Three new graphic arts RIPs – EFI, Creo and Freeflow – were introduced to the digital printing industry, transforming the DocuColor 5060 into a production printing colour device. The launch took place against the backdrop of Rapid Digital’s two iGen3s – the only pair of the massive digital presses in the country. It was likely the opportunity to see the workings of the high-volume digital printing centre as much as anything else that spurred the crowd to venture out on a dark and stormy Sydney night.

According to Sue Threlfo (pictured), graphic arts business manager NSW, the turnout shows there is an ever increasing interest in the latest digital products. The DocuColor 5065 is FujiXerox’s latest entry into the increasing popular ‘lite production market. It operates at speeds of 50 impressions per minutes (65ipm mono) printing on stocks up to 300gsm.

Using what Fuji Xerox describes as a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser the 5065 has a resolution of our times greater than conventional laser technology. With the release of the Creo Spire CX250 server the company is promoting the machine for the highest graphic arts quality printing. The EFI Fiery RIP is targeted to quick printing sectors, while the Xerox Freeflow is a more economical product.
