TORONTO, ON., Nov 5, 2012  – Sherwood Printers, one of the leading wholesale print suppliers in the Greater Toronto Area, experienced a productivity increase of more than 25 percent within days of operating the new Xerox iGen™ 150 Press.
 
Sherwood Printers, the second customer worldwide to purchase the iGen 150 Press, recognized that the press’ fast production time and repeatable image quality would help improve line screens and detail around fine text.
 
“We’ve been a long-time iGen customer, having started our journey with the Xerox technology in 2004 when we purchased the iGen 3, followed by an upgrade to the iGen4™ Press in 2009,” said Manoj Sheth, owner of Sherwood Printers. “Now we’re working with one of the most productive digital cut-sheet color presses in our industry.” Sheth estimates the company’s image quality has improved by 90 percent since the start of the relationship with Xerox.
 
The iGen 150 Press’ faster print speed and improved automation in quality control also means more productive hours during a shift. Features include:
  • A new 2,400 x 2,400 dpi imaging system – the most precise resolution available on an iGen system to date. New line screen delivers refined shape, sharp detail and text quality.
  • An Auto Density Control System detects and corrects streaks before they occur.
  • Automated Color Maintenance that eliminates manual steps by analyzing color and notifying the operator when the press is ready for production.
The press also can handle a range of paper stocks such as textured, translucent and heavy cover-weight papers. Print providers can easily create mixed paper jobs such as direct-mail campaigns with tear-out reply postcards or wedding albums.
