Two industry's first features.

Designs featuring speciality colours with the shine of eye-catching gold, silver, and metallic.
IridesseTM Production Press - the industry's first*1 6-colour print engine - realises these printing expressions on demand, which were done mainly by offset.
High productivity, outstanding image quality, a wide media latitude, and the reliability of the production flagship model featuring unprecedented power of expression make a solid difference in your business.

IridesseTM Production Press was designed to raise the possibility of digital printing to a new stage. High-quality and colour-rich printing expressions including highly reflective metallic colours provide added values not only to creators but also to all of those that are in the printing business.

Six colour print engine that brings unprecedented power of expression to digital printing.

In addition to CMYK Dry Ink, the press can load a maximum of two Specialty Dry Ink stations. As Specialty Dry Ink, choices of Gold, Silver, White*1 , and Clear Dry Ink are available. The press can print multiple special colours such as gold and silver in a single pass. The industry's first 6-colour print engine provides rich colour expressions opening up the possibility of print business.

Dry ink technique that enables industry's first 6-colour print engine
HD EA Dry Ink*2 - boasting the world's smallest class of size - realised the difficult technique of fusing 6-layer Dry Ink on substrate while maintaining high productivity, outstanding image quality, and a wide media latitude. Small and high elasticity Dry Ink particles being controlled at the molecular level provides smooth high-definition images. By enabling low melting of various types of Dry Ink such as Gold Dry Ink and Silver Dry Ink with improved highly reflective metallic colours, the press evenly prints any colour for high definition images.

Underlay with speciality dry ink realises offset-like metallic colours.

Fuji Xerox made it possible to print Specialty Dry Ink under CMYK Dry Ink for the first time in the industry. Underlay with Gold or Silver Dry Ink mixing with CMYK Dry Ink realised highly reflective metallic colour. You can get the power of expression almost as good as speciality inks and foil stamping of offset, on demand.

Innovative CMS*1 realised metallic colours that are almost as good as offset ink

Our innovative CMS (patent pending) reproduced the characteristics of metallic colours that represent different tones depending on the sight direction. The technique to manage the colour reproduction in multiple sight directions realised highly reflective metallic colours closer to those of offset inks.

*1Colour Management System.


Specialty Dry Inks increase the capabilities.

A variety of metallic colours that you can choose from the colour palette.

Highly reflective metallic colours that can be realised by the Specialty Dry Ink are preregistered, and you can select them easily from applications. Metallic colours found in colour catalogues such as PANTONE® METALLICS Coated and PANTONE® PREMIUM METALLICS Coated*1 , as well as choices of highly usable Fuji Xerox metallic colours are available. You can customise a colour or create a new colour.

Make speciality colour applications easily and quickly with digital printing.

Digital printing enables handy and speedy design of applications using speciality colours, which would take time and cost with offset.

  • Multicolour printing and finishing in single pass:
    This press handles printing and finishing in single pass, for a job that uses speciality colours, for which other machines would take multiple steps. You can efficiently make highly value-added applications.
  • Many speciality colours can be easily used:
    You do not have to set each speciality colour ink on the printing machine. With this press, you can easily use various speciality colours because the press creates metallic colours by combing Gold Dry Ink or Silver Dry Ink with CMYK Dry Ink.
  • The colour of the Specialty Dry Ink is customer replaceable:
    By allowing the user to replace the Dry Ink, the four Specialty Dry Inks*1 have become more easy to use.
    *1Gold, Silver, White (to be supported), and Clear Dry Ink.

White dry ink and clear dry ink bring new possibilities of design expression.

The press comes with White Dry Ink*1 of a high brightness and opacity that contrasts favourably with dark stock or other special substrates. Underlay with White Dry Ink realises CMYK colours without being affected by the substrate colour. Clear Dry Ink*2 creates a glossy-feel finish like varnish. You can expect an eye-catching design effect.

Design using speciality colour exercises its value in variable printing.

The use of Specialty Dry Ink for variable printing of direct mail, invitation cards, and the like provides added values such as a high appealing power required for one-to-one marketing. Using the press with our FreeFlow® VI Suite*1 , you are able not only to print personalised documents fast but also to get printed texts that are only visible with an infrared camera or under UV/black-light with ordinary CMYK Dry Ink. Unique visual effects that provide basic level of fraud protection.

*1Optional software.

Outstanding image quality for your expression.

High printing resolution that realises high-definition images.

The high printing resolution of 2400 x 2400 dpi prints the gorgeous colours with fine dots that this press expresses without losing their beauty. More advanced VCSEL - ROS*1 realises both a high productivity of 120 ppm and high-definition images.

*1Vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers.

Fine expression of texts, thin lines, and gradations with the 1200 X 1200-DPI X 10-bit RIP rendering.

The 1200 x 1200-dpi x 10-bit RIP rendering reproduces smooth texts, thin lines, and gradations of the source material without degrading the image quality. Combined with the excellent hardware performance of IridesseTM Production Press, which is a production flagship model, this feature realises one of the best image quality among Fuji Xerox products.

Selecting different screens of individual objects for optimum image quality.

Various screens are available, from which you can select the suitable one for each object such as a text and photo. The FM screen of Fuji Xerox is effective for moire. Granular roughness that tends to occur on FM screens is suppressed by the dot arrangement suitable for the xerography profile, realising a smooth image quality.

irridesse am vs fm screen

Clear printing of small texts and thin lines.

Edge enhancement:

Jaggy, which tends to occur on midtone texts and lines, is suppressed by screen processing on contours, reproducing crisp texts and lines.

Adjust Invert Text/Line Weight:

In these processes, the press mitigates crushing of white texts and fattening of black texts when the texts are small. Several levels of Dry Ink amount are available for selection for applying to the contour, so that you can set a desirable balance for better readability of texts.

    An attention light on top of your press unmistakably lets you know the status from a distance. LED colours are designed based on Colour Universal Design to make them identifiable for most people.
  2. Specialty Dry Ink
    A Specialty Dry Ink can be placed for underlay and overlay*4 on the left and right of the CMYK Dry Ink.
  3. Overcoat photoreceptor drum
    This features the overcoat photoreceptor drum, which is designed to enjoy a long life with an overcoat treatment on the dram surface. It provides stable and high quality of images with 1.5 times the life of our earlier models.
  4. Large-diameter two-layer intermediate transfer belt
    The seamlessly structured transfer belt, which provides high quality of images, enjoys two times the life of our earlier models.
    Double fly wheel:
    By suppressing the vibration of the transfer belt that occurs when paper enters the transfer belt, this feature provides stable transfer on heavyweight paper, which tends to have strong vibration resulting in uneven transfer.
  5. Reliable paper feeding
    Air assist:
    Injected air feeds sheets one by one to reliably feed them.
    Multifeed detection:
    A sensor monitors paper transfer to make sure that two or more overlapping sheets are not transferred.
  6. Belt-roll fusing unit
    This device fuses Dry Ink reliably on the papers that runs fast. It steadily transports papers with an excellent peeling mechanism that also works for lightweight coated stock that tends to stick to the belt.
  7. Monitor with improved operability
    The monitor of the printer allows you to operate the print server as well. A monitor arm provides improved usability allowing you to operate on the monitor from different angles.
  8. Steady run of papers
    The paper path is designed mostly straight to achieve a lower stress on paper that runs fast. The paper path enables the steady run of heavyweight stocks and extra-long sheet*5 as well.
    High-accuracy registration:
    This feature guides the fast fed paper to the same path to achieve highly accurate front-to-back registration.
    Deburring device:
    While papers are running, this device deburrs trim edges of papers, which damages belts, to prevent uneven printing caused by scratches on the belt.
  9. Inline cooling module
    This module is equipped with a large heat sink. The excellent cooling effect on papers having heat-fused Dry Ink helps to prevent sticking of stacked papers as well as curling and waving that hamper steady run of papers.
  10. Twin decurler
    The twin decurler determines on a real-time basis the curl of each paper, which varies depends on the media type and toner coverage. This feature helps the steady run of papers by automatically correcting the upward and downward curls with appropriate intensity.
