Queensland-based BSG Australia has expanded its portfolio to include the Canon varioPRINT iX3200 sheetfed inkjet press.
Joining the company’s existing two ColorStream web-fed inkjet presses, the new addition is expected to improve its productivity, economic efficiency and environmental impact.
BSG says the service and support experience provided by Canon Production Printing was a significant purchasing factor.
BSG Australia managing director Michael Lever said, “We extensively reviewed the market to find the best technology fit for our requirements, and the iX3200 met all our needs. A major contributing factor in our decision-making process was the service and support offering from Canon. As we had already experienced the high level of service support from the Canon team with our ColorStream presses, it made further sense to go forward with the iX3200.”
The investment in the Canon varioPRINT iX3200 also made economic sense for BSG Australia. A cut-sheet press was the clear solution for the company to improve efficiency and profitability on short to medium-run projects.
The Canon varioPRINT iX-series offers a high level of automation and multiple efficiency features that support printers in saving labour costs and reducing maintenance activity, resulting in an improved return on investment and cost efficiencies.
The foundation of the varioPRINT iX-series is an integration of “highly innovative technologies” that make it possible to transport a wide range of media and print at “incredibly high speeds with stunning image quality”.
With nearly 300 installs of the varioPRINT iX-series worldwide since its release in 2020, it is one of the market’s most successful sheetfed inkjet presses.
According to Canon Production Printing Oceania managing director Craig Nethercott, the varioPRINT iX-series provides significant advantages for commercial Printers interested in improving profits.
“Commercial Printers can now say ‘yes’ to virtually any order, with confidence that print quality is flawless, media options are vast, and quick turnarounds are no problem. Customers wanting to offer the broadest portfolio of high-quality applications now have a sheetfed inkjet press that helps them to grow their volumes, as well as manage smaller, more diverse jobs flexibly and profitably,” said Nethercott.
Pointing out BSG’s environmental goals and the role of the Canon iX3200, Lever said, “We’re committed to reducing the impact our business has on the environment. To improve our sustainability practices, we’re moving away from toner-based machines and towards inkjet. That’s another reason why we went with the Canon iX3200.”
From hardware to inks to media, the varioPRINT iX-series is developed with the environment and the future in mind. The water-based iX inks deliver odourless prints and no hazardous disposables for minimal environment impact. With its sheetfed inkjet technology, the iX-series doesn’t emit ozone emission, no matter how many millions of prints roll out of the machine.
