Canon launches mono VarioPrint 140 printer

Canon has announced a new series of monochrome production printers, the VarioPrint 140, which build on the features of the older VarioPrint 135 series. This series is targeted at the light to mid-volume production print market.

Canon has launched this VarioPrint 140 monochrome production press.

The VarioPrint 140 can produce 143 A4 pages per minute in both simplex and duplex modes. There’s also a new VarioPrint 130, capable of 133ppm, and a VarioPrint 115, which runs at 117 ppm. They use a new 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.

There are a number of in-line finishing options, including stapling, saddle stitching and inserting. There’s a new W1 booklet finisher with a new saddle stitch option for flat finished booklets, and an updated F1 booklet trimmer. It’s also possible to add other finishing through the open Document Finishing Device (DFD) Interface.

These printers come with the recent Océ PrismaSync 5 controller. This enables planning and job scheduling for up to eight hours in advance. There’s a remote app that can be run from a smartphone or tablet that can be used to monitor several server-driven presses. Canon has also improved the imposition for PrismaSync 5, with new layout, trim and cover features.
