The Océ ProStream prints uncoated, inkjet-optimized, gloss, and matte-coated papers at premium quality at a rate of 80 meters per minute. It targets a range of commercial applications including transactional, direct mail, books, collateral, catalogs, and magazines.
The new ProStream features the latest piezoelectric drop-on-demand inkjet printhead technology leveraged with Océ Multilevel technology for sharper details, smoother half tones, and economized ink usage. Additionally, the Océ-developed ColorGrip and polymer pigment inks creates vibrant colors. New printheads deliver 1,200 dpi. It also offers a new drying system.
The Océ ProStream technology is positioned to provide quality, media flexibility, variable content, and productivity. With this release, the company has three goals—first, to gain more share of existing segments and applications; second—to achieve new market/customer acquisitions; and three—to maintain its market share in the continuous feed inkjet market.
The Océ ProStream technology combines several core technologies for continuous feed inkjet and builds on a decade of experience in inkjet with the Océ JetStream, Océ ColorStream, and Océ VarioPrint i300. Within this product lineup, the Océ ProStream is suited to serve a range of applications from mid- to high-volume on coated and uncoated media. To put it into perspective against its existing portfolio, the Océ ColorStream and JetStream devices are focused on uncoated and inkjet media, primarily targeting books, direct mail, and transactional applications. The Océ ImageStream series offers efficient long runs for graphic arts applications including premium direct mail, collateral, and magazines and catalogs. Finally, the Océ VarioPrint i300 serves complex, mixed media jobs and short runs.
“We are confident that the Océ ProStream series will continue to drive our success in our competitive market,” concludes Christian Unterberger, EVP, production printing products and CMO, Océ, a Canon Group Company.
