The Document Centre Uses Xerox Nuvera 288 Digital Systems to Produce High-Quality Black-and-White Jobs
Since The Document Centre, a digital printing company, installed its first Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) Nuvera™ 288 Digital Perfecting System in 2006, productivity has soared. The company has printed more high-quality, high-volume black-and-white catalogs, benefit books, technical materials and museum-quality printing jobs than ever before.
The Document Centre was one of the first print providers in the country to experience the productivity of the Xerox Nuvera 288 DPS. In the first 90 days it printed more than 5.5 million pages on the system, and less than a year later ordered its second Xerox Nuvera system.
The Xerox Nuvera 288 DPS proved to be a worthwhile investment from its first print run. The company printed a series of four 200-plus page catalogs for a billion-dollar heating, ventilating and air conditioning manufacturing company. The speed of the system’s 288 duplex impressions per minute, tandem-engine architecture produced more than 14,000 catalogs in less than 120 days. Pre-printed color tabs were inserted on the fly as the black-and-white pages were printed, with no compromise in print speed or productivity.
“We absolutely would not have been able to complete such a large job without the print speed of the Xerox Nuvera 288,” said David Rohe, owner and president, The Document Centre. “The system is a workhorse, offering the utmost reliability and productivity. It’s essential for our customers who demand complex jobs with a short turnaround.”
A key benefit of the Xerox Nuvera 288 DPS is its use of Xerox’s patented chemically-grown Emulsion Aggregation Toner, which provides a smoother finish that is nearly indistinguishable from offset. Because The Document Centre produces numerous brochures, posters and marketing materials for customers such as museums and art galleries that require high image quality and sharp halftones, EA Toner and the ability to print on coated stocks were primary factors in the company’s decision to purchase the Xerox Nuvera 288 DPS.
Rohe also likes the Xerox Nuvera 288’s full-bleed print quality - a must for complex, highly-personalized print jobs - where text and images are printed right up to the edge of the substrate with no compromise in image quality.
According to Rohe, the Xerox Nuvera 288 DPS’ ease of use and the nominal training period his staff required have been key to growth. “Within days of installation, the staff was comfortable with the machine and all of its functions, and it hasn’t slowed down since,” added Rohe. “It’s been so productive that we now use our third shift to take on additional revenue-generating work.”
The efficiency of the Xerox Nuvera 288 DPS gave The Document Centre an idea for a large defense contractor. It began printing low-cost, black-and-white copies of benefit books already being produced on its digital color equipment for distribution to outside parties who do not require full-color prints, such as financial advisors. This became a cost-effective solution that has spread to other customers.
The Xerox Nuvera 288 DPS is the industry’s fastest cut-sheet duplex system and features Xerox’s “Pass Through Programming” technology, which keeps the Xerox Nuvera 288 DPS running even if one of the engines is stopped. At a resolution of 4800 x 600 dots per inch and 156 lines per inch, the system is also the highest resolution black-and-white digital production system on the market.
The Document Centre’s Xerox presses are equipped with Xerox FreeFlow™ DocuSP™ Print Servers that connect the entire print workflow and enable easy job preparation and routing. Many of the company’s print jobs are repeat projects, so the ability to electronically store job components like those in the 200-plus page HVAC catalog helps operators quickly access specific requirements and submit the job with little additional programming.
The new black-and-white digital systems round out The Document Centre’s robust digital portfolio, which already consists of two flagship Xerox iGen3™ 110 Digital Production Presses and two DocuColor™ 8000 Digital Presses.
