Bytes Document Solutions, authorised Xerox distributor to 27 sub-Saharan countries, has introduced the Xerox 6279 Wide Format Printer, a black-and-white digital printer, copier and scanner which features sharp image quality, speed, a compact footprint and low running costs.
Large and complex engineering and architectural renderings, electrical diagrams and mechanical drawings require precise detail.
“The system is flexible enough to fit in a variety of environments, including commercial print shops and architectural, engineering and construction companies,” says Alewyn van Staden, wide format product manager in the Xerox division at Bytes Document Solutions.
“Its speed – printing seven or nine "D-size" prints per minute – makes it one of the most productive products in its class.” D-size translates to 24 x 36 inches.
"We know that image quality is the number one concern of wide-format users, with operating costs running a close second,” adds Van Staden.
“The image quality and speed of the Xerox 6279 meet those requirements and it is so affordable that users can take advantage of the 6279 system where it best fits their needs, whether it's in a construction manager's on-site trailer, a home office of an architectural firm or on the production floor of a neighbourhood print shop. It offers reliability that they can count on."
The Xerox 6279 can simultaneously scan up to six inches per second with its optional on-board scanner while printing. The 600 x 600 dpi printing and scanning capabilities deliver sharp, precise details even for complex plans, schematics and renderings. The system holds up to four rolls of bond paper, tracing paper or film for uninterrupted printing and media flexibility.
The optional on-board scanner or Wide Format Scan System allows reproduction of worn originals to be improved by suppressing the background, which may be damaged by wrinkles or water, and saving the important fine line details of text and images.
Users can select a wide range of configuration options, including printer-only or copier/printer models. The copier/printer offers black-and-white scanning that is upgradeable to colour. The scanner supports a wide range of file formats and allows users to scan to a mailbox, to FTP or to a remote printer.
The 24-bit colour TotalAccxes scanning option enables colour workflows and lets users scan to create a colour file, or scan and print to a networked colour printer. These colour and scanning options can be installed on-site, so the system can grow with a user's business as additional capabilities are needed.
