FCS Laser Mail invests over £500,000 in cutting edge printing technology

FCS Laser Mail has invested in an iGen4 Diamond edition, the latest advancement in the iGen family from Xerox. The printer is in addition to other colour Xerox equipment including an iGen3, DocuColor 8002, DocuColor 8080, 6 Nuvera’s, as well as four Ricoh high speed continuous printers.

This new investment puts FCS a cut above the rest in terms of digital printing technology. The new press is capable of producing significant volumes at high speed with enhanced colour quality. It can also print on a larger sheet size of over 660mm (26”) in width, which often results in efficiencies in cost per A4 image for their clients.

Steve Beeching, Director at FCS said, “The iGen4 is by far the most reliable printer we have ever purchased. It produces 110 A4 pages per minute, which isn’t a huge difference in speed to the 8000 series, but it just doesn’t stop.  Maintenance is relatively simple, our operators are XPP trained (Xerox Productivity Plus), which means the kit rarely goes down.”

Steve Beeching added, “Insurance and pension firms have shifted from sending out bland loose-leaf documents and moved to personalised, full-colour digitally printed booklets. In tandem with our booklet makers, the iGen4 helps us respond to this increasing demand, and enables FCS to produce high quality booklets with variable information, which in turn helps our clients to increase their ROI.

FCS has recently invested in new finishing kit and document composition software too and has taken the total investment so far to around £500,000. FCS are also looking to invest in new mailing enclosing lines, which will take the total spend up to £750,000.
