Océ's ColorStream 3200 and ColorStream 3900 digital full-color inkjet printing systems from Canon Solutions America will help print providers to easily make their transition to digital full color at their own pace.
The Océ ColorStream 3000 series inkjet printing systems provide a modular offering in various single and twin configurations with four different printing speeds ranging from 48 to 127 m/min. A full-color Océ ColorStream 3000 series system can be set up as a monochrome-only system when needed. They offer productivity and flexibility for high-speed color and monochrome production of transaction, TransPromo, direct mail, book and manual applications.
With the new basic model ColorStream 3200 Océ lowers the entry-barrier into cost-efficient inkjet printing especially for transactional print providers. Customers that just require a print width of 17 inches (about 432 mm) and do not have print volumes to justify the investment in current inkjet offerings now have a lower investment level solution. They can start with a slower speed of 48 m/min (648 A4 or 688 letter size images) and upgrade to the faster Océ ColorStream 3000 series speeds when required. Especially print providers that are looking for an efficient way of full-color inkjet printing can now replace toner-based continuous feed systems with a comparable speed inkjet solution. A large amount of the installed toner-based systems only require the 2-up A4 print width of 17 inches and are in a productivity segment of up to approx. 20 million images a month, which the Océ ColorStream 3200 is able to deliver.
The Océ ColorStream 3900 is the new top-speed model in the Océ ColorStream 3000 series and offers a process speed of 127 meters per minute. That translates to 857 A4 images per minute (909 letter sized) for a single unit or to 1714 A4 impressions per minute (1818 letter sized) in a twin configuration. Monthly volumes of up to 56 million A4 images (59 million letter sized images) can be achieved.
The Océ ColorStream 3900 features two production modes. For print jobs with short production windows and tight cost constraints, the performance mode of the Océ ColorStream 3900 operates at 127 meters per minute (417 fpm), at 600 x 480 dpi resolution with multilevel dot modulation, producing excellent quality at top speed. For even higher quality requirements, the premium mode enables printing at 1200 dpi perceived image quality with 100 meters per minute (326 fpm) or 1350 A4 (1,428 letter) images per minute.
