Canon has launched a new series of monochrome production presses, the Canon Océ VarioPrint 6000 Titan.
The Océ VarioPrint 6000 Titan series comprises four models, the 6180, 6220, 6270 and 6330, with each model then available in three versions: standard, Transactional Print (TP) and Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) for security applications.
The technology, explains Canon, has been developed with increased quality, speeds and a wider selection of media weights and formats. Supporting volumes of up to 10 million A4 impressions per month, Canon says the new presses are ideally suited to producers of commercial print materials, books and transactional documents, as well as for large in-plants.
The machines are intended as an upgrade on the VarioPrint 6000 (VP6000) platform, printing at higher speeds and taking a larger selection of media weights and formats, with a new Titan Light Weight Media (LWM) option allowing for printing on 45gsm substrates.
They utilise the same Gemini Instant Duplex technology as the original VP6000s, which uses twin print heads to print simultaneously on both sides of the media without the need to stop and turn the sheet.
The redesigned Océ VarioPrint 6000 Titan series can print at a maximum resolution of 1,200dpi, taking a maximum substrate weight of 300gsm at a maximum size of 320x490mm or 350x500mm with an additional XL pin. Four new speed models will be available to meet different production requirements (VarioPrint 6180, 6220, 6270 and 6330).
Each machine has a range of optional finishing options, including bookletmaking, perfect binding, die-punching and trimming, along with offering a Document Finishing Device (DFD) interface for further connectivity to compatible third-party finishers on demand.
Canon explains the Océ Copy Press Technology, which presses toner into the substrate at a low fusing temperature, further reduces the physical stresses on the substrate, while also helping to maintain a flat surface for print and finishing quality and delivering a matte, offset-like image.
Supported by Canon’s Prismasync print server v7, which allows for advanced job scheduling of up to eight hours, the machines offer a range of automation tools, including the Prismasync Remote Manager remote control app and the Prismalytics dashboard for remote management and monitoring of multiple engines.
