Empowering women in a male-dominated sector such as healthcare and science in general is one of our goals at Fujiflm Europe because we believe in the power of diversity and inclusivity at the workplace.
Therefore, we can proudly share that we welcomed 12 young girls between 12 and 15 years old at our Fujifilm Europe Headquarters in Ratingen, Germany for Girls’Day 2023. The goal was to inspire and motivate the next generation of female leaders to break the gender gap in technical and scientific fields, the so-called STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics) professions.
Girls’ Day is an annual event that aims to increase the proportion of women in male-dominated fields and reduce the shortage of skilled workers in the industry. It is a day that is designed to provide young girls with the opportunity to explore a variety of STEM careers, interact with female role models, and gain hands-on experience in technology and science.
Through small games, test and feel of some of our products, especially those from our healthcare department, as well as a few theoretical background information, we wanted to show these girls what a career in this field could entail. Of course, they also had the opportunity to get an exclusive tour of our Open Innovation Hub to learn more about Fujifilm’s evolution from a camera-based company to shifting its focus to the healthcare sector.
It was not only a new and great experience for us as a company, but also our young visitors have made some unique experiences which might help them to decide which career path they would like to choose in the future.
Machine vision lenses have become an essential component in various industries, from manufacturing to quality control. These lenses allow machines to ‘see’ and capture images with high accuracy and precision. Among the many lens manufacturers in the market, why do people choose FUJINON lenses?
One reason is the wide range of product categories that Fujifilm offers. They are the only comprehensive lens manufacturer handling lenses in a wide range of sizes, materials, and shapes. Their lenses range from large to tiny aperture lenses, lenses for 8K and 4K high-definition TV broadcasting, interchangeable lenses, and cinema lenses for digital cameras. Professionals in the broadcasting industry worldwide recognize the high performance and quality of FUJINON lenses, as evidenced by their several Engineering Emmy Awards.
Another reason is the advanced technologies that Fujifilm has accumulated over its more than 80 years in the business. The company has been manufacturing high-precision lenses since 1940 and has since developed numerous products that lead the world. Fujifilm’s expertise in manufacturing, processing, assembly, and other technologies allows them to deliver consistent high resolution performance in a wide range of installation environments.
Fujifilm’s global network is also a notable advantage. With sales and production bases in more than 30 countries worldwide, the company develops its logistic marketing from a global perspective and provides quick and tailored local services at each base. This ensures that customers receive the best possible service, regardless of their location.
The total number of FUJINON Machine Vision Lenses produced is a testament to the brand’s quality and reliability. With more than 1.1 million lenses produced, the company continues to evolve technologically and address customer needs with a variety of products. Fujifilm lenses manufactured by bringing together the company’s state-of-the-art technologies are used at production and quality inspection sites all around the world.

The store offers a wide range of services including photo printing, album and book creation, personalized photo gifts and accessories, and even photo workshops.

With the rise of digital photography and the decline of film photography, the art of printing photos has somewhat been lost. The process of printing and displaying your photographs has become more difficult and less accessible, with many people opting to simply store their pictures on a computer or phone. However, the “Wonder Photo Shop” powered by Fujifilm Europe has created a new era of photo printing stores, bringing back the joy of printing and displaying your photos.
One of the most unique features of the “Wonder Photo Shop” is the Fujifilm instax range. This range offers instant film cameras and printers, allowing customers to capture and print their memories in seconds. The instax range has become increasingly popular over the years and is now available in many variations and colors, including the latest instax mini Link printer, which connects to your phone via Bluetooth.
