C.J. Graphics is currently installing two fully loaded iGen 5 presses into its new Mississauga facility, which was scheduled to completed by this October. The presses, according to CEO Jay Mandarino, are slated to be operational by the end of the week. The company also acquired an Epic CTi-635 inline coating system, equipped with a C.P. Bourg BSFE-x sheet feeder, with installation scheduled to begin next week. This new Epic technology will allow for spot and overall Aqueous and UV coatings.

The Xerox iGen 5 digital presses hold a complete set of available features and options. “The new iGen 5 technology is a game changer, with revolutionary capabilities, including matte toner, extended gamut to achieve up to 93 percent of reproducible PMS colours – with orange, blue, green, white and clear dry ink – and 24-point thick stock kit,” said Mandarino, CEO and President of CJ Graphics Inc. “The iGen 5 is fast, and with the new features you are only limited by your imagination. We’re proud to be the first in the world to have the complete set of features to deliver more value to our clients.”

C.J. Graphics’ Xerox iGen 5 presses, as mentioned, include the fifth colour station with an abilty to swap in White Dry Ink for specialty effects. The flagship press platform for Xerox was introduced in mid-2015. It 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.

With purchase of the new building, renovations and new equipment, C.J. Group explained at the time of the announcement in early 2017, that it will be investing more than $25 million in its expansion. In addition to the new Xerox presses, Mandarino explained the company is adding full mailing services, a new sheetfed litho press, and a new large format press as it moves into the plant, in addition to expansion of its bindery and other divisions.
