For Mark Pageau, Director of Sales at Darwill, it’s all about giving customers increased flexibility with messaging and time to market. “This gives them the advantage of doing variable and graphics in any color they would like,” he said. “Customers no longer have to be restricted by pre-printed rolls. They can put something into play, and we can be printing it as soon as the job is approved.”
Van Dyke sums it up, “We really can’t do what we want to do without the Océ ColorStream 3500 system.”
About the Océ ColorStream 3500 Inkjet Printing System
The Océ ColorStream 3500 inkjet printing system was unveiled at Canon Expo in Tokyo in November 2010. The high-speed, high-quality, full-color inkjet printer simplifies the transition from monochrome to full-color or even five or six colors. It offers productivity and flexibility for high-speed color and monochrome production of transaction, transpromo, direct mail, book and manual applications. Industry-leading reliability, print quality and media range are testaments to Océ DigiDot multilevel dot modulation technology.
Enhanced usability and productivity is made possible by a combination of unique features:
• HeadSafe technology helps prevent nozzle clogging and minimizes lengthy purging processes. The ability to transition between monochrome-only and full-color printing promotes higher uptime and productivity levels.
• Using passive RFID technology, the Océ InkSafe® feature monitors both the proper placement of the ink containers in the press and the ink’s shelf-life.
• The Océ ColorStream 3500 inkjet printing system provides consistent high-quality printing. The ability to print at varying speeds during ramp-up acceleration and ramp-down deceleration phases and to stop and restart without paper waste, increases operational efficiency and decreases turn-around time.
The Océ ColorStream 3500 inkjet printing system provides a modular offering in various single and twin configurations from monochrome to full-color up to six color including MICR and spot colors. The production and media flexibility contribute to a future-proof solution that simplifies the transition of applications and business models to more sophisticated documents with variable personalization and smarter communication in color.
