Océ Introduces Velocity
Incorporates the same six-media-roll capacity of Océ’s ColorWave 600/650.
Océ has debuted its Velocity concept printer, developed in conjunction with Memjet. The 42-in. printer mates high-speed Memjet inkjet technology with Océ workflow to print up to 500 A0 color prints/hr at 800 x 1600 dpi. Incorporating the same six-media-roll capacity of Océ’s ColorWave 600/650, the Velocity utilizes five Memjet inkjet printheads (each measuring 8.77-in. wide and each with 70,000 ink nozzles), applying more than 3 billion drops of ink per second. Based on market feedback, Océ will determine if and when Velocity will move to production phase. Océ also showcased the ColorWave 650 Poster Printer, a specialized version of its ColorWave 650. Aimed at the point-of-sale market, the 650 uses solid Océ TonerPearls toner and Océ CrystalPoint technology; it can print at speeds of 155 A1 sheets/hr.
