New Delhi, 24 August 2021, Fujifilm India, a pioneer in print-imaging technologies, announces its Revoria PC 1120, a production color printing press it says is aimed at the high-end professional printing market. The Revoria PC 1120 can print up to 6 colors simultaneously in a single pass. Fujifilm was earlier part of Fuji-Xerox from which it exited (separated) about three years ago and is now manufacturing and selling digital presses under its name.

The Revoria PC 1120 press has a rated speed of 120 A4 pages a minute printing in 6 colors. In addition, the company’s press release states that the press’s output resolution of 2400 x 24000 driven by its 10-bit data server provides high-definition output. The Revoria PC 1120 will be sold and serviced by Fujifilm India’s local partner Insight Print Communications.

The Revoria PC 1120 contains a single-pass, 6-color print engine, with up to two special toners such as gold, silver, clear, white, pink, and textured coating toners that can be optionally used in addition to the essential CMYK toners. The company’s press release says these toners enable high-value, high-quality printing such as metallic colors, pop ups and can create overlays and underlays of designs by mixing special colors with CMYK – in addition to achieving natural skin textures.

Speaking at the launch of the new press, Kentaro Imafaku, head of Fujifilm’s Graphic Arts Department Graphic Arts, said, “At Fujifilm, the wheel never stops churning, and our developers remain in a continuous quest for innovation and creative design [to] benefit the customer in all the ways necessary. With the Revoria PC 1120, we set foot on another landmark in the printing industry by developing a printer that can print 6 colors at a pass. The demand for this product would be immense in the Indian market, and we are confident that our customers will be raving about this revolutionary product. At Fujifilm, we are committed to providing best-in-class services to our users at the most affordable rates in the market.”

The Revoria PC 1120 prints at a speed of 120 A4 horizontal pages a minute while achieving high definition, high-resolution images of 2,400 dpi with its Super EA-Ecotoner. The press release says the press uses the smallest toner particle size in the industry without specifying the size of the particles. It can print metallic colors like gold and silver with combinations in overlays and underlays that give various metallic shades helpful in decorating and improving print aesthetics. It can further run on non-paper substrates like films and metallic sheets because of its unique removal of static electricity from the substrate. It automatically divides or separates the image data into five colors – cyan, magenta, yellow, black (CMYK), and pink. (However, it is not clear if the static eliminator is standard or an option.) The fluorescent colors of the pink toner expand the color gamut significantly, thus resulting in vibrant printouts, especially on human images showing vivid colors together with smoother skin and flesh tones.

The overall product is designed to provide customers the best value for their money. The air suction feeder and static removal device provide highly stable paper feeding for a wide variety of papers such as paper containing concentrated amounts of paper dust, cohesive coated paper, and film. Additionally, it is claimed that built-in artificial intelligence (AI) enables automatic image correction of photo images. As a result, each photo image is said to be automatically enhanced.

The press release also states that the Revoria press supports various CMYK color standards such as Fogra, SWOP, and GRACoL. In addition, the new press supports a wide range of paper weights from 52 gsm to 400 gsm, and sizes from A6 to 330 × 488 mm are available, as well as full-bleed printing on SRA3 paper.

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.
