London, UK; Venlo, The Netherlands, – Canon Europe and Océ announced the next milestone in the journey of Canon and Océ to becoming the global leader in the print industry with the launch of two co-developed production printing systems: The Océ VarioPrint DP Line, a series of compelling black and white systems, and the Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9000S PRO, a next-generation, light production color printer.
The Océ VarioPrint DP Line is based on breakthrough and highly sustainable technologies that help customers reduce their environmental impact.
Océ HeatXchange technology implemented in the Océ VarioPrint DP Line saves energy by transferring the heat used to fuse toner onto paper from printed sheets to new sheets entering the print path. By recycling the heat in this way, customers can reduce their energy consumption by at least 30% compared to other systems in its class. The Océ VarioPrint DP Line has the lowest TEC (Typical Energy Consumption) value in the mid production market and can be plugged into a standard power outlet.
Océ DirectPress technology does not use light, high temperatures or electrical charges to create an image, making it a reliable alternative to traditional technologies for the black and white market. Océ DirectPress technology produces no ozone emissions making for a cleaner working environment for system users. Despite its low energy use, productivity is high, because of Océ EnergyLogic. This technology matches the power requirements of a print job with that available in the system. It ensures that the system starts printing quickly after a cold start or maintains maximum speed after changing to heavier media.
The co-development of new technology is further evidence that Canon and Océ are stronger together and better positioned than ever to ensure that their customers have access to the broadest and most advanced portfolio of professional print solutions.
