Canon Showing Innovative Current and Future Printing TechnologiesMay 4, 2012
DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY—May 4, 2012—Canon Europe is demonstrating how Canon and Océ are stronger together with an exhibit of their combined portfolio at drupa. Co-developed, new and future technologies are being exhibited and announced as part of the broadest range of professional print technologies and solutions in the industry.
The company is looking to inspire print service providers (PSPs) by showing how its technology can expand their services, open up new markets and increase their productivity and revenues—now and in the long-term.
High Capacity Stacker—building value
Since the launch of the jointly-developed Canon imagePRESS C7010VPS, Canon and Océ have continued to work closely together to develop innovative digital printing solutions. Building on the success of the Canon imagePRESS C7010VPS and C7010VP series, a high capacity stacker has been co-developed to extend the finishing range of these systems. The stacker works alongside an open, standard finishing device interface that offers unlimited stacking capacity via an "unload-while-printing" functionality that facilitates continuous production, reduces foot print and the need for further investment.
The unit has a high stacking accuracy that is ideal for feeding into offline post-processing equipment and the capability to configure stack height—ensuring exact output to input if post-processing is done at another location. There is also the option of re-using the original box the paper was delivered in which reduces environmental impact.
New technology—new opportunity
Also being exhibited on the stand will be the new Océ ColorWave 650 Poster Printer, a specialized version of the Océ ColorWave 650. Aimed at the point-of-sale market it can print on a variety of paper sizes and at speeds of 155 A0 sheets per hour. The prints are instantly dry, water resistant, cut to size and ready to be mounted.
New additions to the Océ ColorStream 3000 range are the entry-level Océ ColorStream 3200 and high-speed Océ ColorStream 3900, which join the Océ ColorStream 3700. Developed for transactional print providers, the new Océ digital full-colour inkjet printing systems offer a wide range of speeds and proficient ink and colour management to deliver within tight production schedules.
Another new product is the new Océ JetStream 4300, the latest system from the continuous feed inkjet portfolio. The 200 metres per minute, full colour production printer offers PSPs the opportunity to produce books, magazines, newspaper and transactional print at short and medium lengths.
