February 9, 2012, Trumbull, CT – Océ, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced the launch of its innovative new portfolio for technical document systems. A range of new systems is being introduced to help technical users take advantage of advances in technical document printing.
Cooperation Changes the Future of Technical Document Printing
This new portfolio for the technical document market confirms the commitment of Océ and Canon to this industry. While many manufacturers are reducing their investment in this area, Océ and Canon continue to invest and develop new technologies to help customers produce their large format documents faster and more cost-effectively.
Sal Sheikh, Vice President of Marketing for the Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America says, “In today’s economy more than ever, companies are looking for ways to maximize the productivity, flexibility and ease of use of their technical document workflows. Time and cost wasters must be squeezed out of all processes. Our new, expanded portfolio offers ways for companies using technical documents to get more out of their equipment investment.”
Océ PlotWave® 350 Printing System – Mobile Printing Flexibility and Speed Designed for Workgroups and Walk Up Users
This fast and flexible large format monochrome printer helps businesses save time and money on their document production. 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 MobilePlot App for iPad® devices and 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. Built with an enhanced version of the unique, energy efficient Océ Radiant Fusing technology, this system can print up to six D-size plots in one minute, with virtually no warm-up time.
Océ ColorWave® 650 Printing System – Productive Black and White and Color Printing in One
Now it is possible to print, copy and scan in black and white and color – on a single device without sacrificing productivity or quality.

It can print in black and white and color at up to 210 D-size prints per hour for all round productivity. The system can hold up to six media rolls and prints come out dry, cut to size and ready to use. Copy and scan templates simplify routine tasks. With the integrated folder users can print folded document sets from their desktop.
