Xerox Adds MICR and Coating Options to Inkjet Systems

– Xerox continues to add more flexibility and functionality to its CiPress® Production Inkjet Systems with three new features – Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR), an in-line coating system and an ink measurement and proofing tool.

These enhancements can open a new set of applications – such as checks, rebate coupons and financial forms – as well as more aesthetic, durable direct-mail pieces, while saving time and money.

CiPress’ MICR Print Module

  • Prints MICR up to 500 feet-per-minute on standard untreated stocks allowing white paper in full color check production.
  • Enables field upgrades, which protect the investment of current users while expanding application opportunities for new customers.
  • Prints mixed applications in the same run with MICR and non-MICR jobs; eliminates need for a dedicated MICR printer.
  • Allows migration to digital color applications while adding the benefit of MICR on demand.

MEGTEC In-Line Aqueous Coating System

  • Enhances applications with a high-gloss overlay for artistic value and added endurance to create attention-grabbing direct-mail pieces.
  • Leverages widely available commercial coating fluids and offset coated and uncoated media to deliver economical high-impact pieces.
  • Delivers simplex or duplex coating in-line at full printer speeds, maximizing productivity and efficiency without the labor and movement of materials associated with offline coating.

CiPress Ink Measurement and Proofing Tool

  • Pre-determines the cost of ink usage on a job or page basis for more precise job estimation.
  • Produces soft proofs of the printed output so jobs don’t have to run and be inspected on the press, saving time and improving workflow productivity.
