IN IT’S FIRST YEAR, THE J PRESS 750S ACHIEVED DIGITAL PRESS AND ISO/ PAS 15339 MASTER ELITE LEVEL CERTIFICATIONS FROM IDEALLIANCE AND 2019 DIGITAL PRESS OF THE YEAR FROM SGIA

TALK ABOUT RAREFIED AIR. How’s this for achievements? Fujifilm’s J Press 750S recently obtained Idealliance’s Digital Press Certification and ISO/PAS 15339 System Certification. And if that was not enough, the inkjet press raised the bar by earning Master Elite status, making it capable of achieving all seven of the globally recognized ISO/PAS 15339 Reference Print Conditions.

The J Press 750S is now one of only two presses to ever reach this level of certification achievement (the other is Fujifilm’s J Press 720S.)

The Idealliance Digital Press Certification verifies a system’s ability to meet or exceed established industry standards for excellence—evaluating the entire press system, including the digital front end, print engine, and paper for testing and certification in areas of color, print properties and print production.

As for the other achievement, the ISO/PAS 15339 Certification certifies the capabilities of commercial digital press devices to meet the color space requirements specified by the Characterized Reference Print Conditions (CRPCs). ISO/PAS 15339 describes seven CRPCs, all of which have been created using G7® methodology to align the global print and packaging supply chains. G7 aligns Print AnywhereTM, with one calibration, one separation, one file and one aim point as the industry leading set of specifications for achieving near-neutral gray balance across all print technology.

The J Press 750S surpassed both the strict digital print production system requirements, as well as the ISO/PAS 15339 colormatic requirements serving as the industry benchmark in quality, reliability and repeatability across all aspects of digital printing.

Jordan Gorski, VP of global certification programs for Idealliance, says the achievement puts Fujifilm into a category of its own. “The J Press is ideal for print service providers looking to meet the most stringent demands set by print buyers and brands in printing, packaging and graphic communications.”

From an industry standpoint, the recognition elevates Fujifilm’s stature for delivering the technology today’s print providers need, says Ed Pierce, product marketing manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “This recognition reinforces Fujifilm’s J Press 750S and previous generation J Press 720S to truly offer the highest level of quality, breadth of color, versatility and accuracy in the market.”
