Following the ultimate parting of the ways with Xerox over the aborted merger in 2018, Fujifilm’s line of ‘own brand’ toner presses has finally become available in the UK, as of 1 April. This includes the Revoria and ApeosPro C series that have been commercially available in Europe for nearly two years.

The Revoria PC1120 is a 120ppm SRA3 toner press offering 2400 x 2400dpi resolution, able to handle papers from 52 to 400gsm. An optional banner mode extends the sheet length to 1200mm and the printer supports up to six colours, which may include metallic, clear and fluorescent toners; the similarity in specification to Xerox’s Iridesse is not surprising as that was originally developed by the now-defunct Fuji-Xerox joint venture. A slightly faster mono-only version, the Revoria E1 series, offers up to 136ppm and otherwise similar specifications. Various bulk feeding and inline finishing options are offered for both.

The Revoria line is complemented by the ApeosPro C series, which are light production CMYK-only printers offering up to 81ppm with similar resolution and paper handling up to 350gsm.

The Revoria range has sold well in Europe according to Fujifilm, and to support anticipated growth, the company has appointed Spencer Green as Head of POD, UK. Mr Green brings a wealth of expertise, including 15 years significantly contributing to the UK professional print sales success of Canon. He will report directly to Andy Kent, Division Manager, Fujifilm UK.

‘After long anticipation, we’re excited to be bringing the Revoria brand to the UK,’ said Mark Lawn, Head of POD Solutions, Fujifilm Graphic Communications Europe. ‘Customers across Europe are already enjoying the benefits of these versatile, high quality presses with their huge potential for creative applications and I am excited to see this continue across the UK.’
