Xerox’s lower cost systems make inkjet more accessible and open new business opportunities for print providers. Throughout HID, Xerox will showcase how its inkjet solutions enable customers to move into today’s biggest growth areas including catalogs, books, transactional and direct mail.
“The inkjet opportunity is no longer on the horizon – it’s here right now,” said Andrew Copley, president, Graphic Communications Solutions, Xerox.
UK-based print, mail and digital communications provider McLays bought the Brenva HD to expand their direct mail and transactional applications. In the first month of production, page volume increased 15%, hitting up to 150,000 pages per day on peak days.
“We produced more than 1.5 million pages in January with Brenva HD and are confident that we can double that figure in the coming months as the machine moves into 24-hour print production,” said Gary Wheeler, direct manufacturing manager, McLays.
Belgium-based print provider VPrint wanted to add more personalization and quality to its large-volume direct mail business without the cost of using specialty stock made for inkjet printing. The company has been testing the Trivor 2400 paired with High Fusion Ink.
“We wanted to print on standard offset coated stock, with offset quality and volume but with all the benefits of production inkjet,” said Thierry Ngoma, plant manager, VPrint. “So far High Fusion Ink and the Trivor 2400 are meeting our expectations – delivering brilliant color, high speed and the savings from using standard offset coated stocks without the need for any pre or post treatment.”
During HID, Xerox will showcase the Rialto 900 with two new inline finishing options: a dynamic perforator and second dual high capacity stacker. UK-based commercial printer Datagraphic has two Rialto 900 presses that produce minute-critical, data-driven transactional print for enterprises across the public and private sectors.
“We deliver daily communications, which often need to be printed and processed within hours and the Rialto 900 enables us to produce high-volume, same-day dispatches of business quality documents within a narrow timeframe,” said Robert Hoon, managing director, Datagraphic.
