IGAS2015 exhibit for Fujifilm

July 29, 2015

Fujifilm Global Graphic Systems Co., Ltd. (President & Chief Representative Director: Hisanori Makaya; Hereinafter “FFGS”) today announces that it will be exhibiting at IGAS2015, an event hosted at Tokyo Big Sight, for six days from September 11th (Friday) – 16th (Wednesday).

Under the corporate message of “VALUE FROM INNOVATION” FFGS will show the passion “to face each customer and resolve issues together, making each innovation influence the entire industry, and thereby maximize the added value of printing”.

The booth floor will be comprised of the ‘commericla printing’ and ‘package printing’ zones, and inbetween the two areas, FFGS will showcase a ‘workflow system’ as the overall hub of the exhibition. The ‘commerce, publication printing’ zone will be composed of “offset printing (CTP)” and “digital press” sections, and FFGS will operate all of the five selected digital presses including the Jet Press 720S to enable visitors to see the overall workflow up to post-press processing.

One of the major attractions of the exhibition is ‘SUPERIA’ - the latest resource saving solution from FFGS showcased within the “offset printing” section of the ‘commerce, publication printing zone’. With demonstrations, examples and data, this area will illustrate how Fujifilm’s combination of offset solutions, from CTP systems, printing chemicals, software, to consultation can provide increased profitability while limiting excessive material use and reducing man-hours.

The flexible packaging UV inkjet press, showcased as a technology demonstration, is one of the eye-catching products in the ‘package printing zone’. This will provide visitors with a specific vision of how Fujifilm’s latest inkjet technology can serve as a key to resolve issues associated with short-runs and multi-product flexible packaging. The ‘package printing zone’ will also include the ‘FLENEX system’ in depth, which is a system becoming increasingly commercialized as a mainstay solution for water-based flexo printing. Extensive print samples will also be available, offering visitors a close look at the system’s fine image quality and highly practical potential.

With examples and demonstrations, the ‘workflow zone’ of the exhibition will feature the ever-developing XMF Workflow and its significant capabilities. These include the merits that will be brought to the production process from stronger MIS collaboration using ‘XMF Controller’, the increase in efficiency levels regarding imposition and page layout with FFGS’s new ‘PHOENIX’ software, as well as the use of related software.
