Canon Showing Innovative Current and Future Printing Technologies
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.
Project Velocity—a breakthrough in large-format digital printing
Visitors to the Canon stand have the opportunity to see the future of large-format printing in the concept product—Velocity. The large-format digital printer combines high-speed Memjet Inkjet technology with proven Océ workflow to print up to 500 A0 colour prints per hour—it can print the equivalent height of the Eiffel tower in half an hour.
Incorporating the same six media roll capacity of the Océ ColorWave 600/650, Velocity combines five Memjet inkjet printheads, to operate simultaneously, applying more than 3 billion drops of ink per second. Coupled with a width path of 106cm (42″), the machine will deliver a new level of large-format print productivity to the CAD, GIS and GA markets.
“Today’s announcements are yet a further demonstration of how Canon and Océ are stronger together,” says David Preskett, European Professional Print Director, Canon Europe. “Through continuous product development and innovation, Canon can help customers take advantage of the new opportunities they identify through seeing the bigger picture.”
