New Canon imagePRESS V1000 Enables Task Automation in Production Environments
Delivering exceptional versatility and productivity, the robust digital colour press helps print service providers take on diverse print jobs and meet demanding timelines
Singapore, 23 June 2022 – Canon today announced the launch of the new imagePRESS V1000, a powerful cut-sheet digital colour press designed to help commercial and in-house print service providers (PSPs) enhance work efficiency with task automation. Empowering PSPs to explore new business opportunities in the production printing market, the versatile imagePRESS V1000 prints on a wide variety of media and produces an extensive range of applications, from business cards and direct mails to booklets, posters, and other creative marketing collateral. As the first model in the imagePRESS next generation lineup, the imagePRESS V1000 delivers maximum productivity, consistent quality and reliability to boost production capabilities.
“We are excited to introduce the all-new imagePRESS V1000 to address the increasing demands of production environments.” said Katsuya Tode, Assistant Director of Regional Professional Printing Solutions, Canon Singapore. “Providing PSPs with flexibility to handle diverse applications, the remarkable digital colour press offers many exciting formats and a very broad media capability. 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.”
Effective Task Automation
With a strong emphasis on task automation, the imagePRESS V1000 helps PSPs ensure colour repeatability and registration alignment effortlessly. The Inline Spectrophotometers (ILS) allow operators to easily perform advanced colour adjustments such as engine linearisation, colour profile creation, G7® calibration, and colour validation in a short span of time with minimal operator intervention. A new Precision Registration Technology helps operators ensure the alignment of duplexed sheets remain accurate and consistent during long production runs, while an optional Sensing Unit automatically detects prints with mismatched colour settings and adjusts accordingly.
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 Colour Task feature streamlines multiple colour 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 Colour Manager and Auto Recall combined with the ILS delivers swift colour management on an intuitive interface.
Productive 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 boost the paper input capabilities to create a wide array of premium applications. Equipped with remote alerts, operators can change media, toner and remove toner waste while keeping the imagePRESS V1000 running for maximum productivity.
High Quality and Reliability
The imagePRESS V1000 features an innovative cooling system that cools paper immediately after fixing for optimum print quality, minimising 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 colour distribution when operators switch between media types with different weights while printing.
The latest imagePRESS V1000 will be available at authorised Canon distributors and dealers from July 2022 onwards.
