Much of the output of the Xerox iGen3 output is destined for some kind of post-press process, whether the piece is a folded, stapled brochure describing an exciting new product, or a mailing that is expected to arrive intact at its destination...

As with traditional litho-printed pieces, coating and laminating are excellent ways to improve the durability of Xerox iGen3 output for end uses such as direct mail, transport, or heavy usage... Choosing between coating and laminating is a tradeoff between cost and the requirements of the piece... In general, laminating is ~10 times the cost of coating, but provides much stronger protection...

The paper type does affect coating performance... Coated, glossy stocks at weights above 140 gsm typically provided the best results... iGen3 output sheets of basis weight 115 to 120 gsm have been UV coated... Note that book cover applications will require creasing at the folds after coating to minimize cracking of the paper and the image...

For off-line coating only This is commonly used in coating lithographic prints... It works well on a wider range of stock, but with a more noticeable wavy pattern than 1635 above... This waviness can be minimized by reducing thickness and with longer leveling time...

It is recommended that the laminating film type used be Nylon due to its reliability with Xerographic output... These 1... 7 mil Nylon based films have been used successfully with Xerox iGen3 output: for iGen3

The production of saddle-stitched, folded, and possibly trimmed booklets is an important job type for the Xerox iGen3 and the feature set makes it easy to do... Job programming at the front end enables the automatic imposition of pages into signatures with just a few keystrokes using pre-built templates... The system can deliver fully collated sets ready to be finished into booklets to the stacker... This finishing option is best suited to low page count publications...

Both booklet makers listed below are fronted by the DSF-2000 Document Sheet Feeder which can feed pre-collated output from a digital printer to the booklet maker... If needed, a pre-printed color cover can be added to the set at a rate of up to 150 sheets per minute... Set up is automatic and simply requires the operator to load paper and select the desired finishing... The use of OMR (optical mark recognition) technology or bar codes further enhances the process automation...

Maintaining the ambient relative humidity between 45-55% with paper freshly unwrapped or conditioned for least 24 hours at this RH level...

Be sure that the book block compiler stops are properly set and that the jogging of the book block gives a uniform result... The Operator should inspect the body sheet registration in the book block... The book block should be registered well, like a brick... If some sheets are not seated well in the spine area, they will not be bound well... This can happen more readily with coated stocks, with the correction being to reset the tamper guides in the input station, but may also require an adjustment to the jogger that if not listed in the user manual, would require Bourg Rep... assistance...

Adjust bookmaker back and side pressure to attain a uniform ~ 1mm thick adhesive bead along spine and wrapping around the spine by ~ 2-3 mm with no nail-heading of the cover... If the adhesive layer thickness is concave (thinner at center vs... edges), then the bottom clamp force setting should be increased in single steps until uniform... This should be a repeat of manufacturers recommendations...

exposed to intense radiation that simulates about four years of typical office environment exposure or around 2 weeks in a south-facing window... Cyan, yellow, and black dry inks are extremely stable and exhibit barely perceptively shifts in color... The magenta dry ink changes somewhat more, with a moderate loss of saturation... This compares favorably with lithographic inks, where magenta, cyan, and black are relatively stable, while yellow fades almost completely away in similar tests...

Customers may wish to use Xerox iGen3 pieces for direct mail campaigns... Typical post office equipment includes friction feed mechanisms that may stress the iGen3 output... Uncoated stocks will perform better than coated stocks... Knowledgeable design and / or coating/laminating of the piece can improve results...
