    E.F.I. Fiery

    Could anyone recommend a cheaper alternative to EFI Impose?

    Nuvera (EA) End Of Life?

    Maybe this is a Zerographic-led ploy to force your hand? Especially if there is an inkjet sale at the end of it. There's hundreds of Nuveras out there.

    I need a new B&W machine, opinions on the Titan?

    You're spot on about the stacker. You'd need an operator tied to the machine otherwise. The Black is actually very dark grey, isn't it? The low fusing temperature means the toner isn't in the paper rather on top of it. We've had situations where finishing operators have scuffed the prints with...

    I need a new B&W machine, opinions on the Titan?

    Hi LFelton, The Titan is a real beast and eats paper. It's the most reliable digital device I have ever known. However, be mindful that it's intended for short-run book production. The low fusing temperature makes for little curl and ripple. The lack of electrophotography makes for little or...

    How does a Versant 80 compare to Konica C3070?

    The rationale for outsourcing the job would be if the profit (rather than revenue) from the single job didn't exceed the cost of acquiring a device just for this. I'm intrigued that a Versant 80 could produce something the KM c3070 couldn't. KM finishers tend to be on a par with Xerox on a like...

    Xerox C60 vs J75 vs V80

    The J75 is really old. It was identical to the even older 770 anyway. The c60 is very lightweight with low duplex weights and a hard drum fuser (so no good for textured stocks at all). The 5th colour toner bottles are obscenely expensive and the change over takes quite a long time so unfit for a...

    How does a Versant 80 compare to Konica C3070?

    Konica Minolta's aren't usually more expensive than Xeroxes in my neck of the woods. Where are you in the UK? They both use similar technology with similar friction feed and fusing temperatures (although the Versant 180 has a belt fuser). I can't see how the Versant 80 will be much better from...

    Does anyone use a Konica MFP for light production?

    You'd probably need a production machine for this. Try lying to the KM by calling the media heavier than it really is. That would ramp up the fusing temperature but it might cause other issues (such as curl) and isn't ideal.

    Flawless BW production printer

    The Océ machines (like the Titan 6000 and DT135) are extremely well made (except the cheap Canon finishers on the DT135), however, it's important to factor in the limited earning potential from not being able to produce over-printed work. This is a significant proportion of mono volume. The...

    Canon C10000VP VS Ricoh 9200

    That's above Xerox's own recommended volume cycles. It was launched in 2015 so averages 367k a month if you bought an early edition. It's a good machine but not quite a Ricoh c9200 or Xerox Iridesse that are the gold standard. As for the garbage statement, many Ricoh, KM and Canon (especially...

    Battle of the 400

    I've just read that article. My company sells both KM and Ricoh and it's complete nonsense. In fact, we find KM parts are a little cheaper but conversely those said parts don't last quite as long. It evens out.

    Xerox c560

    The DC560 is fast approaching obsolescence so it would be a short term solution. Not worth the disruption if you ask me. Go for a new or nearly new Konica Minolta (or Olivetti/Devlop) or a Ricoh. A high-end office box would do that simple workflow unless superb registration is crucial for quick...

    Canon C10000VP VS Ricoh 9200

    The Canon is still a souped-up imagePRESS 7000VP that was introduced in 2005. It's massive and requires a huge power pull. On cold days in Venlo, we used to turn the Canon on to heat the place up.

    Canon C10000VP VS Ricoh 9200

    The Ricoh c9200 isn't garbage and stands up well against any digital machine and is half the price. A Ricoh c9200 and a Ricoh c7200SX covers every angle (media latitude/CMYK+) and you still have cash in your pocket against one Iridesse (the best Xerox product).

    Flawless BW production printer

    The Océ 6000 mono range is the Rolls-Royce of monochrome printing. But be mindful that the CopyPress/Direct Imaging won't do over-printing of litho-shells (a big achilles heal in mono printing). It's made for short run book production due to the cool fusing process enabling a perfectly flat...

    Switching from a Xerox 550 to a C60 or Versant 80?

    SIQA does make a difference. The c60 has good image quality but can't do structured stocks, doesn't duplex 300gsm, can't do envelopes, 660mm sheets and has little SIQA tools and alignment is manual. The Versant is a big step up. Also consider the Ricoh c5200 or wait until the new c5300. These...

    Thoughts on Xerox Versant 3100 ??

    The Versant 3100 is nothing like the ColorPress in terms of build quality despite the same speed and performance. The image quality is more matte than the CP and it's just over half the price. However, if you're not doing extensive heavy media (which it struggles with) then the Versant 180...

    Update: Xerox / HP Takeover Attempt

    That didn't stop Xerox from acquriring two dealerships in the UK, ITEC and Alto Digital this week. Unusual strategy in buying up dealerships. They have spent the last few years slowly getting rid of all their direct salespeople except inkjet and Strategic Accounts. Seems like a strategic U-turn...

    Xerox 8080 - subsystem fault :009-336

    The 8080 is the machine that all Xerox Service engineers advise their Sales Reps not to sell.
