TechnologyImpika® Inkjet Presses
The Xerox(r) Impika(r) Inkjet Press platform consists of a series of product configurations which are built from a set of common attributes. The platform allows flexibility to customize a configuration that is tailored to the customer's environment and applications. With upgradeable configuration ranging from monochrome only to full color, 416 up to 833 feet per minute, single or tandem tower printing, and options such as MICR and VHQ mode, the Impika platform is designed to be fully scalable, meaning the customer's initial investment can easily be upgraded over time as their operation grows and new product innovations come to market.
The modular approach to the platform presents itself in three products. The most popular model, the Impika Compact, is the smallest of the configurations, with single engine duplex printing with full web width of 20 inches. This enables a low cost of entry without compromising performance. At the other end of the spectrum is the Impika Evolution. Customers with the most demanding print volumes and image quality requirements benefit from its printing speeds of up to 833 feet per minute and (Very High Quality) VHQ mode. Customers with unique requirements such as MICR or extreme scalability needs are best suited for the Impika Reference.
The Impika systems offer a wide range of settings to help customers optimize the quality and productivity as well as control their costs. The piezo electric drop-on-demand print heads offers a choice of three resolutions--360 x 600, 600 x 600, and 1200 x 600 and five drop sizes--3, 6, 9 11, and 13 picoliters--meaning each application can be adjusted on the fly with the settings that best meet its requirements. This flexibility allows customers to right size the settings for each and every job. High density inks have been specifically optimized for performance on plain offset grade papers meaning the inks deliver brilliant image quality and color without the need for expensive inkjet treatments and coatings, keeping paper costs low. The long open time of the ink minimizes the need to clean cycles, which keeps productivity to a maximum and ink waste low, while also maintaining image quality by minimizing missing jets.
