Xerox to bring 800/1000 machine to Europe at Ipex
Tuesday, 20 April 2010 00:00

Xerox will give a European launch to the 800/1000 - a high-end sheetfed colour press that sits between the 8002 and the iGen, at Ipex next month.

"We're closing the gap be­­tween the 8002 and the iGen significantly with the new machine," said Xerox Europe production colour business manager Alan Clarke.

Monthly volumes for the 800/1000 are 150,000-300,000 A4 pages compared to the 8002's 100,000-200,000 A4 pages and the iGen's 300,000+ A4 pages.

Developed by Fuji Xerox, the new machine is available in 80 and 100 A4ppm configurations and includes an optional fifth imaging station with clear toner for adding flood and spot varnish.

In a departure from existing Xerox presses, the paper trays are underneath the imaging unit, increasing the height, but reducing the length of the machine.

The firm said this would enable it to fit into a smaller space than rival machines. However, additional trays will extend the length of the machine.

The 800/1000 handles larger and heavier weight stocks than the 8002 - up to 350gsm - which Xerox said made it suitable for packaging applications.

The Xerox Colour 1000 Press has more than 40 components that a trained operator can replace. The company said that this reduced the total cost of ownership and gives customers more control over image quality.

"Production customers told us that they want more control of their uptime," said Clarke.
The new machine also uses Xerox's EA toner, which eliminates fuser oil and is said to provide a significant improvement in image quality over the 8002.

Underscoring the image quality of the machine, Clarke said that he expected it to have Fogra certification with at least one digital front end (DFE) by Ipex.

"Print buyers are increasingly asking for evidence that the machinery is capable of consistent colour quality," he said.

As with other colour machines it will have the option of Creo, EFI Fiery and Xerox Freeflow DFEs.
