The Xerox® iGen™ 150 Press redefines an hour as one of your most effective tools for business growth, eliminating the trade-off between quality and profit that printers have had to make for years. The press brings together more easily attained and maintained image quality, more raw speed and more advanced automation so every hour becomes a tool for building a stronger business.

The press takes your business to unprecedented levels. Through a powerful mix of capabilities, iGen 150 is uniquely able to produce a wider range of jobs.

The press reduces your operational costs in a number of ways, allowing you to print customer-ready output more quickly than ever, with substantially less time, adjustment and waste. There’s only so much time, now more of it is profitable time.

The press is the culmination of over ten years of study, innovation and collaboration with Xeroxs customers. Virtually every aspect has been examined to enhance quality, increase productivity and eliminate costs so that you can quickly grow your business into something larger, nimbler and more capable in a challenging marketplace.

With iGen™ 150, customers can be confident coming to your business again and again. It’s easier than ever with the automated Colour Maintenance Tool—in conjunction with the Inline Spectrophotometer—that takes the manual intervention out of the calibration process and delivers outstanding colour the first time. This automated process analyses a mix of target colors and it notifies the operator the press is ready for production—eliminating unnecessary maintenance procedures and increasing uptime. And the Auto Density Control System works in tandem, detecting and correcting streaks before they occur. You get consistent quality on every image, every day.

iGen 150 image quality approaches that of offset and meets your customers’ expectations for quality from the first print, delivering on the promise of true graphic communications quality and performance.

The press uses a new 2400 x 2400 imaging system with Vertical Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology to deliver more information per square inch. That means improved detail, tighter, more uniform rosettes and better sharpness. Together with other advancements, the image quality of iGen 150 means more happy customers and more business growth.

Xerox® Matte Dry Ink has been developed to take advantage of the growing opportunity for digital print with an appearance almost identical to offset. The combination of Matte Dry Ink and the imaging system design makes the iGen 150 Press a perfect complement to your existing offset business. You can produce new applications that integrate seamlessly into your existing offset workflow.

A 25% raw speed increase to iGen’s proven productivity allows you to produce more work faster. The printer reaches speeds of up to 137 22cm x 28cm (8.5 x 11)/A4 pages per minute. Xeroxs 660mm (26) sheet runs at a rated speed of 3000 4/0 sheets per hour to yield an effective 22cm x 28cm (8.5 x 11)/A4 rate of 150 pages
per minute.

In conjunction with the processing power of a choice of print servers, a streamlined workflow, great first-print-out colour and the efficiency of a range of inline finishing options, iGen 150 produces more jobs that help you maximise your investment and grow your business faster than ever.
