Xanté has announced availability of the new Ilumina 502 Digital Production Press, a high capacity version of its best-selling digital color press. Equipped with a 530-sheet cassette, which has the ability to handle up to 12"x18" paper, the Ilumina 502 Digital Production Press supports automated production of on demand color prints including oversized, ultra thick cover jobs. The new Xanté lumina 502 Digital Production Press makes its debut here at the On Demand Expo (booth 2424).
"In 2009 the market needs higher quality capabilities without breaking budgets. With the Ilumina 502 Digital Production Press, small and medium sized printers can automate their workflows to produce quality short-run digital color jobs faster and with higher profits than ever before," says Robert Ross, CEO and founder of Xanté. "The Ilumina 502 keeps jobs in-house, which means more control, more money, and faster turnaround."
The Ilumina 502 Digital Production Press easily handles a wide range of paper weights, from text to ultra thick cover, 75 to 502 gsm, at an affordable price. Print shops can now make money producing short run four-color jobs faster than ever on a wide range of substrates that have been previously unavailable for digital printing. The Ilumina 502 Digital Production Press is capable of printing fiber-enhanced papers such as textured canvas, sleek metallic, cast coated, and magnetic stocks.
The Ilumina 502 Digital Production Press is Adobe PostScript driven and designed to be fast and ready for volume production. It can produce full color output at up to 36 ppm and monochrome output up to 40 ppm.
