Detailed Features

Productivity and flexibility for high-speed color production

The Océ ColorStream 3200 is the entry solution in the Océ ColorStream 3000 series printing at 48 meters per minute. It can be upgraded to the Océ ColorStream 3500 system that prints at 75 meters per minute, the Océ ColorStream 3700 at 100 meters per minute or even the Océ ColorStream 3900 printing at 127 meters per minute. That translates to 324, 505, 675 or 857 A4-size ppm (344, 537, 716, 909 letter) for a single unit or 648, 1010, 1350 or 1714 A4-size ppm (688, 1070, 1432, 1818 letter) for a twin configuration with maximum monthly print volumes up to 10, 16, 22 and 28 million A4 pages per month on a single system or up to 21, 33, 44 or 56 million A4 images per month on a twin system, all at a perceived print quality of 1200 dpi for images and halftones using the Multilevel capability of the Océ DigiDot technology. While the Océ ColorStream 3200 offers a maximum print width of 432 mm (17”) the Océ ColorStream 3500, 3700 and 3900 feature a maximum print width of 540 mm (21,25”).

Smart innovations for smart communication in color

Several smart features of the ColorStream 3000 Twin series enable a fast switch between long monochrome runs and full-color prints. The twin concept allows an easy entry into the world of inkjet printing by starting with a simplex mono version. The datacentre-infrastructure fit regarding size, weight and power supply as well as a seamless integration into existing environments with regards to workflow and finishing makes it easy to replace older toner-based continuous feed systems with the new ColorStream 3000 Twin series, thus accelerating the transition to color. The Océ ColorStream 3200 represented a new step to the transition to full color built on these capabilities with an ideal speed for a direct transition from toner to ink. With the ColorStream 3500 and 3700 mainstream productivity and throughput at high print quality is enabled. The Océ ColorStream 3900 accelerates the transition meeting the requirements of large print providers with its top speed combined with the smart innovations of the Océ ColorStream 3000 series.

Low risk innovation

The Océ ColorStream 3000 Twin series systems build on the best of Océ’s continuous feed technologies including the Océ DigiDot piezoelectric drop-on-demand technology, industry's fastest inkjet print heads to produce stunning color at top speeds, Océ SRA MP controller power and the flexibility of Océ VarioStream L-/H- or U-shape twin configurations. Together with the Océ service power and the investment protection and upgradability approach this ensures you a low risk innovation.
