Xante Corp. has given Cal Poly a Xante Ilumina Digital Production Press for use in the university’s Graphic Communication Department.

Cal Poly selected Xante’s technology to educate students on using digital technology in specialty printing processes related to color business documents such as letterhead, envelopes, and small-format color fliers. The Graphic Communication Department will use the Xanté press to teach students through hands-on learning in a laboratory setting.

“As the graphic communication industry moves to specialty digital printing, it is important that our students acquire a wide range of experience using digital technologies that they will encounter in the industry,” says Harvey Levenson, head of the Graphic Communication Department.

The Ilumina is a complete, high-production digital color system featuring 1,200 x 1,200-dpi color printing, high definition color technology, the iQueue intelligent color workflow, and a fast EFI Fiery processor. The press delivers fast full-color envelopes, sheets and cards and provides full-color printing on a wide variety of media and sheet sizes.

The press complements the Graphic Communication Department’s Degrava DP8500 digital label press, also part of the Xante family of specialty printing technology.
