Canon U.S.A. to Launch Océ ColorWave 900 at PRINT 13

High-productivity wide format inkjet printer can print over 6,000 square feet in one hour

MELVILLE, N.Y. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 8, 2013 — Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is taking high-speed production to a new level in the wide format arena with the North American launch of the Océ ColorWave® 900 printer. Visitors to the Canon booth 502 at the PRINT® 13 show in Chicago (Sept 8-12, 2013) will see the Océ ColorWave 900 printer as it makes its debut appearance in North America. Canon will be taking orders for the Océ ColorWave 900 printer at PRINT 13.

Beginning life as the concept Project Velocity, presented for the first time at DRUPA® 2012, the Océ ColorWave 900 printer closes the gap between digital inkjet and traditional offset technology. Designed for the GA (Graphic Arts), AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction), and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) markets, this printer offers a digital workflow that can help increase productivity, lower running costs and increase flexibility for variable data and short- to medium-run length print jobs.

“We see the Océ ColorWave 900 printer as a disruptive technology because of its ability to provide a cost-effective and efficient alternative for producing short-run jobs,” said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “Using this technology, shorter print runs can now be more economical by eliminating plate making and make-ready, while still maintaining the high image quality that our customers expect.”

The Océ ColorWave 900 printer has a raw print speed of more than 12,000-square-feet per hour and is able to print a run length equivalent to the height of New York City’s Freedom Tower in just 30 minutes. Delivering 3.4 billion, 1.2 picoliter drops of aqueous ink per second, the machine is able to produce resolutions of 1,600 x 1,600 dpi.

“Canon is squarely focused on helping our customers optimize their print production,” added Mr. Yoshitake. “The Océ ColorWave 900 offers high throughput capability on a variety of media, making it a go-to printer to help our customers serve a range of their clients’ needs.”

With a maximum media width of 42 inches, the Océ ColorWave 900 printer incorporates the proven six media roll capacity of the Océ ColorWave 650 devices, possessing an impressive total input capacity of 13,650 square feet (up to 650 feet per roll). The output is cut and delivered – dry and ready to use – into a high-capacity stacker, which features dual delivery trays for concurrent printing and unloading to further maximize uptime and increase productivity.

Flexible color management and professional workflow software are available through either the Océ PowerM® controller or ONYX® Thrive™ print workflow software. Additionally, an intuitive touch-screen interface enhances usability and simplifies routine tasks – helping to save time and reduce mistakes.

The Océ ColorWave 900 printer is ideal for a wide range of applications including point-of-sale (POS) posters; exhibition and trade show materials; counter and floor displays; and technical drawings and maps. It is an attractive proposition for wide format print service providers looking to increase print production capacity, and for commercial printers looking for a powerful – yet economical – way to explore new revenue channels.
