Canon India has announced the launch of a new generation of the imagePRESS series, the V1000 and V900, on 27 March at Pamex 2023 in Mumbai. The new series is suitable for the light and mid-production print environment.

The presses were inaugurated by Manabu Yamazaki, president, and CEO, Canon India, who said Pamex has been a very important platform for Canon for many years. “Pamex has been an important playground for us as all stakeholders come here. We are proud to be part of this show. We are expecting a good footfall yet again at the event, providing us the opportunity to demonstrate the unique capabilities of the new V-series,” he said.

Yamazaki said Canon was proud to unveil the new imagePRESS V series, which reflects the company’s commitment to aligning products and solutions with customers’ changing expectations and industry trends.

The imagePRESS V series is equipped to handle a wide range of printing tasks, ranging from simple documents to top-notch marketing materials on varying types of substrates. The imagePRESS V1000 has a strong front-end controller option: the imagePRESS Server D3000. Powered by the Fiery FS500 Pro system software, the imagePRESS Server D3000 adds new functionalities, including familiar workflow and prepress features. In addition, the Express Media Color Manager and Auto Recall, combined with the ILS, deliver swift color management on an intuitive interface.

Perfect for light volume production, the imagePRESS V900 series produces monthly print volumes of up to 500,000 A4 pages and consists of three different entry-level models, the V900, V800, and V700 with print speeds of up to 90/80/70 A4 pages/minute, respectively. Built to meet the needs of varied production environments, the imagePRESS V900 series delivers superb versatility by incorporating the latest technology that adjusts the suction force before fixing according to different paper weights, stabilizing the transport of thick paper.

The imagePRESS V900 series includes feed rollers and strengthened transport rollers to improve the transport stability for thin, thick, and short paper, expanding the variety of high-quality applications printable on the press. The versatile series supports a wide array of media ranging from 52g/m2 (gsm) plain and 70g/m2 (gsm) coated to 350g/m2 (gsm) thick media, narrow envelopes, auto-duplex 762mm, and simplex 1.3m banners, as well as embossed and synthetic paper.

The Canon stand is also exhibiting other products, including upgraded wide-format printers such as the imagePROGRAF TM, TZ & GP Color Series, and the recently launched imagePROGRAF TC series.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
