Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced that Océ Deutschland GmbH and Itergo Informationstechnologie GmbH have signed a contract for the installation of four Océ ColorStream 3500 printing systems and their operation as twin systems. This is the first placement of an Océ ColorStream 3500 in Germany. Itergo will use the two continuous feed twin systems for high-productivity fully variable color inkjet printing, with installation planned for later this month.
Colored elements boost printed communication
Using this Océ ColorStream plain paper solution, Itergo can in future produce full color transaction documents such as insurance policies, damage assessment reports, customer information or account statements in one work step without the need to produce offset-printed forms in advance. Substituting preprinted material gives Itergo a considerable potential for process optimization. Moreover, communicating in color creates new possibilities to better and more accurately address customers. Colored elements in correspondence, policies and invoices make orientation within the document easier for the reader and permit the sender to selectively highlight important information.
“After an intensive selection process, we determined that Océ could provide us with the best solution for operational optimization using full color systems,” said Michael Adamitzki, Document Services Manager at Itergo. “The Océ ColorStream 3500 meant that hardware that fits this kind of solution could be provided, allowing us to meet both today's and tomorrow's needs.” Itergo is sure that Océ can successfully implement such a complex color solution.
Partnership of many years standing
The economic operation of the system when printing black & white, the impressive print quality and the flexibility of usage as a single or twin system depending on requirements were prime arguments for Itergo to invest in the Océ ColorStream 3500. The many years of close cooperation in partnership with Océ also had a positive influence on this decision.
Sebastian Landesberger, Executive Vice President Océ Production Printing, observes that “due to its flexible concept, the Océ ColorStream 3500 can be easily upgraded in the field by up to 6 colors to meet future user needs. Such flexibility ensures a future-proof system that simplifies the transition from applications and business models to high-quality documents with variable personalization and intelligent communication in color.”
Striking out in a new direction – but basing it on proven technology
The Océ ColorStream 3500, the first high-performance full color inkjet printing system with the combination of Océ DigiDot inkjet technology, Océ SRA® MP controller and the well-known Océ twin concept, sets new standards for high-productivity full color inkjet printing. The system, designed for high-speed printing, is equipped with a wealth of innovative technologies that ensure improved print quality and productivity, and decisively affect the areas where it can be used.
As well as simplex/duplex flexibility, these include machine-oriented flexible extension into color. With its modular construction and various single and twin configurations, the printing system is perfectly suited for a straightforward transition from black & white to full color printing – right up to five or six colors.
