Fuji Xerox has launched two new production printers: the Versant 3100 Press and the Versant 180 Press.
The Versant 3100 Press can print 100ppm and the Versant 180 Press prints at 80ppm. Both deliver 2400dpi fine resolution with paper handling capability ranging from 52 to 350gsm.
The Versant 3100 offers an automatic image control with an in-line sensor to reduce operational load. The Versant 180, described as a light-use model, has what Fuji Xerox calls a Simple Image Quality Adjustment to reduce operational load and a series of office-use functions, including security using an IC card for copying and scanning, and the GX Print Server bypass for quicker printing of office documents.
The company says that, combined with the newly developed optional Finisher D6 and other machines in its finishing lineup, the new printers will meet finishing needs in both variety as well as quality. For example in making booklets.
The Finisher D6 features a compact body, allowing it to fit in limited office space. It offers a range of finishing functions such as a stacking and stapling as standard features. Optional features include punching, cover page insertion, paper folding, and saddle stapling.
Fuji Xerox says that operators can create high-quality booklets by connecting the Finisher D6 with its Booklet Maker, Crease/Two-sided Trimmer D1, and SquareFold Trimmer D1 to the presses. The top and bottom trimming function provided by Crease/Two-sided Trimmer D1, and the face trimming function provided by SquareFold Trimmer D1 enable full-page layout design on a two-page spread.
The Crease/Two-sided Trimmer D1 makes a crease on pages prior to folding them into a booklet, preventing toner from cracking, according to Fuji Xerox. This allows the creation of complicated booklets such as accordion-fold or gate-fold booklets.
At the front end, the printers use the GX Print Server, equipped with the latest RIP technology APPE3. They also use EFI Fiery with the latest Fiery NX Premium ad NX Pro servers, incorporating the new Fiery QuickTouchTM.
