The new varioPRINT 140 from Canon is available from early summer 2017
Expanding its monochrome print portfolio, Canon Europe has launched the varioPRINT 140 series of production printers.
Building on capabilities of its predecessor, the varioPRINT 135 series, the new varioPRINT 140 is capable of printing 143 images per minute in both simplex and duplex modes. The printer can deliver monthly print volumes of up to 800,000 copies, more than doubling productivity compared with the 135.
The introduction of Océ PRISMAsync 5 technology further boosts productivity, using remote printer driver technologies to enable production planning and job scheduling up to eight hours in advance. The remote app is downloadable to a smartphone or tablet, and allows operators to focus on other tasks while receiving real-time notifications of upcoming operator actions.
PRISMAsync 5 offers new imposition possibilities, such as layout, trim and cover, alongside an embedded JDF/JMF interface. The new controller has a configurable user interface for audit logging and back-up and restore capabilities. New features include page numbering, special book copy functionality and an intuitive copier interface to improve usability.
The varioPRINT 140 series offers a full range of in-line finishing options, including stapling, saddle stitching, folding, die punching, inserting, ring binding and high-capacity stacking. An open Document Finishing Device (DFD) Interface also enables in-line connectivity to specialist, third-party finishing devices. For back-up or walk-up environments, the new printer features a simplified catch tray enabling a simple 'no finishing' configuration.
The new machine produces no ozone and energy consumption is reduced using HeatXchange technology, which recycles the heat used to fuse toner onto paper. The low fusing temperature also allows printing on a wide range of media.
'The introduction of the new varioPRINT 140 series demonstrates our sustained commitment to innovation in the monochrome print market and gives PSPs and in-house print departments even more choice,' said Peter Wolff, senior director, customer group commercial printer and production CRD, Canon Europe. 'By offering even higher uptime, productivity and more finishing options while also delivering outstanding print quality, the varioPRINT 140 series gives customers a robust production device that is built for business, helping customers to increase output.'
New varioPRINT 130 and varioPRINT 115 models are also being introduced, offering speeds of 133 and 117 A4 images per minute respectively.
