At drupa, new platforms, products and inks frame Inkjet’s future.
“Xerox is disrupting inkjet. Come see what it looks like today and what it will do for our customers in the future,” said Robert Stabler, senior vice president and general manager, Global Graphic Communications Business Group, Xerox. “We have two new platforms and a wide range of products designed to make inkjet more accessible and affordable for print providers.”
Powerful new Inkjet Presses
The cut-sheet Xerox Brenva HD Production Inkjet Press and the continuous feed Xerox Trivor 2400 Inkjet Press are both on display at the Xerox stand at drupa. According to InfoTrends, global production colour inkjet print volume is expected to grow 23 percent through 2019.The presses give print shops options and opportunities to break into the lucrative inkjet market.
The Brenva HD opens up new possibilities for inkjet entry into the transactional, light direct mail and book markets by combining the cost effectiveness of inkjet with the flexibilities of a cut-sheet platform. With the Trivor 2400, print shops can move to broader application areas such as catalogues, magazines and colour books. The press features high productivity in a small footprint.
