Oce CS9065 High Quality, Dual-Ink, Production Speed Inkjet Printer to Debut at OpenHouse

Press release from the issuing company

Poing, Germany , 27 March 2006 - Oce today introduced the Océ CS9065 high quality, production speed printer that can use either low-solvent or eco-solvent inks to create outdoor-durable prints. The dual-ink capability gives users flexibility in where the unit can be operated: in light industrial, print shop or office environments. The printer is on display here at Océ OpenHouse, March 27-31, in Poing, Germany. The Océ CS9065 (165 cm wide) is a high speed, high quality printing system that delivers outdoor durable output. The Océ CS9065 offers true 720 x 720 dpi resolution at print speeds up to 13 m2 per hour in production (four-pass) mode. In high speed (two-pass) mode print speeds up to 22 m2 per hour can be achieved with a resolution of 360 x 720 dpi. Top print speeds of up to 42 m2 per hour can be achieved at 360 x 360 dpi resolution. Dynamic Variable Dot Imaging Technology The Océ CS9065 offers superior print quality, speed and ink economy through the use of Dynamic Variable Dot Imaging Technology, the next evolution of piezo inkjet technology that enables a printhead to produce dots with variable sizes versus printheads using fixed dot technology. The use of Dynamic Variable Dot Imaging Technology has many advantages and results in the following customer benefits: Superior print quality: Finer details and smoother gradients in highlight areas and crisp colours in the mid-tones and shadows. Double the productivity: Four-colour printing is perfect for all application areas. It doubles the productivity of the Océ CS9065 because the use of two CMYK inksets doubles the number of printhead nozzles per color. Superior ink economy: The ink usage of the Océ CS9065 is significantly lower compared to the ink usage of six colour printers using fixed dot inkjet technology; 25 to 35 percent less ink is used. Ready for Long, Unattended Production Runs The Océ CS9065 is equipped with a motorized winder and unwinder unit enabling the use of bulk media rolls up to 100kg. The printer includes sophisticated self-maintenance systems on board. The required daily operator maintenance is limited to less than five minutes when low-solvent inks are used. Machines running eco-solvent inks require no daily operator maintenance. Low-solvent or Eco-solvent Inks The Océ CS9065 can be equipped with either low-solvent or eco-solvent inks. Low-solvent inks produce less solvent odor than full-solvent inks and offer excellent outdoor durability up to 3 years. An optional Air Purification system is available to ensure a clean and safe working environment. By actively filtering the air coming from the printer, the solvent levels in the working area are far below acceptable safety levels. Eco-solvent inks offers customers the outdoor benefits of solvent inks, while making it possible to use the printers in a regular office or small print shop environment without the need for an Air Purification System. Coated and uncoated media can be used, for indoor and short- to mid-term outdoor applications. The Océ CS9065 is ideal for short run print jobs and is designed for light production environments where high quality output and outdoor durability are required. Sample applications include point-of-purchase displays, vehicle graphics, transit advertising, exhibit graphics, banners, museum graphics, wayfinding and window displays. Availability The Océ CS9065 is expected to be available for customer shipment worldwide in the second quarter of 2006. For more information, contact your local Océ office.
