Press release from the issuing company

New platform makes its commercial debut at Viscom Paris 2014

Fujifilm today announces the commercial launch of the Vybrant F1600 at Viscom Paris 2014, France (9th - 11th September), following its preview at FESPA Digital earlier this year. The Vybrant F1600 is a new 1.6m roll-to-roll large format printer targeted at the sign industry, featuring Fujifilm's patented FUZE hybrid UV Ink technology. 

Fujifilm's FUZE ink technology improves the efficiency and performance achievable within a large format production environment. The UV ink component results in a durable film for high scratch resistance, while a low ink build offers increased 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 printing. 

The Vybrant F1600 is a four colour machine with a productivity of up to 18 m2/hour and guarantees adhesion to a wide range of substrates. It is ideal for printing vinyl or any other flexible material to create indoor or outdoor applications where durability and fast turnaround 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 sized large format printers." He explains: "Fujifilm's FUZE technology effectively integrates the unique benefits of UV chemistry with an eco-solvent carrier. The durability, flexibility and high gloss finish produced by the Vybrant F1600 will help companies take their production performance to the next level." 

At Viscom Paris Fujifilm is displaying the Vybrant F1600 alongside an extensive range of media to show visitors the variety of substrates that the printer can handle, including vinyl, PVC film, banner, backlit and canvas.
