Xerox will launch two more inkjet presses at the drupa show this summer, both aimed at different market sectors.
The Brenva HD Production Inkjet Press is a cut-sheet device that’s aimed at the gap between high-end toner and low-end inkjet presses. Xerox says that it will be suitable for light direct mail, transactional and book printing. It makes use of many of the paper-path components developed for the iGen and also includes an inline spectrophotometer. This will be complemented by object-oriented colour management to distinguish text, graphics and images, optimising each accordingly. It can also be run in a monochrome K mode.
This press should be available in Europe in May 2016 and in North America in September 2016. Shipments will begin in June 2016. The list price starts at $649,000, roughly £465,000.
The second press, the Trivo 2400, is a continuous feed printer. It can produce 168 metres per minute in colour or 200 metres per minute in monochrome. It’s said to be suitable for catalogs, magazines and colour books. It will have inline density optimization as well as the ability to automatically detect and correct missing nozzles.
It comes supplied with a Xerox IJ Print Server, based on a EFI Fiery server. This can handle multiple data streams for various application types, as well as colour management and integration with other workflows.
Price and availability will be announced at Drupa.
