Xaar describes its 2001+ U printhead brings speed, quality and reliability to the Canon Océ LabelStream 4000 press for digital label printing. The roll-to-roll industrial-scale UV inkjet press provides CMYK+W printing and features the latest Xaar 2001+ U printheads. Targeted at label and flexible packaging converters, it can print on a range of standard label stocks including PP and PE plus selected special substrates.

The Océ LabelStream 4000 was developed in collaboration with FFEI, incorporating Xaar’s 2001+ U printhead technology.

Designed for flexibility, the Océ LabelStream 4000 uses different printhead variants from the Xaar 2001+ U family. Xaar says the small drop size of the Xaar 2001+ GS6U provides crisp details in CMYK, whereas the larger drop size of the Xaar 2001+ GS12U helps achieve high opacity with white ink. As a result, the Océ LabelStream 4000 is said to deliver an 80 percent opacity (“alpine white”) at speeds of 48m/min in its Graphics mode, and a 67 percent opacity (“true white”) in a faster production mode at 68m/min.


Available in a number of configurations to suit different needs in labels and flexible packaging, the Océ LabelStream 4000 will launch in two widths at 330 mm and 410 mm.
