ronment, a device must consistently deliver high levels of output
while maintaining excellent image quality and machine reliability—
day in and day out. Introducing the imageRUNNER
Production System...a high-volume, high-performance networked
printing solution engineered to deliver the utmost in productivity.
Operating at a fast 85 pages per minute, delivering the highest out-
put quality in its class, and offering one of the most robust digital
engines in Canon’s current product line, the imageRUNNER 8500 can

with ease. Add to that its extensive finishing capabilities, and you
have the ideal solution for today’s production environments.
So Advanced, It’s Simple
The imageRUNNER 8500 builds upon the award-winning design
of Canon’s current digital product line, offering a consistent
user-interface while also introducing several new capabilities to
enhance document workflow. With the ability to support network
printing, copying, and both local and network scanning,* the
imageRUNNER 8500 can help you to manage all your information
capture, storage, and distribution needs.
Fast to the Finish
In today’s fast-paced business environment, there is no such thing as
too fast. The imageRUNNER 8500 pushes the envelope when
it comes to speed, delivering both copies and prints at a quick
85 pages per minute. Finished documents are continuously output at
the machine-rated speed, even when performing advanced functions
such as stapling and hole-punching. Scanning, which decreases
speed in most competitive units, is achieved at a remarkable
80 pages per minute on the imageRUNNER 8500—the fastest
scanning speed of any multifunction device in the world.
Outstanding Image Quality
The imageRUNNER 8500 delivers the exceptional image quality Canon
customers have come to expect. With 600 x 600 dpi resolution that is
interpolated to 1200 x 600 dpi resolution for copying, and 2400 x 600 for
scanning, you can always count on getting the sharpest image possible.
The imageRUNNER 8500 ships standard with a 100-sheet Automatic
Document Feeder designed to deliver high levels of productivity. Accepting
both simplex and duplex originals in sizes up to 11" x 17" and in weights
up to 110 lb. Index stock, there is little this document feeder can’t handle.
