    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.
