Datagraphic becomes first UK company to buy Xerox Rialto 900

Datagraphic has become the first company in the UK to acquire the Xerox Rialto 900 inkjet press as part of a seven-figure investment in new printing equipment.

The secure print and online document delivery specialist based in Rugby, Warwickshire, snapped up the machine, launched at last week's Hunkeler Innovationdays 2015.

“Installation date is to be finalised with Xerox, but we anticipate implementation from July 2015,” said managing director Robert Hoon, who did not disclose the kit's cost or wider investment details.

“The Rialto 900 will provide additional capacity rather than function as a direct replacement. Reel-to-cutsheet format, capacity and footprint matched our needs.”

Hoon added: “We will streamline production processes and improve efficiency to handle the increased demand we’re seeing for hybrid mail and data-driven documents in our multi-channel services.”

The Rialto 900 is billed as the world’s only fully-integrated roll-to-cutsheet, narrow web inkjet press. It is designed for print providers who produce 1.5m to 5m impressions per month.

It has the smallest footprint of any inkjet press on the market, 3.6x1.6m including the press tower, and offers 1,000dpi perceived resolution for high-quality output.

It joins a product portfolio at Datagraphic that includes a Xerox iGen 3 press, Xerox Nuvera 120 and 144 production systems and a Xerox Colour 1000 press.

The firm's clients include many of the UK’s leading document management companies needing secure processes for documents containing sensitive personal and financial data.

Xerox UK general manager for graphic communications operations Mike Holyoake said: “Through faster turnarounds and improved production efficiency, this investment will enable the company to continue delivering a high-quality service to their current customers while also taking their business operation on to a new level.”

Datagraphic just pipped trade printer DCL to be the first UK company to sign for the Xerox Rialto 900.
