Xerox Claims Largest in Class with iGen4 EXP
Xerox has introduced an update to its iGen4 platform, a new model called the iGen4 EXP. The machine boasts what the company claims to be 50 percent more image area than competitive devices.
“The high-end capabilities of the iGen4 press have allowed print service providers to push the boundaries of digital print and spur growth in areas such as direct mail, sales collateral and photo publishing,” said Eric Armour, president, Graphic Communications Business Group, Xerox Corporation. “iGen4 EXP puts even more power in the users’ hands – set-up time is reduced, productivity is increased and new high-value applications can be created with 24/7 production.”
With a maximum sheet size of 14.33 x 26-inches, the EXP can produce multi-up jobs such as full-size tri-fold brochures, postcards, greeting cards, or extra large book covers and jackets. The machine prints at 40 sheets a minute at that sheet size, effectively creating 120 letter-sized pages a minute. Stock can be fed through a modified paper tray or roll system.
Xerox is currently taking orders for the EXP and will begin to ship the machine in the forth quarter of this year. In 2011, current iGen4 owners will be given an opportunity to convert their machines to the EXP model.
