The Revoria SC180 is an 80ppm press able to prints long sheets to 1200mm
Further to the launch of its high-end Revoria and entry-level Apeos-C toner presses earlier in 2023, Fujifilm has filled out the range with the addition of two further Revoria models, the Revoria Press EC1100 and the Revoria SC170/180.
The Revoria EC1100 is a 100ppm production printer that can support a wide range of applications thanks to its creative finishing capabilities and versatile media handling, including long sheets and heavyweight paper up to 400gsm (350gsm up to 660mm, 300gsm up to 864mm). It can manage products from thin folded flyers to thick business cards, as well as accommodating heavier weight and longer papers . The efficient media handling and versatility mean a wide range of customer needs can be met, including high speed envelope printing, without the need for an additional fuser.
10-bit processing within the press supports up to 1024 halftone levels instead of the 256 achievable with an 8-bit system, coupled with 2400dpi print resolution, for higher quality reproduction. In addition, graduation correction is used on images and vector graphics, to better reproduce fine tints, colour gradations and subtle blends, said to be especially valuable when printing colour gradients, skin tones and shadows.
The Revoria SC170/180 is a more compact 80ppm model but still a highly productive press, according to Fujifilm. It supports a wide range of paper sizes, from 148 x 98mm up to 1200 x 330mm banners. The Multi Sheet Inserter for banner printing can print single-sided long paper from 660 x 330mm up to 1200 x 330mm, depending on the configuration, and duplex up to 864 x 330mm, opening up new applications..
Taro Aoki, head of digital press solutions, Fujifilm Europe, commented, ‘Fujifilm has a 60-year heritage in developing toner technologies, so though we may appear to be a new player in the market from a European perspective, we have a huge amount of technological expertise to draw upon. This has allowed us to develop our market offering rapidly, and with these two new presses, we are now able to offer a full range of toner press solutions to suit all production and investment level requirements.’
The new presses will be installed at the Fujifilm Print Experience Centre, Ratingen, Germany and in demo centres in other European countries, including Spain and the UK. The presses will also be on display in September at The Print Show in the UK, C!Print (Spain) and Sign&Print (Sweden).
