Xerox has introduced the Rialto 900™ Inkjet Press with first-of-its kind features that carve out a new space within the booming production colour inkjet segment.
Rialto 900™ is the world’s only fully-integrated roll-to-cut sheet, narrow web inkjet press and 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 (including the press tower), a cost-effective option for various production environments.
To help lower the entry point into production inkjet technology, the Rialto 900™ prints duplex jobs, one-up on the smallest, narrow web (250mm) on the market.
Paul Morgavi, chief operating officer, Inkjet Division, Xerox, and general manager Impika said, ‘We are creating a new, disruptive inkjet market segment with the Rialto 900 and there’s room for everyone. 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.
Additional features include:
• 1000 x 1000 dpi perceived resolution for high-quality output.
• Missing jet detection and duplex matching that are integrated and automated, saving time.
• Media flexibility with Xerox’s water-based pigment HD ink.
• Choice of a PDF or IPDS digital front end.
• Integrated cutter and stacker.
• Large, touch screen display for easy access to media selection, imposition, DFE status and job history.
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.
