UXBRIDGE – Xerox further enhanced its position in the CAD wide format market by launching the Xerox 7142 colour CAD printer. The Xerox 7142 is specifically designed for the CAD and GIS market where high speed and cost effective printing are of paramount importance.

Xerox understands that customers require output devices with flexibility in the engineering, architectural and construction sector, “This new addition to the wide format colour portfolio allows customers to explore further all the applications that CAD wide format printing can provide,” said Valentin Govaerts, Senior Vice President, Production and Graphic Arts Industry, Xerox Europe. “This is strong evidence of our continuing commitment to grow our wide format range in areas requested by our customers.”

The Xerox 7142 contains unique features required by the industry and gives the customer a new level of choice, with printing resolutions from 360 to 2880 DPI, and a maximum print speed of 40m2/hour.

The 7142 uses the latest ink jet printing head technology which allows control over each individual droplet size, giving finer lines and contours even at lower resolutions. The variable droplet technology allows low cost uncoated media to be used for check plots at lower resolutions and at higher resolutions with coated media produces high quality output for presentation and “artist impression” applications.

In addition the ink jet heads are permanent, so never need replacing, thus improving reliability and driving down running costs.
