Canon Solutions America launched its new Oce PlotWave 340 and Oce PlotWave 360 monochrome printing systems.
"This new system was developed to address the practical needs of technical users who are working on projects with other parties via online portals or the cloud and require more flexibility from their multifunctional printing system," said Sal Sheikh, vice president, large format systems, Canon Solutions America. "The Oce PlotWave 340/360 provides superior ease-of-use via a multi-touch panel; affording users the flexibility of the mobile and handheld technologies they are accustomed to using."
The new Oce ClearConnect multi-touch user panel enables users to pan, zoom, swipe and spread. Thanks to the gestured controlled touch software, users are able to print faster and can see the orientation of documents with a live preview while scanning/copying to help avoid costly errors, the company says.
Technical users working via project portals or in the cloud can access documents directly at the printer using the Oce ClearConnect multi-touch panel. Files can be pulled to the printer from cloud-enabled workflows and scanned to the cloud of choice. In addition to the cloud, users can browse files and print them from a USB stick or network location. If a file is on a mobile phone, users can access the Oce PlotWave 340/360 printer and print via the Oce Publisher Mobile App through an existing WiFi connection, or they can print from their desktop PC via Oce Publisher Select to manage more complex document sets.
The new printers can print up to 4/6 D-size plots in one minute, with virtually no warm-up time. It is designed for fast file processing and can handle all file formats (a HP-GL/2, PDF, DWF, JPEG and more). True concurrent operation means the scanner can be used for copying or scanning while printing is taking place.
