Canon Introduces New Models to imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX Lineup

Canon U.S.A. Inc. has announced the launch of several new models to the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX product line. The new models are designed to help customers simplify, control and evolve — simplify the end-user experience and management of technology, better control sensitive information and print-related costs, and help ensure that technology investments proactively evolve with changing needs.

Included in the new line are five product families across black-and-white and color, supporting a range of print volumes and print speeds.

Users of the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX models announced this year can find security feature improvements, including a new status display for McAfee Embedded Control. Automatic recovery at startup; an enhancement to the Verify System at Startup feature is another new feature that allows the device to continue to boot to a known state (Golden Master) if tampering is detected at startup, aligning with the Platform Firmware Resiliency Standard of NISG SP 800-193. Plus, a stronger storage encryption is available that is expected to support FIPS 140-3 (pending validation).

Users of the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX 4900 and C3900 Series devices can also realize sustainability improvements. A lower melting temperature toner compared to predecessor models helps to reduce the power needed for fixing and improves Typical Electric Consumption (TEC) Values. Additionally, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX 4900 and C3900 Series models include sustainable parts developed from 100% reused plastic and utilize full cardboard packaging that is more environmentally conscious.

With these latest additions to the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX line, all models are equipped with a solid state drive (SSD), which offers high durability and efficiency.

The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX models add to Canon's lineup of A3 and A4 lines of printers/MFPs, earning the Buyers Lab (BLI) 2022-24 Most Reliable A3 Brand Award as well as the BLI 2023 A4 Line of the Year Award, both from Keypoint Intelligence.

"We take great pride in serving our customers and channel partners with excellent products and service, and are continually looking for ways to assist in their digital transformation efforts," said Shinichi "Sam" Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A. Inc. "We feel that the addition of these imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX Series models will be a great asset toward achieving those goals."

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX 8900 Series, imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX 4900 Series, imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX C3900 Series, and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX C359iF Series are now available.

Order taking for the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX 6980i is expected to start in June.

In other news, Canon U.S.A. Inc. has announced the launch of six new models in the Arizona 1300 flatbed printer series, the 1340/1360/1380 GTF and 1340/1360/1380 XTF, featuring FLOW technology, an innovative zone-free vacuum system that makes media handling easy. Also being announced is the upcoming availability of PRISMAelevate XL software, an extension of the powerful PRISMA XL Suite, which can help users create tactile print applications and produces elevated prints on compatible Arizona printers, helping users print textured effects with elevation up to 2mm.

Extending the comprehensive Arizona flatbed printer family, the Arizona 1300 series with FLOW technology serves the growing mid-volume segment, enabling large format graphics printers and other print service providers (PSPs) to offer their customers an extensive range of applications for retail, interior décor, packaging and industrial markets. Designed for productivity, the new printers enable users to produce versatile, accurate and highly efficient multi-board and double-sided printing. The Arizona 1300 GTF joins the existing Arizona 1300 GT series while the Arizona XTF series replaces the current Arizona 1300 XT series.

With variable print speeds of up to 568.3 ft2/hr, the Arizona 1300 series with FLOW technology is designed to allow users to print pin-sharp, high-value print applications. PSP customers can benefit from eye-catching prints on rigid or flexible media of any size up to 49.2-by-98.4 inches with the Arizona GTF or 98.4-by-121.3 inches on the Arizona XTF. With added FLOW technology, users can quickly change media and board size, making it an ideal solution for printing many short-run jobs spread throughout the day, allowing users to deliver commercial quality prints and help increase levels of productivity. Since there are no vacuum zones, far less if any masking and taping is required, helping to reduce effort, time and cost.

Other new features include updates to the user interface with Advanced Image Layout Controls, which give users the ability to make last-minute adjustments before printing, including: trimming; multireference points flexibility; and visualization and modification of the print layer sequence. The new controls allow users to respond quickly to board material availability, to help use up leftovers and reduce waste, while providing more flexibility and time and cost efficiencies. The new Arizona 1300 GTF and XTF also benefit from an additional pneumatic registration pin on the right side of the print zones. Originally introduced with the Arizona 2300 series, the additional registration pin enables quick, easy and accurate double-sided printing without requiring calculations. These models also include a new accounting interface, to help users retrieve valuable data on ink consumption and production time, for example, for further processing in accounting packages.

New print modes have also been added for both the Arizona 1300 GTF and XTF. These include Quality-Smooth, Production-Plus and Quality-Plus (eight-channel configurations), to support exceptional print quality, print after print. The additional "Plus" modes also allow users to achieve a larger color gamut to create eye-catching applications.

The Arizona flatbed printer series, from design and manufacturing to use, reuse and recycling, has been designed with a number of sustainability benefits. Blower boxes for creation of the FLOW and LED curing bring energy efficiencies, the circular design means Arizona devices can be repaired and easily disassembled, enabling reuse and recycling of materials and VariaDot technology reduces ink consumption. UL GREENGUARD Gold certified, the inks are safe for use in sensitive environments and are free from Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

The extension of the powerful PRISMA XL Suite with the upcoming PRISMAelevate XL software, the successor of Arizona Touchstone but with added functionalities, creates tactile print applications and elevated prints on the Arizona 1300 and 2300 flatbed series. PRISMAelevate XL will become the latest member of the successful PRISMA XL Suite enabling customers to design creative, high value applications with textured effects by mimicking textured surfaces and using embossing, metallic accents and raised lettering up to 2mm.

"The Arizona printer has helped revolutionize flatbed printing and has continued supporting the mid-volume market segment to allow for new growth opportunities and help meet print buyer demand for fast turnarounds," said Shinichi "Sam" Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A. Inc. "Renowned for its image quality, productivity, reliability and application versatility, Canon has expanded the Arizona 1300 series with the launch of the GTF and XTF models with FLOW technology. These new models offer the unparallelled image quality of prior and current Arizona models, and in combination with the upcoming PRISMAelevate XL, are designed to increase customer productivity and overall experience, allowing customers to remain competitive."

The PRISMA XL Suite is part of Canon's PRISMA workflow solution portfolio and includes PRISMAguide XL, an easy-to-use, innovative software solution that includes plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to assist customers in building and previewing designs using pre-defined job recipes for Colorado and Arizona printers.

The PRISMA XL Suite is completed by PRISMAservice – a new cloud-based service platform that provides faster, more efficient and more effective customer support for Arizona printers, with 24/7 access to service information, dashboards and relevant service data to predict, plan and perform relevant service activities to keep printers running.

The Arizona 1300 GTF and XTF with FLOW technology will join the existing 1300 GT series and are available immediately, while PRISMAelevate XL software is currently scheduled to be available for ordering and delivery from July 2023.
