Poing – Canon, world-leader in imaging solutions, today unveils its new Océ ProStream series, heralding a revolutionary new approach to premium-quality inkjet printing that takes inkjet technology beyond its current limits and further into the commercial printing mainstream. The Océ ProStream prints uncoated, inkjet-optimized, gloss and matt-coated papers at premium quality at a rate of 80 m/min or 1,076 A4/min. The new series is already winning accolades even before launch: the ProStream has earned a coveted iF design award for 2017.
Christian Unterberger, Chief Marketing Officer & Executive Vice President Production Printing Products, outlines the drivers for developing the new series. “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 amazing quality and versatility.”
Frequently breaking with conventional wisdom, the Océ ProStream combines several completely 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 for sharper details, smoother half tones and economized ink usage. An Océ-developed set of ColorGrip and polymer pigment inks creates exciting, vibrant colors that leave a lasting impression – on uncoated, inkjet-optimized 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.
