SERIES OF ENGINEERING PRODUCTS COMBINES APERTURE CARD PRINTING, ENGINEERING COPYING AND OFFICE COPYING

 ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- A series of engineering reprographics products combining high-speed, high-volume, plain-paper aperture card printing, large-format copying and office copying capabilities was announced today by Xerox Engineering Systems.
 The announcement of the Xerox 2000 Series represents the most significant entry by Xerox Engineering Systems into the aperture card printer market to date. The series is made up of three products: the 2003 and 2002, which feature aperture card printing and high-volume engineering copying functions, and the 2001, which functions as a large- format engineering copier. At a rate of 80 A-size (8-1/2- by 11-inch) copies per minute, all three units also act as high-speed office copiers.
 "Xerox Engineering Systems is very excited about this new entry into the aperture card printer market with such a strong series of products," said Mark Maltese, vice president and general manger, Systems Reprographics Business Team, Xerox Engineering Systems. "All three products are superior for engineering reprographics departments looking to save space while increasing productivity. Combining a high-volume aperture card printer with a high-volume engineering copier, plus a modern, high-speed office copier for support documentation, creates one very powerful and productive package."
 As an aperture card printer, the Xerox 2003 outputs 20 C-size (17- by 22-inch), 20 B-size (11- by 17-inch) and 40 A-size prints per minute. Using zoom-lens technology, print sizes can range from 7.2 to 16.5X the microfilmed image. The unit features a 250-card capacity feeder and produces up to 99 prints per card. As an engineering copier, the 2003 accepts input up to E-size (36- by 48-inch) and produces output at 20 C- size, 60 B-size and 80 A-size copies per minute. The unit has variable reduction from 100 percent to 45 percent for D- (24- by 36-inch) and E- size input and a 50 to 200 percent reduction/enlargement ratio for A- through C-size input.
 The 2002 also is a combination aperture card printer/engineering copier that accepts hard copy up through C-size. It performs at the same speeds and possesses the same features as the 2003.
 The 2001 is a high-speed engineering copier that accepts input up to E-size and outputs at rates of 20 C-size, 60 B-size and 80 A-size copies per minute. The 2001 features a highlight color capability that enables users to emphasize key information on A- and B-size output. Entire images on C-size documents can be output in color with the 2001. Variable reduction ratios on the unit are from 100 percent to 45 percent for D- and E-size input and a 50 to 200 percent reduction/enlargement ratio for A- through C-size copies.
 Standard productivity features on each unit include flat sorters with 20-bin/50-sheet-per-bin capacity. An additional 20-bin sorter is optional. A folder will be available as an option in the near future. Two-sided copying -- because of the savings in paper and time -- is another productivity feature that is standard on each unit's office copying function. This capability for both A- and B-size documents in important for producing technical documentation that ordinarily would have to be reproduced at the office copier. A user interface monitor (CRT display) that guides users step by step through even the most complex jobs also is found on all three models.
 Document reduction presets for large-document input are standard on the 2003 and 2001, eliminating the tedious step of determining the correct reduction percentages. Presets are E to C size; D to C size; D to B size; 30 by 42 inch to C size and 18 by 24 inch to 17 by 22 inch. An override feature allows users to vary the reduction in one-percent increments between 100 and 45 percent to achieve an even more precise fit.
 The aperture card printer on the 2003 and 2002 can read the keypunched code on each card to determine the size of the original drawing, set the correct magnification, calculate the proper exposure and then select the appropriate paper size for each copy -- all automatically.
 Each unit has five media compartments: three located in the front and two on the side. Two of the front compartments hold up to 550 A- or B-size sheets of media each; the third holds up to 1,100 sheets. The two trays located on the side can handle B- and C-size media at levels of 1,000 sheets per tray. Combined, the five trays have a 4,000-sheet capacity.
 The 2000 Series will be sold through the Xerox Engineering Systems direct sales force. National order-taking begins June 1 with deliveries scheduled for July. Prices begin at $116,000 for the 2001, $121,000 for the 2002 and $146,000 for the 2003.
 The 2000 Series is covered under the Xerox Total Satisfaction Guarantee. Under the guarantee, customers decide for themselves whether the product is performing to their satisfaction. If they are not satisfied, Xerox will replace the product with an identical model or machine with comparable features and capabilities -- up to three years from the date of delivery.
 Xerox Engineering Systems is the world's largest supplier of engineering copiers, wide-format printers and fax machines, raster plotters, and engineering document management systems.
