New iGen with a fifth colour option
Ten years after its launch, Xerox is coming out with a new version, the fifth, of its flagship iGen high volume digital colour printing system. Even though its architecture is pretty much unchanged compared to the iGen 4 series, Xerox claims it offers productivity gains of up to 25%, thanks to savings in job set up, quality control and reprinting. On top of that the new iGen series has an option for a fifth colour (blue, green or orange,) which should be particularly useful in the printing of logos with very specific pantones.
The iGen 5, as it is called, will be available in three configurations: the iGen 5 150 (150 ppm), the iGen 5 120 (120 ppm) and the iGen 5 po (90 ppm). The fifth colour option brings the iGen series in line with other high volume digital colour printing system supppliers like Indigo, Kodak and Xeikon.
The iGen 5 first public appearance will take place at the forthcoming Graph Expo in September where Xerox could also announce the first orders for the system.
