The genesis of Océ CrystalPoint technology began in 2008, when it was first introduced to the industry alongside the product line it still powers and supports today – the Océ ColorWave portfolio. This portfolio comprises a family of versatile and productive large format color printers that help customers of all sizes around the world expand their large format print offerings. Now in its 10th year, Océ CrystalPoint technology offers users the best of both inkjet and toner: crisp, high-quality, waterproof color and black & white prints, even on economical uncoated media and recycled paper. The technology remains as prevalent and important as event, and is ideal for a wide range of applications that include CAD plots, maps and posters.
Utilizing Océ TonerPearls, the Océ CrystalPoint technology works on the principle of Solid In - Solid Out. The Océ TonerPearls come in see-through cartridges, allowing users the benefit of seeing the remaining toner level per color in the system. Once the Océ TonerPearls are fed into the system, they are then heated into a gel. Subsequently, the gel is jetted onto the media by the imaging devices. The gel droplets are positioned with extreme precision and keep their shape even on recycled paper, ensuring crisp print quality with no feathering.
A mere few months before its 10th anniversary, the Océ CrystalPoint Technology is still at the core of the newest line of Océ ColorWave products – the Océ ColorWave 500 and 700 large format color printers. Designed to enable a wide range of print applications for print service providers, in-house or remote work groups and central print rooms worldwide, these large format devices feature cloud integration, multiple user support, workflows with security features, optional built-in scanner and a range of integrated output options.
