At Graph Expo, Fujifilm launched its J Press 720 in the United States, while the innovative cut-sheet, inkjet press will be made available in Canada sometime during the first or second quarter of 2011.
First introduced as a concept press at drupa 2008, the J Press 720 is rated to produce up to 2,700 4-up size sheets per hour (10,800 8.5 x110-inch pages per hour), with the ability to run coated offset stock. It hits a top resolution of 1,200 dpi, using Fujifilm Dimatix SAMBA head technology with four levels of greyscale. Geared toward the commercial printing sector, the machine works with a maximum sheet size of 29.5 x 20.8 inches.
“No two print shops are the same, so at GRAPH EXPO 2010 we are really looking forward to helping our customers identify the right revenue-generating solution for their business,” said Todd Zimmerman, VP of Sales and Marketing, Graphic Systems Division, Fujifilm North America.
At Graph Expo in Chicago, the company demonstrated the press running live jobs for the first time in North America, while it was shown in production mode during the IPEX tradeshow in May of this year.
