Xerox opens plant for colour inkjet cartridges

A new plant has been opened by office equipment manufacturer Xerox which aims to help fill the demand for colour printer cartridges.

The latest generation of solid ink, which was first used in Xerox’s Phaser 8860 and Phaser 8860MFP colour office machines, will be produced at the new automated ink manufacturing plant, which takes up 10,000 sq ft of space on the firm’s Portland, Oregon campus.

According to the office supplies company, the technologically-advanced ink means that colour printing is as affordable as that which is done by black-and-white inkjet cartridges.

The crayon-like ink sticks were developed over five years and are aimed at reducing both the price and waste that is produced by using printer cartridges in office equipment.

"Xerox has redefined color printing with the advancements we’ve made in solid ink," commented Jim Rise, vice president and general manager of the Solid Ink Business Unit at Xerox.

"We’ve taken it to a level where solid ink is the affordable, easy to use color printer for businesses of any sort and size."

He added that Xerox’s success in the field of solid ink production "is really just getting started".

Recently, the company’s office machines were rated among the best on the market in the Annual Colour End-user Survey carried out by Industry Analysts.
