Canon U.S.A. Debuts New Branding and Finishing Options for varioPRINT DP Line of Digital Presses at PRINT 13
MELVILLE, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Canon (News - Alert) U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will unveil
new branding and finishing options for its varioPRINT DP line of
monochrome digital presses at PRINT 13 in Chicago (booth # 502). Pairing
Océ DirectPress Technology and PRISMAsync operations management with
Canon in-line finishing, the Canon varioPRINT 135/120/110 models will
offer the optional Finisher AK-1 and Saddle Finisher AK-2, each
featuring a new jogging capability to help ensure neatly aligned
finished stacks and improved stapling capabilities, including the
ability to staple custom-size media.
Designed for the quick printing, print-for-pay and in-plant/CRD
environments, the Canon varioPRINT DP line also will offer a
Professional Puncher option for high-volume punching with
interchangeable dies. With engine speeds of up to 135, 120 and 110
letter-sized images per minute, respectively, the varioPRINT DP line can
also utilize a diverse range of additional scanning and finishing
options from the Canon imagePRESS digital press line.
"The new finishing options for the varioPRINT DP line will provide
increased functionality to an already highly configurable production
platform," said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager,
Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. "Once again,
the Canon varioPRINT DP line redefines excellence in black and white
printing by delivering an outstanding combination of performance and
workflow integration capabilities."
At the heart of the system is Océ DirectPress technology, which does not
use light, high temperatures or electrical charges to create an image,
making it a reliable and more sustainable alternative to traditional
technologies for the black-and-white market. A low fusing temperaure
results in greater media integrity and allows for precise finishing. Océ
DirectPress technology also replaces the multiple process steps used in
traditional electrophotographic printing technologies with a single,
digital, no-variable process resulting in highly stable and consistent
For printers seeking to reduce their environmental impact, the
varioPRINT DP line produces no ozone emissions and recycles heat by
transferring the heat used to fuse toner onto paper from printed sheets
to new sheets entering the print path. With these and other technologies
incorporated into the design of the varioPRINT DP line, customers can
reduce their energy consumption, a unique benefit when compared to other
digital press systems in its class.
To enhance in-house productivity, PRISMAsync operation management
software makes it easy for operators to manage complex print jobs while
delivering image consistency. The powerful PRISMAsync controller closely
integrates with other Océ PRISMA workflow solutions to help automate
steps within the print production process. For increased automation in
the make ready process, the number of hotfolders available in the
updated varioPRINT DP models have been extended to 250.
The varioPRINT DP 135/120/110 digital presses are available through
Canon Authorized Dealers at the manufacturer's suggested retail price
(MSRP) starting at $50,500. The optional Finisher AK-1 and Saddle
Finisher AK-2 are available at an MSRP of $10,395 and $17,850,
respectively. The Professional Puncher-B1 option has an MSRP of $15,000.
