Xerox’s new CiPress 500 and 325 Single Engine Duplex (SED) Production Inkjet Systems make it easier for printers to produce lower volumes of transactional, direct marketing, catalogs, books and manuals – at a lower cost of ownership.
Unveiled at Hunkeler Innovationdays, the CiPress SED is a powerful single engine configuration – with many of the same features as the twin engine devices, the Xerox CiPress 500 and 325 Production Inkjet Systems. The CiPress SED’s compact configuration – suitable for operations with limited floor space – prints duplex jobs, one-up on a narrow 9.5" web at 500 or 325 feet per minute.
Using Xerox’s waterless inks, the CiPress SED produces vibrant, full-color images and graphics on low-cost, plain papers. An ink optimization mode reduces the amount of ink coverage on pages that have more text and fewer graphics. Ink monitoring reports let printers know the exact amount of ink used for precise job costing.
Increasing volume shifts can easily be adjusted between the single engine duplex and twin engine full-width mode, without purchasing an additional engine. CiPress SED can also help printers:
• Be more productive – with built-in automated closed loop self-correcting controls that improve uptime.
• Print more jobs – with Xerox FreeFlow® Print Server which handles complex variable jobs without sacrificing print speed. It offers native support for IPDS, PDF, PS and VIPP.
• Be environmentally responsible – with inks that are safe and non-toxic; output is certified “Good Deinkable” by INGEDE.
CiPress 500 customer takes advantage of digital technology
CW NIEMEYER DRUCK (CWN), a full-service production company based in Germany, purchased the Xerox CiPress 500 Production Inkjet System at drupa 2012.
CWN relied on the CiPress 500 to create high-value fashion catalogs with variable content, which generated up to 400 percent higher response rates than ones previously produced on offset.
They cite the device’s high-volume personalization, ability to run on plain paper and offset-comparable image quality as key benefits.
The CiPress Single Engine Duplex configuration will be available for worldwide order taking at Hunkeler Innovationdays, Feb. 11-15 in Lucerne, Switzerland; customer deliveries begin in April.
