Xerox Announces Enhancements to iGen 5
Xerox today announced two new optional capabilities for its iGen 5 digital color production, cut-sheet press: the extra-long sheet (XLS) and Fluorescent Yellow Dry Ink.
The iGen 5 XLS enables up to a 35-inch sheet size, prints at rated speed and has production feeding and stacking. With extra-long capabilities, printers can deliver more pieces per sheet, increasing application productivity of the iGen 5 by up to 25 percent. Print providers can increase the versatility of the iGen 5 by targeting additional applications such as four-panel brochures, book covers, banners, large-format clings, panoramic artwork and multi-up printing.
Printers also now have the option to utilize the iGen 5’s fifth print station to run Fluorescent Yellow Dry Ink in addition to orange, green and blue gamut extension colors as well as white and clear.
Xerox says that expanding the press’ color capabilities enables print providers to offer a distinct selection of spot and flood effects, photo and color enhancements and watermarks. Specially formulated to glow under UV light, this ink also provides options for high-value jobs such as Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) caution and safety signage, book covers, dust jackets, folding cartons, direct mailers and collaterals. When running specialty effects, Xerox FreeFlow Core batches jobs by Specialty Dry Ink, ensuring the flow of work is seamless.
The iGen 5 XLS and Fluorescent Yellow Dry Ink will be available for order taking starting on October 3rd in the Americas and in the fourth-quarter of 2019 for the other regions served by Xerox.
