Fujifilm has launched a new comparison tool to show printers the economic benefits of the Jet Press 720S compared with offset printing.


GetFit shows printers which of their work is best suited to the Jet Press 720S

Based on a printer’s specific jobs and requirements, web-based app getFit can estimate the ink usage as well as the cost and speed of printing on both the Jet Press and an offset press.

The tool enables Jet Press sales specialists to process a variety of print files that represent a cross-section of work, as well as entering existing offset costs, to evaluate, job by job, which would be best run on a Jet Press and which would be best suited to an offset press.

Fujifilm digital printing and press systems product manager Mark Stephenson said: “We found that a lot of prospective customers were saying that Jet Press is great, and that the quality is fantastic but that they were frightened by things like the cost of ink, which is what everyone looks at with inkjet.

“They want to know how it works, where do the savings come from and how much do they spend on ink compared to other things – they’re not using plates so what’s the balance and where’s the payoff? And we wanted to present that without using spreadsheets.”

He added: “GetFit both divides a user’s work up and also shows them how much time they’ll save on their offset press, which opens up that press to take on more of the work that’s suited to it. There are so many customers that are using offset presses for work that’s not economic, so they can move that work over to Jet Press.”

Fujifilm will show getFit running in action in the UK for the first time this Thursday (19 July) at an open day event at its Bedford facility. To register for the event, visit: bit.ly/pw-fuji-jet.
