Xerox adds new indoor aqueous printers to portfolio

Xerox has added the Epson Stylus Pro 9900 and the Epson Stylus Pro 7900 to its range of wide-format printers.

‘The two products add to the top end of the Xerox indoor aqueous inkjet product range,’ says Alewyn van Staden, wide-format product manager at Bytes Document Solutions, authorised Xerox distributor to 27 sub-Saharan African countries. ‘We offer the combined Xerox/Epson solutions because this offers a best-of-breed aqueous wide-format printer, along with unique Xerox software products, as well as Bytes Document Solutions’ first class nationwide sales, service and support.’

The 610mm Epson Stylus Pro 7900 and 1118mm Epson Stylus Pro 9900 set a new standard for the professional large-format printer market. An improved ink formulation, a new printer mechanism and a raft of new technologies make these two new additions to the Xerox range ideal for high-value production graphics. In addition, the optional calibration and verification system, the Epson SpectroProofer, means the two new products can confidently be used for remote proofing.

The new printer mechanism implemented in these two products builds on Epson’s MicroPiezo TFP (thin film piezo) print head technology, introduced with the launch of the Epson Stylus Pro 11880. Both the number of nozzles and throughput have been doubled in the new machines, resulting in a maximum speed of up to 40 square metres per hour. At these increased print speeds, the new 10-channel MicroPiezo TFP print head ensures production of the highest image quality.
