Xerox Corp. (Rochester, NY) announces the iGen4 220 Perfecting Press, comprised of two iGen4 110s running in tandem, now is is available worldwide (U.S. list price $1,212,550).

Because the engines are integrated inline, the system prints 220 ipm and approaches a monthly print volume of up to seven million impressions.

According to Jim Hamilton, group director, InfoTrends, “The two 110-ppm iGen4 print engines integrated into a tandem system provide an unsurpassed level of cut-sheet production for overall capacity as well as for quick turnaround, burst speed requirements. Driving this level of productivity at the required quality levels, while taking the utmost advantage of inline finishing assets, is a recipe for success. It is ideal for growing digital print applications such as photo calendars, training and educational materials, custom publications, personalized color postcards, transpromo and targeted catalogs.”

The system delivers twice the speed and productivity with a single operator. It has a smaller footprint and is more compact than two iGen4 110 presses sitting side-by-side. It also allows users to maximize their finishing equipment because one finishing device can be used to support two print engines.  Customers can upgrade an installed iGen4 110 press driven by Xerox’s FreeFlow Print Server to an iGen4 220 Perfecting Press.

The press builds on the tandem architecture technology of the Xerox Nuvera 288 Perfecting Production System.  A benefit of this design is “pass through programming” that keeps the system running even if an engine needs service, providing maximum productivity and uptime.

Additional features of the Xerox iGen4 220 Perfecting Press include:

  • Inline spectrophotometers in each engine, which provide for color accuracy and automate tasks such as calibration and press color check.
  • An array of in-line finishing capabilities.
  • Substrate flexibility up to 14.33 x 22.5 inches.
