Zeroplus Printers celebrated purchasing the first Xerox Versant 2100 press in Gauteng at an event held at its Pretoria offices on 4 March.
Errol Van Der Merwe, Marketing and Life Coach Consultant, Zeroplus, said, ‘The Xerox Versant 2100 ensures we are at the forefront of the digital printing age. Purchasing the press was a very big step for us as it allows us to meet quick turnarounds, shorter runs and print-on-demand requirements. We have invested in leading-edge digital technology.’
Attendees were shown around the company’s extensive premises and were given tours of the printing and finishing departments. Barry Hasleham, digital print specialist at Bytes Document Solutions, demonstrated the high speed Versant 2100.
Former Springbok rugby player, Ashwin Willemse, served as guest speaker at the event. He challenged attendees to make a difference in the lives of others and encouraged them to follow their dreams.
The Versant 2100 features a Full Width Array inline sensor that automates critical setup tasks. It baselines the press with tone reproduction curve (TRC) calibration, conducts Density Uniformity adjustments and ensures correct image-to-media alignment, automatically adjusting registration, perpendicularity, skew and magnification. Full Width Array also automates colour calibration and profiling, the Versant 2100 automatically recovers from paper jams and features Production Accurate Registration (PAR) for consistent output from the first page of the print run to the last.
The flexibility which print businesses require today to deliver small, targeted runs is delivered through the ability of the Versant 2100 to handle a broad range of stock weights and types, while a choice of Fiery print servers equips integration with the most advanced industry workflow solutions.
Finishing options include high capacity stacking, hole punching and folding to square fold booklets and layflats. As for image quality, the machine introduces 1200 x 1200 RIP resolution outputs at 2400 x 2400 print resolution which together combine to produce superb Ultra HD Resolution, delivering exceptional fine details in graphic fills, sweeps, line art and text.
Key features of the Xerox Versant 2100 include:
• Output of up to 100 ppm and 5900 sheet capacity, ‘reload while run’.
• Support from 52-350 gsm, with auto-perfecting of all weights; all stocks up to 300 gsm handled at rated speed.
• Prints on linen, poly, vinyl and magnet stock.
