FUJIFILM JPress 720
With the look and feel of an offset press and the versatility and job handling of a digital device, the Fujifilm Digital Inkjet J Press 720 features a standard half-size sheet format with a paper delivery and exit like that of a traditional offset press. The press is particularly suitable for traditional commercial printers looking to improve competitiveness for short-run work and digital printers who are looking to offer a wider range of digital print services.
Combining the best features of both offset and digital printing, Fujifilm's JPress 720 is revolutionizing the graphic communications industry. With a 29.5”x 20.8” sheet and a speedy output of up to 2,700 sheets per hour, it's the perfect solution for printers looking for a product that has the quality and robustness of an offset press as well as the versatility to handle even the shortest of press runs.
The J Press 720 uses Fujifilm Dimatix’s SAMBA™ single pass piezo drop-on-demand inkjet head technology to achieve an impressive true 1,200dpi x 1,200dpi resolution with four-level gray scale (minimum size: two picolitres), a specification unobtainable from any other digital printing system. The press’s four-level gray scale capability boasts colour and quality never previously seen from a digital device. An integrated controller incorporates an advanced colour management system and colour calibration capabilities that maximize colour consistency without requiring excessive intervention or expertise from the press operator.
The J Press 720 print speed is up to 2,700, 29.5”x20.8” sheets per hour, resulting in a product that offers offset quality and robustness plus the versatility to handle short press runs. The J Press 720 prints on coated offset stocks, allowing for printing on standard offset-sized sheets, a key advancement over most inkjet and digital presses which often require uncoated or pre-treated papers.
The Fujifilm Digital Inkjet J Press 720 has an incorporated infrared drying system, which means no drying time is necessary after printing so sheets are ready for finishing. The range of finishing options available is also much wider than with many other digital print technologies. Once imaged, sheets can be treated like an offset sheet, dropping into existing finishing equipment.
Quality is enhanced through Fujifilm’s unique “anti-curling” and “rapid coagulation ink” technologies, which deliver vibrant images and prevent paper curl and dot gain. The J Press 720 uses water-based, eco-friendly ink so there is no toner pile-up, resulting in an offset-like finish and quality. The water-based inks also mean the unit requires less cleaning and produces less waste. Outstanding quality is achieved sheet after sheet since the J Press 720 provides sustainable image quality with the use of a CCD sensor which scans every sheet and makes any necessary alteration in real time.
