Xerox Unveils Rialto 900, Impika Evolution Inkjet Presses at Hunkeler Innovationdays
NORWALK, CT—February 24, 2015—Xerox’s newest press will make inkjet technology a reality for more print service providers by breaking down barriers such as high-print volumes, large footprint and cost. The Xerox Rialto 900 Inkjet Press offers first-of-its kind features and carves out a new space within the booming production color inkjet segment.
The world’s only fully-integrated roll-to-cut sheet, narrow web inkjet press 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—11.9x5.1 feet/ 3.58x1.55 meters (including the press tower)—a cost-effective option for various production environments.
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."
The device offers the speed and image quality required to take on full-color, personalized direct-mail, statements and book production. Its all-in-one design means the front-end controller, paper roll and finishing components are housed within the machine—a space saver and service convenience.
Automating and simplifying production is seamless with a range of workflow offerings, including XMPie PersonalEffect StoreFlow, Xerox FreeFlow Core and VI Suite and solutions from GMC and Solimar—all driving the press at rated speed for maximum productivity.
Additional Features Include:
- 1,000x1,000 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, accomplished within just two years of the acquisition. Additionally, Impika’s portfolio is now fully-integrated into Xerox’s production family and brand.
