Xante to Dish Up a Digital Buffet for the Senses, Including New Excelagraphix and iQueue Technologies, at PRINT 13

Award-winning manufacturer Xanté is doing more to even-out the print, flexo and packaging technology playing fields than it ever has before, with the PRINT '13 debut of two solutions that raise the stakes for quality and speed at unprecedented price points.

The world's leading provider of the most affordable, easy-to-use, commercial-quality hardware and software will debut the new Excelagraphix 4200 P Series, powered by Memjet; and a new version of the robust and scalable iQueue Workflow, both at its PRINT '13 booth #5007. CEO Robert Ross says that customer demand dictated that Xanté fill the remaining exhibit space with its popular Impressia Digital Multi-Media Press, the Excelagraphix L850, Ilumina 650GS and PlateMaker 6.

It all happens at PRINT '13 on September 8-12, 2013 at McCormick Place, Chicago.

"Chicago's winds of change are blowing from the South this September at PRINT," says Ross. "Our new Excelagraphix Series is going to turn wide format inkjet inside out, effectively upping the ante on every function that matters, beginning with truly blazing fast speed.

"Also," Ross continues, "in addition to having more color power than should be legal in a Workflow as affordable as iQueue, we will be announcing a major development on the iQueue front."

As always, PRINT '13 attendees who visit will enjoy live demonstrations of Xanté products.    

NEW! Excelagraphix 4200 P Series

The Excelagraphix 4200 P Series wide format inkjet printing system changes everything the industry knows about high speed full color printing; particularly on extremely thick media. The system features Memjet Waterfall Printhead Technology™, which delivers more than 3 billion drops of ink per second, for unparalleled print speeds up to 12" per second.

A new adjustable feed path allows users to print on extremely heavy media, including foam and corrugated board up to 1/2" thick. Also new is a removable sheet counter, providing a much larger surface for feeding over-sized sheets, and a new auto cover lift allows quick and easy access when performing routine maintenance.

By including the newest iQueue 8 Workflow with the Excelagraphix 4200, Xanté is giving its customers a complete, turnkey system with workflow software that allows operators to manage multiple digital files, make critical color adjustments, apply imposition, estimate job costs and other functions that optimize the capabilities of the printer.

High-End Workflow Software Brings Unparalleled Color Handling

The newest Xanté iQueue will put workflow and color aficionados on alert. This latest release features a unique, all-in-one RIP-workflow with color handling and built-in intelligence that puts five- and six-figure workflows to shame. Color, file management and print quality controls are all engineered specifically for digital color printing. The multi-user interface and advanced features automate complex prepress tasks, help to eliminate costly mistakes and improve digital print quality.

Xanté says another iQueue workflow announcement is forthcoming.

All Xanté digital output devices are driven by the iQueue Workflow, which manages complex digital files, makes critical color adjustments, applies screening and imposition, and much more. While one of the most advanced yet easy to use workflows on the market today, iQueue is bundled at no charge with all Xanté devices.

Several popular Xanté products that will run live in the PRINT '13 booth #5007 include:
