Fuji Xerox Australia has made enhancements to its popular Versant Print Production Series to enable faster, smarter, and more flexible printing capabilities.
The company has launched the new Versant 3100i Press and Versant 180i Press as successors to the Versant 3100 Press and Versant 180 Press Production Series respectively.
New features across both presses include flexibility and automation, aiming to deliver on optimised productivity for Australian businesses looking to quickly build on their print capabilities.
The Versant 3100i Press was designed to streamline high-volume print workloads and boost business productivity, while the new Versant 180i Press showcases high-performance flexible printing with enhanced scan and copy capabilities.
Fuji Xerox Australia head of graphic communications marketing Bruce Murphy said combined with other adjustment attributes, the operations of the upgraded presses can be reduced to minimise the operator’s intervention, freeing up time best spent on increasing efficiency in one’s business and building customer relationships in an increasingly competitive landscape.
“We are excited to introduce our customers to this next generation of the Versant series, who we understand are always on the look-out for how new printing technology can benefit their business,” he said.
“The technology of the new Versant 3100i Press and Versant 180i Press enables such a wide variety of applications assisting our customers to build up the blocks of business opportunity.”
Specifically, a new Air Suction Feeder has been introduced as an add-on capability to support broader media handling and increase wider print applications.
This includes banner printing of up to 1.2 meters and automatic duplex printing of banner paper up to 330 x 864 mm.
With this new feeder, the printers can handle a wide range of paper including thick and long paper, which enables stable transportation of various types of paper and improves productivity. Printers can now also offer more diverse options for their customers as they can offer more printing types at higher volumes.
The Feeder can handle heavyweight thick paper of up to 400 g/m2. The new paper tray is also compatible with various paper sizes. Paper which typically cause stress in paper feeding – such as paper containing a concentrated amounts of paper dust, uneven paper, cohesive coated paper and preprint paper for offset printing that uses powder – can now all be transported in a stable way, delivering more volume capacity and faster job processing.
Printing speeds have been improved by approximately 2.5 times for the Versant 3100i Press while the Versant 180i Press boasts an improved printing speed of two times compared to earlier models.
To further improve uptime, the Full Width Array technology and Fuji Xerox SIQA (Simple Image Quality Adjustment) technology automatically adjusts skews and front to back registration up to banner size.
