Xerox 8160/8142—the most
productive printer in its class.
High image quality, even at
high print speeds.
The Xerox 8160/8142 Wide Format Color
Printer is engineered to meet the speed
and print volume demands of the production
environment. It’s loaded with features
for increased productivity and flexability.
You needn’t sacrifice image quality at
production speeds. The Xerox 8160/8142’s
printhead contains 640 nozzles that print
up to 1,200-dpi resolution. State-of-the-art
mask technology yields seamless layering
for vivid clarity and reduced banding.
With output speeds of 220 ft2/hr (20.5 m2/hr)
High, 150 ft2/hr (14 m2/hr) Production,
115 ft2/hr (10.7 m2/hr) Fine, 30 ft2/hr
(2.8 m2/hr) Ultrafine, the Xerox 8160/8142
Wide Format Color Printer is up to 2.5 times
faster at Production/photo quality speeds than
the market leaders.
Rapid drying—another
productivity booster.
The Xerox 8160/8142’s rapid evaporation
drying system is based on a dual component
dryer. Along with its output speed, the time
gained through the rapid drying makes the
Xerox 8160/8142 the most productive printer
in its class—up to four times faster at
Productivity/photo quality speeds than
the market leaders.
Non-stop productivity.
From its printhead to its ink supply system,
the Xerox 8160/8142 is a robust design built
to meet the rigorous demands of production
environments. You can count on it for reliable
media feeding and cutting. And to increase
productivity further, the second media roll,
standard on the 8160/8142, can be used as
a feed roll to have a large supply of media at
hand or as a take-up roll for unattended print
runs. Automated ink line filling and the ability
to add ink on the fly mean fewer stops for
maximum productivity.
Use Xerox six-color dye or pigment ink for
true, long-lasting color, both indoors and outdoors. The Xerox 8160/8142 accommodates
a wide media latitude. For the best results,
choose media that’s right for the job from
Xerox’s extensive wide format media portfolio.

total cost of operation.

printing by using the perfectly paired
