Hall 8a, Stand C06 – 1, drupa 2012, 3 to 16 May
Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, is demonstrating how Canon and Océ are stronger together as it exhibits its combined portfolio at the Canon stand (Hall 8a, Stand C06-1) at drupa (3-16 May 2012). 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. Canon are 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. It 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 specialised 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 A1 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. (Please see separate Océ press release – ‘Accelerating the transition: Océ extends inkjet ColorStream 3000 series’ dated 4 May, 2012, for further details)
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. (Please see separate Océ press release – ‘New productivity heights with JetStream 4300’ dated 4 May, 2012, for further details)
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 6 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.”
