Oce Expands Digital Color Offering with CPS900 Printer
Press release from the issuing company
New York City—March 22, 2004—Oce, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, announces the further expansion of the Océ color family with the addition of the new Océ CPS900 color production system. With the new Océ CPS900 customers gain dramatically improved image quality. The Océ CPS line has established itself as the only digital platform able to deliver consistent production-level color across every page, job and device. The Océ CPS900 joins the Océ CPS700 to bring customers a flexible growth path for achieving higher-quality color output and higher productivity.
Customers today must produce a wide variety of applications on different types of substrates, and Océ responds to this need with a new product to meet the changing requirements of the market. The Océ CPS900 enhances the Océ CPS product line by adding a device that offers greater hourly production, along with near offset quality, consistent output and one of the lowest total cost of ownership of any color output device.
“We successfully introduced the unique capabilities of the Océ CPS family with the Océ CPS700. Now with the Océ CPS900, we are building on that foundation and giving customers more choices to accommodate the ways they want to work with color,“ said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ North America’s Digital Document Systems Division. “With color consistency without calibration, no speed reductions across media types, and its work-effective design, the Océ CPS900 contributes to significant productivity gains for professional color document production.”
Expanding the choices available within the Océ CPS family, the printer-only Océ CPS900 runs at 1800 impression per hour (30 ppm). Paper capacity has also been more than doubled for the Océ CPS900. Improvements to image quality result from the 600x2400 dpi output on the Océ CPS900, providing more line screening alternatives, and additional toner enhancements are included. Designed for flexible finishing device connectivity, customers can connect the Océ CPS900 to a range of Océ and third-party machines.
Two new high performance controllers based on industry-leading EFI Fiery software will be available to drive the production-class performance of the Océ CPS900. Customers choose the one best suited to their output requirements, file complexity, workflow, appropriate software, or specific applications such as variable data printing. The controllers process all common file formats and data streams typically found in graphics, commercial and corporate printing environments, while achieving the highest levels of production. Both enable high-speed network printing, with a user interface that operators can easily manage. These flexible controllers support specialized software options such as greater job control, advanced color management, specialized job submission and editing, and extensive variable data printing support.
Exclusive Océ Direct Imaging technology is responsible for the printer’s consistent, high quality color output. Each image is created in a single step, and enhanced patented Océ Color Copy Press technology presses a complete seven-color toner image onto the paper in one pass for crisp, uniform color with an offset look and feel.
The Océ CPS900 prints consistently across a wide range of media at full engine speed. Users can choose embossed, textured or coated paper, and overhead sheets in various formats. The heavy-duty system also supports heavier media—up to 140 lb index or 80 lb cover stock—with full productivity. Users can produce up to 1,000 sheets at one time to achieve faster, uninterrupted workflow for larger jobs. Duplexing is done automatically to further reduce interruptions, and with one of the shortest paper paths in the industry, the Océ CPS900 drives even more productivity by minimizing paper jams.
The Océ CPS900 sports a sleek, ergonomic design with a desktop-like surface that creates a work area that is more efficient, comfortable and provides greater productivity, while being very environmentally friendly.
The new Océ CPS900 system will be generally available in May of 2004.
