Continuous Feed Presses Color
Quality, productivity, versatility
The ProStream merges the best of digital and offset printing. You’ll find offset-quality print along with the high productivity and flexibility of inkjet.
Take over previously offset-printed jobs and improve cost or personalize. Get ahead of the crowd by stepping up the quality in your digital work. Enable your customers wider reach by expanding campaign sizes. With the ProStream, you can offer your customers high-quality, 1200 dpi output with the cost efficiency and variable value-add of inkjet.
Delivering to the point – every time
The ProStream is an inkjet engine with outstanding print quality. It prints fully variable content on a wide range of uncoated, treated, and matte, silk, or gloss coated papers. It produces up to 1,144 letter-size or 35 million pages per month in 2-up duplex production speed at a speed of 262 ft/min. It follows in the footsteps of the other web-fed engines by Océ, which are well-known for their reliability, stability, and uptime.
Professional, attention-grabbing prints
The ProStream has a revolutionary new engine design with the latest generation piezo drop-on-demand print head, our proprietary ColorGrip, and a new polymer pigment ink set. The results of that combination of innovations are vibrant colors, smooth shadings, and ultra-fine details – even in dark tones. With extremely high-quality output, the question is no longer what will you print, but what can’t you print with inkjet.
No-touch super-sensitive drying
Canon has broken new ground with the floatation drying technology unique to the ProStream. The web is kept free-floating for optimal image quality, process control, and consistency – on a very wide range of media. The result is an appealing look and feel, flatlaying prints, and homogeneous gloss levels.
Integrate efficiency into your workflows
PRISMAproduction and SRA MP controller from Canon technology have become the efficiency benchmark in heavy-volume variable content printing. The ProStream can also be directly integrated into your PDF workflows with the new PRISMAcontrol digital front end. And let’s not forget the many connectable adjacent systems, to manage anything from content creation to tracking and tracing. Either way, you have the flexibility to manage your production at the engine – right where it happens!
