Go Oce! You have to love engineering DNA

If they could just add the American/Australian "toot your own horn" gene, they'll have just right DNA for my IRA. I'm pretty sure that's not how they do it in Venlo or Germany, but this is a very noisy global market. Plus we assume that scientists and engineers will figure out everything sooner or later.

I was recently told that Oce has 24 Jetstreams in running in commercial enterprises scattered over the whole planet. But that was through a conversation with a colleague, not from anything I found at their website.
Oce ColorWave 600 Receives Best "Emerging" Technology Award
from WhatTheyThink:
"Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Trumbull, CT – Oce . . .today announced that its wide format Oce ColorWave 600 printer has received the EDP award for best emerging technology
. . .
One key reason for the EDP recognition is the fundamentally new technology applied in the Océ ColorWave 600 printer, the Océ CrystalPoint technology, developed in-house by Océ. It offers the best of both toner and inkjet in a single sustainable process. Customers can use it to make high quality black & white or color prints on uncoated plain or recycled paper.

It is also an entirely sustainable technology. There is no toner powder, no odor and no ozone. It minimizes waste disposal, and because the technology does not require coated media, it also reduces the environmental impact of paper coatings.

  1. I'm wondering how this printer can reduce the environmental impact of paper coatings. Could you explain it to me?
