Océ has extended its continuous feed portfolio with the launch of the new Océ JetStream 1900 printing system. This innovative printer is part of the Océ JetStream Compact series, offering highest versatility at minimal footprint.
The new Océ JetStream 1900 system offers a printing speed of 127 mpm in digital full color. A member of the scalable Océ JetStream Compact series of high-volume duplex printers, the Océ JetStream 1900 expands the range from two field upgradeable speed bands of 75 and 100 to even faster 127 mpm by increasing productivity by more than 25 percent. This makes the Océ JetStream 1900, the high-end product of the Océ JetStream Compact series, the ideal solution for cost-effective personalized, full color printing.
For print jobs with short production windows and tight cost constraints, the performance mode of the Océ JetStream 1900 operates at 127 mpm (417 fpm), which translates to 1,714 A4 (1,818 letter) images per minute, at 600 x 480 dpi resolution and multilevel dot modulation. For top quality requirements, the premium mode enables printing at 1,200 dpi perceived image quality with 100 mpm (326 fpm) or 1,350 A4 (1,428 letter) images per minute.
Transactional applications, direct mail documents or short-run newspapers are often characterized by tight production windows and very high peak loads. This is where the Océ JetStream 1900 reveals its strengths and economic advantages. For cost-effective production, the performance mode facilitates substantial ink savings. Users also benefit from the reliability, print quality and media range associated with the Océ JetStream family.
"The majority of print providers start with moderate digital print volume," says Sebastian Landesberger, Executive Vice President, Océ Production Printing. "They often need to invest in additional equipment to handle growing printing demands. With the Océ JetStream Compact series, customers can keep pace with changing business needs. This leads to a decisive investment protection of high volume digital print equipment.
Crit Driessen, Vice President Marketing and Strategy, Océ Production Printing, adds: "The Océ JetStream 1900 offers the highest level of scalability. And it unites the high quality and versatility of all Océ JetStream Compact series inkjet printers with the peak-load capacity of a high-volume printer. This makes the Océ JetStream 1900 the most complete continuous feed inkjet system in the market."
All members of the Océ JetStream family, including the new high-speed Océ JetStream 1900, are based on core technologies such as the field-proven Océ DigiDot and the Océ SRA MP controller architecture. The SRA MP is ideal for rigorous high-speed, full color digital printing. This supports a clear growth path and compatible workflow across all Océ JetStream engines.
Océ JetStream 1900 placements are planned for early 2012. Océ JetStream 1400 customers will be offered an upgrade option to the Océ JetStream 1900, enabling them to benefit from versatility in quality and performance.
