TPO-free Fujifilm inks at Labelexpo 2023

To make a change, it’s not enough to keep up with the time, you must race against it – and look further. On 11-14 September, Fujifilm shows a new definition of printing quality presenting its UV inkjet technology for label and package printing at Labelexpo 2023 in Brussels.

As pioneers in UV inks, we’ve made a breakthrough by using TPO photoinitiators to achieve the best printing results. Due to the recent regulatory change in Europe, we re-thought the approach and now we are the first to introduce our innovative TPO-free ink solution.

It allows our original equipment manufacturers benefit from lower heat output and gives them an opportunity to avoid SVHC substances in their products. What’s important, new formulations ensure the same extraordinary speed, quality and high performance as traditional TPO-containing inks while fully complying to the latest sustainability regulations.

“Born in a Diamond Mine”: essay for the future

A 25-year-old Dutch photographer Isa de Jong presents her on-going photo project ‘Born in a Diamond Mine’ at Encontros da Imagem in Braga on September 15-18.

Using photography, drawings and notes, she portraits the face of Gen Z – with its personal and in-depth stories, dreams and fears planted in times of a crisis, environmental disasters, and global technological change. She aims to create a time capsule bottling the honest and vulnerable truth told by her contemporaries about their vision of the future. Through collaborative portraits, she offers a unique glimpse into their anxieties and uncertainties while also uncovering the shared experiences and lessons they’ve learned during the project.

Isa’s talent have been recognized by FOTODOK, which has selected her as one of the participants in the FOTODOK TALENT EMBASSY program. Thanks to the Pictoright Fund’s support, Isa and nine other emerging photographers got the opportunity to develop their skills and show their work at international photography festivals.

During a pop-up presentation at Palácio do Raio, she will display selection of portraits and handwritten notes beautifully printed and sponsored by Fujifilm Original Photographic Paper. We are happy to help with the preparations and support the project.

The works will be on display from September 15 to September 18 at Palácio do Raio, Braga. Save the date!

Namibia implements Fujifilm Synapse RIS/PACS system

The moment we realize that not everyone has the same fortunate and lives the same life as we do, projects like this seem so much more important as we might have imagined in the first place.

On June 27, 2023, Fujifilm South Africa and medical distributor Uni Medical Supplies have implemented a significant project in Windhoek, Namibia, aiming to improve healthcare across the country. By implementing Fujifilm’s Synapse RIS/PACS system, together with Uni Medical Supplies, we have been able to connect five state hospitals across the nation, allowing for the remote diagnosis of patient data. The commissioning ceremony was The event was held at the Mercure Hotel, Windhoek and was attended by numerous dignitaries, including Dr. Kalumbi Shangula, Namibia’s Minister of Health and Social Services.

The Fujifilm Synapse RIS (Radiology Information System) and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) platform ensures the efficient management of information related to radiological examinations across hospitals. The RIS platform helps with the scheduling and reporting of radiology appointments, whereas imagery acquired from there, whether CT scans or x-rays, is then digitally stored on the PACS system. Through the Fujifilm Synapse RIS/PACS system, all the data and imagery doctors need can be viewed digitally almost immediately, allowing for the ability to remotely diagnose patients from outlying areas. This not only shortens the time frame for treatment, but also addresses the availability of healthcare for remote patients.

Our European Headquarter – Brick by Brick.

As a child I used to play a lot with LEGO; it kept me busy for hours and hours. That’s probably the reason why I wanted to become an architect; but life decided otherwise. Later on, other interests showed up and I didn’t touch any LEGO at all for over 30 years.

Then suddenly, in November 2017, dark clouds gathered when my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. For a moment our world stopped turning and we had to rely on doctors and an intensive treatment to fight this poison inside. Almost 15 months later, the sky cleared again, and good news came our way. Although you can never be certain again when it comes to health, we could start making new plans for the future. And so, my wife bought me a LEGO set: The Big Ben (London). This was her way of saying ‘Thank you’ for being there for her, in difficult times. And as from that moment, my interest in LEGO was triggered again; and even much stronger than ever before.

Quickly I realized I needed a bigger challenge and so I decided to start designing my own creations. First, I made a small version of our own house. After a successful attempt to make the 4-Cylinder tower of BMW Headquarters in Munich (almost 1m high and 13000 parts), I focused to build a replica of BMW-dealership De Schepper in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium. Several months and hundreds of working hours later, the general management decided to put my creation (19548 parts) in their showroom.

I already worked 20 years for Fujifilm Belgium (FFBE) when I had the chance to support the European Compliance Team in Germany. On May 24th 2022, I had to visit my German colleagues in Ratingen. I drove on the Balcke-Dürr-Allee, turned round the last corner and there it was… the impressive new building of the Fujifilm European Headquarters. Immediately I knew, this had to be my next LEGO-project! After a few weeks of thinking and a lot of ‘try and error’, I could finally start building. I chose a particular part in Dark Transparent color which I would use for each window. During my next visit to Ratingen, I measured one window and so I could determine the final scale. Each side of the building had 25 windows and so my MOC also had to have the same amount on each level. Although the building looks like a simple square, several challenges had to be solved, like the descent to the underground garage, the stairs in front of the lobby, some unusual angles, the trees and plants,… Four months later, the result was much better as I could have imagined. A few lamps next to the entrance of the garage and the European, Japanese and German flags would be the finishing touch.

Welcome to the Fujifilm Print Experience Centre Germany

It is finally here – The new Fujifilm Print Experience Centre (PEC) Europe, bringing together the most advanced technologies and products from the Graphic Communications and Photo Imaging divisions. Last week, we finally opened the doors to our PEC at our Fujifilm Europe Headquarters in Ratingen, Germany.

We welcomed roughly 100 guests who had the chance to get the first public glimpse into the Fujifilm world of printing. The innovative concept aims at elevating the value of the print medium through integrated experiences ranging from photographic to industrial prints.

The PEC represents a real “call-to-action” for all visitors, a collaborative space where they can imagine and experience the present and future of the printing industry in all its broadest forms. Additionally, it will offer training and demonstrations to Fujifilm customers and partners, as well as the opportunity to evaluate and experiment with varied media and receive support to achieve optimal printing results.
