Oce Plotwave 450 / 550 Oce Large Format Printer Supplies

The Océ Plotwave 450 / 550 Printing System is a wide format printer, copier, and scanner for businesses looking for an all-in-one production printer. Architect, engineers, and construction focused businesses will benefit from not hearing loud fan noise in stand-by mode due the lack of a traditional pressure roller in the Oce Plotwave 450 / 550. This allows the Oce 450 / 550 to run at lower temperatures as compared to other wide format printers. The Oce Clear Connect multi-touch LCD user panel is right at the printer, so you'll know exactly what's going on with the Oce Plotwave 450 / 550 printing system without having to run back to your desktop computer or bring along your tablet or smartphone devices.  

The Oce Plotwave 450 wide format printer is capable of printing up to 8 pages per minute while the Oce Plotwave 550 large format printer produces up to 10 pages per minute. You won't be waiting long for the Océ Plotwave 450 / 550 printer to start producing quality prints with the first print out in 16 seconds and 30 seconds in standby mode. Getting your files to the Oce Plotwave 450 / 550 wide format printer couldn't be more convenience with the available Microsoft Windows Drivers.

Desktop printers can't match the Oce Plotwave 450 / 550 large format printer's ability to produce up to 36 inches wide by 577 foot long prints. You'll be able to handle 4 media rolls at 36 inches wide when you add the optional media upgrade to your print system. Want to expand the capabilities of your printer? You'll be able to add an optional Folding System, Stacking System, and Media Capacity. These are great options for when your business needs change and don't have the budget to buy an additional wide format printer.

With so many features on the Oce Plotwave 450 / 550 wide format printer copier scanner, you'll quickly be on your way printing any job from architectural drawings to engineering designs.

Are the Oce Plotwave Large Format Printers the Same As the Canon Plotwave Wide Format Printers?

Yes. Canon acquired Oce in 2019 including Oce's entire printer line. We've noticed over the last several years that Canon has rebranded much of its marketing material where Oce was once prominently displayed. Canon has also assigned new Canon part numbers in an apparent attempt to replace the older Oce part numbers on existing supply products. This is causing confusion in the marketplace with the same product now having two very different Oce and Canon part numbers.

How Much Can I Print With One Cartridge (Page Yield)?

Published yields should be considered as a guide line only and not an absolute indication of what yield can reasonably be expected in practice. It is important to be aware that actual coverage per page varies significantly depending on the job stream being processed, presence or absence of heavy graphics, machine density settings and the condition of the specific machine on which a job is being run.

Are Your Products OEM or Compatible?

Shop In Today offers a mixture of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and Compatible products. Our OEM products are designated with “Genuine” or "OEM" in the product titles as well as the Sku (Reorder) number ending in "-OEM". All other products are Compatible. Our Compatible products are manufactured to exacting specifications that meet or exceed OEM standards. You can have complete confidence in our compatible products as they have been sold for many years worldwide. Each product is backed by our "No Quibble Guarantee”. Any questions or concerns, please contact our Sales Department using the “Contact Us” form.

Why Should I Buy Compatible Products?

Think of the last time you picked up a prescription at the drug store. Many times you receive generic (compatible) medication rather than the brand name. This saves you a considerable amount of money.

You can also save a considerable amount of money over OEM products. Don’t be tricked into thinking that a lower price means a lower quality product. Compatible products are manufactured to exacting specifications that meet or exceed OEM standards.

Will Compatible Products Void My Warranty or Service Contract?

NO! We occasionally run into situations where our customer feels that they are forced to use OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) supplies. We, of course, do not know the specifics of the service contract that your company has with your service provider, however, we can make you aware of some important restrictions as to just how much a service provider can limit your freedom of choice with regard to supplies and consumables.

While we are not qualified to offer legal advice, it may be of interest for you to know that there two bodies of legislation that prohibit denying consumers freedom of choice with regard to from whom they can buy their supplies and consumables: The Sherman & Clayton Antitrust Acts and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act.



The Sherman Antitrust Act was passed by the US Congress in 1890. “The Sherman Act outlaws "every contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade," and any "monopolization, attempted monopolization, or conspiracy or combination to monopolize."”

The Clayton Antitrust Act was passed by the US Congress in 1914. “Section 7 of the Clayton Act prohibits mergers and acquisitions where the effect "may be substantially to lessen competition, or to tend to create a monopoly." As amended by the Robinson-Patman Act of 1936, the Clayton Act also bans certain discriminatory prices, services, and allowances in dealings between merchants”.



At one time it was common practice for IBM to intimidate customers by threatening to terminate, and in some cases terminating, equipment leases if the customer did not use all original supplies manufactured by IBM. The US Supreme court determined that this was a 'tying agreement' and found the practice to be in direct violation of the Sherman & Clayton Antitrust Act. This was a landmark decision ... and a very expensive and embarrassing experience for IBM.

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act, as the name implies, relates to similar situations when the equipment involved is under warranty.


Chapter 50 – Consumer Product Warranties
“2302. Rules governing contents and warranties”

“No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer's using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade or corporate name; except that the prohibition of this subsection be waived by the commission if:

1. The warrantor satisfies the Commission that the warranted product will function properly only if the article or service so identified is used in connection with the warranted product, and

2. The Commission finds that such a waiver is in the public interest.”
