Canon launches new varioPRINTiX-series sheetfed inkjet press

Canon announced the launch of its varioPRINTiX-series, an advanced sheetfed inkjet press. The iX-series comes in two base models, the 320 A4ipm (9,000 SRA3iph) iX-3200 and the 210 A4ipm iX-2100, which is field upgradable to the iX-3200 specs.

The presses were due to be launched at drupa 2020 but with the postponement of the show, decided to go ahead now.

The machine can print on a wide range of media – including offset-coated paper ranging from 90 to 350 gsm with native 1,200-dpi processing. This feature allows customers to produce high volumes of commercial print applications, from marketing collateral and premium direct mail, to catalogues, magazines and books.

The press is offered with four paper bins each able to hold 4,500 sheets of 80gsm to give a capacity of 13,500. Each bin has four trays able to hold different substrates and weights with a conditioning unit to ensure paper entering the press is in a consistent condition, flat and with a consistent gap to the sheet ahead. Any sheets that do not conform can be rejected.

Other new features include a new polymer pigment water-based inkset and ColorGrip for high quality, vibrant colour and a new “breakthrough” combined air, heat and humidification drying system.

Powered by a high-performance, media-driven workflow, the PRISMAsync print server optimizes productivity by automatically setting the appropriate printing parameters for the media selected, while enabling advance scheduling of up to 8 hours of production. Combined with PRISMA software, a completely automated and highly intuitive solution that can be integrated into any existing workflow, the technology covers multiple stages of production – from creation and print management to finishing and delivery tracking.
