Xerox has announced a raft of new products including two new production printers – the C60 and C70. These run at up to 60 and 70ppm respectively, and up to 75ppm in monochrome. They offer 2400 x 2400 dpi resolution with enhanced front-to-back registration accuracy. They can print on linen for unique applications like event planning, appliques and luxurious embellishments. Cost is likely to be around £22,000.
There’s a choice of four print servers/controllers from Xerox and EFI. There are a number of inline finishing options, such as stapling, hole-punching, folding and face trimming. They are aimed at quick print shops, in-plant operations, agencies and small businesses
There are also four new multifunction printers that use Xerox’s ConnectKey 1.5 software and technology for connecting to the cloud. These include: the WorkCentre 6655, a colour A4 MFP that can produce up to 36ppm; the WorkCentre 3655, a monochrome A4 printer capable of 47ppm; the WorkCentre 7970, a colour A3 MFP, capable of C-folding and Z-folding that can produce up to 70ppm; and the WorkCentre 5945/5955, monochrome A3 MFPs that can print 45ppm and 55ppm.
There are also ConnectKey apps that can connect to hosted cloud solutions such as Microsoft Office 365 and Dropbox by scanning to, or printing from these repositories.
Xerox has also launched new managed print services for its channel partners including PageConnect, which offers remote management of MFPs to control costs. An online QuickQuote tool calculates current print costs and can help forecast future spend while the Xerox Business Intelligence Portal provides performance and service metrics, allowing service providers to recommend cost-saving adjustments. There’s also the Xerox Small Office Savings Plan, which allows partners to offer their customers a free Xerox color printer; and in turn, customers agree to pay a predictable monthly amount used exclusively for supplies.
