FUJIFILM TO LAUNCH B2 TONER PRESS
Imaging giant Fujifilm is launching what will be the world’s first B2 dry toner sheetfed full-colour print system, with the Revoria Press GC12500.
Following an appearance at Printing United in the USA last month, and an earlier technology preview at Igas in Japan in late 2022, the capabilities of the Fujifilm’s new flagship Revoria toner press will be showcased to a European audience for the first time in January.
The Revoria Press GC12500 is the market’s first B2, sheet-fed digital press using dry toner technology, specifically the in-house manufactured Super EA-Eco toner.
It will print double-sided on paper up to 750 x 662 mm, which Fujifilm claims is the largest B2 sheet size for a digital press in the industry. This means it can print six A4 pages per sheet. It can also handle a variety of paper weights from 64 to 450 gsm and print on a wider range of substrates, including synthetic papers.
Fujifilm has also shortened a typical production line by consolidating the feeder, stacker, and control panel on one side for the press operator.
Taro Aoki, head of Digital Press Solutions, Fujifilm Graphic Communications Europe, said, “The introduction of the Revoria Press GC12500 marks a significant milestone for Fujifilm. It is the market’s first B2, sheet-fed digital press using dry toner technology, and is the end result of years of R&D and accumulated technological expertise.
“Building on the combined success of the Revoria series and the Jet Press 750S High Speed Model, it is the perfect addition to our growing range of digital presses to meet a wide variety of market demands, allowing us to offer the best of both toner and inkjet technology.”
The Revoria GC12500 is likely to have its global launch at drupa in May, where Fujifilm has just upped its stand space by 20 per cent, to 2,400sqm.
