Canon announced the ProStream 3000 web-fed inkjet presses

Canon U.S.A. Inc. announced the ProStream 3000 series, the next generation of its high-speed, web-fed inkjet presses for commercial print. Built on the established ProStreamplatform, the new ProStream 3000 series delivers consistent offset print quality at industrial speed on a wide selection of substrates including heavyweight paper, enabling ultra-fast digital production of a broader range of commercial print jobs, the company said.

The extended media capability makes it even easier for print businesses – including general commercial and online printers, direct mail printers, book producers, and photo specialty printers – to migrate high-volume, high-value work from offset to digital inkjet and print media like 7 pt. at full machine speed as required, said Canon.

The ProStream 3000 produces on web widths of up to 22 inches and page lengths of up to 60 inches, and up to 436 ft per minute, based on the media being used. For those occasions when volumes spike under tight deadlines, the new ProStream series can produce up to 11,300 4/4 B2 sheets per hour, equating to 62 million US letter, on a wide range of substrates and weights, including standard offset coated, uncoated and inkjet-optimized papers up to 300gsm.

“At Canon, we share our customers’ passion for print, and we’re driven to create technology solutions that accelerate their progress towards their business goals,” said Shinichi “Sam” Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Customers worldwide have already embraced ProStream’s exceptional productivity, for everything from high-margin books to premium direct mailing jobs, while benefiting from minimal waste and very high uptime.”
