New Models Expand Range of Breakthrough Océ JetStream Color Ink-jet Family
TRUMBULL, CT/DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY—May 29, 2008—Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, announced the introduction of three new models in the groundbreaking high-speed Océ JetStream full-color inkjet line. The Océ JetStream family now offers high quality full-color output speeds ranging from 675 to 2,700 A4 ipm, with easy upgradability throughout the family.
The Océ JetStream series redefined productivity and quality standards for ultra-high-volume, full-color production printing when it was introduced in 2007. The newly expanded Océ JetStream portfolio is positioned to meet customer requirements in terms of color quality, speed and duty cycles. The latest models expand the entry points for print operations that want to adopt the Océ JetStream platform for direct mail, transaction, TransPromo and other applications needing fast, outstanding black and white or color quality. The groundbreaking series was launched in 2007 with the 492 feet per minute (fpm) Océ JetStream 1100 single-engine system and the Océ JetStream 2200 twin system. Now the Océ JetStream 1100 and Océ JetStream 2200 models are joined by the new Océ JetStream 750, Océ JetStream 1500 and Océ JetStream 3000 systems.
With its 328 fpm speed, the new Océ JetStream 750 system is the entry-level model in the Océ JetStream family. It can deliver up to 714 full color letter-size ipm at 600x600 dpi. The new Océ JetStream 1500 produces 1,428 full-color letter-size ipm in two-up duplex format.
Rounding out the family at the high end is the new Océ JetStream 3000 system at 656 fpm with a resolution of 480x600 dpi, making it the one of the world’s fastest full-color digital printers in its class. The Océ JetStream 3000 system can blaze through jobs at a rate of 2,865 full-color letter-size ipm in two-up duplex format. This is equivalent to a duty cycle of up to 86 million pages per month and a monthly paper throughput of more than twenty million feet per month. The new Océ JetStream 3000 system can deliver 600x600 dpi at 150 mpm providing additional flexibility to meet customer requirements for exceptional quality. The series uses Océ DigiDot™ piezoelectric ink-jet technology, which varies drop sizes to deliver brilliant images, smoother halftones, stunning color and superior page coverage.
“The market response to the Océ JetStream platform has been very good. Customers now have a wider range of options to help grow their business with full color inkjet printing. The attractive price point of the Océ JetStream technology enables advanced color capabilities that are in high demand in the marketplace,” said Sebastian Landesberger, Executive Vice President Production Printing. “As with the other Océ JetStream models, the new systems are upgradeable, ensuring investment protection as well as room to expand capabilities. With the Océ JetStream family, customers can be confident that the Océ platform can grow with them. A customer could actually launch their full-color ink-jet services with an Océ JetStream 750 system and grow into the maximum speed of an Océ JetStream 3000 system.”
Powered by an Océ SRA MP controller, Océ JetStream printers are designed for seamless integration with industry-standard workflows and the rigorous demands and data rates of high-speed full-color printing. As a result, companies will find it easier to launch new applications such as personalization and TransPromo documents into existing IPDS workflows and document processes. With powerful Océ PRISMA workflow software and connectivity to other proven front-end products, the Océ JetStream system performs in any environment without changing the workflow set up.
The Océ JetStream systems offer an integrated roll-to-roll configuration with a tight web for precise registration and control. Paper processing options include a cross perforation device for folding and a punch unit for pin feed holes. Optional roll slitter and folding units increase finishing options. Integrated finishing allows seamless workflow automation for uninterrupted production.
Océ JetStream systems are already in use for direct mail, transaction and other applications. Service bureaus, graphic arts operations, direct mail houses, offset printers and other commercial and corporate printers can deliver full-color, variable data output with exceptional quality at high speeds and maximum productivity. Customers benefit from lower operating costs, longer uptime and a wider range of paper choices than comparable products.
