Fujifilm focusses on green technology

Solutions for prepress and wide format presses


Fujifilm India promoted a wide gamut of solutions ranging from prepress solutions
to wide format printing at Pamex 2015. In the wide format printing segment Fujifilm
talked about it wide range of solutions such as its Onset series, Uvistar series, Acuity Advance series and Acuity LED 1600. On display was the Acuity LED 1600, which attracted a good number of visitors.
“Our focus is on green technology and for that the Acuity LED 1600 is an apt solution. There is low energy consumption from the proprietary LED UV curing system.
Moreover, it can handle roll-to-roll and rigid applications including heat-sensitive
film and non-PVC media,” said Pradipta Chowdhury, manager sales-WFIJ, graphic
arts division, Fujifilm India. “Acuity LED 1600 gives excellent results on PET film,
PETG, self-adhesive vinyl and conventional PVC, stock paper, board and even lightweight aluminium. The Acuity LED 1600 uses the same ink for both rigid and roll applications.”

The second product on display was the newly launched DX series thermal platesetter from Eastcom. For the offset commercial printing segment, Fujifilm promoted the PRO-T3 plates. PRO-T3 is a process-less plate that eliminates the processor,
chemistry, gum and water used in the conventional plate production process, the
plate being taken straight from the plate setter onto the press. “Again this product
is keeping in mind the environment and saving of resources,” Chowdhury stated.

Fujifilm India will soon open a Demo Center in Mumbai to showcase its technologies for the benefit of customers. Speaking about it Chowdhury said that the Demo
Center will be operational by December end or early January. “The Demo Center will
be helpful in letting customers get familiar with our technologies and machines.
They can feel how various systems work and try them out.”

Taking about the response received at Pamex, Chowdhury said that the Fujifilm
stand saw a large footfall from visitors from the Southern states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka in addition to Gujarat and Maharashtra. “We received a good
number of enquiries for the Acuity LED 1600,” he concluded.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
