Auckland, NEW ZEALAND – 14 June 2023: Canon New Zealand today announces the launch of the new imagePRESS V900 series which sets new standards in cut-sheet toner productivity. Featuring technological enhancements that take it to a new level compared to its predecessor model, this imagePRESS V900 series printer enables both commercial and in-house print service providers (PSPs) the capability to overcome production challenges and meet customer demands for high-quality, dynamic print content and tight deadlines.
With the ability to be configured based on varying business needs, the imagePRESS V900 can be used in a multitude of printing environments. The imagePRESS V series is a powerful family of toner production presses that offers increased automation – making them very operator friendly – a wealth of feeding and finishing options, and seamless integration with workflow solutions via PRISMAsync or EFI Fiery controllers. Offering an extensive range of applications, the series has been engineered for continuous, reliable productivity, consistent and stable colour, as well as impressive front and back registration accuracy.
The entry-level model of the V series family, the imagePRESS V900 series is ideal for printers producing monthly volumes of up to 500,000 A4-pages. It comes in three different models – V900, V800 and V700, reflecting the maximum speed of each – 90ppm, 80ppm and 70ppm – and is made for fast-paced production environments where consistent, high quality, productivity and media choice are required day in, day out.
Not only is it the most compact device in the family, but the V900 also offers a variety of applications that are printable on a small device, thanks to the media it supports – from 52gsm plain and 70gsm coated to 350gsm thick media, narrow envelopes which are 98 x 148mm, as well as auto-duplex 762mm and simplex 1.3m banners and embossed and synthetic paper. This versatility is supported by the latest vacuum technology that adjusts the suction force according to paper weight, stabilising the transport of thick paper, as well as the inclusion of feed rollers and strengthened transport rollers that improve transport stability for thin, thick, and short paper, expanding the range of media¹ that can be used and preventing paper jams.
Removing the need for a highly skilled operator, the V900 incorporates new time-and labour-saving automation features that make it easy to use. The Duplex Colour Image Reader Unit allows the device to make rapid pre-print adjustments to front and back registration (delivering impressive accuracy up to 0.8mm), colour gradation, colour density and secondary transfer voltage to ensure high quality even on textured media. Users simply run printed adjustment charts through the Automatic Document Feeder, part of the Duplex Colour Image Reader Unit, and the V900 then automatically makes the required adjustments. Other time-saving features on the V900 include remote alerts to tell operators when consumables are running low.
Yoshinori Moritaki, General Manager Product Marketing at Canon Australia comments, “The V900 is an invaluable addition to our imagePRESS V series family allowing both commercial and in-house print service providers to work more efficiently with greater scope to offer customers higher value print output. Produced based on customer feedback and built using powerful and proven patented technology, the imagePRESS V series brings a fresh perspective to digital toner press design. It offers a reliable solution for print service providers to produce a diverse range of jobs on a single press. With more automated features and a broad range of feeding and finishing options, the series provides easy workflow integration. Allowing for more freedom in production, they can take on additional print volumes, offer more customer support and help grow their business.”
The imagePRESS V series features controls for maintaining colour consistency in real time and is available with options that include the Sensing Unit for further automation of quality control tasks.
