Introducing Jet Press FP790 to support flexible packaging customer’s high productivity

TOKYO, March 25, 2024 – FUJIFILM Corporation (President and CEO, Representative Director: Teiichi Goto) announces the launch of the Jet Press FP790, a new water-based digital inkjet press for the flexible packaging printing market.

The Jet Press FP790, a new addition to the inkjet digital presses of the Jet Press series, offers customers in the flexible packaging industry high productivity and versatility. With the Jet Press FP790, customers can efficiently produce a wide variety of packaging, including food and household products, even in small volume orders. This is the first time Fujifilm has introduced a water-based digital inkjet press for flexible packaging.

The product supports customers’ high productivity with a maximum substrate width of 790mm and a print speed of 50 m/min. In addition to print heads for each CMYK*1 color, two white ink channels are equipped to improve the density of white. For the color printing, the based color greatly affects the appearance of the package. Through the density of white with two white ink channels, the product realizes the vibrant colors on the film substrates*2. Furthermore, by applying the processing liquid before printing, the ink has high adhesion to the water-repellent film substrates. In addition, the product enables high resolution printing with the 1200 dpi X 1200 dpi print head.

Flexible packaging printing commonly uses analog printing methods such as flexographic printing*3 and gravure printing*4. These methods require the creation of design pattern plates for mass printing with the same design. Digital printing, including inkjet printing, does not need for printing plates. Customers can directly send their design data to the printing press for printing. It enables the small‐volume production of a wide variety of products and flexible response to customer needs.

In 2011, Fujifilm launched its digital inkjet press, the Jet Press 720 (currently upgraded to the Jet Press 750S), to the global commercial printing market ahead of its competitors. The Jet Press series has been highly acclaimed for its high image quality that surpasses the offset printing, and the cumulative number of installed products is more than 300 in the world. Leveraging its inkjet expertise and equipment sales know-how accumulated in the commercial printing market, Fujifilm is now introducing the Jet Press FP790 for flexible packaging.

Fujifilm will continue to contribute to the development of the global printing industry by developing and providing innovative products for the printing market.

The Jet Press FP790 will be exhibited at the Fujifilm booth at drupa 2024, the International Printing and Media Industry Exhibition to be held in Germany in May.
