“We believe the new capabilities with the Fiery DFE will be a significant asset to our customers, especially as it relates to optimizing our fifth station options,” said Ragni Mehta, VP and GM, Cut Sheet Business, Xerox.
The iGen 5 Press’ new White Dry Ink capability enables printing of content on colored media, with applications including folding cartons, point of purchase (POP) materials, greeting cards, direct mail postcards, business cards and more. For example, Fiery ImageViewer, part of the included Fiery Graphic Arts Package, Premium Edition, allows users to view the ink separation in the raster file to see exactly where white will print, preventing inadvertent errors and reducing waste, per EFI.
“The new Fiery DFE for the iGen 5 Press is based on the Fiery NX Premium hardware platform,” said John Henze, VP of marketing, EFI Fiery. “It features HyperRIP enhancements that allow shops to double their processing speed on more types of jobs. It also includes the new Fiery Command WorkStation® 6, the most popular production print job management interface in the industry, which is helping our customers increase their shop floor productivity.”
Per EFI, some of the new Fiery FS300 features include:
- Enhanced handling of spot colors, including the ability to overprint up to 127 spot colors per page. In addition, operators can easily prioritize spot color edits on a job basis to satisfy their customers’ specific color preferences;
- Fiery Color Profiler Suite 4.9, a G7 System Certified profiling and calibrating solution that makes it easy for operators at any skill level to calibrate a Fiery Driven Xerox iGen 5 press for G7 compliance;
- Object Inspector and Total Area Coverage, two Fiery ImageViewer enhancements that help operators identify imaging problems related to particular object types. This allows for diagnosis of color problems without going back to the source files, saving hours in turnaround time.
