Canon Announces Fastest Digital Wide Format Colour Printers On The Market


The new Océ ColorWave 810 and 910 are, according to Canon, the fastest digital 106,7cm (42’’) wide format colour printers on the market, with speeds of up to 1000sqm per hour regardless of image complexity, ink coverage or media type. The next generation devices have evolved as a strong choice for PSPs in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), CAD and GIS environments, allowing flexible printing from a single unit in both black and white and colour. 

As part of ongoing collaboration and partnership with customers, the latest in the line of ColorWave printers have been refined and upgraded with the needs of both in-house printers and PSPs in mind. The new single pass inkjet printers deliver best-in-class functionality and unbeatable performance to the high-volume print market.

Integrating seamlessly into existing workflows with a range of finishing options and supporting software, the ColorWave 810 and 910 offer high-volume output at fast turnarounds for optimum productivity.

Also perfectly placed to serve dynamic retail environments, the ColorWave 810 and 910 are ideal for short-term sales campaigns. The high-quality system architecture provides fast and continuous printing and instant-dry prints that are ready to use immediately. Capable of replacing multiple digital printers, both devices are extremely robust and hardworking and offer a practical colour alternative to traditional presses.

Other key benefits of the new models include sharper lines, increased render resolution, grayscale printing and a larger range of media handling capabilities to improve both quality and precision of output.

Hardware updates to the ColorWave 810 and 910 include a new controller PC with more memory, a faster CPU for speed and agility in busy environments and an Adobe PDF Print Engine for faster ripping of complex PDFs with shading or transparencies. Delivery of 3.4 billion drops of 1.2 pico-litres of aqueous ink per second make the ColorWave 810 and 910 significantly lower ink usage printers than their competitors.

A new intuitive touchscreen UI panel with brighter colours and clear operator visible traffic lights (Green-Orange-Red) enhances usability and simplifies routine tasks, saving time and reducing mistakes. As a result, the ColorWave 810 and 910 are two of the most hassle-free and user-friendly wide-format printers the market today.

Pierre-Olivier Esteban, European TDS/DGS Marketing Director at Canon Europe commented, 'The development of the ColorWave range evolved through collaboration and strong partnership with our customers to ensure we delivered a fully integrated solution that met all of their needs. The new printers include a range of finishing tools and software for different applications in order to cater to various customer segments with ease. Efficient, productive, robust and genuinely user-friendly, it is a testament to our dedication to the high-volume print industry and proves once again that Canon is the ideal partner for any print service providers or large companies that want to differentiate their service offering, stand out from the crowd and grow their business over the long term.'
