Canon to Debut Chroma Inkjet at drupa
March 1, 2016 By PrintAction Staff
At drupa 2016, Canon plans to highlight its new continuous feed inkjet press Océ ColorStream 6000 Chroma, aimed at commercial printing, which features the company’s new Chromera ink set for stronger colour fidelity, wider gamut and higher optical densities.
The high pigment load of the Chromera inks, explains Canon, extends the application range of the press to lighter weight media with reduced ink show-through, and allows for printing higher quality documents on uncoated or inkjet treated papers.
“The new Océ ColorStream 6000 Chroma establishes a new level of colour vibrancy and underlines Canon’s leading position in continuous feed inkjet technologies for production print, with a line-up of high performance presses for business communications, publishing and commercial print applications,” said Christian Unterberger, Executive Vice President, Océ Printing Systems GmbH.
The new press builds on Canon’s ColorStream 3000 and ColorStream 3000 Z printing systems, which the company describes as holding paper waste-free print start and pause and a smart post-processing interface for the printing of short-run books with variable page lengths without rebooting. Océ HeadSafe technology allows for switching between mono and full-colour printing.
A new ‘pre-fire’ function on the ColorStream 6000 Chroma press is designed to provide consistent droplet size and positioning, ultimately leading to smooth ink coverage for large areas of dense colour. Canon explains this technology makes the press suitable for demanding commercial print applications.
The ColorStream 6000 Chroma model offers running speeds from 48 metres per minutes to 127 metres per minute in full colour mode. For monochrome work, there is an optional maximum speed of 150 metres per minute.
Shipments of the new ColorStream 6000 Chroma series are scheduled to begin in autumn 2016.
