Turn Speed into Profitability
42" High-speed color print production
Beginning life as the concept Project Velocity presented for the first time at DRUPA® 2012, the Océ ColorWave® 900 high speed poster printer closes the gap between digital inkjet and traditional offset printing technology. Designed for the GA (Graphic Arts), AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction), and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) markets, this wide format poster printer offers a digital workflow that can help increase productivity, lower running costs and increase flexibility for variable data and short- to medium-run length print jobs.
The Océ ColorWave 900 poster printer has a raw print speed of more than 12,000 square feet per hour and is able to print a run length equivalent to the height of New York City's Freedom Tower in just 30 minutes. Delivering 3.4 billion, 1.2 picoliter drops of aqueous ink per second, the large format printing machine is able to produce resolutions of 1,600 x 1,600 dpi.
13,650 square feet (up to 650 feet per roll). The output is cut and delivered – dry and ready to use – into a high-capacity stacker, which features dual delivery trays for concurrent printing and unloading to further maximize uptime and increase productivity.
Flexible color management and professional workflow software are available through either the Océ PowerM® controller or ONYX® Thrive™ print workflow software. Additionally, an intuitive touch-screen interface enhances usability and simplifies routine tasks – saving time and reducing mistakes.
The Océ ColorWave 900 wide format poster printer is ideal for a vast range of applications including: point-of-sale (POS) posters; exhibition and trade show materials; counter and floor displays, and technical drawings and maps. It is an attractive proposition for wide format print service providers looking to increase print production capacity and for commercial printers looking for a powerful – yet economical – way to explore new revenue channels.
The concept behind the Océ ColorWave 900 poster printer is to leverage Canon's expertise in developing production print systems and integrate with high speed inkjet printing technology for large format applications. To deliver on this promise of speed, the Océ ColorWave 900 printer incorporates paper handling features from Canon's high volume large format equipment. This results in a printing machine capable of printing more than 6,000 square feet per hour at a speed of 12 inches per second.
Canon focused on creating a high volume printing system that minimized downtime due to loading paper or unloading finished prints. With up to six 42" x 650' rolls online – or 13,650 square feet – operators will spend minimal time changing rolls. In addition, a dual tray stacker enables operators to unload one job while another is still printing
When you open the papers drawers of the Océ ColorWave 900 printer you immediately notice the durable construction. The Océ line of large format inkjet printers is well known for its reliability and long production life, and this machine builds upon that reputation. The Océ CW900 is built to last in even the most demanding high-volume production printing environments.
Designed with exacting specifications this printer utilizes the Océ PowerM® controller to deliver repeatable results. In addition, ONYX® Thrive™ print workflow software can be paired with the machine to meet even the most demanding color requirements.
