Xerox Versant 3100

A versatile and highly automated four-colour dry toner production press.
What does it do?
Xerox’s Versant 3100 Press is a dry toner 100ppm (A4) digital production printer and the latest addition to the Versant family. It fits in between the entry-level, lower-volume 80ppm Versant 180 presses and the higher-volume, five-colour capable 100ppm Color800i/1000i presses in the Xerox range.
The 3100 replaces the earlier 100ppm 2100 model and offers greater versatility and “time-saving automation,” to help run more short-run jobs per shift. Xerox stresses the long-sheet capability and choice of inline finishing options.
