New DocuTech & DocuPrint Products Provide Higher Speed for Smaller Print Shops
Press release from the issuing company
ROCHESTER, N.Y.--July 30, 2001--Building on its leadership in the monochrome production printing market, Xerox Corporation today announced two new cut-sheet printers that will make it easier for smaller-sized print operations to create both on-demand and personalized documents for their clients.
According to market-research firm CAP Ventures, the retail value of digitally printed documents was $21.4 billion last year and is projected to more than double to $52.5 billion by 2005. CAP Ventures estimates that 82 percent of the black-and-white pages printed on high-speed print on demand systems are already produced on Xerox equipment.
The DocuTech 2000 Series 75 and DocuPrint 75 offers print shops a way to capture additional pages with its compact footprint, high-quality 600 dots-per-inch (dpi) output and print speeds of 75 pages per minute. The DocuTech 75, specifically engineered for on-demand printing, also is designed with customer replaceable units (such as fuser and toner cartridges), helping operators maintain the product, while maximizing print production through increased uptime. It is also compatible with all of the major network and mainframe printing environments.
The Xerox DocuPrint 75, built on the same 75-ppm print engine is optimized for printing transaction applications requiring merging of variable data; for mission critical documents such as bills and invoices. "Building on the success of the DocuTech and DocuPrint 65 products, these new systems provide print shops and data centers with an entry-level option that includes many features of a larger DocuTech and DocuPrint product and is easy to install.'' said Tom Wetjen, vice president and general manger, Xerox Production Systems Group.
The products expand what is already the industry's broadest line of black-and-white production printers - ranging from 65 pages to 500 images per minute - designed to address the needs of the fast-growing digital printing market.
Both the DocuTech 75 and DocuPrint 75 also support more production printing applications through such capabilities as printing on tab stock and tight front-to-back registration for demanding forms and book publishing environments.
The DocuTech 75 and DocuPrint 75 are available immediately in North America and will be available in Europe later this year. The base DocuPrint 75 has a list price of $51,700 in the United States. List prices for the DocuTech 75, which includes a scanner and DigiPath software, begin at $69,700.
