Xerox 700 VERY Slow booklet ouput

Hoping someone can help me here. I am printing 750 booklets and the output per book is between 1min 11sec-1 min 14sec (Truth, I just timed it twice!) This is absurd.

 

20 Text is coming from Tray 6, 90lb Pre-printed covers are coming from tray 5 as "Blank Cover".

The holdup is when it pulls the covers but why? Anyway to speed this up??

 

Thank you is advance for any help!

Watsons,

 

I have seen this in the field and have not yet had time to research this. I will see if I can get an answer from Xerox to find out what the delay is. If you would like - you should also be able to call your Suport center for additional help.

 

Thank you,
Jordan

Re: Xerox 700 VERY Slow booklet ouput

Watsons,

 

I will summarize a response from Xerox I received.

 

When you select a heavier type stock for a cover and have the machine pull it from the bypass or another tray the machine has to slow down and reprogram to run the media reliability. He did mention a tip that it may be more productive to run the covers separately and insert them into the job using the top insertion tray on the booklet maker finisher.

 

Hope that clears up why it takes longer to print when using covers.

 

Thank you,
Jordan

I would just tell the machine that your 20 lb bond is the same weight as your cover or vice versa, then it doesn't slow down at all.

Re: Xerox 700 VERY Slow booklet ouput

This has been the only thing that has worked. Preprinted covers on 90lb index insert into Tray 5 (no insert tray on this model), tell the machine it is the same text weight as inside pages, booklets are flying out now. Thank you.

Re: Xerox 700 VERY Slow booklet ouput

Our technician told us that it's slow because different weights of paper have different heat settings within the printer, so it's slow because the printer is actually heating and cooling its interior between covers/content.  Maddening.  But like previous posters have said, you can either lie and say both types of paper are the same weight, or pre-print the covers first and then tell it to just insert the cover.  If you're going to just insert the cover it's better to use a tray drawer rather than one of the bypass trays--I'm not sure why but using bypass trays 5 or 8 seem to slow it down.

Re: Xerox 700 VERY Slow booklet ouput

This is exactly the answer. The fuser needs to change temperature so it slows down between any 2 media weights/types. It doesn't only do it with booklets, and it is not specific to the 700. Lying works, but it does noticably shorten the life of the fuser if large runs are done as the heavier paper actual causes physical damage to the fuser roller. So we cannot recommend this workflow for extended jobs.

Re: Xerox 700 VERY Slow booklet ouput

We have a similar problem with speed

I have the covers set for the same as the document and is being inserted from tray 8 on the finisher

it prints the pages then stops and waits before inserting the cover then will not do anything else until the booklet comes out of the trimmer

our c75 and v80 (running the same job, same finishers and settings) doesn't wait for one booklet to be done before starting the next one

Re: Xerox 700 VERY Slow booklet ouput

Tray 8 is a different issue, there is no fuser, the difference in speed is because the booklet has to physical stop to add the cover from tray 8. It is much less pronounced in the newer generations (C75 and V80) but there is still a pause between them. Even without a cover or different stocks there has to be a pause because the folder takes longer than the time it would take for the pages to come out without it for obvious reasons, so booklet 2 would hit book 1 if they didn't have the pause.

If you don't mind the click charge, insert the cover from tray 5 instead and it will eliminate the pause
