer. The printer was shown at the recent Fespa event in Berlin.

The Acuity B1 combines the newly developed inkjet technologies by Fujifilm –  Dimatix QFR7 printheads and precision-formulated, high-performance inks to deliver high-quality results. With full automation including an B1 sheet feeder, the printer enables users to streamline their workflow, reduce labour costs, and increase production. Owing to its UV curing technology, output is instantly-dry, hence, speeding up turnaround times. The Acuity B1 has eight print channels and prints in CMYK, but Fujifilm is also apparently thinking of offering various ink options and increasing print speeds.

On Fujifilm’s latest introduction, Simon Nuvoletta, product manager, Fujifilm Graphic Systems, commented, “In developing the Acuity B1, we have solved a whole range of challenges print companies are facing across many sectors. We’ve found that so many applications – both indoor and outdoor – that could be made easier with a fully automatic sheet-fed B1 system.

“We’re also gearing up the machine to print on metals and plastics up to 10mm thick. With market-leading inkjet technology to deliver near-offset quality, we are convinced that the Acuity B1 will be a hugely attractive solution for an incredibly wide spread of customers.”

Fujifilm’s Acuity B1 has been developed to deliver business benefits across all print sectors. With multiple application possibilities, and near-offset printing quality, the Acuity B1 provides opportunities for businesses in the commercial, graphics and industrial print space.

The Open House event will take place at Fujifilm Demo and Training Centre in Bangkok on 3-4 July 2018, from 10 am onwards. For readers in India interested in taking part, contact: www.fujifilm.in or marcom.ga@fujifilm.com.

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.
