Hints & Tips for Xerox Card SolutionsSelect a product for Hints & Tips on Using Xerox card solutions:
The following outlines tips for achieving optimum toner fusing on DocuCards with a 4135, 4635, 4635MX, 6135, DP96, DP180, 6180, 6100 or a Docutech 135.
Use fuser AGENT, part #8R2955. Do not use fuser SHIELD, part #8R4077.
Variable Data Position:
Because of the difference in thickness between the carrier sheet and the card, quality imaging is not possible around the edges of the card or window. Do not image on the document or cards within " of the edge of the card.
Since we will be fusing on the card and the document, have the Xerox service representative set the fusing temperature at the high end of the nominal temperature range.
Fuser Contact Arc:
Set at specified width uniform across the roll length.
Always image the front side of the DocuCard first, then the back side. Note- When imaging WindoWell DocuCards, change the machine speed from pitch 7 to pitch 5. This will slow the machine down and allow more space between documents in the duplex inverter. If you run WindoWell DocuCards at pitch 7, the edge of the document catches on the edge of the window when two sheets pass each other in the duplex inverter.
Please contact John Viavattine in Webster if you have more technical questions regarding fusing on DocuCards. John can be reached via phone at (585) 422-2705, via fax at (585) 455-5964 or via email

Using a Tilt-a-tronWhat is a Tiltatron:
Tiltatron: A separate mechanical feeding device, designed and built by Xerox engineers, that enables feeding of DocuCards. Its tilting action counteracts the "stack build up" in the thicker areas of the forms, allowing increased numbers of forms to be loaded into the paper supply drawer.
Why You Need a Tiltatron:
DocuCard throughput volume can be dramatically increased with the use of a drawer insert called a Tiltatron. By using the Tiltatron you can increase the quantity of forms placed in the drawer from 100 to 400. Different equipment and different DocuCard sheet sizes require slightly different Tiltatrons. The Tiltatrons for standard format DocuCards are available from CAS in approximately 2 weeks.
Ordering a Tiltatron:
When ordering a Tiltatron for standard format DocuCards, use the following part numbers:
