Fujifilm launches new UV inkjet label press

Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division had a preview of its new Fujifilm Digital UV Inkjet Label Press LP350 at the Label Congress 2021 on September 29th and 30th.

The LP350 is designed to meet the growing demand within the prime label market for short-runs, high quality and variable content. By combining newly introduced UV inks with a powerful inkjet print engine, this new press offers the optimum combination of productivity and quality available on the market for a digital label press.

By using CMYK as well as orange and violet inks, the LP350 is capable of hitting 94% of the Pantone color gamut, necessary for the prime label printing market. In addition, double white inkjet channels enable high levels of opacity for a wide variety of label applications. With the ability to print at a resolution of 600 x 600 dots per inch (dpi) with a 4-level grayscale and interstation UV pinning, the LP350 boasts exceptional print quality.

The LP350 has the capability to print at 50mt/min (164 ft/min), regardless of the number of colors or media types required for the print job. The press will be available in both 330mm(13”) and 228mm(9”) widths to adapt to customer needs. Additionally, the set up time and process for changing media types is simple, quick, and happens in minutes, further maximizing user efficiency.

Showcasing its versatility, the LP350 features newly introduced UV inks that have various resistant properties including surface durability, light fastness, and water and chemical resistance specific for label applications. The inks also offer excellent print reproducibility, density, and vibrancy, and can be used with a variety of commonly used label substrates, such as clear supported and unsupported films, foils, metalized materials, and coated/uncoated papers.

Other key features include corona media treatment, built-in static elimination equipment, media cleaning, full variable print ability, chill roller for shrink applications, and end-of-press UV curing system.

The LP350 also implements Fujifilm ColorPath Sync cloud-based color management tools which 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. From a digital front end perspective, Fujifilm has collaborated with a premier digital front end and software leader in order to provide a comprehensive, and efficient production solution in order to meet the high market demands of the label market.

The LP350 press is scheduled to be released in early 2022.
