Iridesse Production Press 

Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific has launched its new Iridesse Production Press – a six-colour print engine utilising xerography that can hold up to two additional specialty dry inks.

Metallics, clear, and soon to be added, white dry ink, can be printed in a single pass on the machine that has been equipped with a Pantone+Metallic and Pantone+Premium Metallic colour library.

Compared to prints using only conventional CMYK dry inks, Fuji Xerox says: “Adopting special dry inks expands the range of expression, produces a premium finishing and provides more sense of seasonality of the printed images, which adds value for effective marketing activities.

“While conventional offset printing requires mixing silver ink to make metallic ink, this new product realizes simultaneous printing of several metallic colours during a single printing process.”

(Up): Gold is the bottom layer dry ink. (Down): Silver is the bottom layer dry ink.

The Iridesse Production Press uses High Definition EA Dry Inks, one of the world’s smallest particle size toners, for its CMYK processes, allowing images to be realized at up to 2,400 DPI.

The Fuji Xerox press also features high productivity on 400gsm thick paper at speeds of 120 pages per minute, as well as the capability to be connected to the Finisher D6 with Booklet Maker, Crease/Two-sided Trimmer D2 and SquareFold Trimmer D1 for booklet and leaflet printing.

Fuji Xerox Iridesse Production Press was released in the Asia Pacific region on November 1, 2017.
