XMPie Receives 2018 Intertech Technology Award
The awards – managed by the largest graphic arts trade association, Printing Industries of America (PIA) – recognise technologies that are transforming the graphic communications space.
NORWALK, Conn. – XMPie’s Circle PersonalEffect® Edition are each a recipient of the print industry’s prestigious InterTech™ Technology Awards.
Jim Workman, vice president, Centre for Technology and Research, PIA said, “We look for devices and software solutions that are truly innovative and are likely to open new opportunities for printing companies.”
Iridesse brings an expanded set of metallic colours and special embellishments that make print products shine and cut through the clutter.
Circle gives customers technology to transform their businesses into successful omnichannel communications providers.
“For our customers, Iridesse and XMPie technology are powerful business tools to take printed applications and marketing campaigns to the next level,” said Andrew Copley, president, Graphic Communications Solutions, Xerox. “With continued demand for print embellishments and automated end-to-end omnichannel marketing solutions, our technology will keep our customers ahead of the competition.”
Iridesse is the only digital six station press that combines four-colour printing with two specialty gold, silver or clear dry inks in a single printing pass. The press creates vibrant CMYK, rich metallic colours and iridescent special effects.
“The judges considered the ability to print CMYK plus multiple metallic dry inks in one pass, at full press speeds and in extra sharp resolution, to be truly innovative,” said Workman. “They noted that producing special effects on the press is further enhanced by the ability to quickly swap inks to different positions.”
