Press Release: CJ Graphics Inc. First to Acquire Xerox® iGen® 5 Digital Presses
TORONTO – CJ Graphics Inc., one of Canada’s leading-edge graphic arts companies, is taking digital printing to the next level with the first installation, globally, of fully-loaded Xerox® iGen® 5 digital presses.
“The new iGen 5 technology is a game changer, with revolutionary capabilities, including matte toner, extended gamut to achieve up to 93 percent of reproducible PMS colours – with orange, blue, green, white and clear dry ink – and 24-point thick stock kit,” says Jay Mandarino, CEO and President of CJ Graphics Inc. “The iGen 5 is fast, and with the new features you are only limited by your imagination. We’re proud to be the first in the world to have the complete set of features to deliver more value to our clients.”
Mandarino says the new iGen 5 press works at production speed, delivering advantages such as more design flexibility, increased efficiency for faster time-to-market.
“We are now able to produce arresting products, in-house and on-demand, with the many new effects of this digital technology, that traditional presses can’t achieve,” he added.
Today, thousands of iGen presses are creating billions of high-quality, high-margin sales brochures, posters, photo books, packaging and pieces of direct mail – often personalized and always vibrant in color. The Xerox iGen 5 Press is built to serve the changing world of print and aims to help print shops seize market opportunities through automation, integrated print workflows, a fifth color station and the option to swap in White Dry Ink for specialty effects. These features provide commercial printers with the power to meet demand and grow quickly.
In addition, CJ Graphics Inc. has also acquired an Epic coater CTi-635 in-line coating system equipped with a C.P. Bourg BSFE-x Sheet Feeder. This new technology will allow for spot and overall Aqueous and UV coatings.
