Canon company Océ has brought out new eco-solvent printers known as the CS9300 Series. This comprises the CS9360 64in machine - which was previewed at Fespa Digital earlier this year - and the CS9350 54in unit. They are based on the CS9160 and Océ CS9050 respectively but are significantly faster. With a speed of up to 29 m2/hr the CS9360 model is 60% percent faster than the CS9160 printer and at up to 27.9 m2/hr the new CS9350 nearly twice the print speed of the CS9050.
A variety of resolution configurations can be selected to suit the job at hand. The printers include a standard media take-up system as well as a sheet-off function. An optional off-board winder unit is available to support volume printing. The Océ CS9360 model can accommodate 440 ml ink cartridges for longer print runs between ink changes.
The Océ CS9300 series printers include intelligent interweaving print technology that reduces or eliminates the typical artifacts inherent in conventional digital inkjet printing such as horizontal banding, step mismatch banding, and the visible effects of missing or misfiring nozzles.
