As one of our most recent installations, our new Fujifilm Jet Press 720S is part of a very exciting change that is going on in the Route One Print factory this summer. We’ve invested approximately £1.5m into the creation of a dedicated business card production cell, which is due to begin work in a few weeks, and the Jet Press is to be the main component of that development.
Choosing a printer for our business card cell was a very important decision for us and some may be surprised by our choice. However, we are very excited to be pioneering this new, innovative use for ink jet technology, especially because this is only the fourth Jet Press 720S to be installed within the UK. Read on to discover why we think this printer is so special.
State of the Art Resolution
The Jet Press 720S is equipped with a new generation of print head technology to give ultimate image resolution and clarity. With 17 modular SAMBAtm print bars and 34,816 nozzles per bar, the Jet Press can reach 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. However, the overall resolution appears higher as a result of the four levels of greyscale that the ink droplets can be produced in. This means that a greater level of contrast can be reached to give more defined details in the print.
Image quality is further helped by the use of VersaDroptm technology which can manipulate the size and shape of each individual ink drop. This gives optimal precision for very fine lines and text as well as helping to produce smooth colour transitions. The Jet Press can achieve ink grains that are as small as 0.5 trillionth of a litre and are discharged at high speed (invisible to the naked eye). It’s this precision that achieves an incredibly high print performance.
