Boksburg Printers has beefed up its print-on-demand capability with the purchase of a Xerox Colour C75 press from DigiPress together with the support from Bytes Document Solutions, Africa’s leading document management technology and services company, and the largest Xerox distributor in the world.
Having been in business for more than 60 years, Boksburg Printers has one-, two- and five-colour litho printing machines, and offers customers cost-effective printing with faster turnaround times. The addition of the new digital C75 press gives it big production power in a small footprint, with the flexibility to produce the most demanding short run print jobs quickly.
“We offer a wide range of general and specialised printing capabilities,” says Andrew Tinker, MD of Boksburg Printers. “These different revenue streams have helped us grow the company through the recession. We are truly passionate about printing and we have a great reputation in the market due to our focus on quality and service excellence.”
To ensure the company remains at the forefront of technology, says Tinker, Boksburg Printers installed a Roland A1 litho press last year. “The Xerox C75 was brought in this year to keep the business in line with the latest developments in digital printing and to enable us to grow our digital capacity and profitability. We have now created synergy between digital and litho.”
The Colour C75 Press has image quality and productivity that meet the demands of the print on-demand market while also having enhanced functions, services and certification programs to improve work efficiency and maximise press uptime. It replaces Boksburg Printers’ previous Xerox press, a Docucolour 252, the enabling the company to be more competitive on price, quality and turnaround time on jobs like business cards, flyers, manuals and booklets.
“We have always had exceptional customer service from Xerox, so when the time came to replace our old technology, we decided to choose the latest that Xerox has to offer,” says Tinker.
The C75 combines duplex printing, copying and scanning and is capable of printing and copying at 2400dpi on a range of coated and uncoated stocks from 64 to 300gsm at speeds of up to 75 pages per minute, using Xerox EA Dry Ink. It also has the capacity to print between 20 000 and 75 000 pages per month.
The user interface is designed for flexibility and users can scan copy and print with ease and have the power to produce the most complex jobs in the quickest time. It also comes standard with accounting software that resides locally on the device and lets you track, analyse and limit device usage so that you can see where your costs are coming from and take control of them.
“Colour printing has seen unprecedented growth in South Africa, with the demand for personalised and impactful communication increasing all the time,” says Barry Hasleham, digital print specialist at Bytes Document Solutions. “The C75 reinforces Xerox’s leadership in this space and provides reliable performance, exceptional media handling, and outstanding productivity to customers like Boksburg Printers, helping them to grow their business faster. It comes with a collection of the finest colour management technologies and services designed to deliver outstanding colour and more saleable output, so that print companies can boost their profitability.”
