Xerox Launches Solid Ink Printers
Two new desktop solid colour ink printers have this week been released by Xerox. The firm said its ColorQube 8570 is designed for small and medium-sized businesses with general office print needs, while the Xerox ColorQube 8870 is designed for businesses of any size with high-volume office print needs.
Solid ink printers offer consumers high quality at a low cost and help reduce waste, the company said. Both devices have print speeds of up to 40 pages per minute (both in black and white and colour), making them ideal for office use.
The 8870 comes with a Hybrid Colour pricing plan that enables customers to pay only for the amount of colour they use on a given page. "Like the award-winning Xerox ColorQube 9200 Series multifunction system that Xerox introduced last year, the ColorQube 8570 and ColorQube 8870 use Xerox's proprietary solid ink technology to lower the environmental impact of office printing," Malcolm Glynn, marketing manager for Xerox UK, said.
This month, a group of Xerox wide format printers won a string of awards from the Business Equipment Research & Test Laboratories (BERTL), an independent device testing group.
