Xerox rolls out fast, affordable colour printer, versatile multifunction systems
Phaser(R) 7400 delivers colour pages one-third faster than rivals; new
black-and-white systems delivers high quality, performance
TORONTO, Oct. 05 – Xerox Canada today unveiled four additions to
its growing office line, including a network printer that runs 33 per cent
faster than the closest comparable competitors. At a starting price of $3,799,
the Xerox Phaser(R) 7400 is the fastest desktop colour printer in its class.
It equips small and medium-sized businesses to turn out high-quality
spreadsheets, brochures, presentations, and other business-critical documents
at up to 36 colour or 40 black-and-white pages per minute.
In addition, Xerox has launched a family of three black-and-white office
multifunction, printing and copying products featuring exceptional print
quality. The most advanced is the Xerox WorkCentre(R) Pro 133, an up to 33-ppm
multifunction system that combines printing, copying, scanning, faxing and
e-mailing in one easy-to-use system.
The offerings are the latest in a series of 40 Xerox office printers and
multifunction products announced this year. Virtually all of Xerox’s office
product line has been refreshed within the past two years.
“Productivity and value spell success for small and medium-sized
businesses, and that’s what these hard-working Xerox products deliver,” said
Tim Williams, president, Xerox Office Group. “They perform better than the
competition, while being easy to use, reliable and versatile. These attributes
help customers stay focused on their business and work smarter.”
The Xerox CopyCentre, WorkCentre, and WorkCentre Pro 133 systems use
Xerox’s patented emulsion aggregation (EA) toner, which was invented at the
Xerox Research Centre of Canada in Mississauga, Ontario. EA Toner standardizes
the size and shape of toner particles so prints and copies have sharper image
quality and fine line text. It also uses an environmentally friendly
manufacturing process that consumes an estimated 25 per cent less energy than
traditional toner, and it avoids the use of organic solvents commonly required
to make particles in the nanometre-or-less size range.
Xerox Phaser 7400
Like other Xerox Phaser products, the Phaser 7400 delivers industry-
leading printing speeds, vivid colour, and reliable operation. The Phaser 7400
supports not only letter-size paper but also media sizes up to 12″ x 18″ and
heavier media weights up to 270 gsm so that people can print spreadsheets,
brochures, presentations, and collaterals on a variety of paper sizes and
types. Finishing features that were not previously available in the Phaser
printer line – including booklet making, saddle stitching, stapling, and hole
punching for up to 1,000 sheets – are optional.
The Phaser 7400′s combination of low price and high performance helps
customers increase productivity, control costs, and print the materials they
need to conduct business in-house and on-demand.
Customer replaceable consumables are now top-loading so that people can
replace toner cartridges, imaging units, and other consumables without pulling
the printer away from the wall or turning the printer to access the
consumables. Network connectivity is a standard feature on all configurations
of the Phaser 7400.
Xerox CopyCentre/WorkCentre/WorkCentre Pro 133
The up to 33-ppm black-and-white family includes a multifunction system,
digital copier, and digital copier/printer. For customers who want to
consolidate stand-alone equipment, the WorkCentre Pro 133 monochrome MFP
offers best-in-class media support from 16 lb. to 110 lb. and print quality up
to 1200 x 1200 dpi. These multifunction systems can handle multiple jobs at
the same time, allowing an office worker to scan a document while a print job
is running. With a 20GB hard drive, Adobe Postscript 3, and the ability to
handle paper as heavy as 110 lb. index, these systems have the power to print
complex office documents quickly.
The CopyCentre(R) 133 stand-alone digital copier starts at an estimated
retail price of $7,258; the WorkCentre(R) 133 copier/printer offers copying
and printing with optional fax and starts at $8,997; and the WorkCentre Pro
133 advanced multifunction system starts at $10,208. These products further
expand Xerox’s line of multifunction systems available through resellers and
