Operating at 288 impressions per minute - 144 two-sided pages - the company’s new twin-engine technology makes the Xerox Nuvera Digital Production System run twice as fast with image quality that is equivalent to offset printing standards.
This digital duplex production system, which features two Xerox Nuvera engines physically connected together in one system, can produce books and brochures at a resolution of 4800 x 600 dpi, the highest of any black-and-white digital production system on the market, Xerox says.
A new Xerox innovation, called "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 printing facilities.
The printing system, based on technology developed by researchers in Xerox labs is supported by more than 50 filed patents. It will launch in the second quarter of 2007 in North America and Europe.
In addition to developing dual-engine technology for the Xerox Nuvera digital system, new finishing modules are now available on the Xerox Nuvera 144, making it possible for print providers to automatically staple and stack large quantities of printed documents including booklets, technical manuals and promotional material.
The new offerings are the latest in a series of initiatives designed to strengthen Xerox’s leadership in the graphic communications market and help print providers profit from high-growth trends associated with colour and black-and-white digital printing, workflow software, and personalised communications.
