Canon U.S.A., Inc. has launched the flash-fusing, toner-based Océ VarioStream 7170 and 7110 specialty printing systems. These entry-level, monochrome continuous feed solutions are aimed at corporate and commercial environments with low to mid-range volumes of transaction, direct mail, product instruction collateral and applications requiring special media.
“For customers desiring to drive unique specialty applications in black and white, the Océ VarioStream 7170 and 7110 solutions provide outstanding productivity and performance that is easy to operate and maintain,” said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Using these systems, Canon’s customers can expand the range of printing applications they can support, opening opportunities to provide additional print-related services to their respective clients.”
Smart, time-saving features such as automatic paper loading, can substantially reduce and simplify set-up time. Automatic resolution detection and switching further reduce operator intervention. Economical first page printing eliminates substantial special media waste over the printer’s lifetime.
In addition to standard paper, VarioStream 7170 non-contact flash-fusing technology allows users to process a wide range of special-media applications such as adhesive labels, thin paper or plastic ID cards, RFID tags and light-weight forms. The non-contact flash-fusing bonds the toner without heat transfer or exerting pressure, putting less strain on the paper and keeping it in outstanding condition for finishing.
The LED image generator delivers excellent output at up to 600 dpi with high-optical density for professional-grade text, graphics and barcodes and easily fulfills the tough legibility standards for 2D and 3D bar code printing.
In addition to the new Océ VarioStream 7170 system, a slower speed version will be available later in 2014. Running at 114-letter pages per minute two-up, the Océ VarioStream 7110 system will extend the speed choices within the Océ VarioStream product line. This monochrome printer will benefit customers needing the versatility of the 7170 model, but with a lower monthly print volume.
Shipments for the VarioStream 7170 are now available. The VarioStream 7110 will be available starting in September, 2014.
