From Start to Finish, Xerox Boosts Productivity of Nuvera Printers with New Automation Software and Finishing Options That Deliver More Profitable Black-and-White Print Jobs



    TORONTO, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - Xerox Canada has made it easier for print
providers to streamline production processes and expand the types of
black-and-white print jobs they can create, such as books, manuals, postcards
and invoices.
    New productivity features for the Xerox Nuvera(R) EA line of digital
black-and-white production systems include integration with FreeFlow(R) Print
Server version 7, the company's most powerful print server. In addition, new
in-line finishing options tape bind, stitch, fold, trim, cut and stack
high-quality documents with minimal operator involvement.
    "Imagine a printing process that is 'lights out,'" said Quincy Allen,
president, Xerox Production Systems Group. "That means the entire printing
process from job submission through finishing is completely automated -
increasing the profitability of every job that comes through the shop. And
when about 85 percent of all digital pages are still printed in black and
white, that additional productivity adds up to real dollars for printers."
    FreeFlow Print Server version 7 builds on the success of Xerox's FreeFlow
DocuSP(R) platform, used in more than 40,000 in-plant facilities and graphic
communications companies worldwide. FreeFlow Print Server version 7 supports
the Xerox Nuvera 288 EA Perfecting Production System and the Xerox Nuvera
100/120/144 EA Production Systems and offers:

    
    -   A graphically rich user interface allowing operators to handle most
        jobs with minimal training.
    -   Expanded workflow capabilities that make it easy to submit jobs.
    -   New security features and support for IPv6, Internet infrastructure
        government standards.

    New in-line finishing options for the Xerox Nuvera EA family include:

    -   Xerox Tape Binder easily produces bound books and manuals from 15-125
        sheets.
    -   Xerox Basic Finishing Module Direct Connect is a stapling and
        stacking system that provides a direct interface to some third-party
        finishing devices.
    -   C.P. Bourg PowerSquare(TM) Booklet Maker combines stitching,
        folding, spine formatting and trimming to produce SquareBack(TM)
        books of up to 200 pages.
    -   Lasermax Roll Systems DocuSheeter(TM) NV-R unwinder enhances roll-fed
        workflows by directing 50" diameter rolls into a module that cuts
        single sheets, which are rotated and fed on demand into a Xerox
        Nuvera EA Production System. The sheet rotation feature is ideal for
        applications such as perfect-bound, case-bound and saddle-stitched
        documents.

    The latest enhancements for the Xerox Nuvera 288 EA Perfecting Production
System are debuting at Graph Expo, the printing industry's largest annual

    -   CEM DocuConverter(TM) cuts, slits and stacks oversized printed sheets
        with multiple images to deliver complete document sets on a
        convenient conveyor, ready for offline or near-line finishing.
    -   A high-capacity sheet-fed module that expands the media range to
        accommodate paper sizes up to 12.6" x 19.3" that are ideal for
