Xerox will showcase new wide format solutions, including the IJP 2000 wide format printer, at the Sign Africa Regional Expo, taking place on 12 February 2014 at Emnotweni Arena in Nelspruit. The company will also showcase its J75 Colour Press.

The increased speed of the IJP 2000 means printers can accept and produce more wide format jobs, even last minute requests. For example, it can print an A0 page in full colour with a resolution of 1600 x 1600dpi in just seven seconds. It will give customers a huge competitive advantage.

The printer, which is driven by Caldera’s Grand RIP Plus, is suitable for a range of substrates such as textile, vinyl, backlit, banner fabric and stoplight films as well as standard and coated papers. It comprises five stationary print heads that use breakthrough technology, enabling printers to achieve results that have been previously unattainable in the market.

The company will also showcase the J75 Colour Press. With the growth of colour pages still a sweet spot for printers, the J75 makes it easier to capture more lucrative jobs, ranging from photo books and brochures to direct-mail pieces and catalogues. For commercial print shops producing high-volume, high-value applications, the Xerox Colour J75 offers additional productivity, running all paper stocks, including heavyweight up to 300gsm, at full rated speed, 75 pages per minute (ppm). It can easily match corporate and industry colours with Xerox's Automated Colour Quality Suite (ACQS). With ACQS’ inline spectrophotometer and colour management tools, accurate, reliable colour can be achieved with minimal operator involvement.

The new Xerox 6705 wide format A0 multifunction machine with colour scanner functionality will also be exhibited. It features high-quality image input and output at 600 x 600 dpi. The colour density adjustment feature gives you the flexibility to accentuate signatures and seals, emphasize the density of red markings and turn off specific colours.
