Canon launches imagePress V1000

Print Solutions

Canon UK & Ireland has launched a new cut sheet digital colour press, the imagePress V1000.

The new device incorporates progressive technological features and proven performance attributes. Thanks to these new features, the imagePress V1000 also delivers consistent quality and maximum reliability and uptime to boost the production capabilities and application offerings of print professionals.

Joe Courts, head of product marketing at Canon UK and Ireland, said: ‘The imagePress V1000 raises the bar on productivity and can handle a very broad variety of media for unlocking extra potential. By responding to the needs of our customer base, we have brought a fresh perspective to digital toner press design, exploring innovative ways to tackle everyday production headaches and helping print businesses to work better, faster, with more scope to offer their customers creative print products. Packed with features that overcome common challenges for print businesses, such as productivity, media handling, versatility and quality, the imagePress V1000 can take on a wider variety of print jobs and meet more demanding timescales. By ensuring consistently high productivity and building in more automation for great print quality with minimal intervention, we are freeing up operator time for our customers, enabling their expertise to be channelled into creating value for clients and developing the business in new directions.’

The option of the multi-drawer paper deck in conjunction with the use of the Pod XL and bypass trays boosts the engine’s paper input capabilities to create premium looking applications such as banners, brochures and booklets. And with new transfer technology, the engine ensures even colour distribution, with no risk of sticking when switching between media weights on the fly. New integrated Pod-Surf fixing technology controls the temperature of the fixing belt, giving customers a consistent print speed of 100 pages per minute with a broad range of media types and weights from 52 to 400 g/m2, including synthetic and magnetic media. Due to the new two step registration correction, the press has the ability to auto duplex banner sheets up to 1.3 metres. Unscheduled stops and slowdowns are a thing of the past, thanks to remote alerts that inform the operator if consumables are running low. Furthermore, operators can change media, toner and remove toner waste while the press is running, maintaining productivity of the engine.

The inbuilt spectrophotometric sensor saves time and reduces the level of skill required for colour control by enabling calibration and adjustment at the push of a button, without offline quality checks. New two step registration correction technology ensures perfect alignment every time, even on long sheets. The optional sensing unit automatically detects prints that don’t match the registration and colour settings for the job, then adjusts and maintains these settings throughout the print run, saving time and maintaining productivity.

The printer also integrates an innovative cooling system that cools the paper immediately after fixing for optimum quality, and minimises the risk of waste through warping, sticking or bricking if a job is left standing.

An innovative take on sheet transfer technology creates the optimal transport path for each sheet during the printing process as the positions of the secondary transfer roller and back up sheet are variable and change depending on the weight of the media creating the optimum path for every media and ensuring productivity

Not only is the engine Energy Star certified, but it has also received the Epeat Gold from the Epeat Registry, the global rating system for greener electronics.

In fact, every consideration has been given to sustainability with the design of the imagePress V1000. If the media in the drawer doesn’t match the settings, the job will not be printed, resulting in reduced waste, power consumption and CO2 emissions. The optional sensing unit for the engine makes front to back registration adjustments on the fly, reducing the need for reprints. And using Prismasync or EFI Fiery controllers, operators can check every detail of the print job, including the quality, and make real time changes on the user interface before hitting the print button, further cutting out unnecessary misprints.
