Advanced print technologies
The Océ CS9050 offers superior print quality and ink economy through the use of four-color inks plus Océ
CS9000 VariaDotTM imaging technology and WAVE Stitching print modes.
Océ CS9000 VariaDot imaging technology produces dots with variable drop sizes to deliver finer details,
smoother gradients and sharper images. The use of Océ CS9000 VariaDot imaging technology results in
significantly lower ink usage of the Océ CS9050 when compared to the ink usage of six color printers using
fixed dot inkjet technology; 25 to 35 percent less ink is used.
WAVE Stitching was first introduced in the Océ CS9000 Series; it prints in ‘waves’ instead of straight bands
resulting in higher print quality, improved productivity and increased media versatility. In the Océ CS9050,
WAVE Stitching is available in all print modes. With WAVE Stitching, the Océ CS9050 can produce prints
with consistent quality in Production print modes, even when more demanding media are used. The level of
banding in Production print modes is greatly reduced to less than that of many solvent printers in High Quality
