Océ has announced the Océ PlotWave 300 system, a monochrome multifunction system that prints, copies, and scans low volumes of technical documents.
This new system addresses the trend to decentralized printing that we are seeing in technical documentation. In such an environment, systems must be easy to use, energy efficient and quiet, instantly ready to print when needed, and able to withstand the workload of multiple users,” says Patrick Chapuis, president Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. “The Océ PlotWave 300 system, with its simple operation, energy efficiency, and durable design, satisfies all these needs better than any other product in its class.”
The Océ Plot Wave 300 printer incorporates Océ Radiant Fusing technology to efficient fuse toner onto paper. Thin metallic tiles are used to radiate heat so they heat up and cool down very quickly. According to the company, that means the system starts up instantly, uses half the energy of comparable systems, makes no noise when it is idling, and requires no extra ventilation to keep it cool. The system also uses a catalytic convertor system to reduce ozone emissions.
The system has a USB flash drive that lets users print and scan documents at the system. The output delivery tray is positioned on top of the system and uses air separation to prevent paper from curling and falling to the floor. The automated roll changing system automatically loads, cuts, and registers the size of the paper, and its loading station eliminates the need for an extra table next to the machine. Scanning originals are fed in face-up, and the width is automatically registered to reduce scanning errors.
U.S. deliveries of the Océ PlotWave 300 system will begin in May.
