Fujifilm introduces Vybrant F1600 - a 1.6m roll inkjet printer for the sign and graphics market

altNew platform makes its debut at FESPA Digital 2014

Fujifilm today announces the introduction of the Vybrant F1600 at FESPA Digital (20th - 23rd May 2014, Munich), a new large format printer targeted at the sign industry. The Vybrant F1600 is a 1.6m roll-to-roll device featuring Fujifilm's patented FUZE hybrid UV ink technology.

Fujifilm's FUZE technology can improve the efficiency and results achievable within a large format production environment. The UV component of the ink produces a durable ink film with strong scratch resistance, while an eco-solvent carrier results in low ink build and improves the flexibility in terms of handling and finishing. Thanks to the UV curing capability, no de-gassing time is required, and substrates can be finished and shipped immediately after print.

The Vybrant F1600 is a four colour CMYK machine with a productivity of up to 18.0 m2/hour and guarantees adhesion to a wide range of substrates. The device is ideal for printing vinyl or any other flexible materials to create indoor or outdoor applications where durability and quick delivery times are key. The combination of UV chemistry with an eco-solvent carrier offers vivid colour reproduction, resulting in a smooth glossy print.

Mike Battersby, large format marketing manager at FUJIFILM Speciality Ink Systems, comments: "The Vybrant F1600 is a highly effective roll-to-roll platform that increases the competitiveness of small and medium large format printers." He explains: "Fujifilm's FUZE technology integrates the unique benefits offered by UV chemistry with an eco-solvent carrier. The durability, flexibility and high gloss finish print produced by the Vybrant F1600 will help companies to take their production performance to the next level and provide customers with quick turnaround jobs."

At FESPA Digital 2014, Fujifilm is displaying the Vybrant F1600 alongside its extensive range of euromedia materials to show visitors the variety of substrates that the printer can handle.

The printer will be commercially available in summer 2014.
