State-of-the-art technologies for offset-like quality and next-level productivity
imagePRESS C6010S state-of-the-art technologies bring you the best of all worlds: impressive colour quality with the look and feel of offset and the flexibility and versatility of digital production you need to drive next-level productivity.
The imagePRESS C6010S takes state-of-the-art imagePRESS colour series technologies to the next level – adding all the advantages of eight hours of plan-ahead production with a job scheduler, intelligent pixel positioning technology, advanced colour management capabilities, colour presets and Océ colour profiles to enable next-generation quality, productivity and performance.
Plan-ahead production with intelligent job scheduler
The imagePRESS C6010S series features an industry-unique graphical user interface with intelligent job scheduler. The job scheduler displays every queued job, providing an overview of work scheduled for the day and the production planning possibility for up to 8 hours. Intuitive visual indicators support the operator to precisely control the production. At a glance, you know time to completion for specific jobs based on the media type, set and run length and intermediate automatic quality assurance procedures. You can tell where and how much of your media is loaded, and which finishers are installed and in use. An operator attention light displays the status of the printer - even from a distance. Depending on the operator’s preference the attention light signals upcoming operator interventions such as necessary media refill several minutes before the actual event - and gives you time to prevent a production stop!
Advanced air feeding technologies for reliable productivity
imagePRESS C6010S advanced feeding technologies include vacuum feed and air separation for reliable feeding of different paper types including uncoated, speciality stocks from 60 to 325 gsm and coated media as light as 70 gsm. Dehumidification heaters in all production trays ensure that highly static coated media feed correctly even in humid environments - all to ensure that your digital colour press keeps running without disruption.
Real-time automatic colour calibration for your peace of mind
Consistent, reliable and high quality colour is a prerequisite for building a successful colour business. The imagePRESS C6010S employs several advanced technologies to do just that. Automatic and Reciprocal Colour Density Adjustment Technology (ARCDAT) detects the density of colour patches on the photoconductor drum to calibrate every line per inch in real time. This ensures reliable and consistent output quality and peace of mind for even the most demanding operator.
For quick, periodic adjustments, imagePRESS C6010S digital colour presses measure colour patches on media using a colour toner density sensor in the post-fusing process. So, unlike other systems, there’s no need to print and scan test prints to perform calibration. The result? A vastly simplified calibration process.
High image quality with V-toner and gloss optimisation
The imagePRESS C6010S series uses oil-free V-toner technology, which combines the wide colour gamut of pulverised toner with the best of polymerised toner. Gloss optimisation technology ensures a smooth finish on any media - you even can fine-tune gloss based on specific media settings. V-toner uses wax, which, in combination with T-carrier developer, improves conductivity for increased image development stability. The result – extremely high image quality and reliability.
Image control technologies for stable colour output – in changing conditions
In addition to a steady supply of toner and ATR (Automated Toner Replenisher) the imagePRESS C6010S series incorporates toner density stabilising technology. This exclusive technology calculates the amount of toner charged by electric discharge based on temperature, humidity and toner density levels measured by the temperature and humidity sensor inside the developer unit to control the lookup table (LUT) and laser power. Together with continuous air circulation in the print engine, the imagePRESS C6010S performs with excellent consistency on virtually any media.
Colour presets are templates of optimal colour settings, which a specialist user can predefine for common workflows. Think of colour presets for specific types of print products or for jobs coming from certain customers. Once defined, all staff can easily produce high quality colour output by simply choosing one of the colour presets during job submission - no colour knowledge required. This guarantees consistent quality for any given workflow without the continuous presence of a colour expert.
Active registration for professional end products
Front-to-back registration has a direct impact on the quality and saleability of your finished products, especially for booklet making. With the imagePRESS C6010S you enjoy automatic duplex production on all supported media up to 325 gsm. For razor-sharp, near-perfect front-to-back registration, the imagePRESS C6010S features Intelligent Registration Technology (ITR):
Active registration, which aligns media with the side base plate
Registration patches to align page and image orientation faster and with greater precision
Image size adjustment for back-side prints to compensate for paper shrinkage.
