Canon has sold its 10,000th Oce ColorWave wide format colour printer, ten years after the range and the Oce CrystalPoint technology on which it is based were introduced.
Combining attributes of both inkjet and toner technologies, Oce CrystalPoint produces crisp, high-quality, waterproof colour and black & white output, even on uncoated and recycled paper.
The durable, instant-dry prints are suitable for a wide range of applications, including CAD plots, maps, point of sale material and posters for both indoor and short-term outdoor use.
The current, third generation of Océ ColorWave devices includes the Océ ColorWave 500, optimised for CAD, maps and production applications in the manufacturing, architecture, construction, design and reprographics industries; and the Océ ColorWave 700, designed for organisations with higher print volumes, including reprographics, sign and display print providers and in-house printing departments in government, education and the retail and hospitality industries.
The multi-roll setup on both models enables users to switch between different jobs without having to swap rolls.
