Fujifilm India held a launch event on 7 December for its Revoria Press PC 1120 in India at its India Distributor,  Insight Print Communications premises in Faridabad in the Delhi NCR. The high-end digital press can print up to 6 colors simultaneously with the two extra colors beyond the standard CMYK. There are six extra colors inks or toners which means that a great number of special effects can be created accurately. The Revoria is now available for sale in India and customers are welcome for demonstrations at the Fujifilm Demo center located in Faridabad. 

The Revoria print engine can print at 120 pages a minute on media from 52 gsm to 400 gsm. It can print on substrates including colored, clear, transparent, photo media and label stock, metallic, and textured paper. Cartons, textile tags, security printing, can also be produced. The print resolution at 2400 x 2400 dpi implies high quality.

Revoria – revolutionizing the digital printing arena

The one-pass, 6-color print engine, prints CMYK plus two special toners such as gold, silver, clear, white, pink, and textured. These combinations are claimed to enable high-end print applications such as metallic colors, pop-ups, labels, natural skin texture on non-white and clear substrates, to produce high-end invitation cards and photographs apart from standard commercial print applications.

The Revoria’s Super EA-Eco toner is claimed to have the smallest toner particle size in the industry. These can be combined in overlays and underlays for a variety of metallic shades. The press can handle and print on films and metallic substrates because it has a unique technology for the removal of static electricity. 

Fujifilm’s Revoria automatically divides the image data into five colors – cyan, magenta, yellow, black (CMYK), and pink. The fluorescence of the pink toner expands the color gamut significantly, helping natural images, with smoother skin tones. The company says that it could open up the cosmetics industry with precise colors and tones of red, pink, magenta, and orange.

Claimed by the company to provide value for money, the Revoria features an air suction feeder and static removal device. Additionally, Artificial Intelligence (AI) enables automatic image correction for photo images. Each photo image is automatically enhanced with attention to skin tones and blue skies.

Ajay Aggarwal, managing director of Insight Print Communications commented on Revoria’s versatility, “You can use your imagination to use all these colors and give a very high-end output to your customers. This is a designer’s press – all he has to do is open up his creativity and he can do wonders with this machine.

“Till now the labels being printed digitally were mainly CMYK, which means that they were printed primarily on white substrates, but with this press, we open up the label industry to print on transparent substrates to produce pressure-sensitive labels.

Revoria’s Flow workflow software

To support printing companies in their expansion and increase productivity with new applications, the Revoria Flow software contains built-in AI for improving the photographs, an imposition that saves media and improves productivity. The high-end server allows for up to 20 user clients simultaneously.

Speaking at the launch, Kentaro Imafuku, head of Department, Graphic Arts Division at Fujifilm India said, “At Fujifilm, we are always working towards giving the best of technology to our customers. With the Revoria PC 1120 now available to our Indian customers, we are excited to help our customers in the printing business grow many fold.”

Koji Wada, managing director, Fujifilm India added, “We are extremely excited about expanding our business range that has been designed to empower the potential increase in the positivity of the printing experience for our customers. This incredible printing machine will allow you to explore infinite possibilities and expand your creativity.”

Aggarwal observes, ”As we are trying to get into multiple areas of digital printing, we have tied up with Fujifilm for the Revoria. We are coming up with a revolutionary concept of SSMC or Service and Spares Maintenance Contract wherein customers will get the services based on click charges but will purchase the toners/inks as per their needs – opening up possibilities for the offset printer to control the costing while going digital.”

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.
