TRUMBULL, Conn., Oct. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Oce, a Canon Group company and an international leader in digital document management, today announced the new Oce JetStream® 5500 mono printing system, further extending the Oce continuous feed inkjet portfolio. The Oce JetStream 5500 mono is the fastest printer of the Oce JetStream Wide mono series, giving the print provider new economies of scale and increased productivity.
The Oce JetStream 5500 mono inkjet printing system is an 833 feet-per-minute monochrome production printer with a 30" wide paper transport. It produces 5,450 letter images per minute at a resolution of 600 x 480 dpi with multilevel imaging technology representing the ultimate in productivity and print quality. This makes the Oce JetStream 5500 mono inkjet press the ideal solution for book, manual, newspaper and transaction printing. For example, trade books in the 6" x 9" format can be printed 4-up, allowing for maximum productivity. This reduces the cost per book produced and strongly drives the economies of scale in favor of the print provider.
Based on Field-Proven Oce Technologies
Oce, with experience gained from over 300 inkjet printers ordered and installed in the market, worldwide, continually improves its technology to ensure maximum productivity. In addition, the company continually strives to reduce maintenance time through simplification of mechanical processes. For example, the automated head cleaning unit, with fewer moving components, is just one of several improvements that help increase stability and productivity.
Continuous high-quality printing is achieved with the industry-proven Oce DigiDot® inkjet technology that generates 1200 dpi perceived image quality at up to 656 feet per minute and 600 x 480 dpi multilevel image quality at a speed of 833 feet per minute with either dye or pigment-based ink.
"The Oce JetStream 5500 mono printing system is an excellent choice for print providers who want to move their short- and medium-run book and document production from offset to digital printing," said Scott Robertz, Oce product marketing manager, Production Printing Systems division of Oce North America, a Canon Group company. "The combination of speed and print quality offers a very attractive value proposition."
Driving Performance at Maximum Speed
Oce PRISMAproduction® Software Suite output management system solution for digital web fed production printers, coupled with the Oce SRA® MP controller with its unrivalled performance, drives variable data at an uninterrupted production speed of 833 feet per minute on a 30" wide web.
An especially exciting feature for the book and newspaper printing industry is the support of the native PDF (Adobe PDF Print Engine 2.5) format, which is ripped directly on the printer controller, eliminating the costly and time-consuming intermediate process.
