Product Overview

Xerox ColorQube 8580N in More Detail

The Xerox Colorqube family focusses on providing exceptionally powerful colour production in a highly productive and environmentally friendly package.

More Colour, For Less

Xerox's unique solid Ink colour sticks give vibrant, rich colour on a range of media from labels, envelopes and card-stock, to business cards and recycled paper.

Solid Ink has less packaging, is easily stored and produces up to 90% less waste than traditional laser printer consumables.

PANTONE support and Xerox colour correction technology ensure colour re-production is accurate and easily achievable.

Exceptional detail is afforded by the 2400 FinePoint print engine for precise and pinpoint accuracy on every print.

Powerful Performance

Print performance is kept at break-neck speeds thanks to a powerful 1GHz processor and 1 Gigabyte of RAM producing colour prints at up to 51 pages per minute

There's no waiting around either with a first-page out time of just 5 seconds.

An ethernet port for office network connectivity is included as standard so you can share the powerful performance with the whole office.

Grows with Your Business

A 525 sheet paper tray is included as standard and paper capacity can easily be expanded up to 2,200 sheets with the purchase of additional trays as your business needs expand.

Additional memory is also available to enable a variety of time-saving options via a choice of 2 productivity kits.

*Pages printed on Solid ink Printers cannot be laminated

    Got the printer of my dreams. Thank you very much for your really quick delivery. Will recommend your company and shop again. Many thanks

  • PETER KNIGHT 22 May 2017 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Wow! what a printer

    Firstly the customer service was excellent. Printer arrived next day. I needed the printer quick to complete my work for University. Printerland phoned me to check that I bought a printer fit for purpose and that I purchased sufficient ink and equipment to do the job I wanted. This printer XEROX 8580 SOLID INK produces first class photographic prints. I use 3D design software to model components that have incredible detail and texture. This printer is so fast once warmed up and produces prints equal in quality to large high-end format printers I have used that cost thousands of pounds more. 200 full-colour enhanced prints including CAD drawings. Approx 5-10 min. Solid ink printers are a whole new world, especially for designers. Thank you Printerland.

  • Ben McDonald 17 January 2017 4.25 / 5 Value 5 Features 4 Quality 4 Performance 4 Great printer good colour options

    This printer has taken a little bit of time to get used to but we are now finding it to be reliable and give good quality output for colour graphics. The feature that eventually sold it to us was the ability to customise the colour output in high detail. It is a bit precious about being left on - you have to leave it on to keep the solid ink warm - and it takes 30 minutes to switch it off if you need to move it! The solid ink is a neat solution so there is no need to chuck plastic cartridges in landfill. Overall a good quality reliable machine that does print quickly once it's warmed up! We've named ours 'Finley'.

    Speedy delivery and great customer service

  • Martin Aust 20 January 2016 4.75 / 5 Value 4 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Excellent printer - fantastic for photos

    Purchaseed to replace my 8570. I specifically require photo-quality work that will withstand moisture. Inkjets are not suitable and laser printers cannot produce photo-quality. The solid ink technology is brilliant for both requirements and this printer is better even than the 8570 in that respect!

    Very happy with everything, from order to product.

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the above information is correct at the time of publication, Printerland will not be held responsible for the content of any third-party software suggested on this site and usage of any such software is at the users own risk.

    Xerox PagePack
    A cost-per-page you can count on.

    In today's economy, everyone is looking for ways to cut costs.
    For most companies the ongoing cost of office printing – cost-per-print, routine maintenance and service – is an unexplored opportunity for significant, cumulative savings. PagePack will improve productivity and your company's printing costs.

    How does PagePack improve your print environment?

    A fixed cost-per-page. In an unmanaged environment, every document printed uses a variable amount of ink or toner. You pay a different price for every print and the costs are unknown. Service calls are unpredictable and so are the charges. With PagePack all your variable expenses are consolidated. You pay a fixed cost-per-page that reduces overall expenditures.

    Increase productivity. PagePack also saves on hidden costs, such as staff resources and prevents shortages of consumables,by simplifying ordering and vendor management. With PagePack there's no need to keep an inventory of consumables on hand.You can order them online 24/7.

    Free Remote Services. With PagePack Remote Services Platform you get real-time visibility of your Xerox networked devices; Meter Assistant® automates the process of collecting and submitting meter reads for accurate billing, so you pay for what you actually use.

    Low Cost Colour - Hybrid Colour Plan

    Now with Hybrid Printing plans you can print all the brilliant colour you need whilst keeping in full control of your costs.

    If you print a lot of colour, then the Xerox Hybrid Colour Billing plan could be for you, significantly reducing your print costs by up to 50%. This billing plan is based on the actual amount of colour used - when you use less colour, you pay less, rather than the one price for a colour page that most people are used to.

    We use our technology to deliver these savings to you. Solid ink printers create images by printing tiny pixel dots of black and colour ink on the page. The devices automatically count the number of colour pixels used to produce each printed page, and tally individual pages on three separate meters - Useful (spot colour), Everyday (medium colour coverage) and Expressive (heavy colour pages). So you only pay for the actual amount of colour you print.

    call us on 0800 840 1992 to find out how much you could save
