Lake Success, NY --March 20, 2003 -- Canon U.S.A. announces the immediate availability of the new CLC 3900+ and CLC 5000+, designed for the entry-level and mid-to-high end color production printing marketplace.
The CLC 3900+, which replaces the CLC 3900, is the 39 page-per-minute (ppm) color laser production system designed for the entry-level production marketplace, while the CLC 5000+, which replaces the CLC 5000, offers up to 50 ppm printing for mid-to-high end production.
The CLC 3900+ and 5000+ are both distinguished from the models they replace by incorporating greater media handling capability. Both models can now auto duplex 60 lb. Cover/90 lb. Index (163 gsm) media from their paper decks. The base suggested retail prices of the CLC 3900+ and 5000+ match those of their predecessors at $54,990 and $89,500, respectively.
Using a combination of four drum technology and Canon's exclusive Finer Brighter (FB) toner and Automatic Image Refinement, the CLC 3900+ and 5000+ have print resolution equivalents of up to 800 x 400 dots-per-inch (dpi) and maximum recommended monthly volumes of 150,000 and 200,000 letter-size impressions, respectively. Both devices are suited for production use in print-for-pay, corporate and graphics central reprographics departments, as well as service bureaus.
A number of connectivity options will be available for the CLC 3900+ and 5000+, including the ColorPASS-Z4600, ColorPASS-Z5100, and T/R Systems MicroPress for Canon, allowing customers to tailor the devices to their specific application needs.
For improved front to back registration when duplexing from the stack bypass with LTR-R, Legal, Ledger, and 12" x 18" paper sizes, both the CLC 3900+ and 5000+ can be equipped with an optional Stack Bypass Alignment Tray. For compliance with the Section 508 Rehabilitation Act, both models also offer an optional Dual Control Panel for easy access from a seated position.
CLC 3900+ and 5000+ customers may choose one of two standard available paper decks, including a 4,000 sheet letter-size deck or 2,000 sheet deck that is user-adjustable for letter, ledger, and 12" x 18"sizes with up to 60 lb. Cover, 90 lb Index (163 gsm) stock. With flexible support for up to 140 lb. Index stock (253 gsm) through the stack bypass, both models also offer several finishing options, such as the Nagel Finisher, 20-bin Stapler Sorter, or High-Capacity Stacker. Depending on configuration, finishing options on both models can be used for producing crisp, vivid Canon color within booklets, manuals, brochures and other bound documents.
