Xerox India unveiled the new DocuColor 8080 digital press at Ipex in Mumbai.
The machine handles jobs ranging from direct mail and calendars to booklets and collateral – opening up new ways for printers of all sizes and scope to increase business. Core to the DocuColor 8080 are its three features: productivity apps, low gloss dry ink and colour accuracy that add versatility to the New Xerox Press and offer printers a competitive edge.
Speaking at the launch of the Docucolor 8080, Pankaj Kalra, head, graphic communications business group, Xerox India said: "Our focus is to help customers produce more jobs, reduce costs and grow their business. The DocuColor 8080 was built with this in mind."
"Technology like the DocuColor 8080 gives printers the power to expand capabilities, meet production demands, strengthen relationships with customers and capture more revenue," added Kalra.
According to Xerox, the new technologies in Docucolor 8080 comprise: productivity apps which simplify the common print jobs with ready-to-use templates. The apps range from job ticketing and personalisation to pre-press operations, allowing printers to significantly increase the number of jobs completed daily.
Each app comes with software from the FreeFlow Digital Workflow Collection and on-site support to help users reach maximum productivity fast. Low gloss dry ink, which is ideal for various marketing applications, offers a smooth, matt-like finish that accents colour images, including shadows and highlights.
The ink creates the look and feel of offset – highly sought after by marketers and graphic designers – with the speed and simplicity of digital technology. The automated Color Quality Suite (ACQS) is accomplished with the ACQS, a set of tools driven by an inline spectrophotometer, which reads colour data inside the printer.
ACQS automates colour management tasks with minimal operator involvement – allowing for more high-value, profitable applications to move quickly through the shop.
According to Kalra, "the DocuColor 8080 features three different print servers – users can select the one that best matches their production environment. The networked servers, offered by Xerox, EFI Fiery and Cero allow operators to produce consistent colour quality easily."
