Oce Debuts the Fastest Large Format Color CAD Inkjet Printer on the Market

Thursday, May 11, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO, May 10 -- Oce, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, unveiled the new Oce TCS300 large format color and monochrome CAD inkjet printer in Booth # 401 at the IRgA 2006 Annual Convention and Trade Show held in Orlando, FL this week. Representing an economical investment for CAD users needing large format color and monochrome prints, the Oce TCS300 harnesses the power of fast, concurrent file processing with unmatched print speed at an extremely attractive price point. Its proprietary Oce Dynamic Switching Technology automatically optimizes print speed and print quality when printing lines, text and images in the same document. The result: fast turnaround times, streamlined workflow and consistently high quality at the highest rate of speed for the content being printed -- the benefits users have come to expect from Oce. The Oce TCS300 is ideally suited for a broad range of users seeking a productive, affordable printer that meets increasing demands for large format color CAD prints. This includes customers looking to purchase their first large format color CAD printer, those striving to enhance their FM service offerings, users who are experiencing annoying print queue delays with other commonly used inkjet printers and want to significantly increase their productivity, and others with high volume shops who want to upgrade older printers with superior speed and quality. "The Oce TCS300 puts color CAD printing in the fast lane," said Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Marketing, Oce Wide Format Printing Systems division of Oce North America. "It addresses the need for speed without sacrificing quality or budget. For users whose print queues have turned into traffic jams, the Oce TCS300 provides an environment where the printer is waiting for them -- not the other way around. Professional CAD users get the prints they need, when they need them -- every time." The Oce TCS300 shares the same core printing technologies as the recently introduced Oce TCS500 color print/copy/scan system. It is a printer-only configuration and is not upgradeable to a multifunction system. With the Oce TCS300, organizations now have a cost-effective printer with a robust design that ensures productive, efficient operation and low maintenance. The printer's ability to deliver concurrent file processing and printing -- coupled with an easy, intuitive user interface -- brings the benefits of fast turnaround, consistent print quality and minimal operator intervention. Featured Oce TCS300 Capabilities Fastest Printer on the Market The new Oce TCS300 is unsurpassed in color CAD print speed. It provides consistently high productivity with quick, efficient print delivery The Oce TCS300's ability to deliver one E-size color line drawing in just 60 seconds (or one D-size print in 30 seconds) or 120 D-size monochrome prints per hour is the fastest on the market today, helping users meet the tightest of print deadlines. Oce recognizes that high productivity is dependent upon more than print speed alone. To this end, the Oce Power Logic controller with a standard 80 GB hard drive -- the most powerful on the market -- processes large color files quickly and allows for concurrent processing of the next file while the previous file is printing, eliminating delays and increasing total throughput. The new printer also provides multiple roll support, with two rolls of media that allow for up to 600 feet of online media or two different media types or media sizes. Operators can load a new roll and even change ink tanks during the printing process -- all without interrupting workflow. Wait time after printing is also minimized as color CAD prints are ready for use immediately with no need for drying time or trimming. Uncompromising Quality with Oce Dynamic Switching Technology Users no longer have to sacrifice print speed for quality thanks to intelligent Oce Dynamic Switching Technology. This revolutionary new technology guarantees optimum print quality and optimal print speed when printing lines, text, and images in the same document, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual settings and operator trial and error. Oce Dynamic Switching technology delivers optimum print quality without sacrificing productivity. A range of convenient color management modes gives the user complete control of their color output. Best-in-Class Print Driver for Enhanced Back-Channel Communication Users benefit from a simple, intuitive user interface combined with best- in-class printer drivers that provide clear feedback about system status. From their desktops, users can readily view current media types and sizes loaded on the printer. With a clear "window" into which media is loaded, firms can reduce excess waste caused by printing on the wrong media, increase their overall printing accuracy and satisfy unforgiving deadlines. At the same time, operator intervention is minimized. Instead of babysitting printers and scrutinizing the output for errors, CAD users can focus on more productive tasks with greater peace of mind. Availability The new Oce TCS300 will be available in the US in June. For more information, call Oce at 800-714-4427.
