To help print providers capitalise on inkjet’s growing momentum, Xerox announced it will launch two new inkjet presses, the Xerox Brenva HD Production Inkjet Press and the Xerox Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press, at drupa 2016 on 31 May – 10 June in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The presses are the first in an innovative new series of inkjet offerings to come from Xerox; Brenva HD to the cut-sheet inkjet market and Trivor 2400 with the Xerox IJ Print Server powered by Fiery to the continuous feed inkjet market.
“The press will allow print providers to move into catalogues, magazines and colour books, giving customers more flexibility,” says Jenny Attewell, printing systems and wide format product manager at Bytes Document Solutions, “Each will enable print providers to accelerate growth and drive the production of more high-value applications such as transactional, book publishing and direct mail.”“We are focused on expanding our inkjet portfolio with more choices and greater capabilities for print providers to grow their businesses,” says Robert Stabler, senior vice president and general manager, Global Graphic Communications Business Group, Xerox. “With the addition of Brenva HD and Trivor 2400, we’re making inkjet more accessible and affordable to a larger number of print providers.”Xerox is targeting the space – dubbed by InfoTrends as the Zone of Disruption – that sits in the gap between high-end toner and low-end inkjet presses with Brenva HD. This new press combines the cost effectiveness of inkjet with the flexibilities of cut-sheet to address the needs of print providers in the light direct mail, transactional and book publishing markets. Incorporating many of the reliable paper-path components of the award-winning Xerox iGen, Brenva HD offers best-in-class automation and reliability features to maximise press productivity including:• An inline spectrophotometer to assist with calibration and profiling• Object-oriented colour management to distinguish text, graphics and images and automatically optimises the image quality of each accordingly• Black ink only mode so it will run as a cost effective monochrome press
The Xerox Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press provides printers with a platform built to grow as business demands increase with the same machine scaling up for more speed, volume and solutions. The Trivor 2400 press combines high performance and increased speed (551 feet/168 meters per minute in colour; 656 feet/200 meters per minute in monochrome) in a small footprint in print engine. Engineered-in automation ensures superb, reliable image quality including inline density optimisation, clear pixel technology, and missing jet detection and correction. The Trivor 2400 inkjet press is a single engine capable of printing in duplex.
A new print server developed in partnership with EFI, the Xerox IJ Print Server powered by Fiery, will handle multiple data streams for various application types, from publishing to transactional to direct mail. The IJ Print Server will simplify integration, provide comprehensive colour management and integrate seamlessly with customers’ existing workflows.
