Inkjet has the power to transform label and package printing. We will be adding to this section of the site over the coming months. In the mean time, read about our solution for corrugated packaging below.
In today’s fiercely competitive retail environment, brands and retailers are creating new ways to differentiate themselves in-store. There is now demand for more frequent campaigns, customisation and versioning. For corrugated printers this means shorter runs and faster job turnarounds which are uneconomical with traditional processes like flexo and offset.
Meet (and drive) demand with digital technology
Rapid advances in inkjet technology continue to change the way print is produced and it is now a viable alternative to traditional processes in many wideformat, packaging and industrial applications. A key factor in the growth of inkjet in these markets has been the ability to print with UV-curing inks, delivering incredible productivity, quality, application range and versatility.
UV inkjet is a technology that was pioneered by Fujifilm and Inca Digital, with the launch of the first dedicated flatbed system in 2001. Today Fujifilm’s wide format printing portfolio includes the most powerful inkjet printers in the industry, and it has combined this technology with its experience of supplying screen consumables to the corrugated market to create an inkjet solution for corrugated display and package printing.
Inkjet technology is ideal to complement flexo or offset processes in that it allows converters and packaging manufacturers to widen their business opportunities and profit from short run jobs and bespoke applications. Fujifilm’s inkjet technology for corrugated display and package production offers many benefits to a print business:
• The most cost-effective way to print one-off or hundreds of pieces
• The fastest possible job turnaround and ability to print just in time
• Enables production of on-demand short run and bespoke work
• Enables endless customisation of print campaigns
• Eliminates pre-press costs – no plates or pre-coating processes
• Reduces waste in the supply chain
By adopting Fujifilm inkjet technologies, you can meet changing demands from your customers and work with them to create new ways to differentiate themselves by offering a new way to print. Fujifilm’s system for corrugated printing enables you to produce the same broad range of work you might be doing today, but with much faster turnarounds and is a profitable solution for short runs. Even one-off proofs can be made on the same press. Fujifilm’s UV inkjet printing process produces near-offset print quality, but with stronger, more vibrant colours, producing prints with high visual impact.
The latest generation of Inca Onset printers use an innovative modular design that gives Onset owners the power to evolve the productivity and colour configuration of their printer to match changing business needs.
