Fujifilm and Fuji Xerox together at PacPrint 2017
Fujifilm Graphic Systems will be exhibiting alongside Fuji Xerox Australia on PacPrint’s second largest stand, stand E10, from May 23-26 at Melbourne’s Exhibition Centre. The theme is ‘Value from Innovation.’
Fujifilm Holdings Corporation of Japan is 75% owner of Fuji Xerox and 100% owner of Fujifilm. The two local subsidiaries have developed closer ties, with Fuji Xerox Australia now reselling Fujifilm’s Acuity range of flatbed and roll UV printers and inks.
Graphic Systems Division Manager Warren Hinder notes: “It makes sense for us to exhibit in the same area as our sister company Fuji Xerox Australia – it’s also more convenient for our customers in both Australia and New Zealand since many have offset, digital cut-sheet and wide format capabilities and can see them all in close proximity.”
Hinder emphasises that the Fujifilm area of stand E10 will be both distinct but also blended with Fuji Xerox’s: “We will have a major focus on our Superia and ZAC plate systems for cost-savings and lower chemical use in offset prepress. XMF automated workflow will have its own demonstration ‘pod’ where printshop owners can get hands-on with what we believe is the easiest-to-use and most advanced workflow for modern businesses.”
New inkjet technologies
As one of the world’s largest suppliers of inkjet inks, printheads and hardware, Fujifilm will showcase its impressive inkjet portfolio with working technology on-stand as well as in static print display areas. At the highest end of flatbed UV production is the Inca Digital range which, while the sheer size of these machines precludes live demonstrations, so Fujifilm will present a Pop-up Corrugated Display area (example pictured), with several Inca-printed samples on the floor. Fujifilm distribute the UK-manufactured Inca Digital presses, which are capable of up to 900 square metres per hour of high quality flatbed UV output.
Visitors to the Fujifilm area of stand E10 are sure to find a friendly local face as the company will be bringing in account managers from all corners of Australia and also New Zealand.
Hinder says, “All of the team are looking forward to PacPrint 2017 and meeting up with customers both old and new. We hope to demonstrate the true value of our innovations which, as a global company, are always developed with the environment and social responsibility in mind, along with lower costs of use that translate into better business propositions for our customers. We extend a warm welcome to all PacPrint visitors.”
