It is some great news to hear that Canon has entered the digital label printing industry. For those who don’t understand what digital label printing is, it is the process of transferring an image or document from a computer onto some printing media like paper or polypropylene.
Canon has been doing well in the camera market as well as the printing industry, and in early July 2018, they launched the Oce LabelStream 4000 that comes with Canon inkjet cartridges. Two British firms, Edale and FFEI, worked hand-to-hand to make the device a reality.
The vice president and the and head of digital packaging, Crit Driessen, said that the device was a significant step for Oce and Canon. The White+CMYK UV inkjet press is designed to be modular and can be purchased as pure digital standalone press, a fully hybrid configuration with flexo units, or digital press that has inline finishing.
LabelStream 4000 with its Canon inkjet cartridges is vital for a printer’s specific needs and with its configuration, it allows maximum productivity. Moreover, the device has helped Canon establish itself and build a presence in the printing market. According to Christian Unterberger, the chief marketing officer, the new Oce LabelStream 4000 series is seen as the advancement of their market strategy.
The Oce LabelStream 4000 series will be available in Europe in the last quarter of 2018 and will enter the US market later on. Canon’s main goal is to enhance productivity as well as grow revenue with their digital printing presses. As a printer, this is an amazing device that you will want to own.
