Fujifilm to Showcase Workflow and Software Innovations at Graph Expo

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Booth # 3213 will feature inkjet solutions, new releases of XMF Workflow, and integration with Metrix and PACKZ  

HANOVER PARK, IL – FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division is focused on Graph Expo 2014, and will feature live presentations and interactive demonstrations of workflow and software within their “Now You Can” themed booth.   

Fujifilm understands that workflow is a crucial function that sits at the heart of every print operation, whether offset, digital or a combination of the two. 

Fujifilm’s XMF Workflow version 6.1 will premiere at Graph Expo. This newest version is one of the first systems to utilize Adobe’s scalability framework, known as ‘Mercury RIP Architecture,’ to increase speed and performance.  XMF Workflow is a powerful and flexible production hub that is built around PDF and JDF technologies, along with Adobe APPE technology, to offer a rich set of capabilities in pre-flighting, color management and automated imposition. XMF Workflow streamlines a print facility by automating the work for greater efficiency and productivity, and it’s CIP4 certified.

Fujifilm will also debut on the show floor XMF Remote version 10.1, which is now 100 percent HTML5.  XMF Remote is a powerful job submission/job approval tool, allowing XMF Workflow users the ability to offer their customers online job upload, pre-flighting, proofing, and approval abilities. XMF Remote enhances the efficiency for expediting the approval process, and streamlines production.  

“We will offer hands-on demonstrations of workflow and software solutions on the show floor that meet customer needs for everything from design to proof, to RIP and print," said Jason Kammes, business development manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “Launching two all-new versions of XMF Workflow and XMF Remote at Graph Expo is exciting, and our highly regarded portfolio of solutions continues to set the standard within the industry.”  

ColorPath SYNC is a suite of state-of-the-art cloud-based color management tools that align output devices to designated color targets. ColorPath SYNC incorporates optimized color correction and a simple, step-by-step interface to achieve industry-leading results in creating and maintaining color output device alignments, including G7 and ISO. 

Metrix streamlines and automates the entire planning and imposition process with a single, user-friendly application. Metrix is specifically designed to eliminate the complications of planning a number of jobs, especially those with custom-sized work, and enables a novice planner to create complex layouts, confidently and with consistency.  

Hybrid Software and Fujifilm have recently announced an agreement to bring native PDF editing to the packaging market. Fujifilm is now a distributor of Hybrid’s award-winning PACKZ native PDF editor and related products. Fujifilm will be featuring PACKZ with XMF Workflow on the show floor at Graph Expo. PACKZ provides tools for the complete packaging and label production workflow. Highlights of this functionality are the ability to create technical separations including spot varnishes, complex trapping and trap editing, and automatic step and repeat to CAD die structures for folding carton work.   

Advancements in production inkjet will also be highlighted in Fujifilm booth # 3213, including samples from the J Press series, along with wide format innovations from the Acuity LED 1600 to the Inca Onset line-up, and also label samples from the hybrid UV inkjet press Graphium. 

With an ongoing commitment to develop new and innovative products and solutions, and the ability to showcase and demonstrate these technologies, Fujifilm has nearly completed a significant renovation at its Chicago Technology Center, located in Hanover Park, Illinois. A portion of the live presentations on the show floor will provide highlights of the all-new, over 20,000 square feet facility. The renovated technology center will feature everything from traditional offset printing to the latest technologies in flexography, wide format, and production inkjet solutions.
