|Xerox Fastest-Yet Monochrome System
|As it prepares for Drupa later this year, Xerox launched its fastest yet continuous feed printing system that helps print providers capitalise on the high-speed, high-volume monochrome printing market. The new high-speed system makes it easier to produce books, manuals and trans-promotional applications.
The Xerox 650/1300 can print up to 1,232 duplex A4 images per minute. The system uses dry toner, xerographic imaging and flash-fusing technology - a unique process that does not use heat or pressure or make contact with the paper, allowing the device to print on a wider array of substrates than competitive systems. It is part of an array of offerings that Xerox will bring to drupa, May 29 - June 11, showcasing how graphic communications companies can expand their businesses and profit from growth opportunities in digital printing.
As the industry adapts to clients' needs for more environmentally sustainable approaches to printing, Xerox is highlighting its heritage as an environmental leader and as the company of choice that helps print providers "green" their offerings. To demonstrate its decades-long commitment to sustainability, Xerox is integrating green aspects into its 3,500 square-metre stand at drupa. The exhibit is built with environmentally friendly materials, including energy-saving lighting and re-usable components.
"We operate in an industry that puts marks on pages and, therefore, our business inherently impacts the environment," said Quincy Alle, president, Xerox Production Systems Group. "However, there are ways to minimise this impact through technological advancements and smarter work processes. At Xerox, we've practiced environmental stewardship long before it was popular to do so and our business has benefited as a result. At drupa and through ongoing outreach with graphic arts customers, we're helping the industry work differently so that the impact on the environment is less and the benefit to their business is more."
The company will focus on three key areas at drupa to highlight its competitive advantages in the digital printing marketplace and how customers benefit from Xerox's advanced offerings including:• Accelerated innovation in technologies, workflow solutions and business development services. Xerox's advanced digital printing technology, business development services and workflow solutions enable the just-in-time production of brochures, catalogues, statements, books, packaging and other collateral that can be customised for an audience from one to thousands.
• Industry-leading partnerships and profitable, productive applications such as direct marketing pieces, photo books and photo specialty, packaging, and specialty imaging for secure documents.• The opportunities for the commercial print market to become more eco-friendly through technology, toner, inks and paper that can reduce waste, decrease energy use and preserve the world's forests.
The Xerox 650/1300 is a natural fit for publishing applications such as books and manuals. New high-speed technology and a streamlined workflow yield the high productivity customers need, while sharp text and graphics ensure the professional look and feel readers expect. Xerox's patented Print Line Management helps operators view, manage and respond to every component in the print line from any print engine's touch-screen interface. Maximum resolution is 1200 x 600 dpi and an optional Xerox FreeFlow® DocuSP® print controller is also available. The system also features a wide print web that enables flexible imposition so users can print more efficiently and reduce costs and paper waste.
