How does UVgel technology influence total cost of ownership?
The productivity gains offered by Océ UVgel technology enable Print Service Providor’s to deliver more finished jobs from a single printer without increasing staffing costs, resulting in accelerated return on their capital investment.
Reduced ink consumption and wastage
Benchmarking tests validated by Buyers Lab Inc (BLI) have shown that Uvgel technology can save customers 40% on average on ink usage (including wastage) when compared with 64” latexor eco-solvent systems. This saving is achieved thanks to UVgel technology’s highly efficient use of four colour inks, which deliver as wide a colour gamut as other roll to roll technologies that use a greater number of colours, and because the acoustic nozzle monitoring technology fires an electro-acoustic pulse, rather than ink droplets, to test the printhead nozzles, significantly reducing ink wastage.
Option to use less expensive media
The low-heat Océ UVgel technology enables Print Service Providors to work with thin and heat-sensitive media. This gives Print Service Providors the option to choose less expensive substrates when appropriate to the application and customer expectation, potentially reducing consumable costs.
Nozzle compensation and preemptive quality control
Océ UVgel’s automatic nozzle compensation technology ensures that prints remain at saleable quality, even when nozzles are malfunctioning, reducing waste. The system pre-empts quality defects by testing the nozzles continually. This enables the operator to be proactive about printhead maintenance, rather than being alerted to issues by poor quality output.
