Roll Systems Announces Docusheeter Dt-Lwp For Xerox Docutech Lightweight Paper Printer

Press release from the issuing company

Burlington, MA (May 19, 2003) -- Roll Systems announces availability for customer install of a new model of its DocuSheeter line of roll feed systems for cut sheet printers: the DocuSheeter DT-LWP (lightweight paper). The DocuSheeter DT-LWP allows the Xerox DocuTech LWP printer to use 50" diameter roll input, which significantly reduces paper cost and increases productivity. DocuSheeter DT-LWP feeds Xerox recommended lightweight paper stocks as light as 13 lb. bond and 35 lb. book to a DocuTech-LWP. Operationally stable in-line roll sheeting, with its reduced environmental sensitivity, provides important reliability benefits for lightweight paper applications. In addition, buying this paper in rolls allows the user to avoid the 30% or greater price premium associated with ream-wrapped lightweight sheets. The user also gains the benefits of reduced operator attention and increased printer productivity associated with running a roll of up to 87,500 sheets. DocuSheeter DT-LWP consists of Roll's quick-change unwinder, cutter, grain rotator and sheet transport, all adapted for this special application. In lightweight paper mode, the DocuSheeter DT-LWP feeds stocks used for many standard DocuTech applications in basis weights up to 20 lb. bond, as well as lightweight stocks. In standard paper mode, the DocuSheeter DT-LWP feeds the usual DocuTech basis weight range. Switching between modes is a simple operator procedure, taking less than two minutes. The Roll Systems DocuSheeter DT-LWP will be marketed and sold by Xerox in conjunction with orders for the DocuTech-LWP. "Xerox has chosen to re-sell Roll's DocuSheeter DT-LWP as a bundled component for DocuTech-Lightweight Paper printers, in recognition of the cost-savings and reliability benefits associated with roll feeding of lightweight paper," says Lou Karagianis, vice president and general manager of Xerox Special Information Systems. The DocuSheeter DT-LWP is available in North America and Europe through Xerox. Roll Systems is the world's largest manufacturer of automated paper handling, monitoring, converting, and finishing equipment for high speed electronic and digital printing. Its products are sold and serviced in over 50 countries.
