Canon U.SA., Inc. will be featuring new digital presses at PRINTING United Expo from the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Both the imagePRESS V1350 and imagePRESS V900 Series additions bolster a production lineup that includes the imagePRESS V1000 digital press introduced earlier this year. The entire imagePRESS V family can help enable both commercial and in-house print service providers with their operations by providing them with the ability to create a wide array of applications. The new engines are also designed to improve productivity with automation features and produce repeatable and predictable output.
To get the most from the imagePRESS V Series color digital presses, production environments have the ability to utilize print management applications such as the PRISMAremote Manager, providing the ability to access real-time status of items such as job schedules and remaining paper levels in working to improve efficiency.
The imagePRESS V1350, which will replace the imagePRESS C10010VP, offers a new fusing technology that can allow for print speeds of up to 135 pages-per-minute (letter), an increase of up to 35 percent faster compared to its predecessor model. The POD-SURF (Surface Rapid Fusing) technology assists in optimizing thermal efficiency and variable pressure to achieve high productivity with brilliant quality.
Portions of the internal environment have been reengineered to help the imagePRESS V1350 remain reliable and stable at high speeds across long production runs. Durability enhancements made to the feeding, registration, and image transfer areas aid production environments by producing crisp, detailed, and vivid output on a wide range of stocks.
Designed for demanding high quality production runs of catalogs, booklets, light packaging, and direct mail, the imagePRESS V1350 features closed loop controls to maintain registration alignment and color consistency in real time on a diverse range of substrates up to 500 gsm as well as large sized envelopes, textured stocks, long-sheet banners and synthetic medias.
Among the highlights of the imagePRESS V900 Series is its ability to capitalize on having the smallest footprint among the imagePRESS V portfolio, incorporating crucial core technologies while fitting in tight spaces.
The imagePRESS V900 Series consist of three speed models: V900, V800 and V700, allowing customers to customize their configuration with numerous optional feeding and finishing accessories to allow print establishments to expand their offerings of new and lucrative applications. It also has the ability to auto-duplex stocks up to 30” in length2 allowing print providers to offer new applications such as long edge booklets, 6-panel brochures, and signage to their clients2.
The imagePRESS V900 Series supports stocks up to 130 lb. Cover on a variety of paper types, making it versatile for jobs ranging from marketing collateral, to direct mailing applications including envelopes. With printing speeds up to 90 pages per minute (letter) and a wide array of in-line finishing solutions.
“The next generation of imagePRESS printing solutions are bringing an increased level of automation and new capabilities to our customers,” said Shinichi “Sam” Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We are excited to see how the new imagePRESS V family of devices can support print providers in expanding their business to increase efficiency and minimizing operator interactions through the new automation features and remote management features.”
