    Xerox V80 NCR marking Transfer Belt

    The condition of the second BTR does not seem to matter, in my experience, for printing NCR. I have seen it look like it's been rubbed with sandpaper, and yet it still prints NCR no issue. 95% of our NCR is B&W so it's not critical for colour or even coverage as it's text and a few lines...

    Xerox V80 NCR marking Transfer Belt

    Hi, Versant 3100, we run a lot of NCR. In fact, since we installed an Iridesse last year, it's been mostly NCR on the 3100 since then. The 2nd BTR does get trashed with a build-up of carbon from the NCR. I use an old one and if we need to run any other media I change it for a good one and it...

    Xerox Iridesse Info Needed

    Same here, the drums are very different to the Versant range, they are built like tanks in comparison and are said to last to life by the engineers we have who have been working on other Iridesse machines for a couple of years. Time will tell but I like what I hear.

    Xerox Iridesse Info Needed

    Operator her. Will give my personal view on the machine. We added a Iridesse to our production alongside a 4 year old Versant 3100. Before that we had a KM C8000, which I will not get into here, but the worst 5 years of my life as an operator. 3100 was a fantastic upgrade form the KM, ran...

    Thoughts on Digital Press charges/contracts

    Hi guys, Speaking form the UK, I have heard a bit of chatter about some of our European friends having printers on a click only charge basis and not paying a monthly lease fee on them? Is this a thing? Does anyone have experience of this in the UK? If so, I would assume it's with an inflated...

    Label printing advice

    Guys, thanks for the replies. It does now not make sense to go with the in-house production. I think I just needed to hear someone else confirm it for me! Cheers!

    Label printing advice

    Hi guys, Looking some advice on label printing... Our company recently got labels printed to put on each box we send out to our customers. Labels are white, 62mm circle with solid colour background and white area being left for the logo/website name. Currently we are using approx 1000/month...

    Konica Minolta C8000 feed issue

    Have you checked the gears at the back of the trays? There are plastic gears which we have had experience of teeth shearing off and jamming sheets. How long have you had the c8000?

    Which is the Best Konica Minolta Bizhub Model

    I cannot stress this enough. STAY AWAY from the C8000!! If it's the last printer on the planet, do not install one. As someone who operated one for approx 4 years, it was the worst 4 years of my working life. It is still in our workshop, and has not turned a cog in 18months. I could write a...

    Versant 3100 Installed.

    From what we have been told it will do A5. I know theres about 11mm of adjustment in the A4 booklets (bigger or smaller), within the RIP from what I seen on Tuesday, but not sure if its as much on A5.

    Versant 3100 Installed.

    Nice. It is a heavy duty finisher thats impressive for an inline system. We would notice cracking more on smaller books. We do some 8page and 12page booklets and that where we would have seen it. Just be interesting to see if someone has experienced this as the sales guys never do!

    Versant 3100 Installed.

    Ah I wasn't aware of that. Strange how manufacturers don't offer the same options in different parts of the world. So do you get any issues with the spines cracking on smaller page count runs?

    Versant 3100 Installed.

    I believe it is called a crease/fold but im just not convinced that it would be as good a a dedicated creaser. Just wanting to know from someone in the field if it is an issue as it never is an issue with the sales guys!:p

    Versant 3100 Installed.

    Went to see this booklet finisher yesterday at our local Xerox HQ. Very impressive to see it in action and the finish of the booklets is brilliant. They were running a 28pp 200gsm self-cover booklet with a square fold as a sample. I think the Xerox guidlines for what it will do, in terms of page...
