Fujifilm Europe has launched high-quality multifunction office printers, Apeos series, in Europe for the first time. The printers, developed by Fujifilm Business Innovation of Japan, will be shown at events being held on 9 April in Italy and on 25 April in UK.

The events will mark the arrival of the range in those countries, followed by a phased rollout initially in France and Spain, and then other countries in the coming months.

Fujifilm Business Innovation is said to be the number one supplier of A3 multifunction printers in the Asia Pacific region. Prior to the European launch, none of these devices had been available under the Fujifilm brand except in the Asia Pacific region.

Fujifilm will be offering the A3 multifunction printers, Apeos series, with a focus on productivity, reliability, and growing demands in the work environment. The printers are explained to provide uncompromising usability, enhanced security, with quick and simple operability to support user’s success in Europe.

Built on Fujifilm’s decades of print knowledge, the Apeos range is designed for the modern workplace. From remote/mobile printing capabilities to security features, including its BLI security validation (Keypoint Intelligence) and sustainability credentials, Apeos is a multifunction printer range capable of supporting digital transformation to meet the rapidly changing and diverse demands of the post-Covid environment.

A described key feature of the Apeos series is its quality. The series has a print resolution of 1200 x 2400dpi, capable of printing on versatile media with speeds ranging from 20-70 pages per minute. The range’s IReCT, digital image adjustment technology, minimises colour mis-registration. The useability/reliability of the range means accelerated operations with no wait time, supported by its described easy navigation with UI and attention light.

The series has adopted IH fusing technologies that reduce energy consumption. Also equipped with LED printheads that enables energy saving design, means the range of printers is sustainable. The developed super EA-Eco toner contributes to reducing power consumption achieving low-temperature fusing.

Advanced scanning functions support the digitalisation process with features including searchable OCR, automatic orientation of scanned page to upright position and correcting the skewed page or removing blank pages.

Taku Ueno, senior vice president, device technology division of Fujifilm Europe, commented, ’It’s hugely exciting to be entering the European office printer market after our entry into the toner production printer business in Europe in 2021. We’ve had tremendous success in the last three years introducing high quality Fujifilm branded production printers to the market, and the launch of our office printers is the natural next step.’
