Fujifilm has signed up to exhibit at The Print Show for the first time, stating that the event’s focus on the UK industry and a personable setup were the main reasons behind its decision.
Keith Dalton, Fujifilm Graphic Systems UK director, says: “Exhibiting at the show will give us an opportunity to build on our success at Drupa and provides us a platform to engage with companies from across the UK who didn’t have the chance to visit Drupa.
“Being a UK show also gives attendees the chance to focus on the issues and opportunities specifically related to the UK industry.
“The size and focus of The Print Show means visitors can see new technologies and discuss their business needs with exhibitors in a more personable environment than the bigger international shows.”
Fujifilm will use the event to showcase its Acuity LED 1600 II wide-format LED UV inkjet printer. Unveiled in September 2015, the machine is the follow-up model to the Acuity LED 1600, offering faster printing speeds of 33sq m/h. The device also boasts a maximum print width of 1,610mm, as well as a top-end resolution of 1200dpi.
In addition to the Acuity LED 1600 II, Fujifilm will be showing a host of samples that can be produced on its Acuity LED 3200S, which will officially launch in the UK at a special open day event this month. Visitors will also be able to view video demonstrations of the Jet Press 720S and find out how the device can help open up new opportunities.
“As this year’s Print Show follows our own annual open day in September, we will also carry the theme of this open day—‘Go Creative, Be Creative’—through to the show as well,” Dalton said, adding: “This gives us the opportunity to demonstrate once again to visitors the diverse range of applications they can create when using Fujifilm’s inkjet technologies.”
Fujifilm will share its stand with a number of its UK industry partners including Service Offset Supplies, Mayday Graphic Products, Offset Supplies, and Intuprint, which will allow visitors to view even more products and solutions alongside the core Fujifilm portfolio.
