The world’s only fully-integrated roll-to-cut sheet, narrow web inkjet press is designed for print providers who produce 1.5 to 5 million impressions per month. It has the smallest footprint of any inkjet press on the market–3.58 x 1.55m (11.9 x 5.1 feet), including the press tower, and is a cost-effective option for various production environments.

The Xerox® Rialto™ 900 Inkjet Press design removes the primary barriers to entering the dynamic production inkjet market, cost and complexity, providing an exciting opportunity for business growth.

'We are creating a new, disruptive inkjet market segment with the Rialto 900 and there’s room for everyone,' said Paul Morgavi, chief operating officer, Inkjet Division, Xerox, and general manager, Impika. 'The Rialto 900 changes the playing field by merging the cut sheet, inkjet and offset worlds, an important convergence for providers looking for a competitive edge and for print’s long-term survival.'

The device offers the speed and image quality required to take on full-colour, personalised direct-mail, statements and book production. Its all-in-one design means the front-end controller, paper roll and finishing components are housed within the machine, a space saver and service convenience.

Automating and simplifying production is seamless with a range of workflow offerings, including XMPie® PersonalEffect® StoreFlow, Xerox FreeFlow® Core and VI Suite and solutions from GMC and Solimar, all driving the press at rated speed for maximum productivity.

The press provides a path to assist customers transitioning from: cut-sheet to continuous feed; and traditional to high-value applications.

The Rialto 900 is the first product jointly developed and launched by Xerox and Impika, accomplished within just two years of the acquisition. Additionally, Impika’s portfolio is now fully-integrated into Xerox’s production family and brand.


The Xerox Impika Evolution Inkjet Press, among the fastest inkjet printers at 254m (832 feet) per minute, has enhanced image quality capabilities with the VHQ (Very High Quality) mode and other improvements.

With VHQ, printers can increase the smoothness, detail and visual resolution of images on both offset and inkjet treated papers. Multi-size levels of ink are ejected from different nozzles onto the paper, maximising the control of ink drop placement at high speeds. Combined with a more robust profiling process, VHQ offers a competitive advantage and further extends the technology investment made by Evolution customers.

The Rialto 900 will be launched in Xerox MEA territories during the fourth quarter of 2015. For more information contact Bytes Document Solutions Marketing Department.
