Océ PlotWave 350 Printing System Offers New Printing Flexibility and Speed for Technical Users
February 9, 2012, Trumbull, CT Océ, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced that the new Océ PlotWave® 350 monochrome printer offers new mobile printing flexibility and higher speed for technical users to print, copy and scan low volumes of technical documents. This fast and flexible large format system helps businesses save time and money on their document production.
"We developed this new system to address the needs of walk-up users in decentralized environments who require on-demand print, copy, and scan functionality," said Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Marketing for the Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. "These users look for ease-of-use with minimal system interaction to generate their technical document output, whether at the system, from their workstation, or from their WiFi enabled device. And in the current economic climate, companies are also looking to get more productivity from these systems. The Océ PlotWave 350 system is designed for maximum uptime and availability."
The Next Wave in Flexibility, Speed and Reliability
The Océ PlotWave 350 multifunction system builds on the award-winning success of the Océ PlotWave 300 multifunction system. It has been enhanced with over 50 new improvements that offer the next wave in wide format printing, copying and color scanning. It is based on decades of experience and offers proven features from a number of award-winning technical document printing systems from Océ.
Users Can Now Print From Mobile Devices
Many decisions in the technical world are made on site, and documents need to be updated and produced on the fly. With the new Océ Mobile WebTools software, users that have access to a WiFi router on their network can retrieve technical files from their cloud using their mobile phone or computer and send a print request to their printer. That means the printer is ready for new mobile workflows. Users can print from and scan documents to a USB flash drive or to their mobile devices using Océ Mobile WebTools software to capture changes and documents on the go or print via Océ Publisher Select software to produce documents for complex projects.
Prints Up to Six D-Size Plots a Minute without Long Delays
With conventional roller-based systems, users have to make a trade-off between energy consumption and getting a fast first print. These systems require long warm-up and cool-down periods, which waste time and energy. The Océ Plot Wave 350 printer incorporates an enhanced version of the unique energy efficient Océ Radiant Fusing technology. It can print up to six D-size plots in one minute with virtually no warm-up time. Compared to conventional printers, which can take up to four minutes to warm-up, this can easily save a typical small office considerable time in printing delays. Even though the system is faster compared to its predecessor, its energy consumption per print stays the same.
To reduce costly mistakes, the brand new Océ Print Driver 2.0 for Microsoft® Windows® has been added to this system. Its straightforward design makes it much easier to print complex drawings correctly the first time. It includes a "What You See is What You Print" preview that clearly highlights potential errors that might occur with a selection. This includes misplaced fold lines or an error in the size of the document. Users can easily correct their selection and avoid costly mistakes and wasted time.
Reliable Construction Can Help Cut Costs and Increase Profits
With over 50 new components, the Océ PlotWave 350 printing system provides outstanding performance to meet the challenging needs of busy offices in the architectural, construction and engineering fields.
The Océ PlotWave 350 system is constructed of solid, hard-wearing materials. Critical components, such as the imaging drum and other moving parts, are completely enclosed to reduce contamination and wear and tear. High use parts, like the paper drawers and panels, are made of reinforced materials to protect them from contact with dust and extend their lifetime. The separate paper paths help reduce paper jams and extra wear on the system.
