The Océ VarioPrint DP Line, consisting of the VarioPrint 95, 105, 120 and 135, is a range of black and white, light- to mid-production printers that combine an Océ print engine and controller with Canon's integrated scanning and finishing technology.
Output speeds for the range vary between 95 A4 ppm to 135 A4 ppm, in line with the model number, while all models feature Océ's DirectPress, HeatXchange and EnergyLogic technologies, as well as the Prismasync controller.
The engine also incorporates the in-built scanning and finishing capabilities of Canon's ImagePress range, which is said to prevent toner cracking when folding and creasing and reduce media distortion as a result of the low fusing temperature.
Meanwhile, the ImageRunner Advance C9000S Pro series light production colour print engine allies Canon's ImageRunner Advance C9000 Pro with Océ's Prismasync controller.
It can print up to 70 colour or black and white images per minute and can handle a variety of media – on sizes up to 330.2mm x 487.7mm and weights up to 300gsm.
Jeremy Plint, Canon Business Imaging assistant general manager for business marketing, said: "The launch of these two jointly developed systems demonstrates our continued collaboration, particularly in the area of product development. Our commitment to driving innovation in the market means we can focus on creating better products for our customers to help secure the long-term future of their business."
"Not only are we bringing to market another Canon system on the Océ Prismasync platform, but also a breakthrough black and white Océ system based on new, co-developed technology."
Damian Schaller, marketing manager at Océ Australia, added: "Customers can benefit from a solution that offers intuitive operation, ease of use and multiple media and finishing options on one highly efficient and versatile platform."
"The series introduces a number of unique productivity-boosting features, including an intelligent job scheduler and a media-based workflow that minimises downtime and enables customers to plan production efficiently."
The new Canon ImageRunner Advance C9000S Pro are available from October 2011 in Australia from both Canon and Océ. The new Océ VarioPrint DP Line will be launched in Australia in 2012.
