Michael Poulin of Océ on the Capabilities and Applications of the ColorStream Inkjet 3000 Series

Published on June 11, 2012

Hello.  My name is Michael Poulin.  I’m the Product Manager for the Océ Color Stream 3000 Series Digital Inkjet Presses.  

We started the series back in January, 2011, when we announced the Color Stream 3500.  Here at drupa, we announced two more, the 3200 and the 3900, and a few months ago we announced the Color Stream 3700.  So, all in all, we have four different model numbers.  The ranges on the 3200 is about 154 feet per minute; they go all the way up to 417 feet per minute on the Color Stream 390, so, really a complete series.  

All of them, some of the key features are, they’re fully monochrome capable up to four colors and then we have two additional colors where we can add; spot colors, micer, specialty inks.  So all in all, up to six colors.  Every system is upgradable from monochrome to six colors; every system is upgradable from the lowest speed to the highest speed.  So really, a good investment protection for customers that are starting on the lower end as their volumes build or as their color volumes build, they can add and in the future go to the higher speeds.  

Some of the applications for a system like this range from the transactional statement work to the direct mail.  We have systems in the book printing industry.  Worldwide, we have over 300 inkjet systems installed with Océ, we are the market leaders.  For the Color Stream platforms, about a third of those are Color Streams and considering this system was launched only a little over a year ago, that’s a remarkable timeframe to install that many systems.  

These applications today, we’re running a customer loyalty program, so it’s a French supermarket chain, every one of the applications we’re showing here at drupa are real live customer applications.  So to a French supermarket chain, they have a loyalty program, in it they have a little coupon, there’s a tear-off coupon, so we’re also going into a variable perforator punch unit going into a cutter unit and from there it goes out.  

Other applications we’re having at the show, we have a booklet maker at the end of this so we have a variable data booklet that’s coming in, we’re collating the sheets and creating booklets as well.  We have some live direct mail applications as well and some books ranging from children’s books to traditional trade books as well.  

So with the wide variety of applications that we’re showing today from the direct mail to transactional, transpromo, books, graphic arts, combine that with all the new systems we’re offering, the 3200, the 3500, the 3700, and now the 3900, we really do offer a variety of systems to really meet our customer’s needs.
