(Rochester, NY) will debut its lates digital color production
press, the iGen4 EXP, at Graph Expo 2010. Built on the
award-winning iGen4 platform, it features new prepress and
finishing capabilities, as well as a larger cut-sheet format. The
new system boasts nearly 50% more image area than competitive
Order taking for the Xerox iGen4 EXP begins immediately with fourth quarter installations, and beginning in 2011 users can convert traditional iGen4 presses to iGen4 EXP.
“The high-end capabilities of the iGen4 press have allowed print service providers to push the boundaries of digital print and spur growth in areas such as direct mail, sales collateral and photo publishing,” says Eric Armour, president, Graphic Communications Business Group, Xerox Corp. “iGen4 EXP puts even more power in the users’ hands – set-up time is reduced, productivity is increased and new high-value applications can be created with 24/7 production.”
The 14.33 x 26-inch sheet size enables the production of multi-up jobs such as full-size trifold brochures, postcards and greeting cards, or extra large book covers and jackets. The larger sheet size prints 40 ppm and essentially accelerates the iGen4 system’s print speed to 120 8.5 x 11-inch (A4) ipm.
Stock can be fed from a modified paper tray or roll system. A Multigraf stacker collects the output of large sheets and stacks them in removable carts for easy delivery to cutting, coating and other finishing options.
Automated Web to Finish, with finishing partner C.P. Bourg’s (www.cpbourg.com) “Bourg Box,” makes touchless workflow achievable from ordering to finished product with no manual setup or intervention. The solution leverages Xerox FreeFlow Digital Workflow Collection, along with software and finishing options from Xerox business partners, to streamline the production process as orders come in, quickly changing and synchronizing production instructions as needed.
