Product/Feature Overview

The new Infoprint 4100 family of printers is designed for digital publishing and statements and features a wider form and print width, and offer significant improvements in print quality and operator useability.

Wide Format

The page width of these printing systems is significantly wider than the previous printers. With a maximum page width of 19.5 inches (495.3 mm), and a maximum print width of 19.0 inches (482.6 mm).

New Page and Print Width

The Infoprint 4100 Printing Systems have a page and print width capable of producing true 3-up 6x9 and 3-up A5 books. Having a 19.5 inch (495.3 mm) page width and a 19.0 inch (482.6 mm) print width (with pinless) this publishing system can produce true 3-up 6x9 and 3-up A5 books while still supporting your trim requirements.

The maximum print width is 19.0 inches (482 mm) with pinless, and 18.5 inches (469 mm) with pin-feed.

Print Speed

The Infoprint 4100 has continuous forms throughput speeds up to:

  • 762 Impressions-per minute (Duplex 2-up, 8.5"x11", side-by-side)
  • 718 Impressions-per minute (Duplex 2-up, A4, side-by-side)
  • 1400 Impressions-per minute (Duplex 3-up, 6" x 9", side-by-side)
  • 1522 Impressions-per minute (Duplex 3-up, A5, side-by-side) side-by-side)
  • 381 Impressions-per minute (Simplex 2-up, 8.5"x11", side-by-side)
  • 359 Impressions-per minute (Simplex 2-up, A4, side-by-side)
  • 700 Impressions-per minute (Simplex 3-up, 6" x 9" side-by-side)
  • 761 Impressions-per minute (Simplex 3-up, A5, side-by-side)

Save Pages

Save Pages is standard on the Models HD1/HD2 and PD1/PD2. and is used while printing in POD mode. POD mode requires an Infoprint Manager Server and in POD mode pages are spooled to DASD for later printing.

Advantages of POD mode with Save Pages include:

  • Normally, back-hitching and blank pages are eliminated since rasterized pages are spooled to DASD and later printed
  • Multiple copies of the same pages can be printed without re-RIPing the pages

Simplex Printing

The two simplex printers in the Infoprint 4100 family are the Models HS1 and PS1.

These printers attach to a host system through the control unit, which controls the printer.

Duplex Printing

4100 Duplex systems consist of two printers (either the HD1 with the HD2, or the PD1 with the PD2) that work together to print on both sides of the media.

Duplex printing is achieved by arranging the two printers in series, separated by a Buffer/Flipper Unit, so that the continuous forms exiting from the first printer go through a Buffer/Flipper Unit that turns the forms over (inverts them) before threading them through the second printer. The first printer in the paper path prints one side of a form; the second printer in the paper path prints the other side of the form. The Infoprint 4100 duplex systems (HD1/HD2 and PD1/PD2) can be used in the following ways:

  • Duplex: Uses two printers (Printer 1 prints on one side of the form and Printer 2 prints on the other side of the form)
  • Simplex: Uses both printers as in duplex operation, but prints only with one printer; forms pass through the other printer
  • Dual Simplex: Uses both printers separately in simplex mode; each printer is independent of the other and can print different jobs at the same time The control unit housed in the second printer controls both printers.

When running duplex printing applications, both printers in the configuration are operating at the same impressions per minute (IPM) speed. The total speed or IPM of the subsystem is then twice the IPM of an individual printer, counting both the front and back sides of the forms.

Both printers in the configuration attach to a host system through the same control unit, which controls both printers simultaneously and is physically attached to Printer 2 in the configuration.

Up to three preprocessing/postprocessing devices may be connected to Printer 1(Model HD1 or PD1), while Printer 2 (Model HD2 or PD2) may have two devices connected.

Streamlined Imposition Workflow

The Infoprint 4100 in POD mode, together with Infoprint Manager for AIX, supports an automated and streamlined imposition workflow with significant performance improvements over presently available solutions. Highlights are:

  • Industry standard Impositioning interface allows use of various 3rd-party impositioning products
  • Industry standard OPI (Output Prepress Interface) server allows interchange between high and low-resolution versions of a given image, thus ensuring consistency between displayed and printed images.
  • Ripped pages and high resolution images are downloaded to printer cache before printing starts so that printing is normally at rated speed.
  • Page images are only sent to the printer when changed - image adjustment, orientation change, and printer mark (e.g. crop mark, folding mark) changes do not require job resubmission.
  • The printer can be pre-loaded with page images of several jobs to optimize production printing.

Enhanced Operator Control

The Infoprint 4100 Advanced Function Printing Systems are equipped with a user-friendly operator interface and graphic user interface (GUI).

The operator panel hardware consists of a flat-panel touch-screen console with a keyboard and mouse. The large flat-panel display provides clear and easily recognizable commands and functions. The keyboard and mouse expand the operators interface alternatives.

The GUI provides simple and standard buttons and functions for all capabilities. Special emphasis has been placed on reducing the number of menus and number of clicks that an operator must go through in order to perform a task.

The GUI and the new Infoprint Operations Architecture is the basis for future improvements in operator help and printer management functions.

Operator Control Feature

The Operator Control feature is a standard feature that allows operators to automate the control of the critical basic parameters of the printer through the use of the IBM exclusive Infoprint Operations Architecture. Infoprint Operations Architecture is integral to the Advanced Function Control Unit (AFCCU). Infoprint Operator Control allows operators to store the critical printer parameters through the Infoprint Operations Architecture at the printer and then invoke them when the operator assigns a specific Form Definition on the printer. The critical process parameters that are currently automated include:

  • Contrast Values of C1 (lightest) to C7 (darkest)
  • Preheat Platen Temperature
  • Hot Roll Temperature
  • Hot Roll Oil Rate
  • Backup Idler Roll Engage/Disengage
  • Oil Belt Speed

Printing Color Jobs on the Infoprint 4100

Grayscale printing is a standard feature on all Infoprint 4100 Printers, and enables the simulation of color printing by using different tones (shades) of gray to represent different colors. Using this capability, the Infoprint 4100 can print Advanced Function Printing (AFP) full color text (PTOCA), full color business graphics (GOCA), single color backgrounds for AFP objects, and single color AFP images (IOCA FS10 and IM image) in grayscale without modification.

Full color AFP images (IOCA FS45) must currently be converted to black and white halftones before printing on the 4100. This can be accomplished easily with Infoprint Manager using the provided img2afp utility.

Customer Changeable Developer(CCD)

This new solution allows customer operators to easily remove and install developer units.

Additional Customer Changeable Developers (#4480)

This feature provides an additional developer unit that can be installed by an operator to replace the developer unit initially shipped with an Infoprint 4100 printer. Each Additional CCD is unique to one printer. For example, to have additional CCDs for three printers requires that this feature be ordered for each of the three printers.

The Additional CCD feature consists of an operator-installable developer and one developer cart to carry the CCD provided by this feature. When this feature is ordered, it may be necessary to order a Developer Cart (FN 4404). This extra Developer Cart is needed once per print room to remove and store the CCD initially installed in the printer.

These features can be ordered with either a new IBM Infoprint 4100 printer, or installed in the field.

Developer Cart (#4404)

In addition to the Developer Cart shipped with the Additional CCD feature, (FN 4480, 4481), one additional Developer Cart is required per print room for the removal of the CCD that was initially installed in the printer.

The developer carts are used so that the developer unit does not have to be lifted or carried by the operator. The cart attaches to the printer so that the developer unit can slide onto the cart when it is being switched. Likewise, the new developer unit can be easily slid off the cart and installed in the printer.

Developer carts can be used with any developer. Once a CCD has been installed in a printer, the cart that was shipped with the CCD can be used to remove a CCD from another printer. Developer units are unique to a given printer.

Enhanced Toner Loading

This feature allows the operator to add toner to the printer while it is operating. The operator is prompted by an operator console message that the toner supply is low.

Supplies

The Infoprint 4100 printers utilize two customer purchased supplies, toner and developer mix.

  • Infoprint 4100 Enhanced Printing Toner
  • Infoprint 4100 Enhanced Printing Developer Mix

The Infoprint 4100 printers utilize two supplies provided under Maintenance Agreement. These are fuser oil, and the fine filter.

Duty Cycle

The Infoprint 4100 printers have the following printing capacities for duplex (PD1/PD2 or HD1/HD2) and Simplex (HS1 or PS1) printing systems. The following table shows the capacity in impressions per month for different size impressions.

Performance Enhancement (#4442, #4443)

This optional feature provides an enhanced Control Unit (AFCCU) processor and additional memory to provide improved performance for processing complex pages. It is only used in POD mode with the Save Pages capability.

This feature is rectd colspa nommended on Infoprint 4100 printers that will be used to print books with a large number of images.

Forms Identification

The Forms Identification feature ensures that the form required for a specific application, or print job, is actually the form loaded in the selected printer.

The Forms Identification feature reads a preprinted bar code as the form is moving through the printer to ensure that the correct form is loaded.

In a duplex system, if only printing duplex print jobs, only one feature is necessary and it must be ordered and installed in print engine 1. If the duplex system is also being used in the dual-simplex mode, and form identification is required, then two features, one feature for print engine 1 and one feature for print engine 2, must be ordered and installed.

The value of the Forms Identification feature is in increased operations performance and quality, reduced operations costs, and improved operations control.

The feature's hardware consists of a bar code reader, associated electronics, mounting brackets, cabling, and microcode, which can be ordered for any Infoprint 4100 Model.

Information describing the bar code, its position, and orientation is available in the latest Form Design Reference. Also, IBM Professional Services can be contracted to produce the required artworks for you and your forms vendor, as well as assist you in FORMDEF updates. The Application Solutions Group (IBM Professional Services) can be contacted by calling 303-924-6700, or through: www.ibm.com/printers

Signature Page

This optional feature extends the maximum form length to 54 inches.

Forms lengths up to 54" in 1/6 inch increments are supported.

This feature is only on the duplex printing systems, and includes a forms buffer assembly that may require an additional 1 to 3 feet of floor space. Whether or not additional floor space is required will depend on the current distance between engines, the printer system configuration, and which tower is being used.

Performance Enhancement (#4442, #4443) is a prerequisite for the Signature Page feature.

Productivity Tracking Feature(#4565)

The Productivity Tracking feature is designed to enhance the information available to customers on the operation of IBM Infoprint 4000 and Infoprint 4100 printers. Information can be available by printer, by operator, or by job.

This feature enables the printer so that it can send production data to a LAN-attached Windows Server. The Windows Server must have the Infoprint Productivity Suite Program Product (5639-AA8), with the Productivity Tracking Feature, installed so that it can receive production data sent by the printer control unit.

The printer sends operational data to the server so that a database of operational data can be built. Infoprint Productivity Suite uses the DB2 Universal Database Express Edition V8.1 (included with Infoprint Productivity Suite) to store the data from the printers in the operations database, which can be accessed by customer-specific applications.

Sample report templates are included with the Infoprint Productivity Suite. These templates can be used by clients with Microsoft Excel 2002 and Microsoft Excel 2003 to provide the basic tools needed to organize, analyze, and display the operational data.

The sample graphs can be selected based on time frame, operator, printer, and shifts, and will include graphs such as:

  • Percentage of time printing
  • Estimated click count
  • Estimated toner changes
  • Error frequency
  • Estimated printed foot count per job

These templates can also be used by the customer to design customized graphs.

Specific and customized reports and analysis software is the responsibility of the customer. IBM PSD Professional Services can provide this capability along with installation support.

The Productivity Tracking hardware feature (#4565) must be ordered for each Infoprint 4000 or Infoprint 4100 printer control unit that is to send data to the production database. The supported printers include:

  • Infoprint 4000 Models IS1, IS2, ID2, ID4, and ID6
  • Infoprint 4100 Models HS1, HS2, PS1, PD2, HD2, and HD4
This feature is not supported by PSF/VM or PSF/VSE and cannot be used with these host systems.

The Infoprint 4100 family of printers are designed for digital publishing and statements and feature a wider form and print width, and offer significant improvements in print quality and operator useability. The Infoprint 4100 PS1 and PD1/PD2 are premium quality high-speed simplex and duplex printing systems intended for applications that demand excellent greyscale image, graphics, and text printing. Models HS1 and HD1/HD2 are high quality simplex and duplex printing systems for applications requiring overall high quality printing

The Infoprint 4100 publishing system provides the capability and flexibility to print 600 dpi datastreams at throughput speeds up to 1,522 IPM with duplex ISO A5 and 3-up side-by-side printing.

When printing portrait 2-up, the throughput speeds are up tp 762 IPM for duplex 8.5" x 11", and 718 IPM for 2-up ISO duplex ISO A4.

Devices Supported

Two varieties of pre-and post-processing devices can be attached to the Infoprint 4100 Printing Systems. The first group of pre- and post-processing devices require an interface that essentially passes basic communication and electrical signals from the printer controller and pre- and post-processing device. Examples of such devices are roll-paper feeders on the input side and cutters or stackers on the output side of the printers. The interface referenced in this case is feature 4710. The Infoprint 4100 Printing Systems include enhancements to alert the AFCCU to paper jams in devices connected through the 4710 interface, allowing the printer and the host to manage recovery for the entire paper path, including the post-processing device. This is an IBM exclusive.

The second group of devices referenced requires more "intelligent" communication between the AFCCU and the post-processing equipment. Included in this group are MICR check printers (order RPQ 8A8083 for MICR font support), selective color imprinters (the Infoprint Hi-Lite Color is NOT supported), all-points-addressable post-processing printers, etc. These devices require the "Advanced Function Post-processing Interface, feature number 4720, which provides 2-way intelligent communication between the device and the AFCCU. Inherent in this communication is the capability for recovery management from end to end of the paper path to the output side of the post-processor.

Note:One 4710 feature comes standard on each engine of the Infoprint 4100 Printing Systems.

Paper Types

The Infoprint 4100 printing system can print on roll-feed paper. One of the key factors in achieving optimum print quality is the quality of the paper used.

Certain applications may cause excessive wear or premature failure of some components of the Infoprint 4100. In these situations, a customer with maintenance provided under the IBM Customer Agreement of IBM Machines may be liable for increased maintenance charges.

Print Quality Enhancement

The Infoprint 4100 printing systems also have IBM's exclusive Print Quality Enhancement (PQE) that consists of edge smoothing, fine fidelity protection, and boldness control.

Edge smoothing is the reduction of the "stair-stepping" appearance of diagonal lines. Edge smoothing is accomplished in a way similar to the Infoprint 4000 printers.

Fine fidelity protection preserves the fine details in the print, and consists primarily of avoiding the fill-in of single-pel white areas to be developed. This is the greatest benefit in the reproduction of font serifs and the preservation of the details of narrow intersections of lines.

The boldness control allows control is independent of the settings of machine parameters. Therefore, parameters can be adjusted to compensate for other changing conditions within a printer without affecting the boldness. This allows for bolder-looking print without using extra toner and for darker solid areas without filling in the fine white details.

Print contrast control allows the operator to adjust print darkness. Achieving optimum print quality is dependent upon paper quality.

Paper Handling

  • Input Continuous Forms:

    The Infoprint 4100 publishing system may require roll-feed continuous forms.

    The pre/post processing feature (or the Advanced post processing) feature provides for the attachment for high-capacity, roll-feed devices that allow full utilization of the high-productivity capabilities of the IBM Infoprint 4100 family. Roll-feed input devices enable continuous printing for several hours between paper loading.

    Note:One Pre/Post Processing feature is standard on Infoprint 4100 Models. Additional features can be added.

  • Continuous Forms Output:

    While one internal paper stacker is included with an Infoprint 4100, Printing System, additional post-processing devices for stacking, or otherwise handling the printed output may be required.

    Output stackers, and other post-processing equipment, may be attached via pre/post-processing interfaces.

Buffer/Flipper Unit

A buffer/flipper unit is used to guide the paper from the first printer to the second printer in a dual-printer configuration. The unit is shipped with the HD1 or PD1 printers, and allows the forms to take the following paths from the first printer to the second.

  • Straight through path (inline) with a paper inversion to allow the second printer to print on the opposite side from the first printer.
  • Left 90 degrees with paper inversion

Pre/Post-Processing Interface (#4710)

One Pre/Post processing interface is standard on each Model of the Infoprint 4100 Printing System.

This feature provides the electrical interface for attachment of OEM pre-and post-processing equipment to the IBM Infoprint 4100. This is the same feature that currently exists on the IBM Infoprint 4000 printers.

The Pre/Post Processing interface feature provides control of add-on pre/post-processing devices (such as continuous forms stackers, envelope inserting equipment, roll-feed equipment, and others). Additionally, this feature disables the standard stacker functions.

In the Infoprint 4100 models HS1, PS1, HD1, and PD1 up to two pre/post processing interfaces, #4710 or #4720, (in addition to the standard pre/post processing interface) may be ordered. Since there is a maximum of one Advanced Post/Processing Interface (#4720) per printer, a combination of one #4720 and one #4710 can also be ordered.

In the Infoprint 4100 models HD2 and PD2, one pre/post processing interface (#4710 or #4720) (in addition to the standard pre/post processing interface) may be ordered.

The need for one or more of these features is totally dependent on the post processing equipment used with the printer. Coordination with the selected post-processing vendor is recommended when planning for the appropriate features.

Post-processing equipment is required when printing forms longer than 17 inches (432 mm).

Advanced Funciton Post-Processing Interface (#4720)

This feature provides the electrical interface for attachment of OEM post-processing equipment to the Infoprint 4100. In addition, it provides architected software and communications control of add-on pre/post-processing devices such as printers using nonelectrophotographic technology, MICR impact printers, or selectable color printers. When this feature is to be used to attach the MICR impact printer, order RPQ 8A8083 for the MICR fonts for AFP support.

This feature may co-reside with feature number 4710. One of this feature number may be ordered per Infoprint 4100 Model.

This feature is required for support of the Select Medium Modifications (SMM) command.

IPDS supports a command, Select Medium Modifications (SMM), which selects one or more actions or modifications to be taken or inhibited on the current sheet of physical media (paper) being processed by post-processing equipment. SMM is supported for both production and POD printing environments.

SMM is needed for all 4720 interface commands with the exception of MICR Imprinter printing. SMM support is not available on all PSF platforms. (Refer toData Stream and Object Architectures, IPDS Reference S544-3417).

Note:While the function of this feature number 4720 is similar to that of previous feature numbers 4720, the actual hardware is different. Previous feature numbers #4720 cannot be used with the Infoprint 4100.

Note:Contact the Boulder Technical Marketing Support Center or PRTHELP at BLDVMB for information regarding the use of the Advanced Function Post-processing Interface for any applications other than Troy MICR or Beste Bunch Multiple Selectable Color Imprinter.

Performance Enhancement (#4442 and #4443)

This is an optional feature for the Models HD2 and PD2 that provides additional DASD, RAM and a faster processor for improved performance, especially for books with a large number of images, in POD mode.

Signature Page (#4553, #4554)

This is an optional feature that extends the maximum forms length to 54 inches.

This feature includes a forms buffer assembly that may require an additional 1 to 3 feet of floor space. Whether or not additional floor space is required will depend on the current distance between engines, the printer system configuration, and which tower is being used.

  • Limitations:
    • Not every form up to 54 inches in length is supported by this feature. See above.

Forms Identification (#4464)

The Forms Identification feature ensures that the form required for a specific application, or print job, is actually the form loaded in the selected printer. The value of the Forms Identification feature includes increased operations performance and quality, reduced operations costs, and improved operations control.

The Forms Identification feature reads a preprinted bar code as the form is moving through the printer. The form barcode is checked at two levels.

  • First, it is checked at the host where the form bar code specified in the Define Forms configuration is compared to the form defined by VFYSETUP.
  • Second, the bar code specified in the Define Form configuration is compared to the form number read from the preprinted barcode on the loaded form.

If the forms identification bar code specified in the Define Form configuration does not match the forms identification number specified by the VFYSETUP, then the host will not send the job to the printer. Therefore, the forms identification bar code specified in the Define Form configuration must match the forms identification number read from the loaded form or the printer is stopped with a form mismatch error.

The use of this feature requires that a bar code be preprinted on the forms. The bar code is a custom binary bar code that can represent up to 65,535 decimal form numbers. For those customers who are using alpha-numeric form numbers, some restrictions do apply. The alpha characters are limited to A, B, C, D, E, and F, and the number is limited to 4 characters. When using the alpha characters for specifically assigned purposes, the form number is assumed to be hexadecimal. The translation from form number to bar code, is directly from that 4 character hexadecimal form number to the binary bar code. When using alpha characters in the form number, care must be taken not to duplicate the decimal equivalent form number.

A specification describing the bar code, its position, and orientation is available in the latest Form Design Reference. Also, IBM Professional Services can be contracted to produce the required artworks for you and your forms vendor, as well as assist you in FORMDEF updates. The Application Solutions Group (IBM Professional Services) can be contacted by calling 303-924-6700, or through: www.ibm.com/printers

This feature consists of a bar code reader, associated electronics, mounting brackets, cabling, and microcode, which are ordered and installed on a per-print-engine basis.

In a duplex system, if only printing duplex print jobs, only one feature is necessary and it must be ordered and installed in print engine 1. If the duplex system is also being used in the dual-simplex mode, and forms identification is required, then two features, one feature for print engine 1 and one feature for print engine 2, must be ordered and installed.

  • Limitations: Requires the use of one pre/post processing slot. Each print engine has three pre/post processing attachment card slots. On all Infoprint 4100 engines one slot is used by the standard pre/post processing attachment card. On the second engine of a duplex system an additional slot is used by the standard Side1/Side2 Verification hardware. Therefore, in all cases there exists at least the one slot necessary to install the Forms Identification feature. However, if pre/post processing attachment features (#4710 or #4720) have been installed there may not be an available slot.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Bar Codes

The Infoprint 4100 printing system can be used to print OCR and bar code documents when attached to host environments. The AFCCU supports Bar Code Object Content Architecture (BCOCA) which enables the printing of bar codes without special bar code fonts. The OCR and bar codes produced by the Infoprint 4100 are designed to meet OCR and bar code printing standards. However, because of the variability of OCR readers and bar code scanners, IBM advises that customers evaluate the Infoprint 4100's OCR and bar code output in their application environment. The Infoprint 4100 supports Postal Bar Codes (requires local certification by USPS). Refer to theForms Design Reference for Continuous Forms Printers (G544-3921) for more detailed OCR and bar code information.

The Infoprint 4100 printing system supports the following BCOCA bar code symbologies:

  • Code 39 (3-of-9 Code), AIM USS-39
  • MSI (modified plessey code)
  • UPC/CGPC -- Version A
  • UPC/CGPC -- Version E
  • UPC -- Two-digit Supplemental (Periodicals)
  • UPC -- Five-digit Supplemental (Paperbacks)
  • EAN-8 (includes JAN-short)
  • EAN-13 (includes JAN-standard)
  • Industrial 2-of-5
  • Matrix 2-of-5
  • Interleaved 2-of-5, AIM USS-I 2/5
  • Codabar, 2-of-7, AIM USS-Codabar
  • Code 128, AIM USS-128
  • EAN Two-digit Supplemental
  • EAN Five-digit Supplemental
  • POSTNET
  • Royal Mail Postal Bar Code (RM4SCC)
  • Japan Postal Bar Code

AFCCU Description/Function

The Infoprint 4100 AFCCU contains the control, attachment, and operator interface hardware and microcode. Major hardware components are a RS/6000 processor, Mechanism Interface Card (MIC), and the operator console.

The MIC is attached to the RS/6000 processor via Serial Storage Architecture (SSA) cables, and is used to interface the print engine, operator panel, and pre/post-processing interfaces. The operator console and host attachments are attached directly to the RS/6000 processor.

The operator console consists of an IBM color flat-panel touch-screen display and various input devices including the touch-screen, keyboard and mouse.

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Support

The Infoprint 4100 supports the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Management Information Base (MIB) for printers (RFC 1759). All mandatory Groups in the Printer MIB and required portions on MIB II (RFC 1213) and the Host Resources MIB (RFC 1514) are supported.

SNMP is used by IBM's Infoprint Workflow offerings to monitor printers and provide information on printer status.

Some examples of the printer status and information that can be monitored using SNMP are:

On-line/Off-line, idle/printing, errors (SRCs: such as out of toner, paper jam, output stacker full, out of paper), printer configuration, capacity, and number of pages printed.

Select Medium Modifications (SMM)

IPDS supports a Select Medium Modifications (SMM) command that, in conjunction with the AFCCU and the MIC, selects one or more actions or modifications to be taken or inhibited on the current sheet of physical media (paper) being processed by post-processing equipment. See theData Stream and Object Architectures, IPDS Reference (S544-3417) for details.

The SMM command is used to invoke processing options through the Advanced Function Post-processing Interface feature (#4720).

Page Positioning Function

Basic N-Up Page Positioning

With basic N-up page positioning, you can print up to four pages in partitions on each side of a form which enables you to print much more data on a form, saving printer-usage costs, paper, and storage space. For example with 3-up, three pages can be printed in partitions on the front side and, if duplexing, another three pages can be printed in partitions on the back side.

Enhanced N-Up Page Positioning

With enhanced N-up page positioning, you can place up to eight pages at any location on a form, in any supported orientation and position (partitions are not used and pages can even overlap each other). For example, three pages can be placed on the front side and five pages on the back side; for a more extreme example, all eight pages can be placed on the back side with nothing on the front side.

Cut Sheet Emulation (CSE)

CSE is an option on the printer console that automatically invokes an Enhanced N-up arrangement to emulate 2 side-by-side sheets of cut paper. Duplex jobs print page 2 on the back of page 1 and page 4 on the back of page 3. CSE provides for different page arrangements to accommodate different post-processing requirements. Pages can be placed sequentially from left to right or right to left, and right side up or upside down. CSE requires Print Services Facility (PSF) support. The console option for CSE has no effect unless the printer has PSF that supports CSE.

When the CSE option is enabled, all jobs sent to the printer print 2-up, side-by-side except when:

  • N-up Page Positioning is specified in the form definition. In this case, the N-up specification is used and CSE is ignored.
  • The PSF print driver enables page-size verification and disables CSE for pages that do not fit 2-up.

CSE can now be preset in the Assign Form Definition. Now when a form definition is assigned CSE, and the correct CSE orientation, is automatically set; reducing setup time and eliminating CSE setup error.

Options for Multiple-up Printing

With the addition of CSE, you now have several options for formatting multiple-up application pages on a single printer sheet:

  • Multiple-up defined in the page definition resource
  • N-up defined in the form definition resource
  • CSE selected at the Operator Console

Applications printing simple line data that use the same formatting for each page can easily be handled with traditional multiple-up. They can be handled as well by N-up Page Positioning and CSE if they do not require more than four pages for N-up, or more than two for CSE on printers that support N-up and CSE.

CSE can be used whenever the desired output is two pages of equal size, side by side on the same sheet. CSE is especially useful for moving applications for 8.5-inch x 11-inch forms to 2-up printing 11-inch x 17-inch forms. No change is required to the AFP form definition resource to enable CSE 2-up printing. The same form definition can be used for printing 1-up on 8.5-inch x 11-inch forms or 2-up on 11-inch x 17-inch forms.

N-up Page Positioning is needed for applications that require pages of different sizes or page positioning other than 2-up side by side. Instructions must be placed in the form definition for N-up printing.

Font Capability

The Infoprint 4100 supports outline fonts for both Double-Byte (DBCS) and Single-Byte (SBCS) character sets. Since outline fonts are scalable and resolution independent, the same fonts can be used for printing at any point size and at either 480 dpi or 600 dpi in any of the four supported print rotations. A wide range of outline font type styles in a variety of language families are also available as resident fonts on the printers hard disk. Outline fonts can be downloaded to the printer from PSF libraries.

Raster pattern fonts at 240 dpi and 300 dpi are supported in SBCS and DBCS formats when printing with either 480 dpi or 600 dpi resolution, respectively. However, for best character integrity, raster pattern fonts at 240 dpi are best supported when printing in 480 dpi resolution and 300 dpi raster fonts are best supported when printing in 600 dpi resolution.

Raster fonts must be downloaded from PSF host libraries in the resolution and size required for printing. Font sizes from 4 to 72 points (approximately 1-inch high) are supported. You must verify the legibility of the 4-point font sets in their applications. Only one copy of a font is required for all four font rotations in the printer. The font is oriented for printing at print time.

Raster fonts are supported by all PSF platforms. Printer-resident outline fonts are supported by the latest maintenance levels of all PSFs relevant to the Infoprint 4100. Host-downloaded outline fonts will be supported by all PSF platforms.

Human Factors

The Infoprint 4100 is designed for efficient ease of operation, service, and installation. Accepted human factors principles have been applied specifically to frequent access areas such as automatic paper threading and the operator interfaces. The operator flat-panel touch-screen, redesigned GUI, and associated keyboard and mouse are intended to improve and enhance the human interface with the printing system.

Environment Impact Assessment Information

  • Volatile organic compounds emitted from the Infoprint 4100 pose no health concern either singularly or collectively at various toner coverages tested.
  • The Infoprint 4100's toner and developer mix does not present environmental problems provided the same care is taken with the mix as with other electrophotographic materials of a similar nature.
  • The toner collected in the toner waste bottle and fine filter poses no health and environmental problems, provided the same care is taken with the bottle and the filter as with other similar electrophotographic materials.
  • The selenium carryout with used brushes poses no disposal problems as per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines. The used brushes can be placed in the normal trash to be disposed of in the local landfill.
  • The photoconductor drum data, obtained to date, reveals no concerns to the environment. A drum return plan has been implemented to ensure the used drums are returned to the manufacturer.
  • The dermal and hypersensitivity tests of the toner reveal no health concerns. These studies were conducted utilizing (or implementing) the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) good laboratory practices regulations.

Print-to-Perforation Capability

The Infoprint 4100 is designed to print to the perforation without degrading speed. As with other print-to-perforation printers, print quality degradation will occur near the perforation with fanfold paper that "tents" (that is retains a "memory" of the fold). There will be no degradation at distances from the perforation of 1/3 inch (8.5 mm) for character data, and 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) for solid area fill, logos, or images. With a roll-feed paper input, no change in print quality should be apparent up to 2 mm of the perforation.

Operator Controls

The display and operator input functions of the Infoprint 4100 are provided via a flat-panel touch-screen console. A keyboard and mouse are also provided to assist the operator with input functions. The flat-panel touch-screen, keyboard, and mouse are, the primary interface utilized by both operator and customer engineer.

The new console has been enlarged to provide clearer and more easily recognized commands and functions, including larger buttons, while retaining the touch sensitive feel of today's console. A enhanced graphic user interface (GUI) provides simpler and more standard buttons and functions for all capabilities. Special emphasis has been placed on reducing the number of menu's and number of clicks that an operator must go through in order to perform a task.

Along with the immediate improvements, this new design will allow for a continuing rollout of improved help functions, printer management functions, and future GUI improvements.

Additionally, there is an auxiliary control panel on each engine. This auxiliary panel has STOP, START, NPRO, CHECK RESET, and other controls.

An operator alert facility, that includes a flashing light and an audible alarm with volume control, is located on top of a pedestal that is mounted to the top of the AFCCU or Printer Utility Module (PUM). The AFCCU is attached to the right side of the print engine. The operator alert, mounted flush with the top of the AFCCU, reaches about 8 inches (200 mm) above the top of the AFCCU and overall print engine top. There is also a jack/plug for remote attachment of operator attention equipment (using customer-supplied power).

(#4404) Developer Cart

In addition to the Developer Cart shipped with the Additional CCD feature, (FN 4480) one additional Developer Cart is required per print room for the removal of the CCD that was initially installed in the printer.

The developer carts are used so that the developer unit does not have to be lifted or carried by the operator. The cart attaches to the printer so that the developer unit can slide onto the cart when it is being switched. Likewise, the new developer unit can be easily slid off the cart and installed in the printer.

Developer carts can be used with any developer. Once a CCD has been installed in a printer, the cart that was shipped with the CCD can be used to remove a CCD from another printer. Developer units are unique to a given printer.

  • Minimum Required: One per Print Room when CCD printers are installed
  • Maximum Allowed: Any Number

(#4442, #4443) Performance Enhancement

This is an optional feature for the Models HD2 and PD2 that provides a faster processor and increased memory to improve performance when printing in POD mode with an Infoprint Manager host.

  • Minimum Required: 0
  • Maximum Allowed: 1
  • Co-requisite: None
  • Prerequisite: Model HD2 or PD2
  • Limitations:
    • For best printer throughput performance when printing non-books (statement) production jobs non-POD mode should be selected.
    • Plant Installation: #4442
    • Field Installation: #4443
(#4464) Forms Identification

The Forms Identification Feature ensures that the form required for a specific application, or print job, is actually the form loaded in the selected printer.

The Forms Identification Feature reads a preprinted barcode as the form is moving through the printer. The form barcode is checked at two levels.

  • First, it is checked at the host where the form barcode specified in the Define Forms configuration is compared to the form defined by VFYSETUP.
  • Second, the barcode specified in the Define Form configuration is compared to the form number read from the preprinted barcode on the loaded form.

If the forms identification barcode specified in the Define Form configuration does not match the forms identification number specified by the VFYSETUP, then the host will not send the job to the printer. Therefore, the forms identification barcode specified in the Define Form configuration must match the forms identification number read from the loaded form or the printer is stopped with a form mismatch error.

The use of this feature requires that a barcode be preprinted on the forms. The barcode is a custom binary barcode that can represent up to 65,535 decimal form numbers. For those customers who are using alpha-numeric form numbers, some restrictions do apply. The alpha characters are limited to A, B, C, D, E, and F; and the number is limited to 4 characters. When using the alpha characters for specifically assigned purposes, the form number is assumed to be hexadecimal. The translation from form number to barcode, is directly from that 4 character hexadecimal form number to the binary barcode. When using alpha characters in the form number, care must be taken not to duplicate the decimal equivalent form number.

A specification describing the barcode, its position, and orientation is available in the latest Form Design Reference. Also, IBM Professional Services can be contracted to produce the required artworks for you and your forms vendor, as well as assist you in FORMDEF updates. The Application Solutions Group (IBM Professional Services) can be contacted by calling 303-924-6700, or through: www.ibm.com/printers

In today's high-speed, high-throughput printing environments even a little time lost printing on incorrect forms can generate an awful lot of waste product. In the worst case scenario, especially where form stock is similar in appearance and/or size, a deliverable printed on an incorrect form is actually delivered to the final customer.

The value of the Forms Identification Feature is in increased operations performance and quality, reduced operations costs, and improved operations control.

The feature hardware consists of a barcode reader, associated electronics, mounting brackets, cabling, and microcode, which are ordered and installed on a per-print-engine basis.

In a duplex system, if only printing duplex print jobs, only one feature is necessary. That one feature would be ordered and installed in print engine 1. If the duplex system is also being used in the dual-simplex mode, and forms identification is required, then two features, one feature for print engine 1 and one feature for print engine 2, must be ordered and installed.

  • Maximum Number of Features: 1
  • Minimum Number of Features: 0
  • Prerequisites: Infoprint 4100 printer
  • Corequisites: None
  • Limitations: Requires the use of one pre/post processing slot. Each print engine has three pre/post processing attachment card slots. On all Infoprint 4100 Models, one of these three slots is used by the standard pre/post processing attachment card. On the second engine of a duplex system (Models HD2, PD2) an additional slot is used by the standard Side1/Side2 Verification hardware.

    The total number of FN 4710, 4720, and this feature (#4464) on the Models HS1, PS1, HD1, is limited to two.

    The total number of FN 4710, 4720, and this feature (#4464) the Models HD2, and PD2 is limited to one.

    Therefore, on all Models there exists at least the one slot necessary to install the Forms Identification feature. However, if additional 4710 or 4720 pre/post processing attachment features have been installed there may not be an available slot.

  • Field Installable: Yes
  • Cable order: None
(#4480) Additional Customer Changeable Developers

This feature provides an additional developer unit that can be installed by an operator to replace the developer unit initially shipped with an Infoprint 4100 printer. Each Additional CCD is unique to one printer. For example, to have additional CCDs for three printers requires that this feature be ordered for each of the three printers.

The Additional CCD feature consists of an operator-installable developer and one developer cart to carry the CCD provided by this feature. When this feature is ordered, it may be necessary to order a Developer Cart (FN 4404). This extra Developer Cart is needed once per print room to remove and store the CCD initially installed in the printer.

This feature can be ordered with either a new IBM Infoprint 4100 printer, or installed in the field.

Choosing the right supplies is very important. For optimum print quality and reliable performance, the use of IBM supplies is recommended.
Supplies are purchase-only items. The customer is responsible for ordering and maintaining an adequate stock of supplies. Many Authorized
Supplies Dealers offer supply agreements, and Supply agreements often offer customers price discounts, price protection, established shipping
schedules, and reduced administrative expenses.

It is recommended that customers maintain a one-to two-month stock of supplies on hand.

Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), (OSHA Form 20), for the Infoprint 4100 supplies with the IBM logo are available in the U.S. by calling 800-IBM-4333 (426-4333). You will need to provide the seven-digit part number or the machine type and model number and supply type, for example, Infoprint 4100-HS1. Outside the U.S., contact your local supplies dealer.

Toner Yield:

When printing at a coverage of 8 square inches per foot, at contrast setting 4, the toner yield = 43K feet per 2.72 kg (6.0 lb.) cartridge(2)

Developer Mix Yield:

The developer yield = 1.6M developer feet per 4.0 kg (8.8 lb.) bottle(2). Actual developer yield will vary with toner coverage, machine settings, paper type and size, and environmental conditions. Applications with extensive bar codes or solid area fill can expect to achieve yields lower than that achieved with the average text page.

Note:(2) The approximate average yields are not a warranty or guarantee of minimum life, and are provided to assist in initial supplies planning. Actual usage should be used to establish the supply's life in your applications.
