Top-Level Productivity and Versatility with Endless Possibilities - Versatility & Productivity


Maximum Speed at 80 ppm*1, Fast Printing even for Long Paper and Mixed Jobs

The high-performance print engine achieves excellent productivity of 80 ppm*1. Image quality adjustment is also optimised during changing of paper and there is no downtime when printing mixed jobs*2 of coated and uncoated paper. High utilisation rate is achieved. The new Air Suction Feeder also prints long paper of 330 x 1200 mm at 12 ppm. Long paper printing is 2 times*3 faster (in-house comparison).

  • *1: For Versant 180i Press. 70 ppm for Versant 170i Press. 52 to 220 gsm, A4.
  • *2: When same paper size and speed priority mode is selected.

Performance Package

With the Performance Package, maintain top speeds on 400 gsm media, and gain colour confidence with an inline spectrophotometer and Automated Color Quality Suite (ACQS) to confidently and efficiently produce stable and accurate colour on every job.


Maximisation of Printer Productivity with GX Print Server 2 / GX-i Print Server 2

Print server processes high capacity jobs rapidly at high resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi, 10 bit. It handles variable printing and other high capacity jobs effortlessly and fully maximises the high productivity of the printer.


“Middle Data Format” Suppresses Capacity and Processes Jobs at High Speed
Text and images are automatically determined and managed in object units. High image quality jobs of large data capacity are processed at high speed while retaining image quality and suppressing the capacity.


High-Speed Processing Achieved through the “RIP Accelerator Board” Hardware
High-speed tuning is achieved at the hardware level, thus enabling the printer to perform at a faster speed than the physical specification of the server.

  • Note: Standard equipment.


“High-Speed Serial Transfer Technology” from Print Server to Printer
Data processed at the print server is transmitted to the printer at 4.25 Gbps/channel* broadband. Errors are automatically detected and corrected, and high reliability is assured.

  • *: 2 channels used in 1 colour.

New Proprietary Technology Enables Continuous Feed Sheet by Sheet for Various Paper Types

The newly developed Air Suction Feeder uses an air suction method to handle paper. With our proprietary shuttle head shape and mechanism that draws up the paper strongly using a small amount of air, it easily separates and delivers various paper types sheet by sheet efficiently. This mechanism improves feed performance for paper types where traditional feed methods cause stress, such as paper with a lot of paper dust, pre-printed paper for offset printing using powder, paper with uneven texture, and coated paper that is prone to sticking. Stable and high-speed feed is achieved for various paper types, from lightweight to heavyweight, small-sized paper and long paper. The Air Suction Feeder*1 also supports continuous printing of long paper. It can load 100 sheets*2 of 330 x 1200 mm long paper and 800 sheets*2 of 330 x 864 mm long paper.

  • *1: Air Suction Feeder C1-DSXL, Chained Air Suction Feeder C1-DSXL-L
  • *2: 90 gsm paper.



High Image Quality, Automatic Processing Technology, Reliable System Maximising Uptime - Quality & Reliability

Professional 2400 dpi High Quality Resolution

The VCSEL-ROS delivers print resolution of 2400 dpi and the energy-efficient EA-Eco toner* achieves synergistic effect with toner volume control according to the coated or uncoated paper to deliver high image quality similar to offset printing.

  • *: Emulsion Aggregation-Eco Toner.


Clear Printing of Small Texts and Thin Lines

Edge enhancement:
Jaggy, which tends to occur on midtone texts and lines, is suppressed by screen processing on contours, reproducing crisp texts and lines.

Adjust Invert Text/Line Weight:
In these processes, the press mitigates crushing of white texts and fattening of black texts when the texts are small. Several levels of toner amount are available for selection for applying to the contour, so that you can set a desirable balance for better readability of texts.


Versant 180i Press

1200 x 1200 dpi x 10-bit RIP Rendering

RIP resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi and lossless compression reproduces vibrant colours without compromising the quality of the original image. 10 bit processing delivers smooth gradation.


Auto Correction of Photos According to the Shooting Condition and Purpose

NIE* is used to automatically correct the contrast and colour balance of images taken with digital cameras if they appear dark, undersaturated, and colour is unbalanced. A wide variety of images can be corrected, such as colour-fogged photos taken under fluorescent lights, photos to show freshness, and photos to emphasise high definition.

  • *: Natural Image Enhancement

  • *2: Only with i1® Pro 3


Selectable Screens According to the Object

Various screens are available for selection according to the object such as text or photo. Use our proprietary FM screen when moire patterns appear. The FM screen minimises graininess with appropriate dotdeployment according to the characteristics of xerography and renders smooth image quality.


Versant 180i Press

SIQA* Saves Time with Streamlined Adjustment

By scanning special charts, SIQA will automatically calibrate the adjustment values suitable for image-to-media alignment, density uniformity adjustment and image transfer adjustment. With SIQA, operators no longer have to go through the time-consuming and iterative procedure of having to print, measure and manually adjust individual settings. This increases machine utilisation rate and improves document image quality.

  • *: Simple Image Quality Adjustment.


Easy Error Confirmation with Visual Log Display

The print server is equipped with a timeline function that displays job and printer status and history in chronological order. User job logs can also be easily checked on the screen, allowing for swift action when errors occur.
