Pitney Bowes Inc. announced new enhancements to its line of IntelliJet Printing Systems that are designed to increase the operational performance and quality range of the systems. These updates include new higher print speed options to help high-volume transactional mailers and service bureaus improve run times and operational performance to meet critical production deadlines for their valuable customer communications. Pitney Bowes will showcase these features at drupa 2012 in Dusseldorf, Germany (Hall 4 Stand 4C04).
The upgrades include:
-- An optional print speed of 244 meters (800 feet) per minute for monochrome production of customer communications for the IntelliJet 30 and IntelliJet 42 Printing Systems. At this higher speed, operations can produce 4-up letter applications at up to 6,982 impressions per minute and A4 applications up to 6,570 impressions per minute. Available as an option on new systems or as an upgrade to help customers enhance their investment as their business needs change, the 244 meters (800 feet) per minute speed provides additional capacity to process more monochrome documents per shift while maintaining outstanding print quality.
-- An option to double the speed of the IntelliJet 20 Printing System to 122 meters (400 feet) per minute for color printing of transactional statements. The 122 meters (400 feet) per minute speed provides additional capability to process more full color, personalized, 100% variable data documents per shift while maintaining outstanding print quality. The speed increase is available as an option on new systems or as an upgrade to existing systems.
-- An expanded paper printing range which includes coated papers to help in-house mail and print operations process more types of applications.
