Xerox Increases Automation with the New Versant 80 Press

To meet the demands of today’s printing professionals Xerox introduces the Versant® 80 Press with solutions that meet a wide range of needs – with more quality, faster performance and better results.

For print-for-pay and in-plants, the Versant 80 combines new features and functionality to produce high-end applications faster on more media types. With increased automation both devices keep print environments at peak performance levels.

Versant 80 Press
The Versant 80 provides production press capabilities with walk-up simplicity, offset-quality performance and automated features that remove the guesswork from optimizing image quality, color and registration. Printing at 80 pages-per-minute (ppm), the device delivers ultra HD, 10-bit image quality at 2400 x 2400 dpi and can handle a variety of media types with a compact Belt Fuser system and Xerox’s EA Low Melt Dry Ink.

Printers looking for extra productivity can add an optional Performance Package, which maintains top speeds of 80 ppm on all stocks up to 350 gsm along with an in-line spectrophotometer for increased color automation.

“We were overwhelmed with how well the Versant 80 matches Pantone Matching System colors. Prior to this press, we had to manipulate the color, but with the Versant 80 we just select a spot color and it hits it right on – the first time,” said Betsy Allen, owner, Cortland Press & Carbon Copies.
