The Xerox iGen 3: Popular in the Digital Printing
Since its launch in 2002, the Xerox iGen3 digital printing press has been one of the most popular products in the digital printing world, and a key investment for companies that require commercial printing and corporate documentation solutions across the globe.
Running at output speeds in excess of 110 pages per minute, the Xerox iGen 3 consistently left the competition in the dust. Even today, as newer iterations of the Xerox iGen line hammer out printed material with astounding celerity, Xerox products remain the fastest on the market. In fact, Xerox boasted a 30 percent increase in color page print volume from the Xerox iGen series between 2006 and 2007 – an unheard of speed boost in a closely competitive market.
At the first year of lauch, Xerox handled a mere 126 corporate customers worldwide, working tirelessly to enable them to print a million or more pages per month from digital printing press products like the Xerox iGen 3. Today, that number is closer to ten thousand, as digital printing technology has caught up to traditional lithography in terms of sheer quality, and seeks to topple offset printing by providing digital users with a wealth of options that only operate in a digital workflow environment. In fact, many Xerox iGen 3 clients actually operate multiple digital presses, connecting them through software and operating them in tandem to generate millions of printed pages per month.
The global digital printing market was valued at $68 billion back in 2007, and estimates place that number at nearly double that amount today. This is great news for Xerox, since the iGen line continues to leave a wake of rave reviews and accolades from users across multiple industries. But this is also good for the planet, since Xerox iGen digital presses produce far less waste than traditional offset printing solutions. If technology continues at this pace, it won’t be long before lithography goes the way of the printing press as the world embraces thoroughly digital printing solutions.
