Canon unveiled the Océ VarioPrint 6000 TITAN Series of sheetfed monochrome production presses, which will be on display at PRINT 17 in Chicago later this month. Set to be available in the Americas in 2018, the TITAN Series builds off the existing Océ VarioPrint 6000 Series and its Gemini Instant Duplex Technology.
The technology, explains Canon, has been developed with increased quality, speeds and a wider selection of media weights and formats. Supporting volumes of up to 10 million letter-size impressions per month, Canon explains the new presses are ideally suited to produce commercial print materials, books and transactional documents.
The Océ VarioPrint 6000 TITAN Series will be available in three versions, including Standard/TP(Transactional Print)/MICR, with a range of finishing options that include booklet-making, perfect binding, tape binding, die punching and trimming. The Series also offers an open Document Finishing Device (DFD) Interface for further connectivity to compatible third-party finishers on demand.
The redesigned Océ VarioPrint 6000 TITAN Series offers maximum running speeds of up to 320 letter images per minute in perfecting mode, which translates to a potential of more than 30,000 additional letter prints in one week in a one-shift operation. Four new speed models will be available to meet different production requirements (VarioPrint 6180, 6220, 6270 and 6330).
Increased productivity is also supported by extended functionality in the TITAN Series’ new, Windows 10-based PRISMAsync Print Server v7, which allows for job scheduling for up to eight hours to enable unattended printing. Further available tools include PRISMAsync Remote Manager and Remote Control App. User authentication, configurable UI and an e-Shredding option are some of the security features on this device.
The new TITAN Light Weight Media (LWM) Option with LWM Air Guide Technology will enable printing on substrates as light as 30 pound Text (45 gsm). The new light weight media capability is supported by the Océ Gemini Instant Duplex Technology, which uses twin print heads to print simultaneously on both sides of the media without the need to stop and turn the sheet.
Canon explains the Océ Copy Press Technology, which presses toner into the substrate at a low fusing temperature, further reduces the physical stresses on the substrate, while also helping to maintain a flat surface for print and finishing quality and delivering a matte, offset-like image.
