Fujifilm XMF Workflow

Fujifilm’s XMF workflow is an end-to-end cross-media pure PDF and JDF workflow solution with tremendous flexibility and increased integration capabilities that provides printers the flexibility and ease-of-use they need, to increase their productivity, quality and efficiency.

Fujifilm Workflow XMF uses unique GUI client which incorporates all the functions required for operation in a single window such as pre-flight, page preparation, trapping, imposition, 2D and 3D viewing etc. This allows operator to access all the tools in the same window rather open one software to another for all this process.

"Today, it’s quite common for companies to have a variety of presses, both offset and digital, with widely varying capabilities that require them to utilise a variety of imposition schemes and, in many cases, multiple workflow solutions. Fujifilm Workflow XMF is capable of providing a single point of production that can easily produce jobs for both offset and digital, or a combination of both, within the same job. XMF workflow has the added ability to automate many of the processes which saves valuable time and enables printers to meet increasingly tight deadlines," says Padmakar Ojale, country general manager graphic arts at Fujifilm India.
