    A. Supplies This appendix provides information and specifications for the media you use with your Xerox DocuPrint 96, 4635, or 180 printer. Instructions for ordering supplies are also provided. Consumable supplies (those that are depleted during operation of the system), such as paper, dry ink, developer, fuser agent, etc., must be ordered for your printer.
  • Page 134 Use a good quality, xerographic-grade paper. For best results, weight and grade: use paper that is 20-pound or 80 gsm (grams per square meter) bond, xerographic grade. Xerox 4024 Dual Purpose Paper provides optimal performance in the printer. Refer to the consumable supplies table later in this appendix.
  • Page 135: Paper Width And Printer Performance

    The width of the paper you use for your print job is directly related to the rate at which the 96, 4635, and 180 printer can print a job. The rate at which a job prints is the throughput speed and is measured in pages per minute (ppm).
  • Page 136 Supplies The printer operates in different pitch modes. The pitch mode the printer uses for a specific print job is based on the paper size on which that job is printed. The following tables list the pitch mode boundary values, paper widths, and related printing speeds supported on the 96/4635/180 printer.
  • Page 137 Using small paper sizes in 8-pitch mode: Printing in 8-pitch mode provides the highest throughput speed available—up to 154 ppm for the 4635 printer and up to 206 ppm for the 180 printer. (The 96 printer does not support 8-pitch mode.) However, you should keep the following in mind when you...
  • Page 138 Supplies NOTE: The 96/4635/180 printer can support 14 by 17-inch / 356 by 432 mm, 20 pound or 80 gsm paper stock in 3-pitch mode. However, printing performance is not guaranteed for all types of paper of this size. Heavy (110-pound / 200 gsm) and light (16- pound / 60 gsm) large papers can cause jams throughout the system and are not recommended.

  • Page 143 The length of time you should condition your paper depends on the amount of paper and the difference between the storage and operating temperatures. Use the following chart to determine the length of time needed to condition stacked cartons of paper. NOTE: The numbers in the top two rows indicate the temperature difference between the storage area and the operating environment, not actual room temperatures.
