Xerox Corporation (Stamford, CT, U.S.) has introduced two of its fastest printers—the DocuPrint 1050 and 525. The digital roll-fed, continuous-feed printers can reportedly produce more than 1,000 images per min, giving users increased business production and cost savings.
The printers, which are designed for publishing and transaction document applications, are equipped with a wider paper web that Xerox says increases application flexibility and enables more images per linear foot. The machines have a 19.5-web width, which enables them to print 33 percent more 6- by 9-images per min, the most common format used for paperback books, statements, and invoices. This, Xerox says, helps to reduce run costs while increasing output.
Furthermore, the new DocuPrint models are said to print up to 600 dots-per-in on pin-less or pin-fed paper at up to 244 ft per min. According to Xerox, this is 25-percent faster than its next-fastest 600-dpi printer.
Both models are said to integrate seamlessly with open workflow systems and can be flexibly configured and operated to meet most production needs. The DocuPrint 1050, which pairs two DocuPrint 525 models, is used for twin two-sided printing, producing as many as 1,064 images per min 2-up for 8.5- by 11-in pages. The 1050 can also print as many as 1,952 images per min 3-up for 6- by 9-in book pages.
The printers are currently available in both North America and Europe.
