|Fuji Xerox plumps for power of Memjet|
Fuji Xerox has become the latest company to announce a wide-format printer powered by Memjet’s waterfall printhead technology.
The Fujifilm and Xerox joint venture has developed a 1,066mm (42in) wide, roll-fed, aqueous inkjet single-pass printer that is being shown as a technology demo at Drupa.
The four-colour device can be seen on the Caldera stand (Hall 4, stand A14) printing on a wide range of media, from 85gsm coated stock to much heavier canvas and polyester-based stocks.
Caldera’s RIP is a key part of the equation as it is responsible for keeping pace with the very high data rate that is required to run the 1,600dpi printer at its 9m/min running speed.
A Fujifilm spokesperson said the company planned to launch the product in Asia Pacific later this year, primarily for the computer-aided design and graphic information systems markets.
However, Xerox, which is responsible for Fuji Xerox sales in the US, Europe and some emerging markets, is understood to be targeting the device much more towards graphic arts production.
This can be seen from the range of substrates and the type of images produced in the sample book on the Caldera stand, which includes prints on backlit film, polyester, canvas, mesh and lightstop, as well as on the live, on-demand demonstrations.
The printer’s print speed doubles to 18m/min when printing at lower 1,600x800dpi resolution, taking it from 14 A1 pages per minute (ppm) to 28 A1 ppm.
Pricing for the printer is not currently available and Fuji Xerox would not disclose the cost of the consumables, including the inks and printheads. The company did reveal that the printheads had an average life of 10,000 metres of print and that they would be user-replaceable.
The manufacturer added that the total cost of print, including all consumables and service costs, would be "very competitive" and that the company was aiming for a 2013 launch in the US, Europe and emerging markets.
The new printer has potential for multiple market applications
