Océ unveils CS9300 series of eco-solvent printers
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
Océ has expanded its range of wide-format, eco-solvent printers for outdoor poster, display and signage applications, with the launch of the CS9300 series.
The series comprises the 1,625mm CS9360 and 1,371mm CS9350, which join the manufacturer's mid-range CS9160 and its entry-level CS9050 machine.
The new iterations offer speed upgrades on the previous models, with the CS9360 capable of printing at 29sqm an hour, a 60% increase on the 18sqm/hr CS9160.
Océ's CS9350 nearly doubles the output rate of the 14sqm/hr entry-level CS9050, with print speeds on the new model reaching an hourly maximum of 27.9sqm.
Capable of printing at resolutions up to 1,440dpi using drop-on-demand, micro piezoelectric inkjet heads, both models offer four-colour production.
Océ Display Graphics Systems chief executive Attilio Mainoli said: "This refreshed line of printers brings more productivity to print service providers that produce outdoor-durable work.
"There are still many applications that are well-served by eco-solvent printers, particularly in the growing out-of-home advertising category, which includes items such as posters, transit advertising and convenience store advertising."
