Pegasus Media and Logistics installs Canon VarioPRINT iX3200

Sydney-based printer Pegasus Media and Logistics recently installed the Canon VarioPRINT iX3200 from Canon Production Printing (CPP) Australia, at its digital print centre of excellence, to meet customer demand and boost productivity.

According to CPP Australia, this technologically-advanced printer is an integration of Canon iQuariusiX technologies that makes it possible to transport a wide range of media and print at incredibly high speeds with stunning image quality – the perfect print solution for postcards, books, magazines, catalogues and direct mail pieces with targeted content. 

Housed in Pegasus’ own temperature and humidity-controlled room at its newly enhanced, custom built digital centre in Blacktown, the new high-speed inkjet printer delivers on performance. 

“The Canon VarioPRINT iX made a significant impact from its first job. The quality is excellent and our customers have commented that it is indistinguishable from offset print. This is due to its ability to print 320 images per minute at a resolution of 1200dpi by 1200dpi and the pigment-based water inks enabling it to print on a wide range of coated and uncoated papers at varying weights. We haven’t yet fully utilised all the colour settings, but even in ink saving mode, the result is better than any of our other digital printers,” Pegasus Media and Logistics general manager of operations Mark Atkinson said.

Pegasus Media and Logistics is a full-service production and distribution printer. Established in 2022 through the merger of multiple companies, Pegasus now operates under one roof in Blacktown. It is one of Australia’s largest print production companies, and its digital centre is one of the country’s largest on-demand book printers. 

Atkinson noted that choosing the VarioPRINT iX3200 provided several compelling factors for Pegasus, including the print quality, productivity and flexibility.

“We spoke to other printers overseas as part of our due diligence who had installed an i300 or an iX3200, and their reviews were exceptionally good, especially when it came to productivity with a high uptime and only a fraction of the delays due to issues in imaging or transport. The error correction mechanisms to ensure precision and consistency were also a deciding factor,” he said.

According to Pegasus, the introduction of the iX3200 presents the company with a range of exciting applications and business opportunities. This includes its capability to deliver print-on-demand services at the highest quality, which can opens doors in the educational sector, particularly for textbooks and children’s readers. 

The iX3200 can also address the needs of the corporate market by offering document supplies. Additionally, the company believes that the iX3200 will serve as an excellent offset replacement for short to medium-runs, eliminating the requirement for large print volumes and minimising excess inventory whilst ensuring uncompromising quality. 

Since the installation and initial shifts, Pegasus has been extremely impressed with the iX3200’s quality and performance. 

“Run lengths are reducing and many quantities are now below ten, so a machine that can change between jobs and even stocks without stopping is so much more efficient. We service multiple publishers who want to reduce inventory by using print on demand and the iX3200 is perfect for these projects,” Atkinson said.
