Fujifilm speeds up Jet Press

Fujifilm has announced a new variant of its B2 inkjet press, the Jet Press 750S High Speed Model, which gains a new high performance mode that is said to be 1.5x faster than the existing 750S. 

Fujifilm is adding a new High speed mode to the Jet Press 750S.

The Jet Press is based on the chassis of a Ryobi – now RMGT – offset press and uses Fujifilm’s 1200 dpi Samba printheads. The current 750S can produce 3600 B2 sph but this new High Speed mode will allow customers to run the press at 5400 sph, which Fujifilm appears to have achieved by using a lower print resolution though the company won’t say what that resolution is. Fortunately for existing customers, the new high speed mode is a relatively straightforward field upgrade, which includes some hardware changes to the drying system to cope with the faster speed. Users should then be able to switch between the two speed modes for different jobs.

Mark Stephenson, Fujifilm Europe’s product manager for digital printing and press systems, says that the Jet Press is typically used for high value applications such as photobooks and luxury packaging and that this speed increase is designed to expand the range of work that the Jet Press can handle to include those jobs that don’t necessarily need the highest print quality but where the speed and cost are important factors. 

It’s possible that there may be further announcements to come on the Jet Press as Fujifilm is planning a separate online marketing event for later in this summer. The new High Speed version is due to be available from Autumn 2021. You can find more information on the Jetpress from fujifilm.com.
