Canon is pushing for the improvement of the local printing industry in the Philippines by releasing tow new large format printers to empower print service providers and their customers.
On one hand there’s the imagePress color production cut-sheet presses, which include the imagePress C700 and the imagePress C800 which churns out 70ppm and 80ppm respectively. The C800 is capable of handling a wide variety of media including heavyweight coated stock and envelopes thanks to its Elastic Intermediate Transfer Belt that allows it to produce extensive applications on uneven materials such as textured or recycled media.
The printer utilizes a 32-beam Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) unit with multi-exposure technology to deliver incredible detail and resolution up to 2400 x 2400 dpi. It also has a new AutoCorrect Color Tone (ACCT) feature that allows for multi-dimensional mixed color calibration.
Other notable features of the C800 include Consistently Vivid (CV) technology that allows for improved transfer efficiency for enhanced color consistency and accuracy across various mediums, and a Compact Registration Technology (CRT) that ensures every single image is placed at the same spot on every sheet thereby granting the user with precision alignment for large volume print jobs.
And speaking of large volume print jobs, the C800 offers a new multi-drawer paper deck with three new technologies, which prevents misfeeds even with coated stocks. There’s also a built-in induction heating and cooling technology to allow the device to moderate its internal temperature intelligently to optimize productivity with mixed jobs.
Finally there are the new Canon imagePROGRAF printers (iPF8410SE and iPF6410SE) that offer high quality large-format printing. The printers in this range features six-color pigment ink system for lowered ink usage.
Just like the C800, the imagePROGRAF printers are compatible with a wide array of print media and enables users to produce vibrant posters through enhanced basic performance for the creation of posters and other point of purchase materials. Moreover, both models come with two ink tanks which allow them to continue printing even if the tank runs out of ink due to the sub-ink tanks installed.
The iPF6410SE comes with a free copy of Canon’s PosterArtist Lite software for easy poster editing. Both models also come with a Print Plug-in for Office that should make it easy for users to design, preview and print posters from Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint and Word.
