Canon will launch a host of new machines at drupa 2024 utilising the theme ‘The Power to Move’.

The theme is said to reflect how Canon’s “powerful combination of technology innovations, expert teams, excellent support services, and dynamic collaboration” empowers printers. 

Canon will showcase its full portfolio of production print technologies from sheetfed inkjet and toner presses to high-speed continuous inkjet production lines, flatbed and roll-to-roll wide-format printers, and digital label printers.

Included in the list of technology launches will be the first live preview outside of Japan of the new LabelStream LS2000 water-based digital label press which is expected to be available in 2025. 

Also on show will be the European debut of the new varioPRINT iX1700 sheetfed inkjet press, the new Arizona 2300 FLXflow flatbed wide-format printer with PRISMAelevate XL; and the new imagePROGRAF PRO and imagePROGRAF GP series.

The latest PRISMAelevate XL release 2.1 doubles the printing height of supported Arizona flatbed printers to 4mm for tactile artwork and elevated print.

Users of the current Arizona 2300 with FLOW technology can upgrade to the latest version with FLXflow functionalities, including optional Float and Instant Switch features.

The ProStream 2000 series which comprises two models: the 80m per minute ProStream 2080 and the 133m per minute ProStream 2133, will also be making its global debut.

In addition, the new ProStream 3160 160m per minute flagship model of the ProStream 3000 series will be demonstrated.

Hans Schmidbauer, director of Marketing & Innovation, Commercial Print, at Canon EMEA, says: “We understand that one size doesn’t fit all and, with the launch of the new ProStream 2000 series, we now have a seamless portfolio of inkjet production presses, both sheet- and web-fed, that can meet the individual needs, in terms of applications and volumes, of every general commercial and online printer, book producer, photo product specialist and business communication printer.”

Another global debut for the Canon stand at drupa will be an addition to the ColorStream 8000 series of high-speed, web-fed inkjet presses, the ColorStream 8200 press. 

With a maximum speed of up to 200 metres per minute, the ColorStream 8200 is now the most productive model in the series. Canon has also launched the ColorStream 8110 which is offers speeds of up to 110 metres per minute.

Taking up 4,600sq m of space, the centre of Canon’s stand and hosted hospitality space will feature ‘The Core’. This will provide an immersive, multi-sensory exploration of print’s emotional impact. 

Fanning out from this area, Canon’s technologies will be arranged by industry segment: Commercial Print, Publishing (including books), Promotional Communications (including direct mail and retail), Labels and Packaging, Interior Décor, and In-house and CAD Printing. 

Canon will also be showcasing live production of various label, corrugated, and folding carton applications.
