Xerox Launches New Magnetic Printer Ink Business Machines
Xerox has announced the launch of a pair of new printers aimed at enabling businesses to carry out print jobs on-site.
The new machines, namely the Nuvera 200 and the Nuvera 288 MX, both employ magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) technology.
This can be used to print checks, forms and coupons which can then be scanned at all points along a supply chain.
The two devices are capable of printing at 200 and 288 images per minute with a 4800 x 600 dpi resolution, thereby allowing business users to achieve professional results at a fraction of the cost of outsourcing the work to a third party.
Riley McNulty, research manager for IDC production and large format printing services, said: "Last year, Xerox led the worldwide high-end black-and-white market with more than 70 per cent of all production-class cut-sheet shipments, and is well positioned to sustain a leadership position by continuing to enhance its Nuvera portfolio."
Meanwhile, Bloomberg has reported that Xerox is seeking approval from the US Food and Drug Administration to print food packaging, with this area of its operations also likely to make use of MICR-enabled printer ink cartridges.
