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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital 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.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
