Xerox Ingenious iGen 5 Industrial Digital Production Press Print Technology For Quality And Productivity

This Is Ingenious

Xerox never stops innovating, reimagining, building, and doing. Xerox is always innovating to produce printers, presses, and technology that gives your business the competitive edge.

Xerox's Ingenious Merger Of Quality And Productivity Gives Your Business Advanced Automation

In the automation of anything, quality and productivity present opposing challenges and for years in the print industry, quality and productivity have presented challenging odds. The customer’s choice between quality or productivity was forced because achieving both was too difficult and too time consuming for a press manufacturer to produce a press that provides both, productivity and quality. That is no longer the case. The iGen® 5 Press brings quality and productivity together, automatically, through advanced automation that unlocks the consistent visual splendor your customers want, with a productivity that increases their margins. There is no trial and error involved and no need for manual operator intervention. The iGen® 5, and the automation it delivers, vanquishes the time consuming processes that other press solutions require. And what is the result? Your customers get extraordinary CMYK with less labor and waste so, their business makes more money.

Xerox's Ingenious Configurable Platform Gives Your Business The Ultimate Investment Protection

The ingenious Xerox innovative press design merges the best characteristics of its industry-leading iGen® Press into a single, optimally configurable iGen® 5 platform. Your print team chooses the speed, ink colors, paper length, and the feeding/finishing which is needed to best accomplish the profitable result. The iGen® 5 platform not only provides a configurability strategy to deliver the exact solution your print team needs, but it also ensures your business continues to benefit from Xerox’s future iGen® 5 innovations. What your business invests into the iGen® 5 platform, with its productivity technology, gives your business a built in level of protection that stems from the ability of the platform to always be ready to perform as it has the ability to stay up to date, and scale, with tomorrow’s demands.

Xerox's Ingenious 5th Print Station Lets Your Business Add Value Beyond CMYK

The ingenious innovation of Xerox’s optional 5th print station unlocks serious flexibility. Your print business, all of a sudden, has the flexibility to extend the color gamut or to add high-value specialty effects, inline. The iGen® 5’s Gamut Extension technology dramatically increases your printing business’ ability to match a wider variety of PANTONE® colors. The choices of Orange, Green, or Blue are now valid options as a supplement to CMYK which allows your team to increase their viability in delivering on-brand content at the will of the customer. It doesn’t stop there. Swapping White, Clear, or Fluorescent Yellow Dry Inks into the 5th station enables designers to amplify jobs with spot decorative effects and to provide new stock and security options. Simply ingenious!

Features Diagram of Xerox iGen 5 Production Press

A. Feeder Module: Feeder module (up to six), two paper trays each; load while run; up to 30,000-sheet capacity.

B. Cut-Sheet Format: Large digital cut-sheet format, up to 14.33″ x 26″ (364 mm x 660 mm). 

C. Optional Extra-Long Sheet (XLS) Capability: Extra-long digital cut-sheet format, up to 14.33″ x 35″ (364 mm x 889 mm) for additional application flexibility.

D. Gripperless Transport: Gripperless transport mechanism enhances feeding reliability across a broad range of medias.

E. Standard or Matte Dry Ink: Standard Dry Ink is available in CMYK. The Matte Dry Ink option is ideal for photo-rich applications, particularly those running on uncoated or silk stocks. Available for CMYK and Specialty Dry Inks.

F. Optional 5th Print Station: iGen 5 enables you to add Gamut Extension Colors (Orange, Green, and Blue), Xerox® White, Clear, and Fluorescent Yellow Dry Inks as well as MICR to bring differentiating value to digital applications. 

G. Auto Carrier Dispense: This method of combining Dry Ink and carrier yields consistent color uniformity from the first print to the last and from job to job. With Auto Carrier Dispense, operators no longer have to stop the machine and change the developer, resulting in greater machine availability and productivity.

H. Auto Density Control: Every press, be it digital or litho, can be susceptible to density variations and streaks. Auto Density Control is patented technology designed to detect streaks in output before they occur and fix them without operator intervention. The system automatically measures the image density for a series of test patches from the top and bottom of the page. If it detects a difference, it digitally compensates for any inconsistencies — ensuring consistent image density across the page.

I. Automated Image-on-Paper Setup: With Automated Image-on-Paper technology, manual setups are replaced with a predictable, automated routine — eliminating costly and time-consuming image registration setups.

J. Single-Point Transfer: Single-point image transfer to paper with speeds up to 9,000 A4 (150 per minute 3-up on 14.33″ x 26″, 75 per minute 2-up on 11″ x 17″) 4/0 impressions per hour.

Acoustic Transfer Assist Option: Sound waves help to embed toner into media, enhancing print quality on rough or textured stocks.

K. Intelligent Fusing: Intelligent fusing adjusts for differences in stock; runs every sheet at rated speed.

L. Inline Spectrophotometer: We built a spectrophotometer into the iGen 5 paper path and integrated it with the Color Maintenance Tool to tell the operator when the press is ready to print superior output. It makes some pretty remarkable things automatic — things such as High Definition Linearization, Advanced Color Profiling, and Spot Color Calibration.

M. Fuser Module: If you choose the optional XLS capability, your iGen Press will be configured with a Fuser Module to the right of the print engine to accommodate the longer sheets.

N. 26″ (660 mm) Stacker: A larger stacker module (up to four) and two wheeled carts per stacker enable productive stacking up to 26″ (660 mm) media. And, Document Finishing Architecture (DFA) compatibility means you can add your choice of automated inline finishing solutions.

O. Top Tray: Top tray for interrupt jobs, proofs, or subset samples programmed during the course of a run. This tray will be replaced by a larger top tray to accommodate sheets up to 35″/889 mm in length if the optional XLS capability is chosen.

P. Dual Mode Sheet Feeder by C. P. Bourg: As a stand-alone device or as part of the Xerox IntegratedPLUS Finishing Solution, the Dual Mode Sheet Feeder provides an efficient means of preparing jobs for finishers, providing automated finisher setup and for sharing a finishing device with multiple printers.

Q. Xerox IntegratedPLUS Finishing: Selected finishing devices can be set up automatically, through JDF instructions, whether or not they are attached to a specific printer. An operator simply loads sheets and covers into the finishing device, scans a bar-coded banner sheet, and presses “start.” No manual finisher setup is required, because time is money.
