How does the Océ Colorado revolutionise automation
The Océ Colorado 1640 exploits all the advantages of UVgel, and adds automation features that make the printer even more productive. With a top speed of 159 m2/hr for applications such as billboards or outdoor banners, the Océ Colorado 1640 is faster than any other printer in this segment. Even at the highest level of quality for close-up indoor applications, the printer operates at a speed of 40 m2/hr.
The printer’s automation features reduce operator handling time by up to a third compared to competitive technologies. The dual-roll configuration of the Océ Colorado 1640 further enhances productivity, not only decreasing the time required to load media but also enabling users to switch media quickly when producing mixed applications.
The heavy-duty drawer holds two rolls of media, of the same or different types. Both rolls can be fed into the print engine without operator assistance. The media height can be added to the media profile, and upon loading the media and media profile the printer then automatically adjusts the print gap accordingly, ensuring the best possible quality print and preventing printhead crashes. The new parameters are then stored into the media library for future use.
As with all roll-to-roll printers, an important factor in print quality and application range is the accuracy with which the printer advances the media. The printer’s heavy, robust frame, classleading rigidity and industrial components ensure stability of media handling. The printer also features Océ MediaStep system, which uses an optical feedback loop that continuously monitors media
advance to automatically correct the subsequent step size as needed.
The continuous nozzle monitoring feature of the Océ/Océ UVgel printheads allows for unattended printing and reduces waste prints.
Engineered to the highest industrial standards, the Océ Colorado 1640 therefore meets the peak production requirements of businesses of all sizes, producing high volumes of wide-format graphics – including posters, banners, signage, POS, billboards, window graphics, decals and bespoke wallcoverings – within the short turnaround times demanded by clients.
