Xerox Expands Product Application Flexibility with Thick Stock Option on iGen 5 120
NORWALK, Conn.—November 3, 2015—A new thick stock option for Xerox’s iGen 5 120 digital press opens a new range of application flexibility for print providers producing packaging, retail signs, brochures and business cards. The new option delivers the efficiencies of short runs where added substrate strength and rigidity is required, plus the flexibility of variable data on selected 18- to 24-point (458 to 610 micron) coated and uncoated stocks. All standard stocks and weights are supported as well.
Many of the most popular brands in these categories of stocks have already been tested by Xerox. Other xerographically-compatible stocks can be tested based on customer requirements. Additionally, selected stocks on the Xerox Tested Media List, up to 14.33x22.5, can be auto-duplexed.
Founded over 100 years ago in the small town of Fairbury, Nebraska, McBattas Packaging started out as a newspaper company with a print and office supply store across the street. To keep up with the changing times, the company reinvented itself several times, most recently by propelling the business forward with its printing and packaging expertise. Thanks to Xerox’s thick stock capability, McBattas is a leader in the short-run digital packaging market space.
The thick stock capability is currently available in the U.S., Canada and Europe, and it can be added to new or existing iGen 5 120 presses. It is also available on the iGen4 110 Diamond Edition presses.
The Xerox iGen 5 won a 2015 Must See 'Ems Award at GRAPH EXPO 15. Recognized for its wider gamut, flexible configurability with three speed options, and its industry-leading automation and press availability—the iGen 5 delivers up to 40 percent more production time than competitive presses.
