At Printpack India 2015, Canon displayed the imagePRESS C800, imagePRESS C700, imagePRESS C600, imagePRESS C7011VP, iPF 6410S, Plot Wave 360 and more. We are also displaying the latest launch in our wide-format segment, the iPF 8410SE, which is garnering a very good response in the market. We have already booked a couple of orders for this machine at Printpack, says Puneet Datta, director, Professional Printing Products Division, Canon.
There is business happening at our stand. We are getting a very good response from tier-2 and tier-3 cities of North India who are turning out to be serious buyers. A lot of buoyancy is seen in the market. The imagePRESS 800 series, which we launched last year, is doing an outstanding business, says Datta. Delhi-based Avantika Press booked an imagePRESS C800 press at the event. Avantika has a history of buying presses at our stand at every Printpack show for a long time now, he says.
The imagePRESS C800 consistently delivers production speeds of up to 80 impressions a minute on a wide range of media. It can run at maximum speed on heavy stock up to 220 gsm and produces duplex print jobs on 300 gsm media. Major enhancements in the belt fusing technology allow the imagePRESS C800 to print complex jobs on a wide range of substrates. Speaking about the decision to buy an imagePRESS C800, Himanshu Pandey of Avantika Press, says, Till now we were not able to use texture media but with this machine we will be able to do so. Secondly, this press is very much capable of handling issues like transparency and font conversion because of the new front-end in the press, Fiery System 12, from EFI. The EFI controller delivers powerful, fast performance and supports Fiery fast variable data printing for high margin personalized printing.
About Printpack India, Datta says, Printpack is one of the largest print exhibition in India and it is a very important event for the print industry. We, from Canon, have always been a partner with Printpack and our presence at Printpack has only grown over the years. We feel very honoured and privileged that our president and CEO, Kazutada Kobayashi, was a member of the inauguration team of Printpack, concludes Datta.
