Xerox iGen 5 Digital Press, Rialto 900 Inkjet Win 2015 Must See ‘Ems Awards
NORWALK, Conn.—August 11, 2015—Two new Xerox digital presses have won 2015 Must See ‘Ems awards as products that visitors to GRAPH EXPO 15, North America’s largest graphic arts tradeshow, should not miss. The two products—the Xerox iGen 5 Press and Xerox Rialto 900 Inkjet Press—will have their North American debuts at GRAPH EXPO, which takes place next month in Chicago.
Both of Xerox’s winning presses address the digital production color market, which is projected to grow from nearly 460 billion pages today to 725 billion pages globally by 2018(1). The Rialto 900 addresses the fastest growing segment of that market, as U.S. production color inkjet page volume will exceed that of digital color toner by 2017(2).
The Xerox iGen 5 Press is the next-generation platform of Xerox’s flagship, cut-sheet, xerographic digital presses, and features the family’s first optional fifth toner station to extend the press’s color gamut and increase its capability to match spot colors. The press is being recognized for its wider gamut, flexible configurability that includes three speed options, and its industry-leading automation and press availability—delivering up to 40 percent more production time than competitive presses.
The Rialto 900 is the world’s first fully integrated, narrow web inkjet press, with a compact, all-in-one design that simplifies operations and permits it to fit easily into any size production facility. It is being recognized for its innovative design and for breaking down the common cost and complexity barriers to inkjet adoption. The Rialto 900 addresses an unserved segment of the market that sits between high-volume cut-sheet presses and low-volume inkjet and makes the high-growth world of inkjet printing more accessible to more print shops than ever before.
The two Xerox presses won their awards in the Pressroom: Digital Presses category. Both presses will be showcased in Xerox booth #613 at GRAPH EXPO 2015, which takes place Sept. 13-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
The annual Must See ‘Ems competition recognizes the most compelling new products being introduced at GRAPH EXPO and is presented by the show’s producer, the Graphic Arts Show Company.
