Xerox to Showcase iGen 5 and Rialto 900
August 25, 2015 By PrintAction Staff
At Graph Expo 2015 in Chicago, Xerox plans to focus on three recently introduced technologies, including the new iGen 5 press platform, Rialto 900 inkjet system, and XMPie StoreFlow Cloud.
Introduced in July 2015, the iGen 5 press is Xerox’ next-generation platform of the iGen family with offerings at three print speeds: 90 pages per minute (ppm_, 120 ppm and 150 ppm. The press features an optional fifth colour unit to match a larger amount of Pantone colours or unknown spot colours. The current options of orange, green or blue supplement CMYK and can accurately hit distinctive brand colors without moving short runs to offset. While the iGen 5 150 Press and EFI Print Server were available in July, the iGen 5 120 Press, iGen 5 90 Press and FreeFlow Print Server will be available in September.
Introduced in February 2015, the full-colour Rialto 900 is designed for producing 1.5- to 5-million impressions per month. Xerox also states the Rialto 900 has the smallest footprint of any inkjet press on the market, measuring 11.9 x 5.1 feet (3.58 x 1.55 metres), including the press tower. Rialto 900 features what Xerox describes as an all-in-one design, meaning the front-end controller, paper roll and finishing components are housed within the machine. In addition to duplex printing, the company also explains Rialto has the smallest, narrow web on the market, measuring 9.84 inches (250 millimeters).
Launched in July 2015, XMPie StoreFlow Cloud is a subscription-based solution for creating Web-to-print portals. With little or no IT investment required, StoreFlow Cloud lowers the barriers to entry for practicing Web-to-print. StoreFlow Cloud offers a cost-effective way to create and manage e-commerce websites that enable visitors to upload their documents, or select a template from a catalog and personalize it, price the job, and submit it for processing and handling.
