The Océ CS9000 series roll based inkjet printers, including the new Océ CS9060 64-inch wide printer, will also be producing prints using odor free, eco-solvent ink that features up to 3 year outdoor durability. The output from these products will then be cut with the Zünd L-2500 automated contour cutting solution. The printers, digital cutting table and software for preparing and interpreting the cutting data provide a complete digital system that streamlines the workflow - from prepress to finishing - of rigid and flexible display graphics media.
For technical drawings and mapping applications, attendees will see the Océ TDS700 large-format monochrome printer, a highly productive, mid-volume system that prints, copies and scans technical documents quickly and with exceptional quality.
