Fuji Xerox puts iGen technology into mid-level digital press

The manufacturer said the Color J75 Press would give small and medium-sized firms "more power to deliver quality at high speeds and more opportunities to take on additional work and grow revenue".

Many of its special features were requests from Australian printers, according to Fuji Xerox.

The Color J75 includes an automatic inline spectrophotometer, which contains an adjustment control mechanism that is designed to quickly correct discrepancies in density and colour variation.

Another feature, called Simple Imaging Quality Adjustment, "helps to automate press controls for greater ease of operation".

Product marketing manager Nicholas Chin said both features were unique to Fuji Xerox presses.

"Previously, features like these were only available on machines like the Color 800 or 1000 devices and, of course, the iGen presses," he said.

"A lot of the feedback we received from local print providers was focused on generating operational efficiency, keeping the press running for maximum periods of time."

The J75 maintains a rated print speed of 75 pages per minute on all stocks up to 300gsm, said Fuji Xerox.

It comes with the latest version of the Fiery print server, the FS100 Pro, which includes new functions such as image editing and previewing.

EFI vice-president of Fiery marketing, John Henze, said: "Fiery FS100 Pro addresses the needs of print providers to deliver vibrant image quality quickly, efficiently and cost effectively. The new Fiery digital front ends process complex jobs faster, including VDP files in all industry standard formats.

"We’re extremely proud to be bringing this next generation of Fiery technology to market in partnership with Xerox."

Printers can also spec out the J75 with an optional feeder, collator and finishing binder to make the workflow more automated.

The Color J75 Press is being released in conjunction with an entry-level Color C75 Press, which will arrive in Australia later this year.
