Canon pledges quality with new Océ ProStream
Canon has further expanded its portfolio of solutions with the launch of the new Océ ProStream next generation continuous feed colour inkjet press.
Combining some of the best features of Canon’s existing high-performance inkjet technologies with new innovations, the manufacturer said that the new machine will take high-speed inkjet, to the “next level of colour output quality and media versatility”.
Boasting a printing width of 540mm, the Océ ProStream is capable of operating at speeds of up to 80m/min and can produce as many as 35 million A4 pages per month.
Other features on the press include a new pigmented polymer ink set, which Canon said matches or exceeds offset colour gamut for high quality applications, as well as a new, high-definition 1200 dpi Océ DigiDot printhead.
The press also has a new, non-contact flotation drying technology that minimises physical stresses on the paper and leaves the printed image untouched until dry, which in turn will enable dense ink coverage for vibrant colour reproduction.
In addition, Canon’s ColorGrip paper conditioning technology will help users to ensure optimal print quality on standard coated and uncoated offset papers from 60 to 160gsm.
Christian Unterberger, chief marketing officer and executive vice-president production printing products at Canon-owned Océ, said: “The ProStream is a natural addition to Canon’s established portfolio of continuous feed inkjet solutions, meeting the needs of progressive customers who are looking for higher quality and improved media choice for sustained high-volume production.
“With this new press, customers can now confidently migrate high-value work from offset to inkjet. This will enable print service providers and brand owners to exploit the full creative potential of variable data printing to elevate print’s effectiveness within data-led multi-channel campaigns.”
The Océ ProStream will be commercially available from this summer.
