Fuji Xerox Australia has announced the Nuvera 288 Digital Perfecting System, a dual-print engine design which, says the company, sets an unprecedented new speed record for duplex monochrome cut-sheet printing systems.
At 288 impressions (or 144 two-sided pages) per minute, Fuji Xerox says its new twin-engine technology makes the Xerox Nuvera 288 Digital Perfecting System run at least 15 per cent faster than any other systems on the market.
With enhanced image quality comparable to offset printing standards and unsurpassed application flexibility, Fuji Xerox lays claim to being at the leading edge of technology development.
The digital duplex production system can produce books and brochures at a resolution of 4800 x 600 dots per inch, the highest of any monochrome digital production system on the market.
"We are dedicating resources to the development of new technologies and to enhancing our existing products to deliver even greater advantages to Fuji Xerox customers," says Chris Aked, marketing manager of Fuji Xerox Australia’s monochrome production solutions.
"Not only is the Nuvera 288 faster than any other cut sheet product on the market - the print quality has dramatically improved due to our new Emulsion Aggregate (EA) toner technology and fusing."
Another new Xerox innovation, Pass Through Programming, keeps the system running even if one of the engines needs service, providing maximum productivity and uptime for commercial print operations and in-house print facilities.
The Nuvera 288 is based on technology developed by researchers in Xerox labs in New York as well as the Palo Alto Research Centre and is supported by more than 50 filed patents.
The advanced finishing modules recently added to the Xerox Nuvera 144 are also available on the new Xerox Nuvera digital system, making it possible for print providers to automatically staple and stack large quantities of printed documents including booklets, technical manuals and promotional material.
The Xerox Nuvera 288 Digital Perfecting System offers a wide support for media such as uncoated and coated stock, carbonless, covers, oversized stocks and pre-printed inserts allowing Fuji Xerox customers to explore new markets and applications such as books, manuals, direct mail and transactional.
A unique sheet enhancer module detects humidity and moisture in the media type and will automatically adjust the curl on the paper during production to ensure a completely flat sheet. This is a huge benefit for post processing requirements.
"Its productivity, print quality and supported media make the Nuvera 288 Digital Perfecting System an excellent offset replacement," says Aked. "This is just the beginning of a year of a range of innovative new Fuji Xerox technology and initiatives."
The Xerox Nuvera 288 Digital Production System will be available in Australia later this year.
