The highlight for most visitors at the 4,000 square metre stand will be the first opportunity to see Canon’s most recently launched production print systems, including, Océ VarioPrint i300 – an inkjet sheetfed press with new features and finishing options; imagePRESS C10000VP – a digital production press with a speed of 100 ppm; imagePRESS C8000VP – a digital production press with a speed of 80 ppm; Océ ColorStream 6000 Chroma – a high-speed commercial inkjet system featuring the new Chromera ink set; ImageStream 2400 – a full-color inkjet press for standard coated papers; and ColorWave 910 – a high-speed, single-pass color inkjet printer.

One of the application highlights of the Canon stand at drupa 2016 will be the brand’s new continuous feed inkjet press – the Océ ColorStream 6000 Chroma showing absolute on-demand book production in outstanding color quality. The press will be configured as a completely integrated system with the Zero Speed Splicer u40 and Libra One book block solution from Canon finishing partner Tecnau. This unique configuration aims to elevate books-on-demand production to a new level – from continuous roll to book blocks with variable page count and format, involving on-the-fly paper changes, signature changes from 2- to 3-up, at production speeds of up to 127 metres a minute.

Peter Wolff, director, commercial print group at Canon, said,“Canon’s portfolio of continuous feed technologies – including the Océ ColorStream, ImageStream, JetStream and VarioStream ranges – continues to lead the way in high-speed industrial digital printing. At drupa we will be exhibiting a range of applications processed by our high-end, industrial strength continuous feed inkjet engines to inspire our customers and other visitors to explore new business models across multiple areas of the commercial printing industry, from graphic arts through to transactional and direct mail.”

In every area of the stand, Canon will promote its new campaign to ‘#UnleashPrint.’ This is aimed at communicating Canon’s passion for print as a unique and powerful medium and to celebrate the value of print and sets out to unlock its still untapped potential. At drupa 2016, visitors will be shown how Canon can help them ‘unleash print’ by combining technology innovation with expertise in implementing intelligent new business models that elevate print’s ability to respond to changing customer needs.

Jeppe Frandsen, executive vice president of industrial and production solutions, Canon Europe, said,  “Every print service provider, regardless of their size, business profile or applications focus, should come and talk to Canon at drupa about how we can help them to grow their business. We are a market leader in both inkjet and toner technologies addressing the whole spectrum of print applications, with an extensive international customer base representing all types of print business.”

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.
