Canon Europe has launched its new varioPRINT 140 series of production printers, showing commitment to investment and innovation in the monochrome digital print market. The new series also hopes to bring substantial productivity gains compared with previous devices.
Building on the product heritage of its predecessor, the varioPRINT 135 series, the new varioPRINT 140 series offers benefits in terms of uptime and productivity, monochrome print quality, and extended finishing options which are all optimised by the introduction of the new Océ PRISMAsync 5 controller. The varioPRINT 140 also produces no ozone.
The new varioPRINT 140 can print 143 images per minute in both simplex and duplex modes and can deliver monthly print volumes of up to 800,000 copies, more than double compared with the varioPRINT 135. Together with the varioPRINT 140, new varioPRINT 130 and varioPRINT 115 models are also being introduced, offering speeds of 133 and 117 A4 images per minute respectively.
Peter Wolff, Senior Director, Customer Group Commercial Printer and Production CRD, Canon Europe said, “the introduction of the new varioPRINT 140 series demonstrates our sustained commitment to innovation in the monochrome print market and gives PSPs and in-house print departments even more choice. By offering even higher uptime, productivity and more finishing options while also delivering outstanding print quality, the varioPRINT 140 series gives customers a robust production device that is built for business, helping customers to increase output.”
The introduction of Océ PRISMAsync 5 technology, using remote printer driver technologies, enables production planning and job scheduling up to eight hours in advance. The remote app is downloadable to a smartphone or personal tablet, and allows operators to focus on other tasks while receiving real-time notifications of upcoming operator actions, such as loading media or adding consumables, or alerts of immediate actions needed.
Other Key Features of varioPRINT 140 series:
- Full range of in-line finishing options, including stapling, saddle stitching, folding, die punching, inserting, ring binding and high-capacity stacking
- No ozone and virtually no waste toner
- Energy consumption is reduced using HeatXchange technology, which recycles the heat used to fuse toner onto paper

The varioPRINT 140 series is available from early Summer 2017.
