Fujifilm’s inaugural Real Production Show on the 24 September demonstrated the printing, coating and cutting of high-quality printed cartons. The unique 45-minute show included live production demonstrations from Fujifilm’s Advanced Print Technology Centre in Brussels, followed by finishing at Harris & Bruno’s demonstration center in Germany, and at Highcon in Israel.

Fujifilm is building on this success with a second event which will focus on the benefits of digital automation, using the creation of sets of high-quality photographic postcard essays as an example. These postcards will be printed in Brussels and cut and integrated with finishing solutions on the other side of the world, at the new Horizon Innovation Park in Japan. Attendees of either event that request a sample will receive the postcard sets created in the second event, dispatched in a carton box that was printed during the first show.

Fujifilm’s Mark Stephenson, the host of the Real Production show comments, “The positive response to the first event has encouraged us to add even more content to our second show in collaboration with Horizon. Our trans-continental follow-up show is going to have a heavy emphasis on automation. First, we will demonstrate how simple it is to use Fujifilm’s XMF workflow software to manage multiple job requirements, taking full advantage of the speed, registration accuracy and consistency of the Jet Press. Horizon will then take up the challenge of showing how the integration of our solutions takes all the uncertainty out of complex orders, minimizing errors, reducing labor costs and maximizing productivity.”

Colin Flinn, who will be the show host for Horizon International, says, “We are excited to showcase the labor-saving, high-production, and added-value capabilities of our systems. Viewers will be able to watch in real time as Fujifilm’s prepress and Horizon’s postpress solutions come together to realize the possibilities of the Smart Factory and Industry 4.0.”

Fujifilm Graphic Systems delivers high quality, technically advanced print solutions that help printers develop competitive advantage and grow their businesses. The company’s financial stability and unprecedented investment in R&D enable it to develop proprietary technologies for best-in-class printing. These include pre-press and pressroom solutions for offset, wide-format and digital print, as well as workflow software for print production management.

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.
