Océ JetStream 1400 and 3000: Productivity boost of proven Océ JetStream series
A major growth factor of digital printing is the transition from offset to digital in key applications. Océ is committed to supporting its customers in taking this step and has designed two new models to complement the existing JetStream product family with higher printing speeds. This is a key factor for business success as production windows are becoming more narrow. The new Océ JetStream 1400 and 3000 inkjet printers are based on the key technologies of the field-proven Océ JetStream series and are both on display for the first time at the Océ Production Printing Summit.
The Océ JetStream 1400 offers full-width duplex printing in a single cabinet with speeds of 100 mpm producing 1350 A4 images per minute. This compact printer facilitates access to the production color arena for customers with limited floor space.
The Océ JetStream 3000 is the new top model of JetStream printers and allows an extraordinary speed of 200 mpm or 2,700 A4 images per minute at 20.3" paper width. It excels with its ultra-high monthly digital print volume. Both new Océ JetStream models come with 1200 dpi perceived image quality based on the proven 600 dpi 2-bit dot modulation.
The Summit will also feature Océ's latest inkjet innovation, the Océ ColorStream 3500 printer, enabling a shift from monochrome to full color with unparalleled cost efficiency. Also on show at the event are the highly successful toner-based Océ VarioStream 8000, Océ VarioStream 7120 and the Océ ColorStream 10000 Flex technologies. The digital high-performance show will be rounded off with production cutsheet solutions for digital monochrome and color printing such as the Océ VarioPrint 6000 and the Canon imagePRESS C7010VP printing systems.
