New Xerox DocuColor 8080 Press Gives Printers a Competitive Edge

Friday, July 08, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Xerox Corporation's new DocuColor 8080 Digital Press handles jobs ranging from direct mail and calendars to booklets and collateral – opening up new ways for printers of all sizes and scope to increase business.  
Core to the DocuColor 8080 are three features that offer printers a competitive edge: productivity apps, low gloss dry ink and the Automated Color Quality Suite (ACQS) PDF file:  

  • Productivity apps simplify the most common print jobs with ready-to-use templates. Apps range from job ticketing and personalization to prepress operations, allowing printers to significantly increase the number of jobs completed daily. Each app comes with software from the FreeFlow Digital Workflow Collection and on-site support to help users reach maximum productivity fast.
  • Low gloss dry ink, ideal for various marketing applications, offers a smooth, matte-like finish that accents color images, including shadows and highlights.  The ink creates the look and feel of offset – highly sought after by marketers and graphic designers – with the speed and simplicity of digital technology.
  • Color accuracy is accomplished with the ACQS, a set of tools driven by an Inline Spectrophotometer, which reads color data inside the printer. ACQS automates color management tasks with minimal operator involvement – allowing for more high-value, profitable applications to move quickly through the shop.

"Our focus is to help customers produce more jobs, reduce costs and grow their business. The DocuColor 8080 was built with this in mind," said Eric  Armour, president, Graphic Communications Business Group, Xerox Corporation. "Technology like the DocuColor 8080 gives printers the power to expand capabilities, meet production demands, strengthen relationships with customers and capture more revenue."
Options customized for any print environment
Printing paper weights up to 300 gsm at 80 pages per minute, the DocuColor 8080 features three different print servers – users can select the one that best matches their production environment. The networked servers, offered by Xerox, EFI Fiery and CREO, allow operators to produce consistent color quality easily.   
Print providers can boost business by producing booklets, calendars, custom covers and flip presentations with various finishing options available from Xerox, GBC and Standard Horizon.
Customers who purchase the DocuColor 8080 have access to Xerox's Profit Accelerator Business Development Portfolio to help promote and expand their digital printing businesses.
Availability and pricing
The DocuColor 8080 Digital Press is available worldwide for immediate order taking, with installations starting in August. The U.S. list price is $260,000.
