Xerox recently launched a new inkjet press, breaking down barriers such as high-print volumes, large footprint and cost. The Xerox Rialto 900 Inkjet Press offers entirely new features and carves out a new space within the booming production color inkjet segment.
Xerox claims the machine is the world’s only fully-integrated roll-to-cut sheet, narrow web inkjet press that is designed for print providers who produce 1.5 to 5 million impressions per month. It has the smallest footprint of any inkjet press on the market (3.58×1.55 meters, including the press tower).
To help lower the entry point into production inkjet technology, the Rialto 900 prints duplex jobs, one-up on the smallest, narrow web (9.84″/250 millimeters) on the market.
“We are creating a new, disruptive inkjet market segment with the Rialto 900 and there’s room for everyone,” said Paul Morgavi, COO, Inkjet Division, Xerox, and general manager, Impika. “The Rialto 900 changes the playing field by merging the cut sheet, inkjet and offset worlds—an important convergence for providers looking for a competitive edge and for print’s long-term survival.”
Additional Features Include:
• 1,000×1,000 dpi perceived resolution for high-quality output.
• Missing jet detection and duplex matching that are integrated and automated, saving time.
• Media flexibility with Xerox’s water-based pigment HD ink.
• Choice of a PDF or IPDS digital front end.
• Integrated cutter and stacker.
• Large, touchscreen display for easy access to media selection, imposition, DFE status and job history.
The Rialto 900 is the first product jointly developed and launched by Xerox and Impika, after two years of the acquisition.
