I am a small work from home print shop running a Xerox 550. I have been looking at finishing options and may be able to obtain a LFN-7 finishing unit. Will this work with my 550?
Thank-you for any replies
Thank you for using the Support Forum. I am not aware of the machine being compatible with any third party finishers. Please take a look at the finisher specifications. If this does not help or you have additional questions please consider contacting your support centre for further assistance.
It should work fine as it is a D-series finisher.
I have documentation saying the Serial numbers should be starting with
XVE = PROF FIN W/2/3 HOLE PUNCH, STPLR, BKLT MAKER
XVG = ADVANCED FINISHER W/2/3 HOLE PUNCH
YBF = BOOKLET MAKER FINISHER
YBH = STANDARD FINISHER
But that being said, I ahve 2 560's and they have finshers with serial numbers starting with
MGA (Has c-z fold)
So probably the finishers in the D-series are all identical hardware and have a different interface cable that can be converted.
So, what you need to do is consult the owner/seller and find out the serial number of the finisher (first 3 digits at least)
Report back with those 3 digits and I will see if I can get you a confirmation that it can be used, and if there is somethiong else needed, I can tell you before you step into an investment.
Thanks for info, i've now decided to go another route to add some finishing to my setup (also finding the right interface module jgw-1 would be difficult) but appreciate your reply.
