Fuji Xerox Singapore Announces Production Presses to Meet Diversifying Finishing Needs of On-demand Printing

Versant™ 3100 Press and Versant™ 180 Press

SINGAPORE, November 22, 2016 – Fuji Xerox Singapore Pte Ltd launches two new production presses – Versant™ 3100 Press and the Versant 180 Press – for the entry production color market. The presses will be available from late November in Singapore.

“The Versant™ series were first introduced at Fuji Xerox’s “Solutions That Matter” event, and have been designed with creative print businesses in mind, who typically face challenges as manual labor increases the time spent on ensuring quality work,” said Sharon Kong, General Manager, Production Services Business Group, Fuji Xerox Singapore. “By reducing the amount of time spent on full-bleed trims, creasing and cover insertions, the presses can help organizations to improve businesses’ productivity, save time and reduce costly errors through a wide range of automated finishing.”

Performance and Quality
Versant™ 3100 Press, an entry model for the professional printing market, is designed to make the work of print professional effortless, accurate and efficient. It is capable of printing at 100 ppm productivity, 2,400 dpi fine resolution, when using 52 to 300 g/m2 A4 paper. Automatic image control with the in-line sensor also reduces operational load.

Versant™ 180 Press, a light-use model for intra-company printing, delivers a print productivity of 80 ppm, 2,400 dpi fine resolution, when using 52 to 200 g/m A4 paper. It is also equipped with Simple Image Quality Adjustment (SIQA) to reduce operational load and a series of office-use functions, including security using an IC card for copying and scanning, and the GX Print Server bypass for quicker printing of office documents.

Combined with the newly developed optional Finisher D6 and other finishing lineup, Versant™ 3100 Press and Versant™ 180 Press will meet finishing needs in both variety as well as quality, such as when making booklets. With their high quality printing performances, the new presses aim to contribute to the further popularization of print-on-demand.

Compact new finisher

Finisher D6 dimensions and volume: 855 W x 725 D x 1200 H mm, 0.75 m3, allowing it to fit in limited office space. Although compact in size, it offers a range of finishing functions such as a stacking and stapling as standard features. Punching, cover page insertion, paper folding, and saddle stapling functions are also available as optional features.

 

Professional quality in creating automatic saddle stitched booklets

High-quality booklets can be automatically created by connecting the newly developed Finisher D6 with Booklet Maker, Crease/Two-sided Trimmer D1, and SquareFold Trimmer D1 to the presses. Conventionally, designing and printing booklets require extra attention such as specifying white margins or not placing images on the crease to avoid toner breakage. Such unproductive activities can now be eliminated. The top and bottom trimming function provided by Crease/Two-sided Trimmer D1, and the face trimming function provided by SquareFold Trimmer D1 enable full-page layout design on a two-page spread.

Also, Crease/Two-sided Trimmer D1 makes a crease on pages prior to folding them into a booklet, preventing toner from cracking and ensuring a beautiful finish. Up to five creases can be added to a page (applicable to 157 to 350g/m2 paper), and they can be either a mountain or valley fold. This contributes to expanding print applications by enabling the creation of complicated booklets such as accordion-fold or gate-fold booklets.  

 

Controllers with rich functionalities that enhance users experience

The GX Print Server which has been well received in the market since it was first introduced to the Versant™ series in 2015 is now equipped with the latest Raster Image Processor technology Adobe PDF Print Engine, its finer gradation can be printed as well as providing improved operability; accelerating the print on demand procedure through improved image quality and operational efficiency.

Powered by Fiery, EX-P3100 and EX-3100, which drive Versant™ 3100 Press and EX180, which controls Versant™ 180, feature the latest and advanced Fiery NX Premium ad NX Pro servers. With its new Fiery QuickTouchTM software, they will bring a whole new experience to the users.

A pioneer in manufacturing print-on-demand presses, Fuji Xerox will continue to contribute to expanding customers’ businesses through its extensive support services provided by knowledgeable sales representatives and wide-ranging product lineups.
