Quantum Increases Capacity with Canon ProStream 1800 Installation

The Quantum Group, a trusted expert in direct marketing and business communications services, is continuing its investment in innovative new technologies to better serve its customer base with the purchase of a Canon ProStream 1800 inkjet web press.  The addition of the ProStream adds to Quantum Group’s extensive line of digital and offset printing equipment.

Cheryl Kahanec, CEO of Quantum says, “Our client’s printing and mailing programs have become more complex. Today’s campaigns feature vivid imagery, dynamic content and higher degrees of variability printed on unique formats and substrates. The ProStream sets a new benchmark for inkjet quality, with a color gamut beyond offset standards.” 

“As a forward-thinking company, we continuously evaluate the benefits of the latest technologies with a view to not only enhance our current services, but also to deliver something new and unique,” explains Kahanec. “We quickly realized that Canon’s solution offers just that and could take our digital printing services to the next level.”  

At full speed, the ProStream leverages 1,200 dpi resolution with multilevel ink drop size modulation. This creates smooth shadings, striking details in dark tones, and sharp fonts — making it perfectly suited for the production of premium and highly personalized direct mail, and more. 

She continues, “The production speed on the ProStream is incredible. With speeds up to 436 ft./min., Quantum’s throughput has increased exponentially. The highspeed inkjet print quality of the ProStream provides us with the flexibility to migrate higher volume jobs from offset to digital inkjet. Our printing and mailing volumes have tripled over the last year and with the ProStream, Quantum has increased our production capacity, and also created redundancy within our facility.”
