Fuji Xerox introduces Colour 1000i Press which is the industry’s first xerographic production press to offer both metallic Gold and Silver Dry Inks. It will be available in the Asia Pacific region including China. It is aim at high end professional printing market.
The new Gold and Silver Dry Inks are developed by applying Fuji Xerox Emulsion Aggregation (EA) technology. Originally, the ellipsoid-shaped inks, with flat reflective pigments were completely covered by toner particles. By orientating the reflective pigment particles in parallel to the print media, it allows the reflective pigments to reflect light after the image is fused onto the media, thereby achieving a metallic appearance. In addition, the reflective pigments do not allow light to pass through, and enabling metallic printing on various media. With these new Dry Inks, what has been conventionally achieved using offset print can now be delivered through a single production printer, which improves workflows for print companies and thus contribute to the expansion of business with increase printing applications with the God and Silver Dry Inks.
