Canon unveiled the new Océ ColorStream 3000Z series and the Océ ImageStream 2400 at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2015 (23-26 February). The Océ ColorStream 3000Z series is designed to provide the quality and versatility of the ColorStream 3000 range for smaller environments, while the Océ ImageStream 2400 brings the technology introduced with the Océ ImageStream 3500 to a range of additional applications.
Océ ColorStream 3000Z series
The new Océ ColorStream 3000Z series is designed to be the slimmest high volume, full colour, continuous feed inkjet system on the market. Boasting the same capabilities as the existing Océ ColorStream 3000 range, the high speed inkjet engine is designed to occupy 30% less floor space, making it ideal for installation in space-critical environments. The series comprises four systems, ranging in speed from 48 to 127 metres per minute and producing between 324 and 1714 A4 pages per minute. It was demonstrated at the event producing a wide range of sample applications, including personalised consumer retail catalogues, brochures, copies of the Canon Cross Media Guide, and daily editions of the VISCOM report.
Océ ImageStream 2400
The Océ ImageStream 2400 extends the ImageStream range, which combines innovations in high-speed inkjet technology with new ink chemistry to enable printing on coated and uncoated offset-printing media and lightweight papers. This means that print service providers can mix offset and digital production lines without the need for two different types of paper and without compromising on productivity. The Océ ImageStream 2400 brings this technology to applications requiring a print width of 516mm (20.3”) and an optimum printing speed of 160 metres per minute, resulting in an impressive equivalent of 2,154 A4 pages per minute. It is suitable for a wide range of high-end applications, including books, brochures, magazines and catalogues. Combining the familiar image quality and feel of offset print, with the power and versatility of a digital workflow, the model enables shorter or combined print runs, personalised content and print-on-demand.
