The InfoPrint® 5000 Multi-Purpose Platform (MP), a key member of the InfoPrint 5000 continuous form, inkjet printer family, offers color, monochrome and MICR capability in a very compact footprint. The InfoPrint 5000 provides transactional printers, commercial printers, book printers and direct mailers with investment protection through platform interoperability, operating flexibility and ongoing product enhancements that are available to all InfoPrint 5000 customers. You can configure platforms and models with each other to run diverse applications and optimize productivity.
The InfoPrint 5000 platforms are built with the same highly reliable core technology but address different application and volume requirements. All are designed to conserve energy, produce superb quality, maximize productivity, offer an array of ink/fluid choices, and work with multiple datastreams.
The MP models are fully compliant with Interchange Set/3 (IS/3) standards. This means that in multivendor environments, IS/3-compliant applications generated by Advanced Function Presentation™ (AFP™) datastreams are printed correctly.
IS/3 standards cover process and spot colors, International Color Consortium-based color management, industry-standard image formats and more.
InfoPrint 5000 Highlights
- Tailor your solution with full-color, monochrome and MICR configurations
- Raise the quality of images and grayscales with enhanced halftones on certain monochrome models
- Produce superb print quality from unique imaging technology that dynamically jets variable drop sizes for each pixel on each page
- Reduce environmental impact with low power consumption, a small footprint and simplified operations
- Utilize an ink management suite for print job estimates and monitoring
- Achieve high throughput using diverse papers
- Choose a configuration for today’s requirements with the flexibility to adapt in the future—certain MP models support U configuration, in addition to I and L configurations
Transition to inkjet with confidence
The InfoPrint 5000 MP color, MP monochrome and MP MICR models are designed to help you transition smoothly to inkjet technology. The MP models, which offer the lowest power consumption in the market and a very small footprint, are exceptionally versatile. For example, you can run monochrome applications now while you develop color applications for future use. When you’re ready, you can convert to full color on-site. Select the speeds and fluids that suit your needs now, and change them as requirements evolve.
The built-in AFP architecture, which is designed for high-speed printing, can provide accurate, consistent, device-independent output with page-level error recovery for MICR, monochrome and color output and a variety of applications.
Pair platforms for greater flexibility
While MP models can be configured as a high-speed duplex mono or entry-level duplex color system, you can also pair MP models with InfoPrint 5000 General Production Platform (GP) models to meet particular output needs.
One configuration pairs an on-demand MP MICR with a GP color in Adobe® PDF/PostScript® environments, using a new feature for specified color support. Another configuration provides on demand MICR for monochrome applications in the AFP environment, by pairing a new GP model using black and MICR inks with an MP mono in a compact footprint that delivers very high throughput.
Another configuration combines two GP color engines and a third engine, such as the InfoPrint 5000 MP MICR. This space-optimizing U configuration features face-to-face displays to maximize operator convenience.
Produce outstanding halftones
Images and grayscales in complex jobs, like books, can pose a quality challenge, especially when light tints are involved. Enhanced halftones on the MP MD3/MD4 monochrome models improve halftone quality while the printer is running at top speed.
