Large Format Solutions Deliver Big Profits

Display graphics professionals are dedicated to the production of high-quality sign and display applications and demand high quality tools.

During the Expo, Canon Solutions America will highlight several of the Océ Arizona Series flatbed printer models, which combine true flatbed printer design and versatility at an affordable price. The Océ Arizona Series features Océ VariaDot imaging technology that delivers near-photographic image quality, even at high print speeds. For suitable applications, a higher speed Express mode is available for all Océ Arizona Series printers. Print providers can expand their range of offerings with the ability to produce a wide range of applications, including outdoor point-of-purchase signage, second surface backlit displays, exhibit displays, architectural and directional signage and event signage.

Attendees can also view the award-winning Océ ColorWave 900 printer at the Canon Solutions America booth. The Océ ColorWave 900 printer closes the gap between digital inkjet and traditional offset technology, offering a digital workflow that can help increase productivity, lower running costs and increase flexibility for variable data and short to medium run-length print jobs. The system incorporates paper handling features from Canon’s high volume large format equipment, resulting in unmatched printing productivity at more than 6,000 square feet per hour at a speed of 12 inches per second. In addition, ONYX Thrive print workflow software can be paired with the printer to meet even the most demanding color requirements.

Also on display will be the extremely versatile 44” Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8400S printer, which is ideal for print providers who need quality large format output and maximum productivity. Specially designed for the commercial photography, signage display, reprographic and proofing markets, the iPF8400S printer delivers consistently superb results while increasing overall production. A large color spectrum is produced by the 8-Color LUCIA EX pigment ink set, which also provides scratch resistance and smooth gradations. To expand printing options and capabilities, the iPF8400S printer comes bundled with Canon’s PosterArtist Lite software for easy poster creation, and an Accounting Manager tool that helps keep track of job cost.
