Canon to Launch Continuous-Feed Inkjet Press at drupa
At drupa 2016, Canon will show the brand new Océ ColorStream 6000 Chroma continuous-feed inkjet press. The news was announced this week in Düsseldorf, Germany, at a pre-drupa media conference. The ColorStream 6000 Chroma features the new Chromera ink set, offering customers outstanding color fidelity, wider gamut and higher optical densities.
The high pigment load of the Chromera inks extends the application range of the press to lighter weight media with reduced ink showthrough, and enables the delivery of higher quality documents on uncoated or inkjet treated papers.
The new press builds on the strength of the market-leading ColorStream 3000 and ColorStream 3000 Z printing systems, with paper waste-free print start and pause and a smart post-processing interface that enables efficient printing of short-run books with variable page lengths without rebooting.
The Océ HeadSafe technology enables straightforward switching between mono and full-color printing, maximizing productivity and reducing waste, while delivering consistently high output quality from the first page.
The ColorStream 6000 Chroma model offers running speeds from 48 meters per minute to 127 meters per minute in full color mode. For monochrome work, printers can now benefit from an optional maximum speed of 150 meters per minute.
With low paper waste and efficient ink and power consumption, the ColorStream 6000 Chroma represents a sustainable choice for printers from both economic and ecological standpoints. The new Chroma inks are suitable for deinking processes, making output from the ColorStream 6000 Chroma recyclable to comply with clients’ environmental performance requirements.
Shipments of the new ColorStream 6000 Chroma series will commence in autumn 2016.
