The demands of print today require more agile printers with the capability to swiftly deliver smaller print runs at faster speeds while maintaining quality akin to offset printing which is where Canon’s revamped varioPRINT and imagePRESS series commercial printers come into the picture. As they’re designed for commercial use, they average the size of a fridge or two laid lengthwise on the floor and have the ability to deliver print runs that stretch into the thousands which is ideal for the needs of small businesses and concerns. Launched under the bold tagline of ‘#UnleashPrint – Built for Business, Bring it On’, the new range of Canon printers are built with cost savings, flexibility and efficiency in mind with optimisation for short print runs.
The Canon varioPRINT series colour printers come in several subvariants that include the varioPRINT DP LINE 140, 130 and 115 which are able to, in general, produce print volumes of up to 2.2 million letter or A4-sized per month and have a remote control app that lets you get real time notifications of the printer’s status as well as what they’re working on at the moment. The varioPRINT DP series printers also have a full range of in-line finishing and output options so that users can print anything from menus to manuals.
The Canon imagePRESS series printers also come in several variants that include the C-Series C850, the C750 and C650 but are optimised for mono prints with the ability to churn up to 170,000 A4 pages a month with a speed of up to 220gsm and up to 85ppm, the ability to tackle Auto-Duplex banner printing and the ability to find print 190 lpi dot screening pattern to produce exquisite images in black and white
