As market demands become more diverse and complex, manufacturing has entered a major period of transition. Now faced with the need for faster product development and lower costs, the site of manufacturing has come to require equipment and technologies that can respond to the short delivery times and low-volume production that link the prototyping and mass-production stages. As a new exhibitor, FUJITEX will demonstrate low-volume printers (UV-LED printer, latex printer) with the ability to print on various materials. Similarly, FUJIFILM Global Graphic Systems (FFGS) will also exhibit a UV inkjet printer (Jet Press 540WV) designed to print flexible packaging for low-volume, short delivery time orders. With its reduced levels of ink odor and bleed, two challenges for UV inks in the past, FFGS will also promote the machine’s high quality and safety.

Interest is also being focused on 3D forming technologies and measuring devices in terms of improving productivity. In this light, new exhibitors will present 3D scanning and modelling technologies, as well as solutions, under the umbrella of 3 Dimensions Scan Technology Association. Meanwhile, TOYOTEC will demonstrate a 2.5D scanner that can read the texture of leather and wood, as well as roughness information. We hope you take this opportunity to experience the “site” of the cutting edge of manufacturing.
