New features of the Canon imagePRESS C850 series strengthen customer application possibilities
Canon has extended the capabilities of its imagePRESS C850 series of cutsheet toner presses with the addition of an automated duplex feeder for banner sheets, plus improved workflow solutions.
The capability to print banner sheets has been a popular attribute of the Canon imagePRESS C850 series since its launch. The addition of automated duplex feeding for long sheets fully unlocks the commercial potential of this feature, enabling customers to confidently promote the advantages of this media format and differentiate their product offering.
The new POD Deck Lite XL-A1 long sheet feeder enables automated duplex feeding of 1,000 banner sheets (up to 762mm). This makes it possible for print service providers (PSPs) and in-house print rooms to produce extended runs of document, book and high-quality graphic arts applications that take advantage of the longer sheet, such as A4 landscape folds, extended book covers, tri-fold brochures, long postcards, direct mailings and so on.
The imagePRESS C850 series is specifically designed to deliver the versatility and media flexibility needed in a busy, multi-application production environment, with a front-loading media tray to help operators switch seamlessly between standard formats and long sheets.
PRISMASync v6.0 controller
Supporting customers seeking high colour consistency for quality graphic arts applications, the introduction of version 6.0 of Canon’s own PRISMAsync controller increases the speed of colour calibration by a factor of three by using one halftone rather than three, while fully automating colour validation tests such as Fogra and IDEAlliance. The improved controller also connects with third party JDF/JMF workflows for further production efficiencies.
