Article Id: x_digicpyprt_en-O4143 | Published: 08/29/2016

Product support for
  • Xerox Nuvera® 200/288 MX
  • Xerox Nuvera® 288/314 Presses
  • Xerox Nuvera® 120/144/157 Presses

NOTE: The term 'Inboard / Outboard' refers to the area from the back of the printer (Inboard) to the front (Outboard).

Supported Paper:

The Nuvera will accept a wide variety of paper types and sizes. For best results, use only the papers mentioned.

Size Ranges:

Short edge feed (SEF): 140 mm (5.5 inches) to 470 mm (18.5 inches) to long edge feed (LEF): 203 mm (8 inches) to 320 mm (12.6 inches).

Weight Ranges:

56 g/m² to 250 g/m²*

* The upper limit weight range that your Nuvera can handle is dependent on which Finisher is installed.

NOTE: The overall capability of the Nuvera depends on the Finisher with the lowest limitation.  For example, if the Nuvera is equipped with an MFF, the maximum weight is 220 g/m2, and coated stock is not supported. If equipped with a BFM Plus, FTM, and DS5000, the Nuvera weight range for coated stock is 120 - 220 g/m2.

Recommendations for paper usage:

CAUTION: Do not use envelopes with latex-based glue closures. For example, self sealing envelopes contain latex-based glues, and should never be used.

When using Transparencies in dedicated trays, first place approximately (12 mm) .5 inch of plain paper at the bottom of the tray. This will make it possible for all 50 of the Transparencies to be used.

Paper TypeUsage Recommendation
Booklet Envelope
  • Recommended sizes: 152 x 229 mm (6 x 9 inch), 229 x 305 mm (9 x 12 inch)
  • Type: Closed flap and flap on long edge.
  • Loading orientation: Address side up and flap leading
  • Output to MFF top tray only
  • Loading capacity limit - 60
  • Output to top tray limit - 15**
    **More than 15 envelopes can be output to the tray, as long as the tray is tended and emptied every 10-15 envelopes.
Catalog Envelope
  • Recommended sizes: 152 x 229 mm (6 x 9 inch), 179 x 254 mm (7 x 10 inch)
  • Type: Closed flap and flap oriented towards operator.
  • Loading orientation: Address side up and flap to lead edge (loaded left when facing the tray)
  • Output to MFF top tray only
  • Loading capacity limit - 60
Preprinted materials
  • Design the preprinted image so that no ink, varnish, or aqueous coating is placed in the area to be printed. Toner adhesion cannot be assured when printing over inks or varnish. If the image must be printed over preprinted ink, results are more likely to be acceptable if the color is screened back to less than 30%, or the base stock is uncoated paper
  • Select papers printed with laser-compatible, lithographic inks to minimize offsetting. UV-cured inks are recommended, especially on coated stocks, to insure complete drying before printing on a Xerox Nuvera. Laser inks can be oxidative, or heat set types.
  • Do not use papers preprinted with xerographic processes.
  • Select preprinted sheets that are free of excessive curl.
  • Select base paper stock approved for use the Nuvera. Refer to the Nuvera Production Paper Guide for more Information.
Transparency or Mylar reinforced sheetsLoading limit in Paper Feeder trays: 50 sheets.
Paper-backed TransparencyLoaded with side to be imaged facing up, and glued end to the left.
Removable Stripe TransparencyLoad the removable stripe face-down in the tray with the stripe on the trail edge (to the right) in the tray.
Mixed size sheet handling in Document Handler and MFFRequires the same Inboard / Outboard dimension for all sheets.
Window stockNot recommended.
Coated stocksA Nuvera configured with an MFF will not support coated stocks.
CarbonlessThere is a higher service call rate expected due to a contamination build up on the paper path rolls, which will ultimately cause skew and jams. The rolls are cleanable. Running carbonless paper may require additional cleaning time by the CSE during service of the machine. This time will vary based on the percentage of carbonless stock run versus non-carbonless stock run. In the 100% carbonless usage case, service time will be about 60 additional minutes per service call at 150,000 prints. Depending on contamination variation levels from one carbonless stock to another, running non-Xerox brand carbonless stock may require additional service time by the CSE. Only simplex printing is supported on the stock type.
