Canon Expands ColorStream 8000 Series of High-Speed Web-Fed Inkjet Presses with ColorStream 8110 and New Flagship ColorStream 8200

The new ColorStream 8200 and 8110 models extend the production speeds of the ColorStream 8000 series to meet additional customer needs while delivering proven print quality, reliability and application flexibility.

Following the success to date of its ColorStream 8000 series of high-speed, web-fed inkjet presses, Canon today expands the series with two new models, the ColorStream 8200 and 8110. The ColorStream 8200 is now the most productive model in the series, with a maximum speed of up to 200 meters per minute (656 feet per minute). At 110 meters per minute (361 feet per minute), the ColorStream 8110 is ideal for print service providers (PSPs) wanting to invest in a new ColorStream press while maintaining existing finishing equipment.


Since its launch in 2011, the ColorStream range has proved to be an attractive investment for high-volume print production environments, with more than 1800 towers having been installed worldwide. Building on that customer demand, the new Canon ColorStream 8200 is the most productive and automated ColorStream press to date, minimizing the need for manual intervention and offering excellent uptime and efficiency. Operating at maximum speed, the ColorStream 8200 delivers 2,692 A4 pages per minute (2,860 Letter pages per minute). That level of productivity makes it perfect for business communication, transactional and book printers and PSPs needing to handle production peaks with ease while producing a mix of output, including transactional statements, publications, books, direct mail and product inserts.


Offering a print quality equal to the existing ColorStream 8000 models, the new ColorStream 8200 and 8110 models feature native 1200 dpi printheads and highly pigmented water-based polymer inks, for a wide color gamut on uncoated, recycled, inkjet-coated and inkjet-treated paper without pre-treatment. The use of durable, long-life components in the ColorStream 8200 and 8110, together with automation features, such as auto splice handling and tight communication with inline finishing devices, reflects Canon’s focus on supporting customers to achieve peak productivity, while at the same time reducing the environmental impact of its products and operations.


To maximize the efficiency of the ColorStream 8000 series, customers can combine it with PRISMAproduction, an integrated and scalable, high-performance workflow and production management platform that automates and integrates data input and conversion, prepress and print output. Enhancing files for high-performance production printing, PRISMAproduction enables AFP and PDF pre-flighting and make-ready, data enrichment and page composition in one flexible print workflow via a single platform. The batching functionality in PRISMAproduction also allows customers to optimize their order processing and production sequence in line with the ongoing trend in the reduction of run lengths, resulting in efficient output handling on the ColorStream 8000 series.


Peter Wolff, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President, Canon Production Printing, comments: 

“Customers of the ColorStream 8000 series have been delighted with the robust build and print quality of these presses, praising their level of automation, exceptional uptime and consequential OEE performance. With the introduction of the new flagship ColorStream 8200, we’re now helping to boost  their productivity even further without compromising reliability or quality. And as business communication printers and publishers are keen to produce books on more easily recycled, uncoated papers, we’re confident they will find the new ColorStream particularly appealing.”


The new ColorStream 8200 will have its global debut on the Canon stand in Hall 8a at drupa 2024, as a part of an inline, on-demand book production solution. With integrated inline Hunkeler finishing equipment, the press will produce book blocks with auto splice handling, changing formats, variable page counts and variable book spine lengths for any run length at the maximum printing speed of 200 meters per minute (656 feet per minute), delivering outstanding productivity, efficiency and quality in both print and finishing.
