We're driving a digital revolution in commercial printing.
Fujifilm provides advanced solutions for multiple stages of the printing process — from scanning and prepress to platemaking and proofing.
Today's publishing and printing industries depend on computers and digital technology. Fujifilm offers solutions, including onscreen editing systems and digital image scanners, computer-to-plate (CTP) systems, and proofing systems used to assure quality. We also make supplies and equipment for traditional printing processes.
Computer-to-plate (CTP) technology lets printing companies make printing plates directly from computer data, skipping the film stage. CTP platesetting is not only faster, but also more precise so colors line up correctly. The commercial printing industry is converting to CTP at a rapid pace. Our new processless and chemistry-free CTP plates are making printing more eco-friendly by reducing waste.
We manufacture offset printing plates in four parts of the world — Japan, the United States, the Netherlands and China. Our two Chinese plants, in Hebei and Jiangsu provinces, are helping meet demand not only in the growing Chinese market, but also worldwide. As we fortify our international manufacturing and sales network, we aim to achieve a dominant share of the global market for CTP plates.
On-demand printing allows small print runs of a wide array of content. It is ideal for printing product brochures, targeted direct-mail advertising and self-published books, on an as-needed basis. Data is sent directly from the print server to the printer; no printing plates are required.
Our Jet Press 720 digital inkjet press uses Fujifilm-developed water-based inkjet technology together with new high-speed, high-resolution printheads developed by Fujifilm Dimatix, Inc. The Jet Press 720 delivers offset quality and performance without the make-ready steps of CTP or conventional printing. The result is a revolution in productivity that meets the commercial printing industry's need for small-lot, high-quality printing performance in one complete system.
In the field of on-demand printing and data printing, we offer a synergistic solution that combines Fuji Xerox products with color management and other technologies from Fujifilm. Around the world, we are providing new solutions that integrate the capabilities of our graphic systems business and the technologies of other Fujifilm group members.
