Xerox Donates Color 800 to Cal Poly
Xerox has donated a Color 800 digital press to Cal Poly’s Graphic Communication Department, in San Luis Obispo, Calif. The 80-page-per-minute press, with a Xerox EX Print Server, Powered by Fiery, includes a variety of finishing options, such as stacking, trimming, punching and booklet making. It also features a fifth dry ink station, which allows Cal Poly to use Xerox Clear Dry Ink to add new dimensions to output using spot, flood or textured effects.
“It is great to have this level of technology on our production floor. The quality is spectacular, and the students find the workflow to be simple yet powerful,” said Ken Macro, chair of the Graphic Communication Department. “The students are highly engaged in designing output using the Xerox Clear Dry Ink technology and hope to further explore variable data printing projects using the machine.”
The Color 800 is being used to produce output for student design projects, publishing endeavors, papers and displays in the Graphic Communication Department.
“Students will be exposed to the latest technologies and workflows, giving them practical hands-on experience that will make them more employable and sought after by graphic communication companies throughout the U.S. and beyond,” remarked Gina Testa, Xerox vice president of marketing in the U.S. graphic communications industry.
