Xerox announces the Xerox Baltoro HF Inkjet Press, a cut-sheet production press that enables clients to print high-volume, transactional work and high-quality direct mail and catalogues on a single press with superior image quality and productivity. The Baltoro HF is Xerox’s first product using this platform.

“We engineered the Baltoro HF by leveraging the best of our iGen and High Fusion inkjet technologies. The result is a breakthrough platform that expands into the commercial print environment and supports high-quality production with economics similar to offset printing,” said Tracey Koziol, senior vice-president of Global Offerings, Xerox. “Designing and manufacturing the Baltoro HF from the frame to the engine gives us a greater ability to continuously advance the platform at a faster clip.”

With innovation at its core, the Baltoro HF is the only press in the entry-level class to use automated intelligence to optimise and maintain colour and image quality as well as self-correct in real-time. The press’s automated intelligence, along with its High Fusion ink and Xerox High Fusion W-Series Inkjet Heads, delivers true high definition 1 200dpi x 1 200dpi image quality without the need to condition media with priming solutions or pre-coats. Eliminating the priming solution reduces press size, power consumption and total cost of ownership while increasing productivity.

The Baltoro HF also offers additional time-saving advantages. Its speed, paired with having the widest print area in its class, enables the press to increase client productivity by more than 115%. On the front end, Xerox FreeFlow Core automates the time-consuming prepress work, while Xerox FreeFlow Print Server allows clients to add new jobs while the press is running.
