The new Revoria GC12500 is big enough to print six-up A4
Following an appearance at Printing United in the USA in October 2023, and an earlier technology preview at Igas in Japan in late 2022, Fujifilm’s new flagship B2 Revoria toner press will be presented to a European audience for the first time in late January 2024, at the company’s Print Experience Centre in Ratingen, Germany.
The Revoria Press GC12500 is the market’s first B2 sheet-fed digital press that uses dry toner technology, the B2 toner alternatives being HP’s ElectroInk liquid toner B2 Indigo models, or Xeikon’s SX series of dry toner web-fed presses. Fujifilm says it is now introducing an effective toner solution designed to make high quality B2 format digital printing, using in-house manufactured Super EA-Eco toner, even more widely accessible.
The Revoria GC12500 can print double sided on paper up to 750 x 662mm, which the company says is the largest B2 sheet size for a digital press in the industry, allowing six A4 pages per sheet. The press can handle paper weights from 64 to 450gsm and print on a wider range of substrates than the B2 JetPress 750S inkjet, including synthetic papers. Fujifilm says its has ‘dramatically’ 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, commented, ‘The introduction of the Revoria Press GC12500 marks a significant milestone for Fujifilm. It’s 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. We look forward to showcasing our latest developments across our full digital print portfolio at Peak Performance Print 2024.’
The Peak Performance Print event will also feature live demonstrations of the rest of Fujifilm’s digital press portfolio, which now includes options for all commercial and folding carton packaging print businesses. This will include the Jet Press 750S High Speed Model, the Jet Press FP790 flexible packaging press and range of Samba imprinting bars. Workflow solutions will also be a major focus at the event, including Fujifilm’s XMF PressReady, the company’s brand new digital workflow solution, and Revoria Flow DFE.
