Reduce ink usage, increase production efficiency with XMF workflow

XMF is Fujifilm’s suite of powerful workflow and production tools. It includes several components that provide resource savings through reduced ink usage and better production efficiency.

XMF ColorPath Ink Optimization

XMF ColorPath is a cloud-based colour management system that is designed to help printers calibrate and maintain compliance to printing standards. ColorPath Ink Optimisation is a tool for reducing ink usage, but at the same time can improve print consistency and stabilise print runs.


Print at the same quality with less ink

In an image, greys and blacks can be printed using a mix of cyan, magenta, yellow and black. XMF can automatically replace a mix of CMYK with an equivalent amount of just black. This reduces the total amount of ink used without compromising colour, image quality or even the ability to match ISO 12647/2.

  • Less ink used: Material savings

Increase end to end production efficiency

ColorPath Ink Optimisation is a tool for reducing ink usage, but at the same time can improve print consistency and stabilise print runs. Print drying times are reduced, so jobs can be transferred to finishing quicker. Together with faster press make readies, this result in faster end-to-end production.

  • More efficient production: Labour savings

XMF Remote

XMF Remote adds powerful web browser-based online job submission, previewing, approval and output control to Fujifilm’s XMF cross-media workflow.


Automated pre press workflow

XMF Remote improves the efficiency of getting jobs through production by enabling you to increase automation. Clients upload, pre-flight and approve the job themselves through a web portal. All approved pages are then instantly and automatically prepped for CTP or digital output, minimising any delays and maximising productivity.

  • Less staff required for production: Labour savings
  • Faster job turnaround: Labour savings
  • Increased production capacity: Labour savings

Example savings with XMF software products

Savings quoted are in comparison to typical offset production environments and may vary depending on a printer’s specific situation. Calculations are based on an assumption of 20,000 sqm/year plate production.
