Following a technology preview at Fujifilm’s Advanced Print Technology Centre in Brussels in late 2022, Fujifilm has announced the commercial availability of its ApeosPro C series. Built on a next-generation platform, the range is designed to produce superb and high quality print on a wide range of substrates and for a wide range of creative applications.
Featuring the world’s first high resolution LED printhead, and Fujifilm’s Super EA Eco toner, this new range is equally at home in a corporate office, design agency or light production professional print environment.
All printers in the range are designed for rapid, on demand printing, helping companies to take advantage of time-sensitive business opportunities. They can produce flyers, brochures, catalogues and a range of other marketing collateral, including banners up to 1.3 metres in length, and are also ideally suited to the production of confidential, high quality printing that cannot be outsourced (such as samples or product mock-ups). All printers can use a wide range of paper types, including: lightweight paper, cardstock, post cards, embossed paper and envelopes.
The ApeosPro C Series also benefits from the world’s first (utilising dry-electrophotographic toner, as of March 2021 and according to Fujifilm research) high resolution (2400 x 2400dpi) LED printhead, which creates incredible, high definition print via a very thin LED beam. The exposure unit does not vibrate because there is no drive mechanism, meaning image reproduction is incredibly stable, and the LED printhead itself consumes very low levels of energy, leading to lower power consumption, and lower operating costs.
As well as the high resolution LED printhead, The ApeosPro C Series also benefits from the use of Fujifilm’s Super EA Eco toner, which features in Fujifilm’s higher end production devices. In combination, the Super EA Eco toner and LED printheads produce ultra-smooth gradations, vibrant colours, and facilitate the reproduction of images with very fine lines and text. Furthermore, an additional ‘Gloss’ function brings a beautiful glossy finish to print where required.
The range includes three models: a standard model, the ApeosPro C750, a premium model, the ApeosPro C810, and the ApeosPro C650, which will offer an additional, ultra-accessible entry point for businesses with lower production requirements.
Mark Lawn, Head of POD Solutions, Fujifilm Europe, said, ‘We were excited to preview this series at our Peak Performance Print event in Brussels last year and delighted that we’re now able to announce commercial availability. Whether to support collaborative working securely in the office, to produce high quality marketing materials, or to produce brochures and promotional materials, the ApeosPro C series will enable a wide range of businesses to take advantage of the superb print quality and diverse range of applications it offers. We’re delighted to be bringing the benefits of Fujifilm technology to a broader range of users who, despite not having production-level print volumes, still need a solution which doesn’t compromise their quality requirements and media versatility.’
