Africa Print platinum sponsor, Xerox, will showcase the new D125 CP PRO mono printer/copier, X770 and X1000, as well as a range of software solutions at the Africa Print Durban Regional Expo, taking place from 6-7 March at the ICC Durban.

The Xerox 770 Digital Colour Press can help print providers increase monthly print volume by expanding into applications such as photo books, direct-mail pieces, marketing materials and calendars.

A key feature of the press is the Automated Colour Quality Suite, a set of tools that handle colour management tasks with minimal operator involvement, allowing for more high-value, profitable applications to move quickly through the shop. The press also prints on a range of stocks, including heavyweight, at the rated speed of 70 pages per minute, a significant competitive advantage.

The new press updates the software and capabilities of the Xerox 700 Digital Colour Press, which has generated print volume and revenue growth for thousands of global print providers.

Additional features of the Xerox 770 digital colour presses include:

  • Inline finishing – easily creates high-value applications inline including face-trimmed saddle-stitched booklets, catalogues, punched documents, tri-fold brochures and photo specialty products.
  • Heavyweight stock capabilities – increases productivity and application flexibility for stocks up to 300 gsm.
  • Industry colour standards – allows the presses to accurately match the designer’s intent with optimal quality by achieving Fogra VPS certification. The presses also use the Adobe® PDF Print Engine 2 and are licensed for Pantone® Plus.
  • Server options – meets the needs of specific print operations. Options for the Xerox 770 Digital Colour Press include Xerox FreeFlow® Print Server and EX Print Server powered by EFI Fiery. 
  • Scanning and copying – increases flexibility with an automatic duplex copying and scanning of 600 x 600 dpi and offers a variety of scanning options such as scan-to-file PDF and paper handling up to 28cm x 44cm (11” x 17”).

The company’s newest series of light production devices, the Xerox D95/D110/D125 Copier/Printer and D110/D125 Printer, delivers sharp black-and-white image quality with speed and efficiency.

Built to handle the demands of print-intensive environments, the devices make it easy for educators to create curriculum materials, student directories, course packs and bound materials. Productivity can be increased with archiving and stamping software allowing legal, insurance and healthcare users to store documents electronically and guarantee their authenticity with numerical markings. In the print-for-pay market, commercial, quick and franchise, printers can meet tight turnaround times and offer more applications and services, like newsletters, on-demand book publishing and customised catalogues.

The copier/printer models are available in speeds of 95, 110 and 125 pages per minute (ppm), while the D110/D125 Printers are available in speeds of 110 and 125 ppm, which is suitable for the transactional print environment.

Key customer benefits are: 

  • Fast and easy.
  • The Xerox copier/printer has a standard single-pass colour scanner.
  • 2400 x 2400 dpi print resolution and prints from and saves to a USB drive.
  • A built-in scanner scans up to 200 images per minute and manages high-volume, complex jobs with a 250-page automatic document feeder.

Advanced workflow tools

An integrated controller comes standard with the copier/printer models, allowing powerful workflow with an easy-to-use touch screen. Two optional servers – the Xerox FreeFlow® Print Server or the Xerox EX Print Server powered by Fiery® – deliver additional flexibility.

Xerox’s Extensible Interface Platform allows users to simplify work processes right from the copier/printer’s touch screen interface.

Xerox 1000

With flexible workflow, feeding and finishing and a clear toner station that enables flood or spot coating on the fly, the press easily meets the stringent demands of the professional commercial printer.

The press features an even wider colour gamut that can produce vibrant images with smooth sweeps that command – and hold – attention. Running all substrate weights at rated speeds of 100 ppm, the press delivers one of the widest ranges of media handling, from a light weight 55 gsm to a hefty 350 gsm.
