Oce releases new commercial poster printer

November 12, 2011 by  

Océ, a division of Canon located in Raleigh, North Carolina, recently released a color poster printer for distribution in the United States. The printer is able to produce retail quality high production poster printing in a much more cost effective manner.

The printer uses special imaging technology so that the output is instantly dry and water resistant and cut to the required size and available to be used immediately. The printer can be loaded with up to six rolls or media that range in size from 11 to 42 inches, so poster printing can be done in different media such as inexpensive uncoated bond paper to specialty media as well as in varying sizes without the need to change the media between print jobs or to manually cut jobs that are a standard size.

As opposed to using inkjet printers for poster printing, which require individual attention for each print job, this poster printer can run unattended continuously without the need to change media or cut print jobs to a specific size. It has an ergonomic design so that all the functional areas of the printer can be easily accessed by an operator standing in one spot. A touch screen panel is used to control the major features of the printer.

The printer has been designed to be used by digital print providers, offset printers and retailers to provide a quick turnaround for event materials and poster printing. It prints at a speed of 926 square feet per hour of roll-to-sheet output and can collate printing jobs so an entire project that might include banners, flyers and posters can be printed in a single business day and help print providers to better meet client deadlines.
