About Océ ColorWave 600 and Océ CrystalPoint technology
The Océ ColorWave 600 is based on Océ CrystalPoint technology. This unique technology, developed entirely by Océ, utilizes solid Océ TonerPearls. During the printing process, these are converted into a gel which is jetted onto plain paper or other media surfaces. This tonergel jetting technique produces crisp, high quality prints, which are direct dry, waterfast and robust enough for outdoor use. The Océ ColorWave 600 prints these images with a speed of up to half a minute for an A0, making it one of the fastest wide format color printers on the market. The Océ ColorWave 600 is ideal for technical documents like CAD drawings and plots, GIS documents and architectural renderings. The system is also setting new standards in making personalized point-of-purchase signs.
