UXBRIDGE, U.K., April 3, 2013 – Technology that keeps print operations profitable is in high demand. Xerox is answering that call with the next generation of its award-winning iGen4® platform – the Xerox iGen4 Diamond Edition.
With the iGen4 Diamond Edition, job setup is easier and production times are faster, giving print solution providers a competitive edge when producing brochures, catalogues, magazines and direct mail pieces. The newest iGen4 also has precise, repeatable colour image quality so the first printed piece looks the same as the last one – a must when matching corporate colours and logos.
Many of the enhancements of the iGen4 Diamond Edition are time saving, automated features found on the Xerox iGen® 150 Press, including the 660mm (26") stacker and colour maintenance that takes the complexity and manual labour out of analysing colours.
All the enhancements of the iGen4 Diamond Edition will be available to current iGen4 customers, including:
- Automatic Image-to-Paper Setup – manual setups are replaced with a predictable, automated routine, eliminating time consuming paper registration adjustments.
- IntegratedPLUS Finishing Solution for Booklets – using JDF technology, booklet production is simplified with one touch job submission and prepress through automated finishing setup.
- Increased Efficiency – with either the EFI Fiery Controller or Xerox FreeFlow® Controller, the iGen4 Diamond Edition can handle various workflow solutions to increase production efficiency.
- Automated Colour Maintenance – replaces and eliminates manual steps by analysing colour and notifying the operator when the press is ready for production.
Print solution providers can also use Xerox’s ProfitAccelerator® Digital Business Resources, the largest collection of business development tools and services in the industry, to make the most of their technology investment.
Return on investment
According to SpencerLab Digital Color Laboratory, the iGen4 platform offers a good return on investment. In a study conducted by the firm, the Xerox iGen4 achieved the highest machine “Availability” of the evaluated commercial presses, outperforming the competition. Higher machine “Availability” means higher performance – more sellable print pieces in the hands of customers and greater income for the digital press owner.1
The iGen4 Diamond Edition will be available from May 1st.
