Océ TDS700 Customer Benefits

Efficient, Productive Printing
Designed with streamlined production in mind, the Océ TDS700 is equipped to meet the tightest of print deadlines. The highly productive system handles up to nine, D-size prints per minute and provides over 10,000 sq. ft. of uninterrupted printing capability, without the need to stop the system to load toner or paper. Its up to six-roll media capability and ergonomically-designed roll loading system means users spend less time reloading media. Its next-generation Radiant Fusing Technology provides the fastest print time from a cold start in the industry, eliminating warm up and waiting time. The powerful Océ Power Logic® Controller processes print, copy and scan jobs quickly and allows for concurrent processing of the next file while the previous file is printing, reducing waiting time between prints. The result is faster turnaround times, less wasted materials and a more productive staff.

Investment Protection from the Start with Flexible, Configurable Choices
The Océ TDS700 fulfills current and future large format technical printing requirements because its modular design is field upgradeable to evolve with changing needs. The base configuration consists of the Océ TDS700 printer with two rolls, a manual sheet feed, an integrated receiving tray and the embedded third-generation Océ Power Logic Controller. As a core system, the Océ TDS700 is poised to handle mid-volume jobs, yet can be readily upgraded to support monochrome or color scanning, folding or high-production cut sheet stacking to reduce manual finishing bottlenecks, two-to-six roll and multiple cut sheet media options, and various software tools to meet future changes in technical document workflow demands.

Superior Print Quality for Professional Results
The 600 x1200 dpi pico printing of the Océ TDS700 ensures exceptional quality output – sharp, fine details, smooth grey scales and brilliant renderings of 3-D drawings and intricate graphics. With the scanner option, users benefit from Océ Image Logic® image-enhancement technology, which has set the standard for first-time-right copies and prints. Océ Image Logic software is a patented digital-enhancement process that analyzes an original’s image, millimeter by millimeter, to refine and optimize it while suppressing background imperfections. Whatever the type or condition of the original – blueprint; sepia; even old, darkened drawings - the results are right the first time, eliminating time-consuming and costly trial-and-error rework. The single mirror, single camera design of the Océ TDS700 scanner eliminates the need for image stitching and minimizes the probability of distortion. The Océ TDS700 enables businesses to quickly and conveniently produce a professional image with every print, copy and scan.

Optimized Workflow with Innovative Software
With a full range of software available, the Océ TDS700 can be configured to the specific ways departments and companies work. The Océ Print Exec® Software Suite optimizes the entire technical document printing process – from desktop job submission to enterprise-wide print management. Océ Repro Desk® software offers online print processing that boosts the profitability of central repro departments and commercial reprographers. To improve profits even further, Océ Account Center allocates printing, copying and scanning costs to departments, projects and customers, turning expenses into chargeable income. Other software options can be added to the Océ TDS700 as and when they are needed.

Easy-to-Use, Intuitive Design
The Océ TDS700’s intuitive “smart” user interface makes work easier for end-users by guiding them through the system so they get their documents when they want them. It even allows the saving of user-specific settings for future (and password-protected) access. Océ Advanced Queue Management allows users to schedule and reorganize jobs as priorities change. One-step scan-to-file enables scanning to just about any location (controller, FTP site or network location), minimizing the time needed to digitize documents for storage or distribution. The Océ TDS700 also features an integrated output receiving tray on top of system, which takes up less space and neatly stacks collated prints for easy access with no post-process sorting required.
