Xerox Carbonless Paper and iGen3 Digital Press Speeds Up Production of Colorful Multi-Part Forms
Press release from the issuing company
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 01, 2006 -- Xerox Corporation has extended its carbonless paper family of products to include a new paper that works with its flagship Xerox iGen3 Digital Production Press.
The specially treated paper enables in-plant printing operations and commercial and quick printers to use Xerox iGen3 digital presses to produce colorful, multi-part bank statements, invoices and claim forms at 90- and 110-pages-per-minute - faster than has been possible with any other digital color system in the industry.
Pairing Xerox Premium Digital Carbonless paper with the Xerox iGen3 press makes it possible to economically and efficiently add colorful logos and highlighted content to each sheet of a contract or receipt. Research shows that giving documents a colorful makeover can make it easier for people to complete forms faster and more accurately.
In addition, companies can save time and money by printing their forms on-demand on digital printers, rather than using large inventories of offset pre-printed forms that could become outdated.
Xerox developed the industry's first carbonless paper for digital black-and-white printing in the late 1980s and has led the market since. Last year Xerox introduced the industry's first carbonless paper designed for digital color and black-and-white printing in both the office and production environments.
"Our customers have had great success printing multi-part forms on-demand using Xerox's carbonless paper," said Steve Simpson, vice president, Xerox Supplies Business Group. "Customers have reported saving up to 40 percent in cost and up to 50 percent in time using carbonless paper instead of manually collating sets of documents."
Since the Xerox iGen3 digital printing family was launched in 2002, print providers have produced more than 3 billion pages worldwide - including jobs like full-color personalized marketing materials, direct-mail pieces, forms, brochures, posters, and short-run books.
Xerox Premium Digital Carbonless paper is available in a range of sizes and can be customized for special applications. In addition to the iGen3 press, the paper works with Xerox office products, such as the Phaser 8400 network printer and the DocuColor 12 multifunction system, and with high-volume production DocuColor digital presses. It also is designed to work with an array of black-and-white systems, including the Xerox Nuvera and DocuTech production families and the Xerox 4590/4110 Enterprise Printing Systems.
Xerox Premium Digital Carbonless paper is available in the United States from Xerox's direct sales force, authorized resellers and at www.xerox.com/supplies. The product will be available in Canada on Sept. 15 and later this fall in Europe.
