What an exciting day for Xerox Corporation! After much anticipation, we are thrilled to announce new additions into our production portfolio, with today’s launch of the Xerox Color J75 and Xerox Color C75 Presses. Both the J75 and C75 are available immediately in North America, with worldwide availability beginning March 1, 2013.
The Xerox Color J75 and C75 Presses were designed with many production environments in mind, including in-plant operations, quick printers, commercial printers, creative agencies, photo specialty retailers and departmental environments.
Both press’ tout impressive features, including the new Simple Image Quality Adjustment (SIQA) toolset, which empowers the user with alignment and registration accuracy by automating registration control and density uniformity, eliminating the need to involve a technician. Also new to the J75 and C75 Presses is Intelligent Fuser Tracking technology, allowing users to designate commonly used paper sizes to specific fuser rolls, and alerting them if there is a mismatch between the job being printed and the fuser setting. This helps to minimize wear and extend the life of the fuser.
For commercial print shops producing high-volume, high-value applications, the Xerox Color J75 Press offers enhanced productivity by running all paper stocks, including heavyweight up to 300 gsm, at full rated speed of 75 pages per minute (ppm).
It can easily match corporate and industry colors through its embedded Xerox’s Automated Color Quality Suite (ACQS). With ACQS’ inline spectrophotometer and color management tools; accurate, reliable color can be achieved through automated calibration and profiling, all while limiting operator involvement.
Adding to the press’ productivity are Xerox FreeFlow solutions, including templates and automated workflows that simplify job prep and production of applications ranging from postcards to booklets. To help printers create high-value applications, Xerox’s Variable Information Suite and XMPie make it simple to add personalization, whether one name or a robust cross-media campaign.
The Xerox Color C75 Press makes it easy to start, or expand, a digital printing business. With the ability to run up to 75 ppm on uncoated stocks and up to 51 ppm on coated – the Xerox Color C75 can help open new opportunities to produce more profitable jobs.
In addition, the press features advanced scanning and copying capabilities, allowing auto-duplex scanning up to 200 images per minute (ipm). These workflow efficiencies are huge for businesses entering the digital marketplace. This versatile press even offers optional mobile and cloud solutions, providing printers with new ways to do business as jobs can be submitted and printed securely from smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktops.
We gave a sneak-peak of the Xerox Color J75 Press to attendees visiting the EFI Connect Users’ Conference on January 15. In attendance was Jyske Bank, the 3rd largest bank in Denmark, a company whose built a solid reputation by delivering excellence in quality, service, security, and privacy…extending all the way to their in-house print operations.
Impressed with the Xerox Color J75 at first sight, Jyske Bank purchased two presses. Jyske’s Print Shop Manager, Carsten Gaarde, stated:
“Print is one of the ways we build and maintain our customer relationships. The J75 offers many high-end press features in a smaller footprint with very impressive print quality.”
