    Hi Guys

    Just wondering if anyone has a Xerox Versant 80, we are thinking of upgrading from a 560, and want to know if anyone has run into any problems.

    That's a steep upgrade.. They are nice presses but it may be more than you need. Do you run a lot of heavy paper? The one distinct advantage it the belt fuser, it wont curl thicker paper like a 560 or a 700 would.

    Its also the click price which will be half the price, we run a lot of heavy stock and paper, we do around 30k click a month, Im guessing you have one, have you had any problems with it?

    Xerox Versant 80 is a very nice machine. However, if you are upgrading, you can look for some AIO printers that come today with myriads features.

    We have a 560 and are looking at a Versant 80 as well... we run mostly thick label stock (think adhesive vinyl and such). We usually have to run the vinyl stock through bypass: it jams in all other drawers including the oversize feeder. Even then, we can't run anything bigger than letter size.

    Think a Versant 80 might be good in our case? Could we maybe even run tabloid sized vinyl sheets? Two sided?

    We use 2 Versant 80's, they are great machines, quick and reliable. We've had them almost 2 years and I've not had a single problem that wasn't sorted in a day.

    Hello, I have a Versant 80 and threw me a fault code 044-383 and I'm wondering if you have access to a more detailed
    database to pinpoint the error source, rather than the "generic your machine experienced an engine failure, I'm trying to
    see if it is something I can fix, thanks
    I understand that consulting is a paid service,

    for synthetics perhaps consider Canon's 910 line of light production equipment (formerly the 850 series) - the low melting point toner and twin belt fusing system work wonders with synthetics.

    I've seen shops who love their V80's and wouldn't part with them. On the other hand, as dealer Production specialist i've replaced quite a few these units with time on the lease to spare.
    Which leads me to believe the device must be a fit for your environment. Very much Like the Oce/Canon Vario line. It must fit the work you do.

    Hi Like Versant 80, but the new 180 is much better. I have been looking to upgrade to 180 from 80 since it has a better tolerance on the front and back imaging.
