Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to provide print service providers (PSPs) with innovative technology to address their ever evolving needs, Canon Middle East launched a new colour production cutsheet press, the imagePRESS C800 Series.
Comprising two models – the 70ppm imagePRESS C700 and the 80ppm imagePRESS C800 – the new series incorporates both innovative technology and enhanced proven technology from the flagship Canon imagePRESS C7011VP(S) to deliver advanced levels of print quality, productivity and versatility in both commercial and in-house print environments.
Thanks to its innovative design, it offers the versatility to create extensive and innovative applications across a wide range of media, including heavyweight coated stocks and envelopes, and can flexibly handle everything from short runs to complex variable data printing for personalised print communications.
The print quality of the imagePRESS C800 Series is exceptional due to the following new and improved technologies:
Canon’s newly developed Consistently Vivid (CV) toner, which delivers higher quality print at speeds of up to 80 ppm and offers an improved transfer efficiency for enhanced colour consistency and accuracy across a wide variety of media, including embossed and rough paper surfaces for custom and premium applications.
Compact Registration Technology (CRT) ensures that every single image is placed in the same location every time on every sheet for the highest quality results, whether printing one sheet or thousands.
Achieving high production speeds of up to 80 impressions per minute on a wide range of media thanks to its Advanced Twin Belt Fusing unit, the imagePRESS C800 Series can run at maximum speed on heavy stock up to 220gsm without sacrificing print quality The imagePRESS C800 Series can produce duplex print jobs on heavy weight media up to 300 gsm with highly accurate front to back registration, enabling PSPs to handle more demanding jobs without manual intervention or any impact on print room productivity.
Advanced feeding technology, in the form of a new multi-drawer paper deck with three new technologies, prevents misfeeds even of coated stock. Blowing air at different speeds, depending on the type and weight of paper, together with a new separation control system and new materials in the unit, virtually eliminates paper jams and, by maximising the availability of the machine, significantly increases a print room’s efficiency and productivity.
Commenting on the launch of the new imagePRESS C800 Series, Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Director, Canon Middle East said: “By bringing to market the new imagePRESS C800 Series, we are expanding the line-up of our colour press portfolio and addressing the need for a production press that delivers exceptional quality, performance, and application flexibility for customers who don’t have the necessary volumes for the existing imagePRESS C7011 Series.
Verbrugghe continued: “The imagePRESS C800 Series features powerful and innovative technologies that offer the highest quality, productivity and reliability, together with flexible finishing options, to meet the requirements of in-house and commercial print environments. We’re confident that the combination of the imagePRESS brand name and the outstanding capabilities of the new series will make it a very attractive proposition for the market.”
