Following the announcement of the new Jet Press 750S High-Speed Model at virtual.drupa 2021, Fujifilm will host the first live demonstration of the machine in action on 27 July 2021 at 10.30 am UK Time. 11.30 CET.

The First look event, hosted at the Fujifilm Advanced Print Technology Centre in Brussels, will demonstrate how users can quickly and simply switch between high performance and high-quality modes. Attendees will also learn which mode is best suited for a range of jobs, considering the ink savings and the time savings of the high-performance mode and the fact that there is no need to use the Rapid Coagulation Primer.

Fujifilm’s Jet Press 750S high-speed model is the upgrade version of the current 750S

Mark Stephenson, Product Manager, Digital Solutions, Fujifilm Graphic Systems Europe, says: “The Jet Press 750S, and its predecessor the Jet Press 720S, have been setting the standard for digital quality in commercial print for some time now. The quality and the up-time were already both so good that we looked beyond incremental improvements and turned our attention to the speed and found a way to make it significantly faster.

The new high-performance mode opens up a world of possibilities for longer print runs that would usually have been litho printed in the past. Still, crucially, users of the new model will retain the ability to deliver high margin, high-quality short-run work as well. It offers commercial printers unrivaled flexibility in a rapidly changing market.”

The Jet Press 750S high-speed model, which is also offered as an upgrade to current 750S users, will be commercially available in Europe in the autumn.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
