FUJIFILM COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY

Higher Durability

ZX has improved durability by using Extreme Adhesive Bonding Technology for longer press runs that allows the user to expand the range of work being done with a processless plate while delivering better stability on press.

Improved Visibility

Fujifilm’s new High Color Generation technology improves the readability and visibility of job contents, job number and other critical markings for prepress and pressroom associates thereby reducing errors and improving production.

Robust Scratch-Resistance

Processless Gumming Technology treats the aluminum surface to significantly reduce the risk of handling scratches and the resulting scratch ink stain. A key time savings feature endorsed by press operators.

Fast Output

ZX is designed with Print Control Layer Technology to provide speed and stability. The result is faster, more stable press startups to save time & reduce waste while improving press utilization.

We saw probably about a 50% decrease in our make ready times than what we were previously doing. And that was the first thing that he saw once he started rolling up the machine.

It just seems to be a better dot. The color seems to be popping more. It’s more vibrant. We’re able to match the proof a lot better. It depends on the quality of the job and how much covers on job, usually between two and 5,000 copies. Compare from the old plates to the new plates, we’re roughly saving about three to 4,000 wastes on make-ready. They seem to be pulling up a lot cleaner and we’re able to sell them within a few thousand copies.

One of the things that we’ve noticed and that we’re thrilled about is the increased durability of the ZX plate and not having to worry about those minor scratches and dings, and also just the longevity of the plate itself. We’re able to continue longer runs than previously with the new ZX plate. Minor imperfections or dings are never wanted on a print job. With the new ZX plate, we were able to notice that those are no longer an issue and we’re able to get longer press runs than we were previously.

Moving to a process-less plates was important to us for a variety of reasons. First and foremost is the ability to save steps and save time and money. Also, being environmentally friendly is very important to us. Removing that step from the production of plates was a great move for usā€¦Once we switched to the ZX plate, we immediately noticed the press operators were able to see the image on the plate much clear. They had a better idea of what exactly they were going to be printing.

Fuji is a brand that I can trust, I believe in. And when they say it’s scratch resistant, then you can trust that.

So we just got this new ZX plate in and I’ve run it a couple of times and it seems to work really well. I’m really excited about it. The best thing about this is the visibility before it goes on the press, that you can actually see the image and you can inspect the plate before it goes on the press. So the level of detail that you can see on this plate is incredible. It’s almost like the process plates that we used to have.
