Valhalla, NY–based Fujifilm North America Corp.'s Graphic Systems Division announces the Fujifilm Digital Inkjet J Press 720 was selected as a Must See ‘em in the Digital Presses – Production Color – Sheetfed category at Graph Expo 2010. This is the first time that the press is operating live in North America, drawing crowds at the show to see its winning combination of offset print quality and digital functionality.

“Fujifilm is pleased to have been selected as a Must See ‘em at Graph Expo 2010 and we are very grateful for the recognition,” says Sam Ota, division president, Graphic Systems Division, Fujifilm North America.

Printing up to 2,700 four-up sheet sizes per hour, or 10,800 8.5 x 11-inch pages per hour, the J Press 720 prints on regular coated offset stocks which allows for printing offset-sized sheets with a maximum sheet size of 29.5 x20.8 inches. This means the press will create new opportunities for digital print with applications such as gate-fold brochures, folders and more unusual page sizes, all down to run lengths as low as one. Print quality is 1,200 dpi and offers four level grayscale capability, which is achieved using Fujifilm Dimatix’s Samba single-pass piezo drop-on-demand inkjet head technology.

The J Press 720 also has an incorporated infrared drying system, which means no drying time is necessary after printing so sheets are ready for finishing.
