New single-pass, Xerox digital print enhancement press


Staff member
Xerox’s new Iridesse production press—a high speed, 6 station color press combining 4-color printing with up to 2 specialty dry inks—creates striking CMYK, rich metallics and iridescent special effects in a single printing pass; never seen before in digitally printed pieces.

The Iridesse press eliminates multiple processes usually required for print embellishments, increasing capacity and profits for customers. According to Keypoint Intelligence / InfoTrends, digital print enhancement can result in a very short ROI as profit margins on such embellishments can be as high as 50 to 400%. Now available for orders, but no date specified for when deliveries will begin.

Iridesse Features:
  • Prints at speeds up to 120 ppm, can run stocks from 52-400 gsm.
  • Xerox FreeFlow Core’s pre-built workflows enable automatic transformation of text and graphics for printing gold and silver without editing the source documents.
  • Fiery EX-P 6 Print Server enables creation of customized workflows for metallic applications with advanced RIP capabilities & color management.
  • 2 Dual Advanced High Capacity Feeders with Bypass & Inserter options that allow running up to 8 different stocks in a single job.
  • Finishing options include the new Xerox Crease and Two-sided Trimmer, which creates a durable crease fold and gives booklets a premium quality edge when used with the Xerox Production Ready Booklet Maker and Xerox SquareFold Trimmer Modules.
