Canon Europe Launches VarioPRINT 140
Building on the product heritage of its predecessor, the varioPRINT 135 series, the new varioPRINT 140 series offers unrivalled uptime and productivity, outstanding monochrome print quality and extended finishing options, all optimised by the introduction of the new Océ PRISMAsync 5 controller. The varioPRINT 140 produces no ozone, underlining its sustainable positioning in the market.

The product is capable of printing 143 images per minute in both simplex and duplex modes, making it the fastest printer in the light- and mid-volume production segments. The printer can deliver monthly print volumes of up to 800,000 copies, more than doubling productivity compared with the varioPRINT 135. Peak monthly production volumes may reach up to 2.2 million A4 prints. Together with the varioPRINT 140, new varioPRINT 130 and varioPRINT 115 models are also being introduced, offering speeds of 133 and 117 A4 images per minute respectively.

The introduction of Océ PRISMAsync 5 technology further boosts productivity, using remote printer driver technologies to enable production planning and job scheduling up to eight hours in advance.

The remote app is downloadable to a smartphone or personal tablet, and allows operators to focus on other tasks while receiving real-time notifications of upcoming operator actions, such as loading media or adding consumables, or alerts of immediate actions needed. One or multiple PRISMAsync Print Server-driven digital presses can be monitored at a glance, helping expedite manual interventions to increase device uptime and productivity.

PRISMAsync 5 offers new impositioning possibilities, such as layout, trim and cover, alongside an embedded JDF/JMF interface. The new controller also enables PSPs and in-house print departments to work more securely, thanks to a configurable user interface that allows for audit logging and back-up and restore capabilities. New features such as page numbering, special book copy functionality and an intuitive copier interface improve usability, particularly in ‘walk-up’ environments.

The varioPRINT 140 series offers a full range of in-line finishing options, including stapling, saddle stitching, folding, die punching, inserting, ring binding and high-capacity stacking. The new W1 booklet finisher offers a saddle stitch option for flat finished booklets, while the updated F1 booklet trimmer expands customers’ trimming capabilities. A new professional punch is available, offering A4+, A3 and A4 SEF punching in one model, and with the capability to handle heavier media up to 300 gsm. The open Document Finishing Device Interface also enables in-line connectivity to specialist, third-party finishing devices. For back-up or walk-up environments, the new printer features a simplified catch tray enabling a simple ‘no finishing’ configuration.

Peter Wolff, senior director, customer group commercial printer and production CRD, Canon Europe said: ‘The introduction of the new varioPRINT 140 series demonstrates our sustained commitment to innovation in the monochrome print market and gives PSPs and in-house print departments even more choice. By offering even higher uptime, productivity and more finishing options while also delivering outstanding print quality, the varioPRINT 140 series gives customers a robust production device that is built for business, helping customers to increase output.’

The varioPRINT 140 series is available from August 2017.
