OREANDA-NEWS. Fujifilm today announces that commercial and wide format printer, Greenshires Group, has installed a Jet Press 720S at its site in Leicester in September. With over eighty installations worldwide, Jet Press 720S technology has been well and truly embraced by the industry. Refined and enhanced in recent years, it remains unmatched as a commercially available, offset quality, B2 inkjet press.

A highly respected and experienced B1 litho and small format digital printer, Greenshires recognised the need for a high quality B2 digital press as they saw their business shifting rapidly to shorter runs of increasingly high quality.

Immediately after his return from drupa, Dalby arranged a visit to the Fujifilm Advanced Print Technology Centre in Brussels where he presented the Jet Press 720S with eighteen of the most challenging jobs he could come up with. “The quality of the results genuinely astonished me,” says Dalby. “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.”

Having explored all other options - including the upgrading of its existing digital press and holding talks with other suppliers and manufacturers - Dalby is convinced that Greenshires has made the right decision in investing in the Jet Press 720S. He concludes: “The Fujifilm team has been fantastic to work with through the sales process and they have handled the installation seamlessly. We're now in a position to be able to take on a range of high quality, short run work that we couldn't before - putting our business in the strongest possible position going forward.”
