Canon U.S.A 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. 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.
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. 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. Canon will be taking orders for the Océ ColorWave 900 printer at PRINT 13.
