Xerox releases 2 new MFPs

September 29, 2008

Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) has introduced two new desktop multifunction printers (MFPs) that offer high-end scanning and fax capabilities at an affordable price. The new Phaser® 3300MFP multifunction printer and the WorkCentre® 4260MFP multifunction printer, help trim the amount of time workers spend handling documents and managing information.

Priced at $599, the Phaser 3300MFP delivers printing, copying, scanning and color faxing capabilities. With print and copy speeds up to 30 pages per minute (ppm), it’s faster and can handle more pages per month than other products in its class, including the comparably priced Hewlett-Packard LaserJet M2727nf MFP. High capacity toner cartridges and a toner-saving mode also help busy offices reduce running costs.

The WorkCentre 4260 delivers powerful workflow tools at an affordable price. With ID Card Copy, workers save time when copying both sides of an ID or insurance card onto one side of a page. ID Card Copy is especially helpful in healthcare organizations when adding information to patient files. Fax Forward to E-mail saves time and paper by automatically routing incoming faxes to an e-mail address. The WorkCentre 4260 also comes with automatic two-sided printing and the Save Print feature lets users store frequently used documents and forms on the hard drive for fast printing anytime.

Environmental Benefits of Solid Ink Technology

June 20, 2008

With many corporations renewing a focus on being environmentally responsible, and utilizing “greener” technologies, organizations are taking another look at Xerox manufactured solid-ink printers and MFPs.

In just one pass, the Xerox-exclusive imaging process achieves a nearly 100% ink-to-page transfer efficiency during normal printing. Compare this with a traditional color laser printer using toner technology, and the Xerox solid ink process produces 90% less waste.

Less to replace, less to throw away.

Over the course of 100,000 printed pages, the Xerox solid-ink printer produced 5 pounds of materials that needed to be disposed of. A comparable color laser printer produced 157 pounds of waste during that same study.

Xerox Opens $24 Million Solid Ink Factory

December 14, 2007

WILSONVILLE, Ore., Dec. 12, 2007 — Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today opened a state-of-the art automated ink manufacturing plant to serve growing demand for its proprietary solid ink color printers as more businesses convert from black-and-white to color printing.

The $24 million factory fills 10,000 square feet of previously unused space on the company’s campus here outside of Portland, Ore., and expands Xerox’s production of solid ink by 10 times. Over time, as the plant reaches full capacity, Xerox expects to add 20 employees; about 75 employees work at the factory now.

The new plant will produce Xerox’s latest generation of solid ink, which first became available in September when Xerox launched its Phaser™ 8860 color printer and the Phaser 8860MFP color multifunction printer. These products feature a breakthrough in solid ink technology that for the first time makes color printing as affordable as black and white. Nearly five years in development, the new crayon-like ink sticks have been developed to last longer than ever before. By increasing the total number of color pages the ink sticks produce, Xerox has drastically reduced the price of color printing. When comparing the cost of the device and the ink, printing on the Phaser 8860 is two times less expensive than using equivalent laser printers from other manufacturers.

The ink sticks also produce 90 percent less waste than comparable color laser products and were designed to melt at a lower temperature, reducing energy consumption by 14 percent.

“Xerox has redefined color printing with the advancements we’ve made in solid ink,” said Jim Rise, vice president and general manager of the Solid Ink Business Unit. “Known for its exceptional image quality and ability to print vibrant colors, solid ink was initially the preferred technology for graphic artists. Now, we’ve taken it to a level where solid ink is the affordable, easy to use color printer for businesses of any sort and size. That’s why we’re investing in this new factory; our success in solid ink is really just getting started.

“The plant follows Xerox’s opening in September of a $60 million emulsion aggregation (EA) toner plant near Rochester, N.Y. EA toner produces sharper images than traditional laser printer toner, and uses less toner per page.

Inkjet vs. Laser Printers

December 7, 2007

Which printing technology is right for your office?
Here are some general guidelines to consider before purchasing your next piece of equipment:

Laser Printers
Laser printers have historically had a higher up-front purchase price than their inkjet counterparts. Recently, this has become less of an issue in the monochrome category where prices on desktop and small workgroup printers have dropped dramatically. There has been some movement in the color category as well, making the purchase price more attractive to the small office/home office user. Laser Printers would be a good choice if there are several people who use the device daily, long or complex jobs are frequently run, and where fast print speeds and advanced finishing capabilities are important.

Inkjet Printers
Inkjet Printers typically work well for individuals who want the convenience of a desktop printer with low upfront costs, and photo printing capabilities. An inkjet printer would be a good choice if there is a low print demand, confidential desktop printing is needed in an office environment, or photo features are a high priority. They typically have a lower equipment purchase price, but a higher cost-per-page than comparable Laser Printers.

Either choice has it’s benefits, but you should consider which options are most important to you. Is a lower purchase price more important than the long-term supplies cost? Do you print mainly in monochrome or color? Are the jobs you send typically large and complex, or small and infrequent? By selecting devices that best fit your office needs, you can increase your productivity, and reduce your costs, and that’s always a good result.
