Generation Green is Canon's new environmental initiative. This program encompasses imageCLASS Laser Printers, PIXMA Inkjet Printers, and Scanners. Generation Green is designed to provide business partners, customers and consumers a way to learn about the environmentally-friendly approach Canon is taking in designing many of its current and future products. The imageCLASS D1180 has the following Generation Green characteristics:
Auto-Duplexing - Using automatic two-sided printing and copying can save you up to 50% of your paper supply.
4-in-1, 2-in-1 Printing - This option allows users to place multiple pages on one page, saving up to 75% of your paper supply.
PC Faxing - Send documents directly from your PC to a fax machine to reduce paper and print usage.
Energy Saving Mode - When the imageCLASS D1180 enters Energy Saving Mode, it has a low power consumption of 3 watts of energy.
On-Demand SURF Technology - On-Demand SURF (Surface Rapid Fixing) technology uses a linear ceramic heater that heats instantly for fast warm up speeds and Quick First Prints. This results in up to a 75% reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional roller-fixing systems.
Toner Saving Mode - When the imageCLASS D1180 is switched into the toner saving mode, it allows for up to a 20% more economical toner usage.
AIRSHELL Cartridge Packaging - AIRSHELL is packaging material for our imageCLASS toner cartridges that utilizes air cushioning. It reduces product package sizes, helps to improve shipping efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions generated during transport by approximately 23% to 49%.
Toner Cartridge Recycling Program - Canon was the first in the printing industry to create a toner cartridge recycling program. Canon toner cartridges are 100% recovered with zero landfill waste.
Hardware Recycling Program - Canon is committed to the world community and the belief that we are building a better world for future generations. We want to work with our customers to ensure appropriate recycling of certain imageCLASS products to help improve the environment and our local communities.
Refurbishing Program - The Canon refurbishing facility manages waste stream processes for Canon products, so Canon has full control over recovery and salvage for imageCLASS products, not third-party vendors.
ENERGY STAR® - Qualified products are 25% more efficient than conventional models. By using less energy these products reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save energy as well as money. The imageCLASS D1180 automatically enters low-power mode when not in use.
RoHS Compliant - This is a directive from the European Union that restricts the use of hazardous materials found in electronic products. This product restricts the use of cadmium, mercury, lead, hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE).
ISO 14001 - We currently hold the largest Consolidated Certification to the ISO 14001 Standard for our Environmental Management Systems in the world with over 700 Canon companies certified to the Standard.
Energy Star qualified products and practices help you save money and reduce greenhouse emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

Scanning is a pain
I've been using this machine for about a year now and it has great features, but scanning (especially double-sided) is very touch-and-go. Often I am scanning papers that have been tri-folded and 95% of the time I have to scan one side and select "scan other side" rather than being able to just hit "scan double-sided". Otherwise it will just beep at me after the first page or two because it has jammed itself. I don't have this problem as often with non-folded papers, but it still sometimes comes up and is quite annoying.

Best of the best!
Awesome machine. One of the few in my 40 years in the commercial real estate business that seemed to be designed by a user versus some tech guy. I have always wondered why all copiers/printers didn't dispense the paper at the front versus the side where there is usually something else next to it. Very efficient use of the footprint. The wireless function is great too since our server goes down occasionally. I have had other brands of multi-function machines and this is hands down the best. ADF for PDFs is flawless.

Insure professional installment
I have enjoyed the advance software and the ability to do more with this smaller unit. The scan to folders and email with the 2 sided are a real benefit as we move into a paperless environment. The speed is very good and a plus + + + with more options are a great buy in this smaller unit.
The main change about my purchase is that I would choose a color unit and not just a B/W. I would also like to see the owners manual become more user friendly.
Your installers make the differences, choose a professional installer !!!
