Canon launches new digital colour printers
Canon Australia has launched the imagePress C10010VP series, comprising two new digital colour press printer models – imagePress C10010VP and imagePress C9010VP – which it says are designed to drive versatility, high-quality imaging, and productivity for high-volume print.
The new digital colour presses are aimed at commercial print businesses and in-house print rooms looking to boost productivity, while delivering a diverse mix of high-quality printed output.
Ted Matsumoto, general manager – B2B product marketing, Canon Australia says: “The imagePress C10010VP series is a new milestone in the evolution of the digital colour production press, setting new standards in productivity, application diversity and quality.”
The imagePress C9010VP digital press is capable of high productivity print speeds of up to 92ppm, while the imagePress C10010VP is capable of 102ppm on A4 sized sheets.
Canon says this high-performance cut-sheet digital print solution offers automated printing on-demand at a new level, resulting in far less manual intervention and far greater production efficiency. Advanced features include Ultrasonic Multi-Sheet Feed Detection, active front-to-back registration, and Inline Spectrometric Sensor (ILS) for simple colour pre-adjustment on every page.
Canon’s Dual Fixing Unit maintains productivity even when different media of mixed weights and textures are used for the same job. The optional High Capacity Stacker can be unloaded and loaded during print runs for continuous operation.
By adding the optional long-sheet paper input module, high volume print users can now introduce auto-duplex printing on media up to 762mm, feeding 1000 sheets through Canon POD Deck XL.
Thanks to synthetic media support, users can expand their offering to cater for their customers that require more durable and water-resistant applications. Users can print on long-sheet media up to 1300mm for a wider range of marketing collateral, in addition to offering different media weights, between 60 and 400gsm, and supporting embossed paper.
Canon says the Consistently Vivid (CV) Toner, paired with more media versatility and finishing options, produces creative applications that add value to the end users. It says with higher value leading to higher margins, the imagePress C10010VP series is an ideal tool for commercial print businesses or in-house print functions looking to boost profits.
According to Canon, the imagePress C10010VP and imagePress C9010VP achieve the same high-image quality customers expect from the heritage Canon imagePress series. Thanks to its R-VCSEL technology, Multi-DAT colour adjustment and versatile screen patterns for image quality, users will have the confidence to deliver a diverse range of high-quality applications, from menus to mailers and from books to long-sheet banners. The company says the structure of CV Toner offers durability and higher transfer performance, so users can benefit from precision for text and images on every page of every run.
For maximum flexibility business users can create their own configuration that suits the needs of their business and customers, with a choice of a wide range of Canon and third-party finishing solutions with Document Feeding Device (DFD) Bridge connectivity, to create a product ready for immediate delivery.
Matsumoto said: “With 300 installed imagePress devices in Australia in the last five years, we are building on a proven and reliable technology platform, with enhanced automation capabilities to help businesses achieve their future business ambitions.
“In times of business uncertainty, Canon is proud to give customers confidence that they can reliably deliver high-volume, high-quality print time and time again to maximise uptime. In helping our customers achieve more volume, more applications, more quality and more profit; we’re pleased that businesses can help their clients and end-customers turn their challenges into profitable opportunities.”
