Xante Corporation Introduces the Heavy Stock Enabled CL30
Press release from the issuing company
January 6, 2004 —Backed by two decades of experience in the design of laser printing, XANTE CORPORATION announced today a technological breakthrough unmatched in color laser printers under $10,000. The new Heavy Stock Enabled option for the XANTÉ CL30 allows users to image heavy stock up to 130 lb. cover/200 lb. index/16 pt. cover (330 gsm) at high speed.
Often, users force their ill-equipped laser or inkjet printers to print heavy stock, creating warped, poor quality prints and frequently jamming or damaging their machines in the process. Worse still, the word ‘heavy’ has been diluted by its frequent application to only marginally thick stock.
"The graphic publishing market has always had a need to print on heavier stock efficiently and economically, but the threshold for laser printers in this price range has lagged at 200 gsm," says XANTÉ CEO Robert Ross. "Heavy has been defined as 110 lb. index, or even 90 lb. index. Our engineers have been able to maintain print and color quality on truly heavy stock — up to 330 gsm."
The Heavy Stock Enabled CL30 offers brilliant color without fusing issues. And, the CL30 HSE’s straight paper path makes it possible to print flat, easily finished, high-quality business cards, postcards, direct mail pieces, brochures, and in-store signage — all on heavy stock at a low cost per page.
The Heavy Stock Enabled CL30 includes all of the CL30's award-winning specialized graphic features including 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, Adobe PostScript 3, print spooling, job storage capabilities, and automatic color recalibration.
