varioPRINT iX1700 at a Glance

varioPRINT iX1700 is the gateway to added value potential of inkjet with B3+ cut-sheet. Printers can leverage new areas of business within inkjet applications, competing with traditional offset and toner pricing, as well as with a wider max sheet size. Supporting up to 14.33” x 25.98” varioPRINT iX1700 pushes the limits for jobs outside of B3 limitations.

Ideal market segment is for print shops with equivalent print volumes in mid to heavy production. With press speeds of up to 165 ipm LTR / 73 ipm B3, it is ideal for a wide range of print environments extending from heavy commercial print, to light in-plant. ColorGrip conditioning liquid along with expanded ink gamut and small droplet CMYK inks provide clean, crisp output that competes with the high-quality of offset, while also supporting variable data of digital.


Produce rich, bold, impactful jobs with sharp detail, smooth gradations, and vibrant color with Canon’s new proprietary high-definition inkjet printhead. Printing at 2400 x 1200 dpi, the high-definition ink heads offer commercial printers and in-plants a new way to offer print that exceeds customer expectations.


The varioPRINT iX1700 unlocks a new range of personalized applications, from luxury brochures and catalogs, premium direct mail, data personalization, specialty, coated and textured medias. The press is designed to accommodate a wide range of applications to help printers stand out among the competition.


As the worldwide leader in total high-volume inkjet for more than five consecutive years (IDC MarketScape: Worldwide High-Speed Inkjet Press 2023 Vendor Assessment), Canon brings the successes of high-volume inkjet to the cut-sheet market. Printers will find Canon core technologies with paper feed control and multi-sheet detection, as well as innovative inkjet features such as automated nozzle cleanings and self-detection jet sensors, all designed with reliability in mind to help keep presses running.


Similar to Canon’s imagePRESS V Series family and varioPRINT iX3200, the varioPRINT iX1700 includes powerful automation when combined with the PRISMA suite, helping to eliminate unnecessary press operator hours on tasks that consume valuable shift time. Owners and operators will experience an automated workflow that not only selfmonitors the press during operation, but also allows for upfront optimization with scheduler tools and self-service support.
