FUJIFILM Speciality Ink Systems (FSIS) is a global leader in the development of inkjet systems for wide format applications, for distribution worldwide through Fujifilm sales channels. FSIS also develop UV inkjet inks for industrial and wide format OEMs directly.
The large research and development team in Broadstairs, supported by an inkjet integration group based in Cambridge (FCEF) and the Fujifilm research centre in Japan, work together to optimise product performance, exploiting their unmatched understanding of ink chemistry, print applications, media, printheads and UV curing.
Since the launch of the first UV inkjet system, and through continuous R&D investment, Fujifilm chemists have learned a huge amount about UV inkjet design. Combining printhead and performance specifications with in-depth application expertise, they create inks that are tailored to a specific application and optimised to work perfectly with a particular printhead.
Inks are rigorously tested in the laboratory and in production environments where prints are tested for jetting reliability, print quality, production performance and weathering to ensure they meet Fujifilm’s stringent performance and quality assurance standards.
The FUJIFILM Cambridge Engineering Facility (FCEF) is a wholly owned division of FSIS, which was set up in 2011 as a centre of excellence to provide innovative printing solutions to the digital graphics industry. Working in partnership with the research and development team in Broadstairs, they are tasked to:
The manufacturing facility at FUJIFILM Speciality Ink Systems’ Broadstairs site occupies 8000m2, with an additional 4000m2 of finished product warehousing space.
Fujifilm uses a sophisticated manufacturing process where the need for consistent high quality permeates the entire production process.
Inkjet ink production is carried out in a process controlled, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. This recognises the equal importance of both the ink formulation and the production process, and provides controls over every aspect of manufacture to ensure consistency.
FSIS has invested significantly in alternative methods of reducing its environmental footprint at its manufacturing site.
This work has played its part in FSIS being accredited to the Environmental standard ISO 14001, in addition to the Quality standard ISO 9001 and twice being awarded the Best Process Plant ‘Best Factory Award’.
