Opening New Markets with Sheet-fed Inkjet Systems

By Inkjet Insight / Published:

Sheet-fed inkjet is a small world populated with very diverse players. OEMs may be focused on displacing monochrome in transaction print, full color B2 toner devices or sheet-fed offset. They may also compete for attention with continuous web inkjet devices for buyer’s attention. This means the latest sheet-fed offers need to push the boundaries of higher speed, coverage, quality and media versatility while most previous market entrants were focused on delivering an entry-level cost.

Fujifilm J Press 750S

The J Press 750S delivers the industry benchmark in quality, reliability and repeatability through advancement in technology across all aspects of digital printing

Increasing the press speed to 3,600 sheets per hour and introducing a larger sheet size, the third generation J Press doubles letter size output over the previous version, making the new J Press 750S the most productive production inkjet platform available.

  • The J Press 750S leads the industry in productivity running the new larger sheet size of 23” x 29.5”, allowing for a 6-up imposition of 8.5” x 11” sheets, and at a full 3,600 sheets per hour for both static and variable data jobs.
  • The J Press also features fully automated Seamless Printing.  Operators gang, our group, jobs using the same stock and there is absolutely ZERO pause in between jobs keeping the press running non-stop.
  • Built on a robust offset frame, customers running the J Press report uptime in the neighborhood of 95%.  Most downtime is attributed to schedule head cleaning.
  • Fujifilms leading color management software, ColorPath SYNC and ColorPath SYNC Brand Color Optimizer are included with the purchase of every J Press.  Brand Color Optimizer enables you to optimize the entire Pantone library in just a few minutes for a given stock and never worry about it again.  The vibrant colors of J Press Vividia ink enables you to match nearly 1700 Pantone colors from the coated library on the fly saving time and money by not having to order special colors.
