Canon Launches ProStream 2000 series and flagship ProStream 3160


Canon is constantly looking to deliver new technologies that offer our customers maximum value in terms of a return on their investment and enable them to adapt and succeed in changing market conditions.

Canon has launched the ProStream 2000, a new series of web-fed inkjet presses for commercial print and business communications service providers looking for an especially attractive cost/performance ratio for applications on media up to 150gsm and on uncoated papers. It also announced new ProStream 3160, the 160m/min flagship model of the ProStream 3000 series. A new polymer pigment ink set, also included with the ProStream 2000 series, ensures high, consistent offset-like print quality at rated speed, while extending the media grammage/speed range.

ProStream 2000 prints at up to 133m/min on standard offset coated, uncoated and inkjet optimised media from 28gsm up to 150gsm, the ProStream 2000 series offers a better cost/performance ratio and is 20% shorter than the ProStream 3000. It also consumes 10% less energy than the ProStream 1800. The new ProStream 2000 series is the ideal inkjet investment choice for general and specialised commercial print service providers. The series will equally appeal to book printers, who principally produce applications on uncoated media but are looking to diversify into coated media, as well as to business communications companies that want to expand beyond traditional print jobs, such as reports, invoices and statements, to premium direct mail, brochures and newsletters through a cost-efficient and flexible means of production.

Hans Schmidbauer, Director, Marketing & Innovation, Commercial Print, Canon EMEA, shared, “In the case of ProStream, the advances we’ve introduced in recent years have given print businesses exceptional quality, productivity and cost efficiency for high volumes of on-demand applications on multiple media types and weights. And with the introduction of the 160-metres-per-minute ProStream 3160, we’re further improving the breakeven point, compared with offset, to offer customers even greater cost efficiency.

Both the ProStream 2000 series and the ProStream 3160 enable ultra-fast production, allowing print businesses to move even higher volumes of work from offset and legacy technologies. The new 2000 series comprises two models – the 80m per minute ProStream 2080 and the 133m per minute ProStream 2133 – and can print duplex up to 1,790 four-colour A4 impressions per minute or 11,300 B2 sheets per hour, equating to 58 million A4 impressions per month, on web widths up to 558mm.

Both the new ProStream 2000 series and the ProStream 3160 are immediately available directly from Canon. The ProStream 2000 series made a global debut at drupa (28th May – 7th June 2024), Germany), exhibiting a live production workflow with a broad range of print applications.
