Canon launches performance upgrades

Canon has launched two new updates for its Océ LabelStream 4000 series, offering its users improved quality and performance.

The Océ LabelStream 4000 is an industrial scale four- or five-colour UV inkjet press which was designed for the production of self-adhesive labels.

Depending on the individual needs of a company, the press can be adapted from a digital-only reel-to-reel configuration to a full hybrid configuration with a custom mix of flexo, embellishment and finishing units.

When opting for the new ‘Quality’ mode, users can achieve a resolution of 720 x 1080dpi at a print speed of 50 m/min. This results in improved detail, creating smooth tones and vibrant colours for a range of label designs.

When used with Océ LabelStream inks and Xaar 2001 printhead technology, the new mode can reproduce a pantone colour gamut of 94% with CMYK.  

...we have been actively driving the quality and performance of the technology to boost productivity and to support customers in addressing a broader range of self-adhesive labels

The improved ‘Performance’ mode attains a top print speed of 75 m/min at a resolution of 720 x 720dpi. When used with the 16in print width, the Océ LabelStream 4000 series is capable of productivity of up to 1,845sq m/h.

Commenting on the upgrades, Crit Driessen, vice president and head of digital packaging says: “Since the launch of the Océ LabelStream 4000 series in 2018, we have been actively driving the quality and performance of the technology to boost productivity and to support customers in addressing a broader range of self-adhesive labels.

“The latest improvements follow Canon’s philosophy to provide efficient inkjet production solutions for highest net output in all markets served.”
