Canon Extends its Color Production Printer Range with the New imagePRESS C170 and C165
Following the successful launch of the Canon imagePRESS C165 in 2019, the new imagePRESS C170 continues to meet the industry demand for streamlined professional print workflows in office environments. Like the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX series, the imagePRESS C170 and C165 provide absolute ease of use with the same intuitive interface and navigation, while ensuring strong endpoint security with a wide range of security features.
Supporting diverse outputs and quality in-house printing, the robust color production printers equip businesses with the ability to produce outstanding colored prints at a professional standard. The imagePRESS C170 and C165 offer remarkable print speeds of up to 70 pages per minute (ppm) and 65 ppm respectively when producing high-quality colored assets in-house, helping businesses meet fast turnaround times and tight deadlines.
“With hybrid work style emerging in the new normal, businesses are looking to maximize employee productivity while in the office,” said Yasuhiko Shiraki, Business Imaging Solutions Director, Canon Philippines. “Delivering excellent print quality, speed and paper compatibility, the imagePRESS C170 and C165 increase efficiency by enabling on-demand, in-house production of marketing collateral necessary for sales promotion, such as pamphlets, and posters, effectively broadening the print capabilities of our customers.”
Designed to meet a wide range of printing needs, the imagePRESS C170 and C165 help users handle distinctive print formats alongside the standard A4 and A3 media, including envelopes, heavy media up to 350gsm, and long-sheet banners up to 1300mm. Providing further flexibility, the printers support gloss, silk, plain and textured media, as well as a large range of in-line professional finishing for versatile and creative outputs.
The Multi-Density Adjustment Technology (Multi-D.A.T.) enables the printers to perform real-time density adjustments while printing. Users can prevent color fluctuations and produce high-quality deliverables steadily even when printing in large volumes. Additionally, the printers feature diverse print resolutions, including 190 lpi (lines per inch) and 170 lpi to attain high-resolution, high-quality images and text with superb clarity.
The paper cassette of the printers features an internal guide mechanism that maintains uniform paper position, and a technology that controls paper delivery speed, preventing the misalignment of letters, regardless of paper size or type during high-volume printing. Offering high front and back registration accuracy, the printers also produce high-quality deliverables that require high positional accuracy on both sides of paper, such as double-sided flyers.
