More than ten years after the first iteration of Fujifilm’s flagship B2 inkjet press, Fujifilm has continued to listen to market demands and the needs of its customers to make the Jet Press even more versatile and flexible so that it can be used for a greater number of print jobs, in addition to its well-known ability to produce the ultimate industry-leading print quality.
New High Value mode
As a result, the company is introducing a new High Value mode which offers a third production option in addition to the High Quality and High Performance modes already available. The new High Value mode sits in between Jet Press High Quality and High Performance modes. It prints at the same resolution as High Quality mode (1200 x 1200 dpi native resolution), but without the need for the rapid coagulation primer (RCP). This intermediate level will be ideal for applications that do not require the ultimate highest quality that the Jet Press High Quality mode can produce, and as it uses no RCP, running costs are reduced, offering even greater flexibility to users.
Benefits for packaging converters
In addition to the new High Value mode, Fujifilm is also now introducing the option of increased feed and delivery stack heights to the Jet Press 750S, bringing multiple production benefits to both commercial and folding carton packaging print businesses. The additional 300 mm height means 1,000 extra sheets of 300μm folding carton board (an increase of 37%) can be used. This also has the added benefit of increasing non-stop running time to over an hour for folding carton stock, and to more than two hours for thinner commercial stocks.
Both the High Value Mode and the increased capacity options will be available from early 2023.
Taro Aoki, Head of Digital Press Solutions, Fujifilm Europe, commented: “Print businesses need flexibility. They need to be able to adapt, from one day to the next, to rapidly changing and often unpredictable market demands. With the addition of the High Performance mode to the Jet Press, we were effectively able to offer the benefits of two presses in one, allowing users to pivot between very high quality, short-run work, to more mass market, longer run jobs. Now, with a third High Value mode, and the ability to handle higher volumes of non-stop printing, we’re bringing yet more flexibility to our customers, all within one machine.”
