Canon U.S.A., Inc. has unveiled its new flagship Canon imagePRESS C7010VP digital color production press. The press offers printers the ability to work with an expanded array of media types as well as new features designed to enhance output quality, productivity and versatility. It can handle 16-lb. bond to 120-lb. cover weight paper. It also provides improved image quality through sensor technology that enables better humidity controls. This allows for more accurate toner distribution, enhanced airflow unit and toner density stabilization which all provide improved color consistency and halftone smoothness throughout the print run.
The imagePRESS C7010VP delivers rated print speeds of up to 70 letter-sized ppm and 60 ppm respectively in color and black and white, regardless of paper weight. For larger, tabloid-sized sheets, the new models enhance hourly output productivity on most media types.
Further expanding the capabilities of the new imagePRESS models is a new Saddle Press finisher accessory that increases the maximum sheet count by 25 percent. The increased capacity allows stitching of up to 25 sheets of 13x19.2" paper for creation of 100-page booklets. Stitching and folding pressure can be adjusted to accommodate different paper stocks and help booklets lie flatter.
In addition to the available embedded Canon Printer Kit controller, the new imagePRESS models offer end-users a wide range of controller solutions including the latest technologies from EFI Fiery and Creo Color Server.
