Canon Extends its Colour Production Printer Range with New imagePRESS C165
Facilitating diverse output and in-house printing, the Canon imagePRESS C165 meets a wide range of business needs, from office to commercial printing
SINGAPORE, 28 OCTOBER 2019 – Canon today announced the launch of the imagePRESS C165, a new addition to the imagePRESS series of colour production printers. Supporting diverse output and in-house printing, the printer offers high-productivity output of 65 pages per minute (ppm) when producing A4 documents in landscape mode, while requiring a small installation area similar to that of an office multi-function device.
“The new imagePRESS C165 is built with versatility in mind, fulfilling a varied range of business requirements ranging from office to commercial printing,” said Takashi Nagao, Senior Manager, Regional PS Product Marketing, Canon Singapore. “Delivering excellent print quality and paper compatibility, the imagePRESS C165 enhances production efficiency by enabling on-demand, in-house production of marketing collateral necessary for sales promotion, such as pamphlets, posters and business cards that would otherwise be outsourced.”
The paper cassette of the imagePRESS C165 features an internal guide mechanism that maintains uniform paper position, and a new technology that controls paper delivery speed, preventing the misalignment of letters, regardless of paper size or type during high-volume printing. Offering high front and back registration accuracy1 , the printer effectively produces high-quality deliverables that require high positional accuracy on both sides of paper, such as double-sided flyers.
Compatible2 with long paper up to 1,300 mm, the imagePRESS C165 facilitates the printing of elongated output such as POP (point of purchase) signages for retail outlets, posters, 6-fold A4 pamphlets and book covers. Supporting thick paper up to 350 g/m2, the printer produces solid, luxurious deliverables, including business cards and greeting cards. The printer is also compatible with PosterArtist Lite, a software employed by Canon imagePROGRAF large-format printers to easily create posters. Providing various basic templates for a wide range of business types, including offices in general, retail distribution and services, users can use PosterArtist Lite to produce POP signages and posters in-house effortlessly without any specialised skills.
The Multi-Density Adjustment Technology (Multi-D.A.T.) adopted by the imagePRESS series enables the new imagePRESS C165 to perform real-time density adjustments while printing. The printer prevents colour fluctuations while maintaining productivity, producing high-quality deliverables steadily even when printing in large volumes. Additionally, the printer is compatible with diverse print resolutions, including 190 lpi (lines per inch) and 170 lpi, to attain high-resolution, high-quality images and text with superb clarity.
The Canon imagePRESS C165 will be available at authorised Canon distributors and dealers from November 2019 onwards.
