With a range of distinctive and reliable technologies, enhanced automation and extensive media-handling capabilities, Canon U.S.A. (Melville, NY) has launched its new imagePress C10010VP and imagePress C9010VP Digital Color Presses. With over 28,000 installations in North America since its introduction over a decade ago, the imagePress family of colour digital presses has been a market leader in offering unique and dynamic technologies, while also helping print providers stand out through diverse and innovative applications, the OEM added. With the imagePress C10010VP Series, Canon is building on its improved paper handling and registration designed to help users increase productivity, and is also introducing new accessories and print-server options. Engineered to help support business expansion, this series is the company’s “flagship toner-based colour digital press line” that provides shorter delivery times, increased productivity of printing operations, and can produce a wide range of higher-margin work.
“From the Ultrasonic Multi-Sheet Detection and Active Registration System, to its Inline Spectrophotometric Sensors and Multi DAT colour consistency technology, print environments of all sizes can be prepared to meet tight deadlines and amaze their toughest customers with brilliant output – all with minimal effort,” said the Canon. The new digital presses are equipped with high productivity of up to 90 ppm (imagePress C9010VP) and 100 ppm (imagePress C10010VP) of one-up images on letter-sized sheets, and up to 112 ppm (imagePress C10010VP) of two-up images on tabloid-sized sheets. As jobs are becoming more complex with varying substrate weights and coatings, Dual Fixing technology can help to maximize production uptime while maintaining high image quality.
Equipped to now support up to 150 lb. cover (400 gsm) stock from any drawer, as well as optimized to run many types of synthetic media, the imagePress C10010VP Series can produce value-added deliverables – including brochures, luxury business cards, signage and restaurant menus. The POD Deck Lite XL and enhanced BDT VX-790 long-sheet feeder options offer automatic duplex printing and continuous feeding of banner stocks up to 30 inches – to help customers create cost-effective posters, signage and marketing collateral that are popular for six-panel brochures and eight-panel gate-fold documents.
