Océ has announced the new Océ ColorStream 3700 digital full-color inkjet printing system, enlarging the highly successful Océ Inkjet product portfolio. With the addition of the Océ ColorStream 3700, the Océ inkjet family extends the company's leadership in the digital full-color inkjet segment and helps a wider range of print providers make the transition from toner systems, other inkjet platforms or offset printing to high-speed digital printing.
The new Océ ColorStream 3700 joins the market-leading Océ inkjet portfolio, spearheaded by the Océ ColorStream 3500 as part of the fastest growing inkjet portfolio in the industry. Merely one year after the global launch of this visionary yet low risk innovation, the Océ ColorStream 3500 obtained a market-leading position, especially in the datacenter and print service provider environments. The combination of highest inkjet productivity built on the Océ DigiDot heads and proven Océ flexibility and efficiency offer a total package unmatched in the industry.
The new Océ ColorStream 3700 further extends the reach of the Océ inkjet systems as solution for monochrome and full-color high volume print service provider environments, print centers with datacenter background and offset print providers seeking a flexible and efficient high-volume digital printing solution. The availability of a higher speed version permits customers to complete more jobs within tighter production windows, providing additional capacities to grow their print volume.
High-speed Full-color Model in the Océ ColorStream Twin Series
The Océ ColorStream 3700 is the high-speed model in the Océ ColorStream Twin series and offers a process speed of 100 meters per minute with a print and paper width of 21,25" (approx. 540 mm). That translates to 675 A4 impressions per minute (716 letter sized) for a single unit or in a twin configuration, 1350 A4 impressions per minute (1432 letter sized) for monthly volumes of up to 46 million A4 pages (43 million letter sized).
While increasing the productivity, the Océ ColorStream 3700 offers all features known from the Océ ColorStream 3500. Through the HeadSafe concept, the Océ ColorStream 3700 is the first high-volume inkjet system offering users of high-speed high-quality monochrome toner-based solutions an extremely efficient 1:1 comparable inkjet solution. The Océ ColorStream 3700 allows a direct transition to full-color inkjet as well as a smooth and slow migration starting with high monochrome print volumes without tedious manual cleaning when switching to full color after longer periods of monochrome printing.
Easy Transition into High-speed Digital Inkjet Printing
"The Océ ColorStream 3700 represents an evolution of the Océ ColorStream 3500 which sky-rocketed to the market-leading product in Europe in less than one year," notes Sebastian Landesberger, Executive Vice President, Océ Production Printing. "Offering a combination of the unique capabilities of the Océ ColorStream 3500 – including paper waste free pauses and the extraordinary HeadSafe concept with enhanced productivity – the Océ ColorStream 3700 will help our customers meet tight deadlines with quality print products. The Océ ColorStream 3700 proposition of higher speed at consistent quality will support an even wider range of print providers to make the transition from offset- or toner-based printing into high-speed inkjet printing."
Additional exclusive features such as printing in speed ramps which allows page one quality printing or the paper waste-free print pause significantly increase the productivity and sustainability of the Océ ColorStream 3700. Apart from the saved, not wasted resources a significant boost of the total production workflow and value chain is achieved as no wasted, white pages have to be handled in the later post processing steps.
