Fujifilm Sericol has launched Sericol JJ UV LED inks in India at Labelexpo India 2018.
Rajesh Gandhi, general manager, Fujifilm Sericol, said: ‘Fujifilm has been testing the Sericol JJ ink with Illumina UV LED lamps and found exciting results. With the Sericol JJ ink system, printers can now achieve speeds of 150-170m/min, much quicker set-up time, increased productivity and less wastage in the printing process.’
He added: ‘Fujifilm Sericol has partnered with UV lamp manufacturer Illumina. Their UV LED lamps can be retrofitted on an existing press, which can save 80 percent machine power consumption compared to conventional UV.’
When asked about Flenex FW water wash plates, Gandhi said: ‘Fujifilm Sericol India has now taken full responsibility to promote Flenex FW water-wash plates in Indian market. These plates are performing exceptionally well globally as they can be processed in less than 40 minutes as compared to the existing solvent digital plates which take up to three hours to process.’
Of Labelexpo India, Gandhi said: ‘We see more footfall this time and it is a better show. Printers who have installed new machines have visited the show to see new technology. We are pleased with the response received on the show floor.’
