Canon brings next-gen lineup of imagePRESS production printers to PH

The Canon imagePRESS V1000 opens new business opportunities for commercial and in-house print service providers (PSPs) with its ability to produce a wide variety of media on an extensive range of applications.

Canon imagePRESS V1000 is a cut-sheet digital color press with expanded print production capabilities that synergize form and function. 

“Providing PSPs with flexibility to handle diverse applications, the remarkable digital color press offers many exciting formats and a very broad media capability,” said Kenichiro Kitamura, director of Office Imaging Products (OIP), Canon Philippines. “The imagePRESS V1000 also combines various productivity-enhancing features to help operators tackle day-to-day production challenges, enables task automation for great print quality with minimal intervention, and frees up valuable time for developing new business opportunities.”

Task automation

With a strong emphasis on task automation, the imagePRESS V1000 helps PSPs ensure color repeatability and registration alignment effortlessly. The Inline Spectrophotometers (ILS) allow operators to easily perform advanced color adjustments such as engine linearization, color profile creation, G7 calibration, and color validation in a short span of time with minimal operator intervention. 

The imagePRESS V1000 also comes with two front-end controller options, the PRISMAsync Print Server and the imagePRESS Server D3000. The PRISMAsync Print Server helps PSPs boost production capacity and provides a common workflow across Canon’s production printing offerings. An Automated Color Task feature streamlines multiple color setup functionalities into a single action, providing hands-off automation with ease. Powered by the Fiery FS500 Pro system software, the imagePRESS Server D3000 adds new functionalities to include familiar workflow and prepress features. The Express Media Color Manager and Auto Recall combined with the ILS deliver swift color management on an intuitive interface.

Print operations 

Integrated with POD-SURF (Surface Rapid Fusing), the imagePRESS V1000 effectively maintains a consistent print speed of 100 ppm on coated and heavy media types up to 400 gsm, sustaining high efficiency when printing complex and mixed media jobs. The optional Multi-Drawer Paper Deck when used with the Bypass trays boosts the paper input capabilities to create a wide array of premium applications. Equipped with remote alerts, operators can change media and toner and remove toner waste while keeping the imagePRESS V1000 running for maximum productivity. 

The imagePRESS V1000 features an innovative cooling system that cools paper immediately after fixing it for optimum print quality, minimizing the risk of waste due to warping, sticking, or bricking. A new transfer technology creates the ideal transport path for each sheet of paper during the printing process and ensures even color distribution when operators switch between media types with different weights while printing.
