A tour of the Océ JetStream series with Michael Poulin

Published on August 11, 2011

JetStream Product Manager Michael Poulin highlights some of the features and functions of the new JetStream 1400 and 3000 series.

Hi, I’m Michael Poulin.  I’m the Product Manager for the Oce Jet Stream series of full color inkjet printers.  I’m going to take a few minutes and walk you through some of the features and functions, especially highlighting our new Jet Stream 1400 and Jet Stream 3000.

So this is the current flagship product which is the Jet Stream 2200.  This is part of the Jet Stream Dual Series.  We just announced last week at our Production Print Summit in Poing Germany the next generation of this which is the Jet Stream 3000 which is a 33% increase in speed over this system here.  This system here will run at about 500 feet per minute, full color, four over four full duplex.  The Jet Stream 3000 will run at 656 feet per minute, full color, duplex system.  

This particular system is the Jet Stream 2200 MICR which means we actually have four colors on the first engine and five color capability on the second engine.  In this case, in that fifth color we’re using inkjet MICR.  Oce was the first to introduce jetable inkjet MICR into this market and this system is the result of that.  We can now incorporate this using a full whitepaper solution, whitepaper in and have a fully composed MICR check with all of the color background and security features fully integrated in one pass.  

So this is the Jet Stream 1000, part of the compact series.  And the reason its called the compact series is its compact.  The way we do that is we actually incorporate two print engines into one box.  So the two print engines are the upper and the lower, the simplex and duplex, and in this particular model the compact series is capable of up to six colors per engine.  So we actually have CMYK plus two empty spots so we can go up to a six over six.  There’s two additional spots can be a spot color, they can be MICR just as in the dual series, they can be specialty inks.  With this system especially, you have a lot of options to you.  With these inks we can run both a dye or a pigment.  Again, across all of the Jet Stream product line and the Color Stream product line, both dye inks and pigment inks are available.

One of the key features with the Jet Stream series and the Jet Stream family is that even though we have multiple platforms, many different speeds, many different models and configurations, they’re all using the same print head.  Universally, we use a 600 by 600 DPI resolution for all speeds, all models.  So we never sacrifice quality for speed.  

Starting out with this engine running at 250 feet per minute, its scalable to the next engine which is running at 330.  We also have the additional platform which starts at 330 feet per minute and scalable up to 660 and the wide platforms which are also scalable.  All running the same workflow, same print heads, same ink so that you have consistency across all model lines.
