Xerox is making a huge push in inkjet technology with its new Xerox Baltoro HF Inkjet Press. The cut-sheet production press allows users to print high-volume, transactional work and high-quality direct mail and catalogs on a single press. This is the first Xerox product utilizing this platform.
The core of the Baltoro is innovation, as it is the only press in the entry-level class to use automated intelligence to optiomize and maintain color and image quality. It can also self-correct in real-time. The automated intelligence coupled with High Fusion ink and Xerox High Fusion W-Series Inkjet Heads deliver ture HD 1200 by 1200 DPI image quality without the need to condition media with priming solutions or precoats. This reduces press size, power consumption, and ultimately total cost of ownership with an increased ROI.
“We engineered the Baltoro HF by leveraging the best of our iGen and High Fusion inkjet technologies. The result is a breakthrough platform that expands into the commercial print environment and supports high-quality production with economics similar to offset printing,” says Tracey Koziol, senior vice president of Global Offerings, Xerox. “Designing and manufacturing the Baltoro HF from the frame to the engine gives us a greater ability to continuously advance the platform at a faster clip.
The Baltoro also offers time-saving capabilities – speed and the widest print area in its class enables the press to increase clinet productivity by more than 115 percent. Cerox FreeFlow Core automated prepress work, while the print server allows users to add jobs even while the press is running.
The Baltoro HF is now available for order globally.
