Canon today announced a new colour production cut-sheet press, the image PRESS C800 series as part of their continued efforts to empower print service providers (PSPs) to cater to the print industry’s ever-evolving needs.
With technology derived from the award-winning Canon imagePRESS series, the 70ppm imagePRESS C700 and 80ppm imagePRESS C800 deliver excellent print quality, enhance productivity and enable versatility in both commercial and in-house print environments.
“We are confident that the new imagePRESS C800 series will be an invaluable asset to the print services industry. This innovative technology will help businesses to deliver nothing short of the best quality print services at maximum productivity and efficiency,” said Jojo Bolima, Senior Director for Business Imaging Solutions & Regional Operations of Canon Marketing (Philippines) Inc.
Empowered with Versatility
The imagePRESS C800 is capable of handling a wide variety of media, such as heavyweight coated stock and envelopes. This is attributed to the Elastic Intermediate Transfer Belt, which allows it to produce extensive applications on uneven media, such as textured or recycled media.
Additionally, the imagePRESS C800 operates effortlessly be it short runs or even complex variable data printing for personalized print communications.
An extensive choice of automated in-line finishing capabilities for the imagePRESS C800 series ensures end-to-end productivity and opens up a wide range of business opportunities with minimal manual intervention, generating time and cost efficiencies with every print job. For maximum flexibility, the imagePRESS C800 series is also compatible with various third party in-line finishing devices.
Impressive Print Quality
In helping customer exceed the requirements of print jobs in the industry today, the ImagePRESS C800 series utilizes a 32 beam Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) unit with multi-exposure technology to deliver vivid detail and resolution of up to 2,400 x 2,400 dpi.
Beyond excellent print resolution, is the new AutoCorrect Colour Tone (ACCT) that allows for multi-dimensional mixed colour calibration; while an upgraded and user-friendly colour calibration tool, the Auto Gradation Adjustment (AGA) helps PSPs deliver on uncompromised quality with the most vibrant images and text.
Outstanding Performance in Precision and Consistency
The newly developed Consistently Vivid (CV) technology allows for improved transfer efficiency for enhanced colour consistency and accuracy across various mediums of media, such as embossed paper and paper with irregular surfaces.
In complementing the CV technology, the Compact Registration Technology (CRT) ensures that every single image is placed at the same spot on every sheet; granting precision alignment even for print jobs that scale up to the thousands.
Maximized Productivity and Efficiency
The imagePRESS C800 series is capable of achieving high production speeds of up to 80 impressions per minute (ipm) across varying types of media, and achieve the fastest possible speed on heavy stock up to 220 grams per square metre (gsm) without compromising print quality.
When handling heavy weight media of up to 300 gsm, the imagePRESS C800 series can produce duplex print jobs with highly accurate front to back registration without any manual intervention or impact on print room productivity.
The device also features a new multi-drawer paper deck with three new technologies, which prevents misfeeds, even with coated stock. For new materials within the system, a new separation control system and a system that blows air at varying speeds [depending on the weight of the paper] eliminates paper jams to maximize device up-time. Hence enhancing print room efficiency and productivity.
Finally, the in-built innovative induction heating and cooling technology enables the device to moderate its internal temperature intelligently to optimize productivity with mixed media jobs.
With these, the imagePRESS C800 is sure to make your business operations simpler as it boosts productivity and competence to a whole new level. This also best illustrates the “Do More, Work Less” philosophy introduced by Canon Marketing (Phils.) Inc. new president and CEO, Lim Kok Hin. This thinking means that businesses must utilize advanced technologies for better efficiency at work so as to enjoy the other aspects of life.
Customized Workflows to Suit any Print Environment
The imagePRESS C800 series features three innovative workflows to accommodate the different needs of in-house print and Graphic Arts environments. The Canon imagePRESS Printer Kit B1 allows for the easy production of high-quality print jobs. The PRISMAsync iPR C800 series A1 provides a single point of control for the entire production workflow with easy, intuitive operation and efficient task splitting. The imagePRESS Server F200 and imagePRESS Server G100, two new digital front ends (DFEs) offer faster processing, unsurpassed image quality and easy-to-use, automated workflows.
