The Ilumina is designed for short-run “on-demand” color printing on heavy papers up to 427 g/m2 (24 point cover).

The Ilumina Digital Color Press handles a wide range of paper weights from 64 g/m2 to 427 g/m2 (17 lb bond to 24 point cover). The straight paper path ensures all the heavy sheets are flat and easily finished. The Ilumina Digital Color Press is a true "on-demand" color printing solution. The first sheet off the Ilumina is sellable with zero make-ready. Print out only the amount needed and control your job costs. The setup and production time for a 4-color short run job is unbeatable.
The Ilumina Digital Color Press comes standard with color management controls. The print driver provides an easy path to control color through ink simulations, color matching modes, and color profiles. Also included is ColourMatch 2 software which offers more in-depth control over monitor, scanner, source and destination color profiles.
“The Ilumina Digital Color Press is our fifth color product we’ve released since first entering the color print market in May of 2000 at Drupa,” said Robert C. Ross, Jr., XANTÉ’s founder and CEO. “With the Ilumina we’ve taken on-demand color printing on regular and heavy paper to the next level. This digital color press is designed for the consumer who runs jobs on a daily basis and expects quality graphic output. The Ilumina offers flexibility and control, a more productive workflow, and a comprehensive solution in their budget. We’re raising the bar for the 4-color press at a reasonable price.” said Ross.
