Xerox’s New iGen4 Delivers More Automation, Production Efficiencies; Printers Gain Competitive Edge

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Technology that keeps print operations profitable is in high demand. Xerox is answering that call with the next generation of its award-winning iGen4® platform – the Xerox iGen4 Diamond Edition.  

With the iGen4 Diamond Edition, job setup is easier and production times are faster, giving print solution providers a competitive edge when producing brochures, catalogs, magazines and direct mail pieces. The newest iGen4 also has precise, repeatable color image quality so the first printed piece looks the same as the last one – a must when matching corporate colors and logos. 

Many of the enhancements of the iGen4 Diamond Edition are time saving, automated features found on the Xerox iGen® 150 Press, including the 26" stacker and color maintenance that takes the complexity and manual labor out of analyzing colors. 

All the enhancements of the iGen4 Diamond Edition will be available to current iGen4 customers, including:

  • Automatic Image-to-Paper Setup – manual setups are replaced with a predictable, automated routine, eliminating time consuming paper registration adjustments.
  • IntegratedPLUS Finishing Solution for Booklets – using JDF technology, booklet production is simplified with one touch job submission and prepress through automated finishing setup.
  • Automate Order Acquisition – with StoreFlow, web-to-print software from XMPie®, A Xerox Company, users can create profitable B2C storefronts and B2B portals for ordering static, customized and personalized print pieces. StoreFlow can be integrated with FreeFlow® Process Manager to automate prepress file preparation.
  • Increased Efficiency – with either the EFI Fiery Controller or Xerox FreeFlow Controller, the iGen4 Diamond Edition can handle various workflow solutions to increase production efficiency. 

Print solution providers can also use Xerox’s ProfitAccelerator® Digital Business Resources, the largest collection of business development tools and services in the industry, to make the most of their technology investment.

Return on investment

According to SpencerLab Digital Color Laboratory, the iGen4 platform offers a good return on investment. In a study conducted by the firm, the Xerox iGen4 achieved the highest machine “Availability” of the evaluated commercial presses, outperforming the competition. Higher machine “Availability” means higher performance – more sellable print pieces in the hands of customers and greater income for the digital press owner.1

Availability and pricing 

The iGen4 Diamond Edition is available immediately worldwide; the U.S. list price is $662,000.
