Fujifilm Corporation together with Fujifilm and Heidelberg extend their industry leading positions with the first showing of a new B1 format inkjet printing machine to be demonstrated at drupa 2016. 


“In record time, Fujifilm and Heidelberg have jointly developed the world’s first B1 truly industrial inkjet printing machine,” says Gerold Linzbach, CEO of Heidelberg. “Our partnership was based on a joint evaluation of Fujifilm’s core inkjet technology, and after two years of co-development, we remain convinced Fujifilm is the best partner.”


The new print engine design will incorporate Samba state-of-the-art MEMS printhead technology from Fujifilm Dimatix Inc. Fuji film’s water-based pigment ink with rapid technology for high-definition imaging will meet food packaging safety regulations.
