Dear ally170, what about the toner/drum issues we all have on v80, v180, v280, v2100, v3100, v4100 that we all have? The toners of iridesse are different, you don't have any dots or lines issues?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 1000's of sheets between engineer call-outs, we print a lot of personalised calendars and this thing churned work out like nothing else. Last Nov we put over 260K on it without missing a beat.
The Iridesse, in my opinion, blows the 3100 out for print quality. We ordered it with CMYK only, no special colours etc as we don't need that. The print quality alone is outstanding. Been running approx 6 weeks now, lot of testing etc and setting profiles and paper stocks up, but very impressed so far.
Lot of adjustments can be done for quality through the stand-alone pc that operates the printer, also been trained as TKO and, as daunting as it looks when you open the doors and take covers off, a few screws has most of the parts out and changed. Videos are in the TKO side of the engine if you forget a step of get confused to show how to change all parts.
Very impressed so far, coming into our high production period and if this machine is anything like the 3100 has been, and still is, we won't have any issue looking at a second to replace the 3100.
Hope this helps, and if anyone has questions I will do my best to provide info as far as I can.
We have no issues with dots or lines on ours. Once we had banding and just ran the Automatic Banding / Streaks feature and it took care of the problem.Dear ally170, what about the toner/drum issues we all have on v80, v180, v280, v2100, v3100, v4100 that we all have?

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.Dear ally170, what about the toner/drum issues we all have on v80, v180, v280, v2100, v3100, v4100 that we all have?

Sounds like an adjustment that can be made in your settings. Optimize for speed would be the first place to start. Then there should be an NVM that can be changed where it won't adjust so often.Hello,
I am an iridesse owner, we bought a used iridesse 3 months ago. It had only 500k prints and the machine was in perfect condition.
Since xerox installed the machine we have one big issue that techs couldnt resolve : each 20 prints the machine stops printing and starts ADJUSTING IMAGE QUALITY for 10 sec and starts printing again. The machine can print 500 prints in 15min but our machine does 500 prints in 1 hour.
Does any one have thus issue?
