instax

Instant photographic system with unique features
which generates a print right on the spot when
a photo is taken

When the impulse strikes, you can take the picture and immediately print it with this instant photographic system. Right after a photo is taken with instax, the developer spreads on the film and the color dyes are released in response to light exposure and become fixed on the image receiving layer, creating an image. This is Fujifilm’s exclusive original technology for on-the-spot photo printing.

Totally integrated photographic system

The 10μm thick film contains 18 photosensitive and dye releasing layers. The film also has an image receiving layer, developer pod and development control layer, which are necessary for exposure to light, development and formation of image, making instax the ultimate photographic system.

Data Storage Media

Magnetic tape storage media with high capacity
and long-term archivability

Barium Ferrite (BaFe) magnetic particles used in the storage media maintain required magnetic properties even when micronized, while offering superior low-noise and frequency characteristics compared to metal magnetic particles, as well as longer archival life. Recording capacity of 220TB was verified by using original Fujifilm technology to micronize the BaFe magnetic particles and create a magnetic layer covered by an uniformly dispersed coating of particles with several tens of nanometers thick.

NANOCUBIC technology

BaFe magnetic materials are micronized to 1,600 nm3. The resulting surface recording density of 123 Gbpsi contributes to the expansion of data cartridge recording capacities.

Processless Thermal CTP Plate
SUPERIA

Achieves excellent environmental performance
without using a developer, while demonstrating
high quality performance

True processless CTP requiring no need of alkali development and gum cleaning has been realized. It contributes to environmental load reduction by eliminating the cost for chemicals and waste disposal. Plates can be set on the press immediately after a high-speed exposure with the thermal CTP setter.

HDN and MGZ Technologies

SUPERIA’s reaction efficiency is about three times higher than those of conventional products, owing to advances in Fujifilm’s proprietary high-speed radical polymerization method based on conventional FPD and RSS technologies. To achieve that, we developed hyper dimension networking (HDN) technology, which strengthens the image area, and MGZ (multi grain Z) technology by optimizing MGV (multi grain V) technology performance and improving run length and stain resistance with a multistage structure to enlarge the diameter of only micropores on the surface layer.

Glass Decorative Film

Superior scratch resistance and
excellent UV ink adhesion

Scratch resistance is enhanced by covering the PET film with a layer of UV curable hard coating. Strong adhesion between the UV curable resin and PET film is achieved by further hardening through UV irradiation during the UV ink lamination process.

Antenna tuning

Fujifilm’s original analog circuit technology supports the design of optimal antennas that can adapt to the dynamic electrical impedance of smart cards/tags and readers/writers, which are proximity coupling devices.

ROUNDCHECK

Wireless vibration data collection system for
improving the efficiency of daily inspections
at manufacturing sites

Pickup and transmitter mounted on the equipment automatically measure vibrations at set intervals. Vibration data are wirelessly transmitted to a portable data collection device during a site inspection patrol and can be reviewed using a computer.

System Design

Draws upon inspection expertise gained from
Fujifilm’s experience in film manufacturing equipment

Film manufacturing equipment contains many bearings and other rotating components, and the efficient collection and management of vibration data are essential for maintaining stable operations. ROUNDCHECK has been developed by internal Fujifilm maintenance expertise to detect machine abnormality in darkroom and clean room condition which refuses easy access to equipment by operator.

Copper CMP Slurry
(Materials for Semiconductor Manufacturing Process)

An abrasive that can polish with micro fineness
semiconductor substrate surfaces containing metal,
dielectrics, etc.

Based on electrochemical reactions and the technology for many functional materials, this slurry contributes to high-speed and uniform copper polishing while controlling dishing and erosion. In addition, by optimizing the chemistry to match the specific substrate in barrier polishing, it is possible to achieve the polishing selection ratio desirable for individual substrates.
