Canon Adds to imagePRESS Line
Canon has announced new machines in its toner-based imagePRESS lineup. According to the company, the new C7010VP, C6010VP and C6010 presses are built in direct response to customer feedback.
“Following the successful launch of the imagePRESS line in 2007, Canon has invested three years of product research and development, incorporating significant customer input and feedback to improve the platform and deliver greater performance across a range of categories,” said Sam Yoshida, VP and General Manager of Canon USA’s Imaging Systems Group.
The imagePRESS C7010VP and C6010VP presses are equipped to handle an expanded range of media types from 16 lb. bond to 120 lb. cover weight while delivering rated print speeds of up to 70 letter-sized pages per minute (ppm) and 60 ppm respectively in color and black and white, regardless of paper weight. Top speeds of the new machines are unchanged compared to the C7000VP and C6000VP.
The company says it has incorporated new sensor technology that enables better humidity controls resulting in more accurate toner distribution, as well as an enhanced airflow unit and toner density stabilization providing improved color consistency and halftone smoothness throughout the print run.
