Océ Launches New ColorWave
Océ yesterday unveiled what it describes as “the world’s first single footprint multifunctional printer,” under the model name ColorWave 300. While the ColorWave 600 was introduced in mid-2009, this new machine, the 300, is unique in that it integrates technologies for printing, copying and scanning wide-format documents in both colour and black-and-white.
Designed primarily for the reproduction of technical documents, the ColorWave 300 is built with a 36-inch printing width and can reach 600 x 600 dpi. The machine can handle substrate weights of up to 175 g/m2.
Océ continues to explain that the ColorWave 300, which is based on thermal inkjet, is the first multifunctional wide-format printer with a truly integrated scanner.
The ColorWave 300 employs Océ’s Image Logic and Dynamic Switching technologies, working with most file formats – HP-Gl/2, PDF, DWF, JPEG. Users can also print and scan documents via a USB flash drive.
