EFI’s new Fiery FS300 Pro platform.

EFI launched the next generation of its industry leading Fiery production printing platform at the Print 17 show in Chicago this week.

The company says digital front ends (DFEs) based on the new EFI Fiery FS300 Pro platform will drive presses across sheetfed, high-speed continuous feed, B1 folding carton, and corrugated digital production systems.

“With the trend toward shorter runs and faster turnaround times, digital print shops need systems that make every minute and every step count,” says John Henze, vice president of marketing at EFI. “Shops can double the processing speed on more types of jobs with Fiery HyperRIP enhancements on the Fiery NX Premium print server. Higher Fiery processing speed enables 10x the throughput than before on Fiery XB print servers, driving print engines all the way to 2,400 ppm and beyond.”

The Fiery FS300 Pro platform comes with a new, free Version 6 of Fiery Command WorkStation, billed as ‘the most popular production print job management solution in the industry,’ and estimated to be used by more than a quarter million print professionals.

A free download of Fiery Command WorkStation6 is available here.

Version 6 features a number of productivity enhancements, including:

  • The ability to manage a variety of printers across the production operation by connecting to Fiery Driven cutsheet, high-speed inkjet presses, and, in 2018, wide- and superwide-format printers.
  • Previews for all jobs and new search tools that provide faster ways to interact with jobs. Job views can also be customized to specific needs, such as by media, to help prioritize print production.
  • The ability to reprint a job faster and more consistently by using saved rasters on already printed jobs.
  • Home, a new view in Command WorkStation 6 that provides at-a-glance status of all connected Fiery servers and a snapshot of key print production statistics.
  • New versions of Fiery Impose, Compose and JobMaster fully integrated and accessed directly through Command WorkStation, which enables users to produce high-value print products more profitably, in less time and with fewer clicks.
  • Imposition layout is simplified and users can more easily create gangup layout templates to automate job imposition which can turn a 10-minute job preparation into 10 seconds.

“These enhancements just scratch the surface of what users will see with the new Fiery FS300 Pro platform and Command WorkStation 6,” said Henze.
