Canon has launched the new Océ LabelStream 4000 series, an industrial-scale UV inkjet press with optional flexo printing, embellishment and finishing units.
With an industry-leading productivity range of 950 – 1672 sqm/h the press looks set to carve out a commanding presence in the growing label printing market.
Combining the virtues of UV inkjet printing with conventional technologies, this innovative label press delivers unrivalled value-add in terms of time, cost and value, enabling converters to select the best combination for any production requirement.
At its core the Océ LabelStream 4000 series is a 5-color UV inkjet press (CMYK and white) with a print speed of 48 m/min. It offers print widths of 330 mm (13”) or 410 mm (16”) and an optional performance mode of 68 m/min for less demanding print jobs. Providing a one-pass digital high opacity white of more than 80% at standard press speed the opacity of analogue printing technologies such as rotary screen and flexo can be matched.
