Canon debuts D340 and D320 printers

The imageCLASS D340 and D320 are robust digital laser copier/printers that deliver crisp, clear letter-size output as fast as 15 pages-per-minute (ppm) with virtually maintenance-free performance.The imageCLASS D340 and D320 will be available through nationwide retailers in June 2003 and are expected to sell for $549.99 and $499.99 respectively.

The Canon imageCLASS D340 and D320 feature the Canon Single Cartridge System, which contains the drum, development unit and toner in one easily replaceable cartridge. The S35 cartridge, which ships with the products, yields approximately 3,500 black-and-white letter-size copies*. The D340 can reproduce letter-size documents at 15 copies-per-minute (cpm) and legal-size documents at 12.5 cpm, and the ability of its 50-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) to accept originals up to legal size makes the imageCLASS D340 ideal for real estate or law offices. Reducing, enlarging, making draft copies and collating multi-page documents are all handled simply from the easy-to-use front control panel. The D320 offers a lower price point for end-users not requiring the ADF feature.

“The imageCLASS D340 and D320 are an excellent fit for customers who are looking to upgrade from single to multi-function, and analog to digital capability,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Canon U.S.A. Imaging Systems Group. “With the right mix of features needed in small and home offices — great copy quality, speed, laser printing and ease-of-use, we expect these imageCLASS models will earn an excellent reputation and popularity similar to our lines of personal copiers.”

The imageCLASS D340 and D320 include Canon’s printer driver for Windows® 98/ME/2000/XP for high-quality host-based laser printing with a resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi and connect using a USB interface.

A 250-sheet paper cassette coupled with a 10-sheet multi purpose tray that can accept a variety of media including bond, plain and colored paper, transparencies, labels and envelopes, make for
no-worry paper handling.

Like its companion imageCLASS models – the D660 and D680 – the new imageCLASS D340 and D320 also include Canon’s patented RAPID Fusing System, which provides instant warm-up and eliminates waiting time. First copy out time is a quick 11 seconds. Both units also conform to the ENERGY STAR guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
