FUJIFILM EXPANDS DRUPA STAND
Fujifilm has just taken extra space at drupa, upping its stand size by 20 per cent, to 2,400sqm. Fujifilm will have one of the largest stands, and largest portfolios, at the show.
It will have its range of Acuity wide format print systems, the Jetpress inkjet B2 printer, its Revoria cut-sheet toner based printers, and will show a new B2 toner sheetfed printer. The company will also highlight its new JetPress FP790, its digital packaging print system. And as one of the world’s biggest offset plate manufacturers there will be new developments in plates on the stand.
The move comes as the drupa organiser moves to fill the space vacated by Xerox in Hall 8, which has pulled out of the show. Chinese digital press manufacturers, including Han Glory, represented in ANZ by Kissel + Wolf, have taken up the rest of the space left by Xerox. Xerox does not operate in the production print space in ANZ, its inkjet Brevoria press has never been available here.
Taku Ueno, senior vice president, Graphic Communications Division, Fujifilm Europe, said, “The last few years have seen a real transformation in Fujifilm’s product portfolio across all market sectors, and what better time and place than the world’s biggest global print exhibition (returning after an eight-year hiatus) to showcase these recent developments, together in one place for the first time.
“Since 2021, we have seen the complete redesign and relaunch of our Acuity range of wide format printers, the expansion of our analogue packaging portfolio, along with the launch of our first digital flexible packaging press, and of course the introduction of a large and growing range of toner presses for the commercial print market.
“The expansion of our range of digital presses for commercial applications is particularly significant. With the launch of our Revoria Press and ApeosPro ranges, combined with the industry-leading Jet Press 750S High Speed Model, we now have a full range of inkjet and toner solutions to offer the best of both worlds to any commercial print business, whatever the demands of their customers.
“And we’re still just getting started. We’ve just announced two new digital presses, the Revoria Press EC1100 and the Revoria Press SC170/180, and there will be other significant announcements relating to our toner portfolio leading up to, and during, drupa 2024.
“As well as the huge number of new digital solutions, Fujifilm also remains a global leader in the manufacture and supply of technologies and consumables for analogue applications, whether that is offset, flexo or screen printing.
“drupa 2024 represents the perfect opportunity for Fujifilm to combine all these solutions in one place, and to come together with our growing range of leading partners from across the industry, to showcase world-class pre-press, print and finishing solutions designed to give our customers a competitive edge.”
