India has launched four technology platforms in color — laser, LED,

solid ink, and inkjet giving customers a wide choice of printing

solutions to improve efficiency, enhance productivity, and reduce the

overall TCO. As part of this, the company has introduced four color

printers and production equipment. These include Xerox WorkCentre

7120 Multifunction System, Xerox ColorQube 9201/9202/9203

Multifunction Systems, Xerox 7142 and Xerox 8364E Color Wide Format

Printers. The launch also includes Xerox's patented solid ink

technology platform. Solid ink is a color printing technology that

uses solid sticks or blocks of no-mess, non-toxic ink instead of

toner or inkjet cartridges. href="">Andrew
