Standard Finishing Systems and Xerox Corporation have announced general availability of the Standard Horizon ColorWorks Pro Plus, the all-in-one next-generation document finisher designed for operation in-line to Xerox Color 800/1000 Digital Presses. The compact multi-functional ColorWorks performs bookletmaking, creasing, bleed trimming, folding, stitching, and stacking, making it a nearly full-service “bindery in a box.”
The Pro Plus is based on the market-proven ColorWorks technology platform. Xerox has already installed hundreds of ColorWorks units with the popular DocuColor digital press series, earning Standard successive “Finishing Partner of the Year” awards for outstanding sales success. New ColorWorks Pro Plus features include a faster production rate of up to 100 pages per minute, plus engineering and software enhancements that improve operator friendliness and serviceability.
The ColorWorks Pro Plus is the product of a close engineering alliance between Horizon International and Xerox Corporation. As a platinum partner in the Xerox Business Innovation Partner program, Horizon and Xerox engineering teams worked closely to produce the ColorWorks Pro Plus. Professional-quality document production is managed through an icon-based color touchscreen for quick, easy and accurate set-ups. Edge-to-edge full color bleeds are made possible with rotary head and foot trimming of posters, brochures, or booklets. And in-line creasing helps improve fold quality and avoid image-cracking induced by cross-grain stock.
The compact ColorWorks system performs corner, side and center-stapling functions, with booklet folding and face trimming. Finished booklets are delivered to an integrated motorized vertical stacker for convenience and space efficiency.
“The exciting features of the new ColorWorks Pro Plus provide even higher levels of document quality, ease of use, and finishing flexibility for Xerox production digital color customers,” said David Reny, executive vice president, Standard Finishing Systems. “Horizon engineering, Xerox color printing technology, and Standard’s comprehensive sales and service support continue to be a winning combination for customers.”
The Horizon ColorWorks Pro Plus brings professional in-line finishing functionality to the Xerox Color 800/1000 Digital Presses and opens up a wide range of applications for new and existing customers. Xerox DocuColor customers who already own a ColorWorks 8000 or Pro finisher can also participate in an upgrade program to protect their investment.
