Publishers’ Graphics recently installed two new Xerox 150 printers in its Carol Stream, IL headquarters, adding to its portfolio of high speed book printing equipment. Now all three of its facilities –Carol Stream, Florence, KY and St. Louis possess similar equipment and technology. The result has been a boost to productivity and print consistency at all three branches.
Probably the most notable enhancement of the I-Gen 150 is the “dpi” capability which increased from 300 dpi to 1200 dpi. DPI is a measurement used to describe the resolution number of dots per inch in digital print and the printing resolution of a hard copy print dot gain. The more dots per inch, the more detail, clarity, and resolution for your images. All imagery – whether black-and-white, sepia toned, or full color, benefits from this enhanced feature – think of it as High- Definition TV for your books!
The best thing though might be the faster speeds of these machines. With the ability to print 137-150 pages per minute versus 110 pages with the older machines – several hours can be shaved off the production time of the average print run. That alone reduces bottlenecks and manages production flow more efficiently throughout all the plants.
These days, quicker turnaround is definitely an expectation of customers, as is exceptional quality. With that in mind, the Xerox I-Gen’s have turned out to be the perfect “digital fit” for PG’s book printing.
