10 New Printing Business-Driving Trends

At drupa 2016, Xerox unveiled a range of innovative technology solutions to boost printing business growth and efficiency, enabling you to:

1. Find affordable flexibility.

With the Xerox® Brenva™ HD Production Inkjet Press, combine the cost-effectiveness of inkjet with the flexibilities of cut-sheet for direct mail, book and transactional markets.


2. Expand your offerings.

Provide your customers greater flexibility in their print choices by expanding into catalogs, magazines and colour books with the new continuous feed Xerox Trivor™ 2400 Inkjet Press.


3. Increase your spectrum.

Accurate, affordable and flexible used to be opposing forces, but with 5-colour Extended Gamut printing, you can finally discover the magic combination in colour reproduction. The Xerox® iGen® 5 Press allows you go from 55% of the available Pantone® Plus Coated library to matching 90%.


4. Make forms interactive.

Need more than a yes or no answer? You can now incorporate digital signatures and other variable content fields within existing forms with Xerox® FreeFlow® Variable Information Suite 15.0, one of the most powerful and flexible personalisation solutions available.


5. Replace frustration with automation.

Find new efficiencies by automating print, web and mobile content production through a simple, unified workflow with Xerox® FreeFlow® Digital Publisher which customises publications from documents to videos.


6. Feel sunny in the cloud.

Automating prepress processes simplifies and improves your digital print production. Now the automated cloud offering of Xerox® FreeFlow® Core 5.0 affordably streamlines workflow operations for any size operation.


7. Get accurate colour fast.

Speed is often the enemy of accuracy, and that is especially true when you’re managing colour across multiple presses. With Xerox® IntegratedPLUS Automated Colour Management, predictable and accurate cloud-based colour management is possible, even on presses in multiple locations.


8. Add intelligence to your packaging.

Xerox® Printed Memory makes your packaging smarter by adding ultra-thin, flexible printed circuitry to printed labels to ensure genuine products and more easily track distribution. The labels contain up to 36 bits of rewritable memory and can even include an encrypted secure code only readable by authorised personnel.


9. Print onto 3D shapes.

The Xerox® Direct to Object Inkjet Printer allows you to print directly onto objects ranging in size from a bottle cap to a basketball, on virtually any surface whether the material is smooth or rough, slightly curved or stepped.

 

10. Customise your cartons.

Realise the business opportunities and flexibility of digital printing in the folding carton market, from multiple versioning to outright customisation, with a first-of-its-kind 40-inch B1 digital sheetfed press developed by Xerox and KBA. (Available next year.)
