Canon has launched the new Océ VarioPrint 6000 Titan series of cut sheet monochrome production presses, introducing a range of technology innovations to further enhance productivity, quality and media versatility.
Supporting volumes of up to 10 million A4 size impressions per month, the new presses are ideally suited for producers of commercial print materials, books and transactional documents, as well as large inplants.
The series comes in three versions – Standard, TP(Transactional Print), and MICR – and has a range of finishing options including bookletmaking, perfect binding, tape binding, die punching, trimming and offers an open Document Finishing Device (DFD) Interface for further connectivity to compatible third party finishers on-demand.
The 6000 Titan series represents a substantial redesign of the press, with an ultra robust steel body to support customers’ industrial production requirements, facilitate maintenance and maximise press uptime.
Following on from its predecessor, the VarioPrint 6000+ series, the increased maximum running speed of 328 A4 images per minute in perfecting mode translates to a potential of over 30,000 additional images, in one week, in one shift operation. Four models are available to meet different speed requirements (VarioPrint 6180, 6220, 6270 and 6330), with the option for customers using the lower speed models to purchase temporary licences for increased speed to handle short term or seasonal production peaks.
Increased productivity is also supported by extended functionality in the Prismasync print server v7, which allows for advanced job scheduling for up to eight hours to enable unattended printing. Further tools such as Prismasync Remote Manager, Remote Control App for smart devices and the new Prismalytics Dashboard cloud service boost productivity by enabling remote management and monitoring of multiple engines.
The new presses are optimised for the broadest range of media in the series’ history. The new Light Weight Media (LWM) Option with LWM Air Guide Technology enables printing on substrates as light as 45 g/m2, opening up multiple new product avenues for users, for example in applications such as legal documentation, specialist publishing and multi-language product and pharmaceutical inserts.
Wayne Barlow, head of Graphics and Communications, Canon UK, said: ‘When the first iteration of the Océ VarioPrint 6000 entered the market in 2007, it redefined expectations of what was possible from a mono press in terms of output speed, quality and reliability, and has since supported the growth and development of hundreds of businesses. Fast forward ten years, and with the new Titan series, we have engineered a range of high performance monochrome presses that brings together the best technical attributes of the original VarioPrint platform with new technologies to push the boundaries of heavy black and white production still further. These new presses are at the pinnacle of speed, reliability, quality, versatility and sustainability in their class.’
The new Océ VarioPrint 6000 Titan series presses generate virtually no ozone emissions or waste toner, and their energy consumption is calculated to be 30% less than other machines in their category, helping customers to minimise running costs while supporting a healthy operator environment.
