FloriColor, based in Porto, has become the first Portuguese printer to invest in Fujifilm’s flagship Jet Press B2 inkjet press, and one of the first printers anywhere in Europe to invest in the brand new, third generation Jet Press 750S. The press will be installed in January 2019.
As the print market continues its steady trend towards digital, the need to be able to accurately print spot and brand colours on digital presses is becoming ever-more important. Traditionally in offset printing, additional spot colours are used to complement CMYK ink sets in order to more accurately print clearly defined brand colours, something that is not always practical, or even possible, with digital presses.
Originally founded as a copy shop near Hamburg University in the early 1980s, Mediadruckwerk is now a major full service print business employing 60 people and producing a huge range of quality products, from postcards and greetings cards, to brochures, calendars, posters, stationery, packaging, annual reports and high quality short run books. Offering an end-to-end service, the company’s capabilities include sheet-fed offset, digital print technologies and web-2-print as well as various finishing systems, graphic design and logistics. Operating out of a 3,500 square metre facility, the company is currently making a major investment in its future, building an additional new 2,000 square metre hall, which will house all of its existing digital print equipment as well as a brand new Fujifilm Jet Press 750S, which will be installed in early 2019.
Fujifilm today announces its third generation B2 inkjet press, the Jet Press 750S. With higher productivity of 3,600 B2 sheets per hour, and a range of other changes which further improve the already impressive up-time, versatility, colour capability and quality, the Jet Press 750S is now the fastest, full colour, B2 sheet-fed digital press on the market.
