Marketing services specialist, Reacon Group, has purchased the first FUJIFILM JetPress 1160CF in Australia in a deal confirmed at Drupa 2024.

Reacon Group managing director, Jay Khan, was at drupa in Düsseldorf to confirm the deal with FUJIFILM Business Innovation Australia general manager of graphic communication solutions, Chris Lynch and FUJIFILM Business Innovation Australia managing director, Yasuyuki Matsumoto.

“We bought the Jetpress 1160CF because we have previously been dealing with FUJIFILM across the SRA3 format. All of respective businesses within our group have been working with FUJIFILM for over 20 years and my personal relationship has been since day one in 2018,” Khan said,

“This is a brand new machine that will improve both our volume and production capabilities as it prints at 150 metres per minute, but the 1200 x 1200 output is the key and being able to deliver that in a duplex print is very important. We are a big direct mail business and we produce a lot of marketing material and the fact that it can also work with stock up to 225 GSM provides us with a lot of applications. We are also looking at some inline finishing products from third party providers to extend the capabilities of the machine.”

Khan confirmed the FUJIFILM Jetpress 1160CF is expected to be installed at either the company’s Canberra or Sydney site when the product arrives in July.

Lynch told Sprinter this was a significant sale for the business.

“We are delighted that Jay has made the investment in the Jetpress 1160CF. It is a testament to his faith in FUJIFILM and also FUJIFILM’s commitment to this business. A lot of the work from Jay and the Reacon Group is perfectly suited to the productivity and quality from the Jetpress 1160CF. This is an exciting time for the Reacon Group – they are a business that is expanding rapidly with high aspirations and great growth plans into the future and we want to be part of that journey. This is a logical extension of Jay’s involvement with the FUJIFILM business and we can’t wait to get started and get it installed,” Lynch said.

The Jet Press 1160CF is a continuous feed inkjet device capable of up to 160m/min productivity in full colour. The press can produce up to 20-inch wide images, which allows for SRA3 size print with bleed. Fundamentally the output from this press, after finishing, will be A4 to suit the needs of direct mailing applications. The device can be configured either in Roll-to-Roll (RTR) and Roll-to-Loose (RTL) to accommodate third party finishing devices.
