Dear Desktop Engineering Reader:


In this day and age of the paperless office, we still spend a tremendous amount of time executing arborcide so that we can print and copy stuff. And many outfits also spend an enormous amount of time waiting for either A) some service bureau to scan or print their oversized engineering documents or B) for the service dudes to show up and move their Sherman tank-sized printer, scanner, or copier around the office because they need to turn one more cubicle into a bunkhouse. Océ North America has a solution for both of these office headaches.

The new Océ ColorWave 300 offers big-unit black-and-white and color printing, scanning, and copying in a single footprint that doesn’t come from a big foot. Measuring just 78 x 36 x 68 inches, which includes everything as well as an optional top delivery tray, the ColorWave 300 can be tucked under a flight of stairs or in some formerly useless corner near the storage closet. Since it uses inkjet technology, it is easy to maintain and it doesn’t need special venting.

What is big about the ColorWave 300 is that it’s fast—scanning speeds range up to 38 feet per minute in monochrome and up to 13 feet per minute in color mode. It offers 600 x 600 dpi print and scanning resolution, and it automatically recognizes original and media sizes as well as image positioning. The ColorWave 300 also comes with job-management software so that you can view and control it from your Internet browser. And because the ColorWave 300 is a printer, scanner,  and copier, you need just one set of supplies for it, getting you back space in that storage closet as well as in your office.

Finally, what you also get with the ColorWave 300 is Océ‘s reputation for leading-edge technology that makes technology work for you rather than giving you a headache trying to make the technology work. So, learn all about the ColorWave 300 from today’s Pick of the Week write-up. Make sure to hit the link for the interactive video and see all that this system offers.

Thanks, Pal.—Lockwood
