Xerox India announces the launch ofthe new Xerox Versant 180, Versant 180 Performance Package and Versant 3100 Presses at the Print Miracle 2017 from April 7 to 9, 2017. The newly-launched mid production color presses consist of a unique combination of higher image quality, greater media latitude and higher duty cycles for more productivity and performances. The launch is in continuation to the tremendous success of Versant 80/Versant 2100 owing to its path breaking media flexibility and 10-bit image quality.
Commenting at the launch, Executive Director, Technology, Channels & International Distributor Operations, Xerox India said, “We are excited to launch these new digital presses at the Print Miracle Expo 2017. The Xerox Versant family has already established a merit in productivity, automation and media flexibility. It has seen a great response in the market and we are looking forward to sustaining the momentum for this year as well. The newly-launched presses with enhanced automation features will achieve a new standard of image quality by delivering four times more pixels than other presses while still printing at blazing fast speeds, thereby fuelling new levels of business growth for our customers.”
The Versant line gives printers greater capacity, output and inline automation tools such as a spectrophotometer, full-bleed booklet maker, punch, square fold trimmer and other advanced finishing tools for just about any application needed. The presses handle everything from trimmed and finished marketing collaterals, direct mail, signage, reports or full-bleed magazines on a range of media types and sizes from envelopes to 26-inch/660mm banner prints.
The new Versant family of presses offer:
• More performance – With increased duty cycles and the ability to print from 80 to 100 pages per minute, the presses can print on stocks up to 350 gsm. Integrated technology such as Registration Alignment and Production Accurate Registration ensure image-to-media alignment and density uniformity.
• More feeding and finishing options – Advanced feeding capabilities allow for longer, uninterrupted print runs with inline finishing options including the Xerox Inserter, Xerox Basic Punch, the Xerox SquareFold Trimmer and the Xerox Two-Sided Trimmer.
• High image quality – Ultra HD Resolution and 10-bit technology provides four times more pixels on a page than other presses. Built-in Xerox Confident Color technology utilizing a full width array combines to deliver optimum image quality. The Versant 180 Performance Package offers Xerox’s Automated Color Quality Suite with an inline spectrophotometer to provide fully automated color management.
Automation and productivity features in-plant shops need
According to InfoTrends, reducing production costs and improving efficiency are top priorities for 84% of in-plant facilities. Expanding into new print services and focusing on growing existing offerings follow close behind.
“In-plant printers need speed with robust duty cycles and technology to manage alignment and calibration. The new Xerox Versant presses provide the benefits of advanced automation and productivity to meet those needs,” said Pat McGrew, Director, Keypoint Intelligence. “The presses’ Simple Image Quality Adjustment feature requires an internal target to be printed and scanned back, ensuring that adjustments are fast and straightforward, which embodies the best practice we recommend. This process provides an extremely accurate registration that printers will appreciate.”
