Canada’s first elan 500 is installed
Delphax Technologies Canada Limited, a global provider of high-speed digital printing equipment, is installing an elan 500 cut sheet MICR inkjet press, for Public Works and Government Services Canada in Quebec City.

The elan was selected as a pre-qualified product in the Canadian Government’s Built in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP), which promotes new and innovative goods and services designed and built in Canada.

“As the first elan customer in Canada, Public Works and Government Services Canada has given us the highest endorsement possible for our technology, which will provide future color growth for applications within Public Works and Government Services Canada,” Dieter Schilling, president and chief executive officer of Delphax Technologies Inc. said. “We believe elan offers a combination of cost-effectiveness and color production quality that has the potential to reshape the market. elan’s price, sheet-fed configuration and performance plus the ability to print MICR documents make it the most versatile and affordable system to date in the market place.”

The elan 500 is a production class sheet-fed, duplex-capable system offering full CMYK colour and 1600 dpi print quality at speeds of up to 500 letter impressions per minute. Its digital front end uses Harlequin HHR RIP from Global Graphics for both publishing and variable workflow and is driven by Delphax’s RIP architecture. The touch screen simplifies the operator experience, keeping input options clear and uncomplicated, while the reporting systems provides real-time analysis of system performance for printer operators.

Delphax promises the elan will be an ideal platform for commercial print-on-demand challenges in direct mail, transpromotional, billing, statements and book and manual publishing.
