The graphic systems division of Fujifilm Corporation based in North America recently announced the launch of its new digital inkjet press. Jet Press 750S will be available in North America by year-end. The press is capable of printing 3600 B2 sheets an hour, for both static and variable jobs, with a maximum sheet size of 23” x 29.5”.

The J Press 750S features the Fujifilm Dimatix Samba printheads along with a 6-up letter size imposition and increased speed, delivering double the sellable output compared to the earlier version. The overall footprint is reduced by 15% and the energy consumption by 23%.

The J Press 750S delivers better quality with innovative technology, including good image quality at par with offset printing. Featuring the new-gen Fujifilm dimatix samba print-heads along with Fujifilm’s aqueous pigment VIVIDIA ink, the J Press 750S prints output that has the potential to exceed the quality of offset printing platforms. The 750S delivers flat tints, smooth gradients, perfect black tints, sharp text, fine line work and superior flesh tones and has an extensive color gamut reaching upwards of 90% of the pantone library.

The J Press 750S at its optimum speed is 33 percent faster than the current J Press 720S, without any compromise in quality. The sheet size of 23″ x 29.5″ the printing capacity increases by 50% as compared to the previous generation. The machine can be field configured up to 24 pt. Board stock.

The third generation 750S incorporates an inline scanning procedure of each sheet to ensure quality throughout the print run. Further enhancing this capability, Fujifilm has introduced a full sheet scanning function, one that ensures that each printed sheet matches a pre-approved image quality standard.

Ed Pierce, product marketing manager, graphic systems division, Fujifilm North America Corporation, said “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. As a further advantage, the up-time on J Press is reported by customers to be near 95 percent or greater, making the J Press the most efficient production ink-jet press in its class.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
