Canon, world-leader in imaging solutions, has added to its imagePRESS portfolio with the launch of the imagePRESS C600i. Incorporating best-in-class technologies, the imagePRESS C600i delivers professional quality printing to address the growing needs of internal corporate print departments, creatives and small agile print shops for more frequent, shorter runs of premium output on a wider range of media. It is also the first Canon production print engine to integrate seamlessly and securely into existing office systems.
Central to the appeal of the imagePRESS C600i for corporate environments and SMEs is its host of management tools designed to maximise production efficiencies and reduce costs. These include print fleet and asset optimisation, output management and control solutions, as well as optimal document workflows to deliver fully integrated managed print services.
Operating at speeds of up to 60 pages per minute, the imagePRESS C600i handles an extensive range of substrates, including stocks up to 300gsm auto duplex with media sizes up to SRA3, opening up new business opportunities by enabling users to increase their in-house production of quality printed communications, such as high-end presentations, brochures, pitch collateral and internal communications.
In addition, the new print engine is fully compatible with industry standards, such as PCL and PostScript, as well as ERP systems from vendors such as SAP and supports printing from Linux/Unix systems. It also benefits from embedded MEAP and MEAP web platforms, enabling the introduction of data capture and document output management solutions such as uniFLOW, eCopy and iWDesktop. Operator experience is simplified by a series of device management and eMaintenance tools to maximise efficiencies and minimise downtime.
Commenting on the launch of Canon's latest addition to its imagePRESS series, Mark Lawn, European and UK Marketing Director, Professional Print Solutions, Canon Europe said, "With the introduction of the new imagePRESS C600i, we now have a unique and powerful solution that delivers best-in-class professional quality output with seamless integration into existing office systems. Its ability to tackle even heavy and structured media makes this an exciting all-in-one proposition for internal print environments and small agile copy shops looking to expand their service offering."
Drawing on the advanced technologies of the imagePRESS platform, the C600i delivers the highest levels of colour consistency, vibrant image quality, enhanced colour calibration and accurate registration.
The new imagePRESS C600i will be available throughout Europe from 1 March 2015.
