Noritsu D701 Digital Dry  Compact Inkjet Printer minilab

   The D701 utilizes a revolutionary new inkjet technology that radically improves the dye ink process to provide sharp detail and brilliant colors, while producing long-lasting prints that resist deterioration from ozone and light. Ideal for both retail and studio environments, the D701 is an extremely compact printing system, taking up only 4.6 square feet of space. Two D701 printers can be stacked together to increase printing capacity without increasing footprint.

  • Newly developed ink system with 6 gradations per dot
  • A wide variety of print sizes from both sheet paper and roll paper
  • A variety of available system configurations

   Noritsu Koki Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of the D701, an environment-friendly compact dry minilab that, as a pioneer for new dry minilab solutions, is the ideal product for progressive printing businesses.

The D701 is a compact inkjet minilab that does not use any photofinishing chemicals, which means it is easy to install in just about any type of location, is easy to perform maintenance for, and is friendly to the environment. This space-saving printer opens the door for those who were previously unable to install silver halide minilabs due to issues such as limited installation space and chemical handling.

The D701 uses a 6 gradation per-dot dye inkjet system with precise dot control to produce vivid prints with a smooth portrayal of a wide range of colors.

The D701 can produce high quality prints in sizes up to 254 x 914mm (10 x 36 inches), with excellent lightfastness and glossiness that is sure to please even die-hard silver halide print *1) fans. It can be used for low or mid volume print services or as a supplementary printer for retail outlets with QSS minilabs installed. By connecting operation software and consumer terminals to the D701, you can obtain the same functionality and easily provide the same services as QSS systems. Regarding D701 consumables, ink and paper will be sold exclusively by Noritsu Koki.

The D701 will be proudly displayed at 2008 International CES *2) (held from the 7th to the 10th of January at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada) as well as at PMA *3) (held from the 31st of January to the 2nd of February in the same convention center as 2008 CES International)

D701 features

Friendly to the environment
The D701 does not use any chemicals, nor does it produce any waste solution. The absence of chemicals makes it not only environment-friendly but also user-friendly, as it can be installed almost anywhere and is easy to provide maintenance for.

Newly developed inkjet system - 4 colors, 6 gradations per dot *

This new dry printer employs a 4 color dye ink system with 6 gradations per dot to produce vivid colors, and it also uses a new technology that adjusts the size of the dots when they are ejected onto the paper. This enables the individual dots to be output in 5 different sizes, which allows for a range of 6 gradations per dot including the no dot (white) variation. The result is high quality prints with fine gradations.    
*) Inkjet technology was provided by Seiko Epson Corporation.
Long lasting colors
Prints made with conventional dye ink tend to fade quickly, but the new ink used in the D701 has an improved molecular structure so it is able to withstand light and ozone, thus producing prints that boast excellent image permanence.

Compact design

The footprint of the D701 is a mere 0.43 square meters (including the RIP PC). The RIP PC can also be separated from the printer, in which case the footprint of the printer is only 0.35 square meters. Furthermore, if the optional Double Stack Cabinet is used, you can install two printers in the footprint of one.

Prints up to 254 x 914mm (10 x 36 inches) *

This printer can produce photos in sizes ranging from 3R all the way up to 254 x 914mm (10 x 36 inches), enabling a wide variety of print services.

*A paper width of 203mm or 254mm is required for prints with an advance length that exceeds 457mm.
The maximum advance length for print widths of 127mm and 152mm is 457mm.


A capacity of approximately 650 prints per hour for the 4R (152 x 102mm) print size

In addition to its high capacity for 4R prints, the D701 also provides a capacity of approximately 250 prints per hour for 203 x 254mm (8x10 inch) prints and approximately 195 prints per hour for 254 x 305mm (10 x 12 inch) prints. This high capacity across the board makes the D701 a suitable solution for low to mid volume shops.

Print sorter unit (Option)

The print sorter unit, which holds up to 8 orders, enhances workflow efficiency.

Supports sheet paper

In addition to roll paper, the D701 also supports sheet paper ranging in size from 127 x 200 mm to 216 x 297mm. When setting both roll paper and sheet paper, it is possible to automatically switch between output from these two paper types.

Noritsu Koki’s AccuSmart™ technology enables you to easily portray the natural beauty of the scene as viewed by the photographer when the picture is taken.
