Xerox today debuted its iGen 5 press platform, highlighting key features like a fifth-colour option, improved press uptime and multiple speed choices. The new platform includes the 150 press (150 ppm), iGen 5 120 press (120 ppm) and iGen 5 90 press (90 ppm). The company is also introducing a new scalable press architecture, which allows users to upgrade iGen 5 speeds.

The iGen 5 150 and EFI Print Server are available immediately worldwide, while the iGen 5 120, iGen 5 90 and FreeFlow Print Server will be available in September. Xerox released U.S. list prices for the machines, including the iGen 5 150 four-colour base configuration starting at $752,000 and the iGen 5 150 five-colour base configuration with a price of $849,000.

“We launched a digital colour revolution when we introduced the iGen platform in 2002,” said Andrew Copley, President, Global Graphic Communications Operations, Xerox Technology. “And we continue to anticipate change and respond with new ways to convert pages from offset. The iGen 5 is fully customizable to meet page volume, application type and colour needs – all while delivering market-leading press uptime.”
 
The iGen 5 platform provides 2,400 x 2,400-dpi imaging, as well as what the company labels as Object Oriented Halftoning, Xerox Confident Colour and Auto Density Control. For the optional fifth colour unit, providing a larger gamut of Pantone colours or unknown spot colours, orange, green or blue options supplement the standard CMYK model.
 
The iGen 5 line also offers gloss or matte dry ink options and a 26-inch sheet size option to enable applications like six-panel brochures, gatefold pamphlets, pocket folders and direct-mail campaigns.
