"The AEC industry is constantly looking to improve productivity while reducing operational costs, and there is tremendous opportunity to do so with today's advanced wide format printing solutions," said Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Marketing, Oce Wide Format Printing division of Oce North America. "The Oce solutions on display at Autodesk University deliver economical wide format monochrome and color CAD printing for AEC firms in order to improve accuracy and workflow, better enabling them to finish projects on time and under budget."
Large Format Solutions Streamline Operations, Leverage the Value of Color
The use of color in CAD documents encourages faster, more accurate decision-making and helps reduce the risk of misinterpretation, lowering the potential for mistakes in both the early approval phases and throughout the entire project lifecycle. Color can improve communications between AEC team members, reduce mistakes and rework, speed project completion and reduce construction delays. The Oce large format printing systems on display at Autodesk University are designed to make it easy and economical for AEC companies to incorporate advanced, multifunction printing solutions into their operations.
All-in-One Innovation to Leverage the Power of Color
The Oce ColorWave 300 multifunction printer system is an integrated large format, single-footprint system for color and monochrome printing, copying and scanning. Now, AEC firms no longer have to invest in separate systems for printing large format color and monochrome documents, making the jump to color more economical. This all-in-one color printing system fits into small, compact spaces and is designed to handle customer requirements in low- to mid-volume technical applications, both decentralized and departmental. The system also features a Top Delivery Tray that stacks many types of inkjet media on top of the printer, reducing space requirements to a minimum.
The Oce ColorWave 600 printer uses unique Oce CrystalPoint® technology to produce high-quality prints on lower cost plain and recycled paper. This technology combines the best of both toner and inkjet printing in one device for high speed, high production color toner printing on uncoated paper, matte film, and even Tyvek® for waterproof outdoor use. Blending the best of both technologies allows AEC professionals to re-think the way they approach color printing. The Oce ColorWave 600 printer enables users to produce color prints quickly and easily with zero drying time for instantly usable prints.
Compact, Durable All-in-One Monochrome System
The Oce PlotWave 300 all-in-one, large format monochrome print system is ideal for firms that need a print/copy/scan system that fits into small spaces plus is intuitive and economical to operate. The system incorporates Oce Radiant Fusing technology, the most efficient way to fuse toner onto paper, with benefits such as no warm-up time, half the energy use of comparable systems, and virtually no ozone emissions - all while maintaining superior image quality for even the most complex documents. It also includes features such as a built-in USB flash drive for printing and scanning at the system, an output delivery tray on the top of the machine, air separation to prevent prints from curling, and a scroll and click panel and smart buttons that make it easy to use for both experienced and new walk-up users.
All of the systems on display during Autodesk University are available now. For more information, call Oce at 800-714-4427 or visit www.oceusa.com.
