East Van Graphics of Vancouver, British Columbia, has installed a new Xerox iGen 5 press into its digital and offset printing facility. The company’s new Xerox press includes an expanded format (14 x 26 inches), matte finish capabilities and features the first heavyweight capacity (24 pt) for an iGen 5 press in British Columbia.
Released into the market in mid-2015, the iGen 5 is rated for up to 3,750,000 pages per month. The 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.
The iGen5 is based on a new scalable press architecture, which allows users to upgrade iGen 5 speeds within the 150 version (150 ppm), 120 version and 90 version press. The press also introduced an 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.
