Xerox iGen and Nuvera digital presses have produced billions of pages for in-plants over the past two decades. But this summer, the company that brought us xerography and fueled the rise of digital printing will stop making its iGen5 and Nuvera digital presses.

Print engine manufacturing will cease on 30 June, according to an article in Printweek, though the Webster, New York, plant will continue to make Xerox toner and photoreceptors.

‚ÄúOrder fulfillment for iGen and Nuvera is expected to continue through 2024 or while inventory lasts,‚ÄĚ Xerox noted in a press release. ‚ÄúXerox will provide industry-leading support for these platforms throughout the life of their contracts.‚ÄĚ

The move will not affect Xerox inkjet presses.

‚ÄúXerox will continue taking and fulfilling orders and providing life-of-contract support for the cut sheet Xerox¬†BaltoroHF Inkjet Press as we evaluate strategic options for our high-speed inkjet technology,‚ÄĚ says the release. Printweek quotes Xerox president and COO John Bruno discussing ‚Äúan agreement with a third-party provider of high-speed continuous feed inkjet machines to offer their family of inkjet presses.‚ÄĚ Read the Printweek story here.
