Canon updates ImageStream 3500

Canon has now officially launched the ImageStream 3500 press that it first announced back in May of this year. Some of the specifications have been updated, so that it’s now capable of 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, and the maximum production speed has been increased to 160m/min.

Christian Unterberger, Executive Vice President of Commercial Printing, said that the changes were based on feedback from the original announcement, adding: “There is an explicit need for higher print quality at the higher speed which we have implemented in favour of our customers.’’

The new press was demonstrated at a customer event printing on standard offset paper stocks. Canon has said that it will continue to develop its ColorStream and JetStream product lines.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
