Andheri East based Edifice Technologies organized demo sessions for Canon imagePRESS C650 from 5 to 8 March at the newly set up demo center at its office. Along with running the imagePRESS C650, Edifice also promoted the other models from the imagePRESS series—the Canon imagePRESS C750 and Canon imagePRESS C850. The company is the exclusive dealer for the Canon imagePRESS series in the Mumbai region. The demo center at Edifice’s office is one of a kind in western India for the Canon imagePRESS series.
“During the four days we tried to create awareness about the new aggressive fasma announced by Canon and also showcased the capabilities of the C650 press and the imagePRESS series. We ran a variety of media but focused on the textured media. We also demonstrated that the press can run long prints in duplex mode,” says Saumitra Trivedi, managing partner, Edifice Technologies.
With a compact and efficient path design, the imagePRESS C850/C750/C650 can produce duplex print jobs on heavy weight media up to 300 gsm, with highly accurate front to back registration. In terms of speeds, the C650, C750 and C850 can print 65, 75 and 85 pages per minute respectively with a resolution of 2400 x 2400 dpi.
Significant footfall during the four days
Trivedi shares that during the four days 60 quality printers visited the demo center with serious enquiries.
“We got some really serious enquiries with more than ten solid ones. We also managed to book four orders in total for imagePRESS C650 and imagePRESS C850. All the printers who visited our demo center were excited about the new fasma as their running cost will decline by almost 20%. This will have direct positive impact on their bottom-line,” Trivedi says.
Asked if more such demo sessions will be organized in coming months, Trivedi informs that such events will be organized only if they find the need to inform the industry about something new.
