Innovative New Print Process
The Xerox® CiPress® 500 and Xerox® CiPress® 325 Production Inkjet Systems’ print
process is robust yet simple. Built on a heavy-duty web press transport, it offers precise
motion controls with closed loop monitoring for automated missing jet detection,
correction and registration. The print process uses precise web motion and thermal
controls with a patented “reflex” process for web management, monitoring and
correction of paper stretch and movement. This ensures very accurate pixel-to-pixel,
color-to-color registration and drop placement, job to job, roll to roll, month after month

Intelligent print heads deliver on
the productivity promise

Piezo mechanical drop-on-demand technology gives you reliability, durability,
consistent density and uniformity of color output for every roll, every week. With over
one million made and installed to date, these modular print heads are long lasting
with less maintenance, delivering more real print time every shift

At 39,000 drops per second, ink is dispensed at very high speeds with web throughput
at either 500 feet (152 meters) or 325 feet (100 meters) per minute. The four color
CMYK system has 56 print heads, and all 50,000 jets are managed individually and
controlled for accurate pixel placement on the page. Our jets are tunable, which means
software and process controls can manage the waveform, behavior and performance
of each piezo crystal that drives each jet. Every jet is tuned and calibrated to be uniform
and consistent for accurate drop size and placement. This unique tuning also extends
print head life by adjusting weak or excessive jetting to the right normalized level

Taken together, these factors deliver highly predictable image quality and very reliable,
consistent output roll to roll, site to site, across all substrates, month to month
