Xerox has announced two new digital print engines aimed at in-plants, high street and commercial printers producing jobs ranging from photobooks and brochures to DM and catalogues.

The Xerox Color J75 and C75 combine duplex printing, copying and scanning with a range of finishing options and are available immediately in North America, with worldwide availability slated for 1 March 2013.

Xerox said the Color C75 was aimed at those looking to start or expand a digital print business, while the J75, which will be shown at Graphics of the Americas (GOA) in Orlando, FL from 21-23 February, is aimed at commercial print shops producing high-volume, high-value applications.

Both printers are capable of printing and copying at 2,400dpi on a range of coated and uncoated stocks from 64-300gsm at speeds of up to 75 pages per minute (ppm).

However, while the higher-end J75 can handle all paper stocks at its top-rated speed, ouput on the C75 drops from 75ppm for uncoated stocks to 51ppm for coated.

Sheet sizes for both printers range from a minimum of 102mm x 142mm up to a maximum of 330mm x 488mm. Both presses are available with Xerox FreeFlow or EFI Fiery EX print server. The J75 also features Xerox's Automated Color Quality Suite (ACQS), which combines an inline spectrophotometer with colour management tools to minimise operator involvement.

Recommended average monthly volume for both devices is 20,000 to 75,000 pages, although the J75 has the higher duty cycle at 450,000 pages/month compared to the C75's 300,000 pages per month.

Pricing was unavailable at the time of writing.
