S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • June 2019 • 75 High-Productivity Inkjet Press Canon U.S.A., Melville, New York, announces enhancements to the Océ ProStream Series. These fast, high-productivity continuous feed inkjet presses combine the vibrant colors of offset with the versatility of digital printing and can now handle a broader range of media than before, including postcards and magazine covers. Enhancements include the release of a new optional In-line Quality Control System enabled by a high-speed camera. This new option provides print quality feedback based on dedicated detection pat- terns and automatically initiates compensation measures, minimizing waste and operator intervention. In addition, Canon has enhanced the Océ ProStream with an even broader range of media, supporting paper weights up to 300gsm/300µm (~12pt), thanks to an enhanced paper transport and drying station. This feature enables custom- ers to produce applications, such as postcards or cover materials for catalogs or magazines, on a much wider scale. The intuitive, touch-operated press allows for fast, high- quality printing easily from a user's fingertips. For informa- tion, visit www.usa.canon.com. Small DTG-Capable Dryer Vastex International, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, intro- duces the world's smallest conveyor dryer matched to the output of Anajet, Brother, Epson, Polyprint and other DuPont- based DTG printing systems, depending on model size and image saturation. It was announced by Mark Vasilantone, president. Dubbed "LittleRed X1D," the compact dryer measures 18 x 48 in. (46 x 122 cm)—the dimensions of its conveyor belt—and is the first dryer with a heater that spans the entire belt width. The dryer can cure as many as 27 garments per hour DTG- printed with digital white ink, as well as screen-printed garments at rates to 81 per hour for water-based ink or dis- charge, and 162 per hour for plastisols. Curing of DTG-printed garments in an infrared conveyor dryer is said to eliminate the flattened, ironed-on appearance and halo associated with heat pressing of printed images, while eliminating the need for an operator to release the press after each cycle.
