Fujifilm targets corrugated POP

Fujifilm has announced a new solution for producing point of purchase corrugated boards. This is a combination of the Inca Onset S40i with Fujifilm’s brand new, innovative Uvijet OC inks and a recently announced media handling system.
The new inks overcome the difficulty of distorted or owed substrates, largely caused by the tendency of the ink to sink into the substrate leading to poor print finish.
The handling system uses a ‘vacuum-to-vacuum’ transfer method for full automation. It utilises a robotic arm and camera system to distinguish the location and orientation of a stack (within 0.5mm), separate the top sheet and transfer it to the vacuum bed of the Onset without any gripping or squeezing which could leave marks on the outer edge.
Once printing is complete a second automated head also utilising a vacuum system picks up the printed sheet and drops it onto a delivery stack. With both heads working simultaneously, the productivity of the Onset is increased to over 500m2/hr.
Tudor Morgan, marketing manager for Fujifilm, says: “This combination of printer, ink and handling system enables our customers in the corrugated display market to be confident that they can produce an even higher class of POP displays than ever before”.
