Venlo, The Netherlands, 19 November 2012 – Océ, a Canon Group company and an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced that Océ Printing Systems in Poing has been awarded the prestigious Bayerische Innovationspreis 2012 (2012 Bavarian Innovation Prize) for the innovative design and technology of the Océ ColorStream® 3000 series.
The winner is – the Océ ColorStream 3000 series
The sponsors of the Innovation Prize are the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology, the Bavarian Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry and the Working Committee of the Bavarian Chamber of Trades & Crafts.
The Océ ColorStream 3000 series is a family of high-performance full-color inkjet printing systems developed by Océ Printing Systems in Poing. At speeds of 48 to 127 meters per minute (324 to 1714 A4 pages per minute), these digital printing systems achieve a high print quality immediately after startup. The products in this family of systems are primarily used for individualized applications such as invoices and mailings as well as the scheduled printing of books and newspapers.
A single production step
For account statements, mailings or insurance policies, for example, up until now colored preprinted forms have been stocked that were created utilizing an offset procedure. In a second step, these forms were taken out of storage and digitally printed in black with variable data such as names, addresses and similar.
Utilizing this new technology from Océ, it is now possible to replace the applications produced in this two-step process by a considerably more economic single digital production step. An ultra-fast high-quality b/w printing speed on blank or preprinted paper with no setup time and including document personalization/individualization options has resulted in this all-inclusive package being adopted by more and more customers throughout the world.
