The Tecnau SheetFeeder BV roll feed system, which allows for up to 10 hours of non-stop cut sheet paper feeding to the Xerox Brenva HD Production Inkjet Press, is now available. Brenva is the first sheet-fed inkjet printer to offer a roll feed option.
Based upon the established Tecnau SheetFeeder family, the SheetFeeder BV sits next to the input side of the press and includes a quick-change unwinder and precision cutter. By feeding as many as 50,000 or more sheets from a single 127cm (50 inch) diameter roll, users print more in less time while lowering paper and labour costs.
SheetFeeder BV creates Brenva’s entire document size range up to a large 36.4cm (14.33 inch) x 52cm (20.5 inch) sheet for the press’s basis weight range of 60 to 220gsm, all while running at full press speed. Users may switch between 21.6cm (8.5 inch) x 28cm (11 inch) and 28cm (11 inch) x 43.1cm (17 inch) applications without changing rolls. Paper savings are especially significant on odd-sized sheets, lightweight and other non-standard papers. An optional running perforator offers additional savings.
‘At Xerox, we strive to make working with our products and services easier and more productive for our customers,’ said Steve Welkley, vice president, production inkjet sales, Xerox. ‘The Tecnau SheetFeeder BV roll feed system for our Brenva HD press allows our customers the flexibility to cut applications to their desired paper size within Brenva’s range without having to load and re-load various paper sizes. This solution ultimately increases throughout and lowers press downtime, operator labour and paper cost.’
