Océ PlotWave 500 Wide Format Printing System Features

Large format printer with instant-on productivity and flexible printing options

1. Fast and Easy Printing with Océ Clearconnect Panel

Works like a tablet. Easily control the large format printer with your fingertips using the simple screen movements you are used to. Swipe, spread and zoom in on details of a drawing. Check that documents are correctly positioned using the live preview to avoid errors.

2. Neat Document Delivery

Get neatly collated and stacked documents of up to 100 E-size/AO plots on the top delivery tray thanks to air separation technology. No extra space needed for a folding table. Or choose from finishing options to save you valuable time with higher capacity stacking or without hand folding documents. Get quality folded documents ready to go.

3. Get Better Copy and Large Format Color Scanning Results

Océ Color Image Logic® technology automatically compensates for wrinkles and light colors to produce superior scan results. Originals are inserted face-up and paper width is detected automatically.

4. Instant Productivity with Océ Radiant Fusing

Get instant start-up and use half the energy of comparable systems. With a remarkable print speed of 10 D-size/A1 prints per minute. Increase your productivity even more with the 4 roll option for unattended printing. Even scan while printing.

5. Effortless Roll Changing

Save time and effort. Place the roll on the built-in roll loading station, and paper is fed into the printer, cut and sized — completely automatically.

6. Reliable Quality and Performance

Take advantage of better large format print quality with high resolution Pico Printing at 600 × 1200 dpi. Océ Image Logic® technology automatically detects the width of images to ensure “first time right” results. Enjoy a long productive system lifetime thanks to robust and durable construction.

7. Eco Friendly System

This system has very low ozone emissions, very low heat output and a very low sound level under 25 dB while in standby and sleep modes. It runs very quietly, so it can be comfortably placed in an office environment. The toner system is completely closed and within easy reach.

8. Flexible Workflow

This system is designed to make it easier to prepare, produce and manage complex technical documents and sets of drawings. Advanced tools make it easy to get documents where you need them, when you need them.
