Canon releases new Océ ProStream inkjet web

Canon Australia has launched the new Océ ProStream series, which it describes as a commercial webfed inkjet printer designed form the ground up.

The Océ ProStream prints uncoated, inkjet-optimised, gloss and matt-coated papers at a rate of 80 m/min or 1,076 A4/min.

Haydn Wills, business manager, Canon Professional Print, says, “We deliberately took a green-field approach to design, with a commitment to create a product that would open up fresh business opportunities for commercial printers, particularly in high-growth segments such as premium direct mail and marketing collateral. The Océ ProStream delivers on this commitment, pushing inkjet even further into the commercial printing mainstream with its quality and versatility.”

Canon says, the Océ ProStream combines several new core technologies for continuous feed inkjet, and builds on a decade of experience in inkjet with the Océ JetStream, Océ ColorStream and Océ VarioPrint i300.

The latest piezo drop-on-demand inkjet print head generation is leveraged with Océ Multilevel technology, which Canon says is for sharper details, smoother half tones and economised ink usage. According to Canon, an Océ-developed set of ColorGrip and polymer pigment inks creates vibrant colours that leave an impression – on uncoated, inkjet-optimised and gloss and matt-coated offset papers.

The sensitive floatation air dryer ensures that the printed paper is not touched until the print images are fully robust – there are no scratches or changes to gloss levels and minimal paper stress for maximum quality.

Canon says all components are designed for zero-restriction printing: quality with a resolution of 1200 dpi and multilevel dot modulation at 1,076 A4/min productivity and across the wide range of uncoated, inkjet- optimised and offset-coated substrates.

Wills says, “We are confident that the Océ ProStream series will continue to drive our success in our competitive market. With more than 33 per cent market share globally, Canon/Océ is the undisputed worldwide leader in continuous feed inkjet. The Océ ProStream will build on this heritage and carry forward our proud tradition of innovation in professional digital printing.”

The new Océ ProStream loo has already earned an iF design award 2017 from Germany’s iF International Forum for Design, in a competition attracting 5,500 entries from 59 countries.
