Fujifilm Releases New B2-Format Inkjet Press
Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division has announced the all-new, third generation J Press 750S, available in North America by year-end, with an unsurpassed level of productivity from this inkjet press; generating 3,600 B2 sheets per hour, for both static and variable jobs, with a new maximum sheet size of 23x29.5˝ (585mm x 750mm).
Fujifilm’s new flagship J Press 750S (known as "Jet Press" outside of North America) continues to lead the industry in innovation. Taking the core technologies of the 720S, the J Press 750S further raises the bar by adopting the company’s latest quality, productivity and environmental enhancements. The J Press 750S features industry leading Fujifilm Dimatix Samba printheads along with a 6-up letter size imposition and increased speed, delivering double the sellable output over the previous version. This is all accomplished while reducing the overall footprint by 15 percent and reducing energy consumption by 23 percent.
Fujifilm began offering the J Press digital inkjet series for the commercial printing field worldwide in 2011, the first press of its kind for this segment, and the innovation continues to be widely adopted in Japan, Europe, and North America, with more than 150 installations worldwide.
The J Press 750S delivers leading quality with innovative technology, including:
Outstanding image quality comparable to offset printing
Featuring the newest generation ultra-high density/high-precision Fujifilm Dimatix Samba printheads along with Fujifilm’s aqueous pigment VIVIDIA ink, the J Press 750S prints output that exceeds the quality of offset printing platforms. The 750S delivers exceptional flat tints, ultra-smooth gradients, perfect black tints, pin sharp text, ultra-fine line work and perfect flesh tones and has an extensive color gamut reaching upwards of 90 percent of the Pantone library.
High-speed output and larger sheet size
The J Press 750S prints both static and variable jobs at an industry leading 3,600 sheets per hour, which is 33 percent faster than the current J Press 720S, without any compromise to quality. With the larger sheet size of 23x29.5˝ the capacity from a four to six letter page imposition is a 50 percent increase over the previous generation.
Highly precise inline quality inspection
Much like the J Press 720S, the third generation 750S incorporates an inline scanning procedure of each sheet to insure quality throughout each print run. Further enhancing this capability, Fujifilm has introduced an optional full sheet scanning function which ensures that each printed sheet matches a pre-approved image quality standard.
The J Press 750S exhibits great flexibility for the widest array of growing segments. The J Press 750S comes standard from the factory as a commercial printing platform and can be field configured to print up to 24-pt. board stock. A variety of current J Press customers change their own configuration back and forth to gain the maximum flexibility and value from their J Press investments.
“With the new J Press 750S, you can now print a six-up letter-size imposition, and with the increase in speed, we have doubled the sellable output of our previous version,” said Ed Pierce, product marketing manager, Fujifilm North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “As a further advantage, the uptime on J Press is reported by customers to be near 95 percent, or greater, making the J Press the most productive production inkjet press in its class.”
The J Press 750S made its global debut at the IGAS 2018 International Graphic Arts Show, held in Japan, at Tokyo Big Sight, this past July.
