With any printer, dust particles and paper touches can cause printing nozzles to fail, resulting in a thin white line on prints. Océ PAINT technology (Piezo Acoustic Integrated Nozzle Technology) applies sophisticated diagnostics, maintenance and error corrections to overcome common nozzle issues that occur with conventional inkjet printers – even while printing. The printer checks the status of each printing nozzle by sending an acoustic pulse and cleans a specific nozzle if required in just seconds. This decreases maintenance and waste and increases system lifetime. The printer can detect and compensate a nozzle failure per swath so a print is not ruined and high throughput and productivity are maintained. The printer measures and corrects the actual drop size to ensure consistent print quality and color matching, print after print, year after year.
