Canon Canada has introduced the imagePRESS C850 Series, consisting of the imagePRESS C850 and C750 colour presses, aimed at commercial printers, in-plant operations and franchise printers, among others. The imagePRESS C850 Series is the successor to the company’s imagePRESS C800 Series.
Canon explains the imagePRESS C850 Series is designed to provide offset-like image quality through its gloss optimization technology, enabling users to match the gloss of the toner image to that of the media. The press also leverages a 32-beam R-VCSEL red laser to help produce crisp and clear images efficiently at 24,00 x 2,400 dpi.
For increased flexibility, the system comes with a number of screen patterns to choose from and new 190-lpi dot screen capabilities, again aiming to provide offset-like reproduction. By using CV Toner and an Advanced Image Transfer Belt, Canon explains these devices can print high-quality work on a range of medias, including textured stocks..
The imagePRESS C850 and C750 devices operate at print speeds of up to 85 and 75 letter-sized pages per minute, respectively, in black-and-white and colour. Canon also points to the press line’s reliable paper feeding with air separation and double sheet detection intended to reduce paper jams and production interruptions. The Compact Registration Module is designed to provide consistent colour.
The presses can be integrated with a range of inline finishing options to stack, fold, saddle-stitch, staple, perfect-bind and ring-bind. A new option for this series will be the Multi-Function Professional Puncher-A1 for die punching on a wider range of media sizes and weights for letter size and larger, oblong bound books. Utilizing Canon’s die set, this new finishing module can crease documents in-line to produce folded applications, including saddle stitch booklets, with less paper cracking on the spine of the document. This series of printers now supports auto-duplex printing of up to 30-inch long sheets – helpful in the short run production of 6-panel brochures, posters and dust jackets.
