Xante has introduced the new En/Press as its next-generation digital envelope press. En/Press is a four-color process press built around an Adobe PostScript controller that delivers full-colour output at up to 60 letter-size pages per minute or 4,000 #10 envelopes per hour with variable data. Powered by Xante’s iQueue workflow software, En/Press produces print quality of up to 4,800 dpi.

The En/Press includes PlateMaker 8 computer-to-plate technology, meaning the same press that produces envelopes, NCR forms, and stationery, can also produce polyester plates. PlateMaker 8 takes advantage of the En/Press technology to produce Myriad2 plates on a variety of sizes up to 13 x 19.38 inches that are suited for one- or two-colour jobs.

At 13-inches wide, the En/Press media input handles a range of popular envelope and sheet sizes. Its patented Enterprise feed system delivers envelopes up to 13 x 10 inches and sheets up to 13 x 49.6 inches. The Enterprise Feed System has been redesigned with a slimmer profile. While handling the same 1,000 envelope capacity, Enterprise now accepts media as small as 3.5 x 3.5 inches to expand its envelope printing capability.

“En/Press raises the bar for digital press technology,” said Robert Ross, President and CEO of Xante. “It’s truly a unique solution with its incredible print quality, dead-on spot colour matching, simple ease of use, durability, low cost, and CTP polyester plate printing that Xante customers have come to expect.”
