Each year the EDP, an independent European association for the digital print industry, awards the best products within the industry. This year, the Océ ColorWave 600 has received the EDP award for best emerging technology.

One key reason for the EDP recognition is the new technology applied in the Océ ColorWave 600 printer, the Océ CrystalPoint technology, developed in-house by Océ - Australia . The Océ CrystalPoint technology offers both toner and inkjet in a single sustainable process. Customers can use it to make high quality black and white or colour prints on lighter weight or recycled paper.

The Océ CrystalPoint is also a sustainable technology. There is no toner powder, odour or ozone. It minimises waste disposal, and because the technology does not require coated media, it also reduces the environmental impact of paper coatings.

Since its introduction in 2008, the Océ ColorWave 600 printer has received seven major awards. These are:

  • EDP Best Emerging Technology
  • Bertl’s Best Award
  • Bertl’s 4 ½ Star Outstanding rating
  • Good Design Award in Japan
  • iF Product Design Award in Germany
  • MUST SEE ‘EM Award at GRAPH EXPO in the US
  • Editor’s Choice Award in the UK
