    Xerox Drums issues Resolved???

    2nd BTR's was the first issue, and yes we run alot of coated. I can say for sure one thing that has saved me in this whole mess is the xerox techs that I have. They know I am on tight deadlines and always responded in less than 24 hours and had me running. It got to the point that I have a spare...

    Xerox Drums issues Resolved???

    I would say you accurately described most of the usual problems. Many drums we retired after only 10% life used on them. I never tried any of your methods but I may just to see if I can get the full life out of a drum. I definitely do not claim to be an expert on these machine. What you...

    Xerox Drums issues Resolved???

    So I as well as most everybody else on "the Planet" have been reporting Versant drum issues. I was to the point of maybe looking elsewhere for printers. Long story short, I have a very busy period every year and I have to front load on supplies to make it thru that period. I, knowing how bad the...

    Xerox Versant 180, #10 envelopes bleed 2 sides??

    That is what I am looking for. I never thought of doing it that way and opening the flaps. I have done some A size envelopes that way in the past. Any more I just stack them in tray 6 and let em rip. It is only for 1000 so I can probably get away with that . Thanks

    Xerox Versant 180, #10 envelopes bleed 2 sides??

    That is what I was thinking. Just thought maybe I was missing something. Can you bleed envelopes on a digital envelope press like a Xante or Oce?

    Xerox Versant 180, #10 envelopes bleed 2 sides??

    So I have an envelope job I would like to bleed on 2 sides, anyone have a solution for this. I send the file with bleeds and attempt to get it to bleed on the left and bottom edge but it still leaves a white line at the edge. I think you can achieve this on the digital envelope presses, is there...

    V180 EX-I - V280P Upgrade thoughts

    No spot colors, we create everything, all CMYK images. All placed in Indesign usually with some backgrounds then pdf for high quality print.

    V180 EX-I - V280P Upgrade thoughts

    That may be what I am looking for. Since this is the base Rip for this machine I do not have Impose, Compose or any "Options". The rip can handle the files, just takes a long time and if something has to be redone the whole process starts over. I am trying to make sure when it gets to the stage...

    V180 EX-I - V280P Upgrade thoughts

    Is there a way that I can just flatten a pdf (4-500 pages) before ripping it to be sure there would be no transparency issues? Page by page is not efficient, I'm looking for a one and done solution.

    I was told that it was not available from the Ex-I. It needed to be purchased with the performance package. ??

    V180 EX-I - V280P Upgrade thoughts

    I did the "optimize RGB Transpaarency" checkbox with our last machine and knew of that one. I still occasionally get some pages I have to save as .tiff and import back into the job and pdf again. What it gets down to is processing time also. I have to step the file to print 2-up on 12x18 and...

    V180 EX-I - V280P Upgrade thoughts

    Yes basically I would think that we would be better off with the Ex-180 Fiery. I was told I could not do that with our machine. So to flatten the pdf's what software would you use..? ( I like cheaper)

    V180 EX-I - V280P Upgrade thoughts

    I am looking for some advice on ways I should upgrade our V180. It is a base model that has the Fiery FS200 controller. Not a lot of bells and whistles, no APPE, we have had transparency issues, which is why I am looking to upgrade. I’ve been told I can’t upgrade to the EX standalone controller...
