STAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE
We understand that, as a printer, you must adapt to the changing demands of your customers, so we are constantly evolving our technology to help you achieve that goal. Without compromising print quality, the ProStream series helps to reduce job production time by bringing the efficiency of inkjet production to longer runs, assisting your transition of jobs from offset to inkjet to allow for increased profitability. Produce a wide range of applications, including premium and high-volume direct mail, books, catalogs, and magazines without technical limitations on run lengths, dynamic varying format lengths, turnaround times, or variable content.
HIGH SPEED, HIGH PRODUCTIVITY
Built for high-quality inkjet production on a wide range of media, the ProStream delivers high speed capability to help expand your revenue opportunities. At a speed of up to 262 ft/min on a 22” wide web, the ProStream 1000 produces up to 6,800 B2 size sheets/hr, equivalent to a monthly duty cycle of up to 3.7 million B2 sheets or 37 million letter impressions. For those with even higher volume needs, the ProStream 1800 prints at up to 436 ft/min, producing up to 11,300 B2 sheets/hr, equivalent to a monthly duty cycle of up to 6.1 million B2 sheets or 62 million letter impressions.
SUPERIOR INKJET PRINT QUALITY
The ProStream series uses native 1,200 dpi piezo drop-ondemand print heads with multilevel drop size modulation for sharp details and quality, with proprietary polymer pigment inks and Canon ColorGrip conditioning fluid for reliable and consistent color. Providing automated print quality assurance, Canon’s optional Inline Quality Control (IQC), a high-performance camera system, allows operators to reduce time spent on quality control so they can focus on getting more work out the door.
INTEGRATES WITH YOUR WORKFLOWS
Powered by high-performance SRA MP controller technology and the latest innovations in PDF workflow, the ProStream series easily integrates into your environment, while its intuitive user interface helps the operator to get maximum engine performance. The optional PDF DFE, PRISMAcontrol, enables the simple submission of PDF files straight to the press for production management right where it happens.
PROTECTIVE DRYING SYSTEM
The ProStream series features a unique drying and mediahandling technology. Through gentle, non-contact drying, the air flotation drying system evenly dries all jobs, protecting the print image to help ensure the best result and preserving the gloss and paper surface better than other drying methods, even on the most sensitive substrates. The system also uses an intelligent sensor control circuit to continuously adjust the dryer settings optimally during the print run for consistency.
PROVEN INKJET EXCELLENCE
With more than 1,700 continuous feed inkjet printer installs globally, the ProStream series benefits from Canon’s outstanding experience and knowledge of high-volume commercial printing. Designed for the most demanding production environments, the ProStream strikes a unique balance between high productivity, superior print quality, flexibility, and media versatility, and is backed by an expert team of integration consultants, color specialists, and service engineers.
