Velocity uses the highly accurate, six-roll media input technology from the successful Océ ColorWave 650 printer. The media input automatically switches between different rolls and media widths, providing a total capacity of 13,650 square feet feet. The Océ Double Decker Pro stacker, currently available on the Océ PlotWave 900 printer, is used to deliver the highest possible productivity. It has a dual tray system which allows unloading and printing to occur at the same time, which effectively allows the system to print 13,650 square feet of output without interruption. The Velocity concept features an intuitive touch screen control panel from the Océ VarioPrint 6000 series printer. It uses the Océ PowerM controller, color image processing and workflow components of the Océ ColorWave 650 family to further enhance and accelerate production. This concept also supports a true Adobe® PDF workflow.
Memjet delivers an entirely new category of technology that makes possible high-quality color printing at never-before seen speeds and affordability. Memjet does this by putting more than 70,000 ink nozzles on a single printhead – 17 times the density of traditional inkjet printheads. Memjet’s printhead is 8.77 inches wide. The design allows Memjet-powered printers to deliver more than 700 million drops of ink per second on a page. Memjet wide format technology combines five Memjet printheads to operate as one, firing more than 3 billion drops of ink per second.
Tim Greene of InfoTrends commented, “Velocity takes advantage of Océ's strengths such as paper handling for production environments, production workflow in the technical market and controller technology, and wraps them around Memjet's revolutionary technology and components. A partnership of this magnitude is very important to the global wide format market. It is set to change the competitive landscape overnight and how super-fast wide format print can -- and will -- be leveraged by printers and their customers.”
