Canon updates ImagePress C850

Canon has added an automated duplex feeder for banner sheets to its existing cut sheet ImagePress C850, along with some improvements to its workflow.

Canon has added the new POD Deck Lite XL-A1 long sheet feeder to its ImagePress C850 cut sheet digital printer.

The C850 has been able to produce banner sheets since it was first launched but the new POD Deck Lite XL-A1 long sheet feeder enables automated duplex feeding of 1,000 banner sheets up to 762mm. This allows for applications such as A4 landscape folds, extended book covers, tri-fold brochures, long postcards and direct mailings.

Canon has also introduced the latest version of its PrismaSync controller. This speeds up the colour calibration by using one halftone rather than three, while fully automating colour validation tests such as Fogra and IDEAlliance. Version 6 can also be connected with third party JDF/JMF workflows.

In addition, EFI has announced an embedded Fiery Digital Front End, EFI G200, as well as a new external DFE, EFI H300, with additional software updates. Both of these front ends support the new long sheet feeder and are said to improve paper management, reduce downtime and boost productivity.

Wayne Barlow, head of Graphics & Communications for Canon UK, comments: “Quality, productivity and applications versatility are our bywords for the continuous development of our digital production solutions. With these latest enhancements to media feeding and workflow, we are ensuring that ImagePress C850 series customers can take full advantage of the many opportunities to diversify their offering with new products, while further improving colour consistency, productivity and operational efficiency.”
