SUPERIA

SUPERIA supports resource savings directly leading to profits.

The Fujifilm Superia system can help reduce the consumption of paper, ink and the other main materials used in the offset printing process while conserving energy, lowering emissions and reducing water consumption.
These savings, along with improved productivity through lower labor requirements, contribute to improved profits.

Five resource saving targets are key to improved profitability

1. Material savings

Generally, paper and ink account for the greatest ratio of printing costs. Reducing these key materials is the first step in reducing costs. Among the different areas of resource savings, lowering the cost of paper and ink will lead to the clearest benefits in terms of increased profits.

2. Man-hour savings

Shortening working time and reducing production workload will reduce the number of people and working hours required for each process. Time that is saved can be assigned to other tasks, and shorter processes help enable quick turnaround times and increase capacity to handle more jobs.

3. Energy savings

Regardless of national and regional differences, the second highest ratio of printing costs after paper and ink is accounted for by fees for utilities such as electricity and gas. Conservation of energy is therefore an important factor in reducing costs and boosting profits.

4. Reduced emissions

Avoiding the discharge of chemical waste liquids and exhaust gases not only helps protect the environment, but can also indirectly reduce costs.

5. Water savings

Water charges vary depending on the country and region, so the extent of cost reductions may differ, however reduced water usage lowers cost and reduces associated drainage processing costs.

SUPERIA supports resource conservation as a comprehensive package.

‘SUPERIA’ seeks to achieve five resource saving benefits from a range of products including CTP systems, printing-related processing chemicals, software and consulting. This allows SUPERIA to contribute greatly to improve the profitability of the offset printing system.

Processless thermal CTP system

  • Zero developing fluid waste liquids and water
  • Power used by the processor not required
  • Ultimate space-saving

Processed thermal CTP system

  • Reduced developer and wash water
  • Ultra-long bath life greatly reduces the frequency of fluid replacement
  • The stability of the processing fluid sensitivity also results in a decreased number of unusable prints

Fountain solution / processing chemicals for printing

  • Dramatic reduction of the number of blanket washings due to the inhibitory effect of blanket pilling
  • Print quality is improved through a reduction in over-emulsification and preventing scratches and reducing paper waste
  • Ink scumming of the dampening roller is also less frequent, which reduces the required washing frequency.
  • High quality can be maintained without IPA

Software

  • Shortened drying time due to reduced ink usage
  • Increase in color saturation for a vivid finish

Consulting

  • Printing preparation time and reduces time required for color management and adjustment due to a reduction in paper, ink, and powder waste
