The Jet Press 720S is transforming a growing number of commercial print and corrugated packaging businesses around the world, and this spring UK printers have an opportunity not to be missed.
During May, Fujifilm UK will be holding a 21-day Open House with a difference. Instead of the usual “canned” demonstrations, printers will be able to book a full morning or afternoon slot on a Jet Press 720S in Fujifilm’s Bedford showroom.
Says Keith Dalton, Managing Director of Fujifilm Graphic Systems, UK:
"We are so impressed with the quality of the Jet Press that we invite printers to see it for themselves, running their own work. I challenge any customer to bring their most difficult jobs and put it to the test."
In addition to morning and afternoon slots throughout the month, there will be three open days to be held on the 4th, 11th and 18th of May. For these days, anyone can book ahead and come and see the machine for themselves; print samples will be available and experts will be on hand to answer any questions.
Offering the best possible quality in digital print with minimal effort (make-ready time is a mere 1.3 seconds), the Jet Press 720S remains unmatched as a digital B2 format press with all the benefits of offset paper handling, offset levels of quality, variable data printing capability and exceptional reliability. With the ability to be configured to print on substrates up to 0.6mm thick, the Jet Press 720S is also proving revolutionary to entrepreneurial printers in the corrugated packaging sector. Launched in 2014, this press remains a truly unique proposition. Dalton concludes:
"Commercial and packaging printers around the world are waking up to the fact that ‘business as usual’ is not an option if they are to secure their future for the long-term. We all know that print runs are getting progressively shorter and that customer expectations on turn-around times are becoming ever more demanding. To meet these challenges – without a trade-off on quality – businesses need to think differently. The Jet Press 720S offers a unique opportunity to do just this and now UK printers can test the full capabilities of the press in person. I urge them to come along and see it to believe it."

Jet Press 720S customers – in their own words:
"We’ve been looking closely at the advances in digital printing technology for some time, but until now we hadn’t seen a platform that we felt offered quality at a level that justified the cost of investment. That’s all changed with the Jet Press 720S, which we think is about to blow away its closest competitors."
Jon Doidge, Kingfisher Press, Suffolk
"I am what you might call a litho purist, and even with the great strides in digital print technology of the last few years I still tend to be sceptical of the extent to which it can truly match litho for quality. In the Jet Press though, Fujifilm has delivered a B2 inkjet press that is not only a genuine quality match, it also works like a litho press fitting into our existing workflow systems with minimal disruption."
Richard Dalby, Greenshires, Leicester
"Traditionally, clients in the packaging industry have doubted the ability of a digital press to match the quality of litho or flexo printing. However, our customers have been hugely impressed with the quality of the products we have produced on the Jet Press 720S. The feedback we have received has been universally positive and we are very confident that this will continue."
Mohamed Toual, Packaging4Professionals, Fleurus, Belgium
"The Jet Press up-time, at around 90%, is exceptional, and has allowed us to significantly reduce our delivery times, something many of our customers have noticed and commented on."
Mario Perl, posterXXL, Munich, Germany
"Every sheet you get from the press you can sell, which means no waste, and waste costs a lot of money. When we need to print 20,000 sheets a day, I have complete confidence that it will print 20,000 sheets a day. Other machines might do 24,000 one day, but only 5,000 the next because there is a problem. As we are a 24/7 operation, we need machines that work and that we can rely on. The Jet Press 720S offers litho press quality, it is built well, and just doesn’t break down."
Francisco Martinez, Straub Druck & Medien, Schramberg, Germany
"We have now found a machine that can help us grow our business substantially, allowing us to offer our customers the quality they have come to expect from offset, with all the time and cost savings of digital."
Nick Fincher, Emmerson Press, Kenilworth
"The Jet Press 720S has given us the opportunity to move into new markets. It’s a machine truly designed to deliver short runs profitably, and allows us to offer a range of print products that will lead the market, rather than just following."
Sandra Haket, Impressed Druk en Print, The Hague, Netherlands
