Canon launches new C650 digital printer

Canon has developed a new entry-level digital printer, the ImagePress C650, which is aimed mainly at in-house print departments.

The new entry-level ImagePress C650 can produce 65ppm.

It’s essentially a slower version of the C850 that was launched last year and uses the same dry toner imaging system with a running speed of 65ppm. It allows duplex banner printing.

It also offers the same level of finishing options, which should make it an attractive option for some commercial printers. Thus there’s a two-knife booklet trimmer, a paper folding unit, a document insertion unit, a booklet finisher, a multi hole punch including creasing and a staple finisher.

There’s a choice of RIPs, including Canon’s own PrismaSync and EFI ‘s Fiery ImagePress Server H300. There are Printer kits to integrate it with office workflow systems such as uniFLOW, by using Multi-functional Embedded Application Platforms (MEAPs).

Peter Wolff, senior director with Canon Europe Production Printing, explained: “For corporate print departments and smaller progressive print service providers (PSPs) who have traditionally focused on less complex document applications, the ImagePress C650 presents an opportunity to diversify into higher-end, professionally finished applications such as catalogues, booklets and direct mail, as well as high-impact marketing collateral including duplex banner and envelopes.”
