Xerox Expands its High-Speed Black-and-White Lineup
Wednesday, April 01, 2009
Press release from the issuing companyPHILADELPHIA -- Xerox Corporation today announced a new black-and-white digital press that opens revenue opportunities in lucrative markets such as transactional/promotional materials and short-run book publishing.
Printing at 200 images per minute, the Xerox Nuvera 200 EA Perfecting Production System gives print providers a competitive advantage with productivity and image quality. It excels at producing high-volume applications that require precise fine-line detail, high image quality and sharp halftones such as technical manuals, bills/statements and books.
The Xerox Nuvera 200 EA system is built on the award-winning Xerox Nuvera 288 EA Perfecting Production System platform. At a resolution of 4800 x 600 dots per inch and 156 lines per inch, it uses Xerox's patented chemically-grown Emulsion Aggregation Toner, which provides a smooth matte finish that is comparable with the image quality of offset.
The SpencerLab Digital Color Laboratory compared the image quality of the Xerox Nuvera 288 EA system – which offers the same image quality as the Xerox Nuvera 200 EA system – with a competitive digital black-and-white system and a sheet-fed offset press.
"The overall print quality of the Xerox Nuvera system for target market applications surpassed its digital competitor and was fully competitive with offset quality, sometimes even exceeding it," said David Spencer, SpencerLab's president and CEO. "Our tests found the Xerox Nuvera system images had better depth, contrast and sharpness, with print quality closer to offset than that of the digital competitor."
The Xerox Nuvera 200 EA system runs two-sided prints twice as fast by leveraging the power of two print engines in tandem that are designed and managed as one system. A benefit of this design is "Pass through Programming" that keeps the system running even if one of the engines needs service, providing maximum productivity and uptime.
Xerox's Nuvera family of production systems, spanning from 100 to 288 images per minute, delivers high-quality prints and increases productivity. The Xerox Nuvera 200 EA system produces offset quality images and runs a wide range of media types. These systems are very modular and can be configured with a multitude of in-line feeding and finishing options including roll feeding and booklet making, perfect binding and coil binding.
Other key features include:
• a sheet enhancement module which assists in sheet flatness to improve stack quality and finishing performance;
• Xerox FreeFlow Print Server which enables variable data and high-resolution graphics at powerful processing speeds;
• Xerox FreeFlow Variable Information Suite which features security options that assist in printing applications such as ID badges, tickets and coupons.
Xerox is also introducing a new finisher to its in-line portfolio, the GBC eBinder 200. It takes printed pages from any Xerox Nuvera printer and stacks, registers, punches, and inserts a plastic comb to automatically bind at the rated speed of the print engine. The binder produces "lay flat" books that range in size from two to 100 sheets and offers an attractive alternative to traditional finishing options. The GBC eBinder 200 is immediately available in North America and worldwide later this year.
"In today's business environment, print professionals are looking for solutions including print engines and workflow that can make them more efficient and effective," said Jerry Murray, vice president, Product Marketing, Xerox Corporation. "The Xerox Nuvera 200 EA system's productivity, innovation, finishing and workflow options give print providers maximum results from their investment."
