Fujifilm partners with Henkel to enhance its Jet Press FP790 digital inkjet flexible packaging solution

Supplier News

Fujifilm Graphic Communications has announced a partnership agreement with Henkel, a global leader in adhesives, sealants, and functional coatings for packaging.

The collaboration will benefit customers of Fujifilm's Jet Press FP790 digital inkjet flexible packaging solution, which is scheduled to be commercially launched later this year, by providing both production and sustainability advantages.

Henkel's portfolio of laminating adhesives was extensively tested during the development of Jet Press FP790, and Fujifilm has chosen Henkel's solvent-free laminating adhesives as its recommended solution due to the outstanding results and positive outcomes achieved during post-press tests.

The Jet Press FP790 features water-based inkjet print technologies and delivers high-quality 1200 x 1200 dpi image reproduction, reproduces more than 90% of the PANTONE colour gamut, and includes two dedicated white inkjet channels for high white opacity.

Commenting on the partnership, Manuel Schrutt, Head of Packaging, Fujifilm Graphic Communications EMEA says: "With the challenging demands of the flexible packaging market, particularly the short turnaround times and regulatory requirements, we wanted customers of our Jet Press FP790 to be in the best possible position to maximise the production opportunities from day one. Working with such a renowned global brand as Henkel, and having access to its market leading laminating adhesives and the support of its technical team, has enabled us to undertake thorough post-press testing of flexible packages produced by the Jet Press FP790. As a result, future users of our new digital packaging solution can rest assured that when using Henkel's solvent-free laminating adhesives, press compatibility, optimum bond strength and lamination properties will be guaranteed for a wide range of flexible packaging applications."

Visitors to Fujifilm's stand at Interpack 2023 (Hall 8a, Stand F65) can view examples of post-press lamination solutions using Henkel's solvent-free laminating adhesives range along with the new Jet Press FP790 digital flexible packaging solution.
