Canon has launched two new high performance wide format colour systems which are set to make their UK debut in March. The two new models come as both printer only and multi-functional; the Océ ColorWave 500 dedicated to work groups and the Océ ColorWave 700, designed for wider graphic arts applications.
The printers are designed to enable a wide range of high quality applications, supporting businesses that need instant dry and water resistant prints on roll-based media. Both printers utilise the latest version of Océ CrystalPoint technology for high speed toner printing with 'excellent' adhesion to standard and speciality substrates, a higher print quality and clean refilling.
The Océ ColorWave 500 is designed to support CAD, GIS and production applications in the manufacturing, architecture, construction, design and reprographics industries. The system comes with secure cloud connectivity and Windows 8 embedded controller.There is also an option for removable dual hard drives, for added data security.
The Océ ColorWave 700 caters for businesses requiring a higher print volume, such as reprographics, sign and display print providers, and in-house printing applications in industries such as retail, hospitality, POS, education and government. The 700 supports media up to 0.8 mm of thickness that makes it suitable for a uniquely large range of graphics such as canvas, wallpaper and banner printing.
Both printers feature cloud integration, multiple user support, secure workflow and an optional built-in scanner. Up to six different rolls of media can be loaded at one time, making the printer able to handle many different jobs. Dual hard drives and fast processors speed up file processing, and automatic media sensing and imaging device maintenance increase print quality and reduce the need for servicing. www.canon.co.uk
