Canon showcases world’s fastest wide format printer at SGI 2016

Canon OceCanon Middle East is showcasing its Océ ColorWave 910 printing system at the 19th edition of Sign & Graphic Imaging Middle East (SGI) at Dubai World Trade Centre

Regarded as the fastest wide format colour printer available in the market today, producing prints at raw speeds of over 1,000 sq m per hour, Océ ColorWave 910 is an ideal solution for those looking to boost their digital productivity for applications, including point-of-sale and event posters, maps and technical documents, the company said.

Unlike traditional large format inkjet systems, the Océ ColorWave 910 can maintain maximum productivity regardless of image content, ink coverage or media type.

Along with Océ ColorWave 910, Canon is also demonstrating its comprehensive range of wide format printers, which includes the Arizona 460GT UV-Flatbed that produces near-photographic image quality for printing on rigid or flexible media, Océ ColorWave 700 and the imagePROGRAF range that includes iPF6400s, iPF6450, iPF8400, iPF8400SE and iPF9400s.

The potential for signage is huge especially in countries like the UAE, which is highly committed to transform its cities into smart cities and fosters a demand for more exchange of information including digital signage. While the global digital signage market is expected to touch US$20.03bn by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, the UAE digital signage market is pegged to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 23 per cent over the next four years.

A noticeable growth in demands from interior décor and digital packaging industries is also causing manufacturers to create newer and better technology.

Hendrik Verbrugghe, marketing director at Canon Middle East, said, “Sign and graphic imaging industry is faced with the challenge of commoditisation, with consumers expecting organisations to provide them with faster print runs and personalised prints. Expanded range of printing substrate is a growing need and advanced graphical capabilities in imaging and display technologies are demanding printing to be done having a high level of quality. We are extremely delighted to showcase our innovative printing range such as the Océ ColorWave 910, which we feel is perfectly poised to tackle these demands.

The SGI 2016 will take place from 10-12 January 2016.
