Canon is setting new standards in production printing with the launch of the imagePRESS V1000

Canon Europe is setting new standards in production printing by launching a brand new tobacco digital color printing press, the imagePRESS V1000. Overcoming the day-to-day production challenges faced by commercial and in-house print service providers (PSPs), the new device incorporates advanced technological features and proven performance advantages, establishing itself as the next generation in the evolution of the imagePRESS family. Thanks to a range of new features and technologies, the imagePRESS V1000 also provides consistent quality and maximum reliability and availability time to improve production capabilities and offer printing applications to professionals.

Hiro Imamua, Vice President of Marketing and Innovation, Digital Printing and Solutions at Canon Europe says: “The imagePRESS V1000 raises the bar in terms of productivity and can handle a very wide range of media. Responding to the needs of our customers, we have introduced a fresh look at the design of digital toner printing presses, exploring innovative ways to solve everyday production headaches and helping printing companies work better, faster and with a wider range to offer their customers creative printing products. Packed with features that go beyond the usual challenges of printing companies, the imagePRESS V1000 can take on a variety of printing tasks and meet even more demanding timeframes. By ensuring consistently high productivity and installing even more automation for excellent print quality with minimal intervention, we free up our customers’ operator time, allowing their expertise to focus on creating value for customers and developing business in new directions. “

The new imagePRESS V1000 gives printing companies more flexibility in processing a variety of requests, allowing them to offer customers exciting formats and a wide range of media options. Full of innovative features designed to make life easier for operators and maximize creative and commercial potential, it is the ideal investment for time-lacking PSPs looking for a robust and reliable digital printing machine that delivers results every day, no matter what. printing task.

Constantly high productivity

The Multi-Drawer Paper Deck option in combination with the use of POD XL and Bypass cassettes increases the paper input capabilities of this machine. Thanks to the completely new transmission technology, even color distribution is ensured, without the risk of sticking when switching between different media weights. New integrated POD-SURF fixing technology controls the temperature of the fixing tape, providing customers with a constant print speed of 100 pages per minute with a wide range of media types and weights from 52 to 400 g / m2, including synthetic and magnetic media. Due to the new correction of the registration in two steps, this printing press has the possibility of automatic duplexing of banner sheets up to 1.3 m. Unplanned shutdowns and decelerations are a thing of the past, thanks to remote alerts notifying the operator when consumables are running low. In addition, operators can change the media, toner, and remove toner waste while the press is running, maintaining machine productivity.

Automation frees up valuable operator time

The built-in spectrophotometric sensor saves time and reduces the level of color control skills required by allowing calibration and adjustment at the touch of a button, without quality control by stopping printing. New two-step registration correction technology ensures perfect alignment every time, even on long sheets. The optional Sensor Unit automatically detects prints that do not match the registration and color settings of that job, and then adjusts and maintains those settings for the duration of printing, saving time and maintaining productivity.

Reliable quality and minimal waste

The imagePRESS V1000 integrates an innovative cooling system that cools the paper immediately after fixing for optimal quality and reduces the risk of waste due to bending, gluing or clustering if the print job remains standing after printing.

An innovative approach to sheet transfer technology creates the optimal transport path for each sheet during the printing process, as the positions of the secondary transfer roller and the spare sheet are variable and change depending on the weight of the media.

Compact dimensions

With the most compact dimensions of any mid-range digital production press, the innovative imagePRESS V1000 design provides 100 ppm production capabilities for much larger printing presses in sizes smaller than 3 m², ideal for any space-constrained printing room.

Concern for the future

The imagePRESS V1000 meets the highest standards of energy efficiency. Not only has this machine been ENERGY STAR certified, but it has also received an EPEAT Gold rating from the EPEAT Registry, a global rating system for greener electronics. Thanks to the possibility of performing a one-time test and taking advantage of savings in energy costs in this regard, the time of trial and error and printing waste is a thing of the past.

Extreme attention has been paid to sustainability in the design of the imagePRESS V1000. If the media in the cartridge does not match the settings, the job may stop before printing, resulting in reduced waste, energy consumption, and CO² emissions. The optional Sensor Unit for this machine performs front-to-back registration adjustments, reducing the need for reprinting. And using the PRISMAsync or EFI Fiery controller, operators can check every detail of a print job, including quality, and make real-time changes to the user interface before pressing a print button, further eliminating unnecessary typos.

Designed to tackle the most innovative applications on a wide range of media types and weights at speeds of 100 ppm, the imagePRESS V1000 enables printing professionals to realize a wider choice and scope of work at high speed, without compromising on quality or productivity.


The new imagePRESS V1000 series will be commercially available from Canon and accredited partners from June 2022.
