    Webster’s Xerox plant will soon produce a new kind of toner
    Xerox Corp. is making a major addition to the toner plant it opened in 2007 at its Webster campus.Construction crews on Monday were busy hauling six 25,000-gallon tanks into place for production of Ultra Low-Melt EA toner.The 100,000-square-foot EA toner plant — the company’s first sizable addition to the 1,100-acre campus in more than 20 years — uses chemical processes to “grow” toner from its ingredients into individual toner particles.That contrasts with the decades-old method of making toner by grinding plastic composites into fine particles.Ultra Low-Melt is an EA toner product that melts and fuses onto paper at temperatures as much as 45 degrees lower than Xerox’s standard EA toner, resulting in devices using 15 percent to 30 percent less power.Ultra Low-Melt toner is made of a blend of plastics that combine with colored pigments and wax particles.

    Xerox has one product on the market, the 700 Digital Color Press, which runs on the next-generation toner. The newly installed tanks will allow the Webster plant to turn out Ultra Low-Melt alongside regular EA products.Ultra Low-Melt was developed by Xerox researchers in Canada in collaboration with Fuji Xerox Co., the Tokyo-based joint venture between Xerox and Fuji Photo Film Co. Xerox had been purchasing the toner from Fuji Xerox but is doing the addition so it can produce its own, Xerox spokesman Bill McKee said.The addition is to be operational next year.
