ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 25, 2014 – Debuting at Graph Expo, the Xerox Impika eVolution is known for its flexibility and scalability – critical must-haves in today’s demanding print environment. Now available in North America, eVolution offers print service providers another way to capitalize and maximize inkjet’s business growth potential.

Flexible enough to handle plain papers and high-quality, inkjet-treated stocks, the drop-on-demand piezoelectric production inkjet device runs at speeds up to 832-feet-per-minute/3,628 pages-per-minute. It offers roll-fed, continuous-feed capabilities with a 20ʺ web width.

Patented variable speed technology – made possible by a frame architecture suited for two to four print heads – maintains maximum image quality both when increasing and decreasing rates. This scalability doubles the productivity on a single platform and delivers more usable, sellable prints day after day.

For added productivity and automation, FreeFlow Digital Workflow Collection can be integrated into eVolution, Xerox Impika Compact and the Xerox Impika Reference. Print service providers easily can expand their application offerings – particularly transactional – with FreeFlow’s prepress and workflow solutions.

Additional eVolution features include:

  • Adjustable printing quality – evolves to meet the specific requirements of each application with three print resolutions: 600 x 360, 600 x 600 and 600 x 1200 dpi. Exceptional print quality is achieved with variable drop size technology.
  • Modular and scalable configuration – protects printers’ investments with the ability to upgrade technology, color (up to six) and drop volume (up to five) configurations on site.
  • Media and toner flexibility – allows 25 minutes of “open time” using next-generation, high-density pigment inks on low-cost, inkjet-treated matte or silk papers, minimizing waste clean and purge cycles.
  • Two controller options – Impika iController supports IPDS workflows for high speed, variable data jobs that can be updated easily following configuration adjustments, while Impika iFlow, a PC-based RIP and spool solution, promotes PDF and PostScript workflows.

Inkjet focus throughout booth
