Oce Increases Print Resolution of Pagestream Systems

Press release from the issuing company

Poing, Germany, November 8, 2001 — Oce is launching two technical innovations for its Pagestream product line: the Oce Pagestream 440, 500, 880 and 1000 will now be able to process 600 dpi data at full rate output speed, and the choice of imaging quality will give customers much greater flexibility. It will be possible for certain existing installations to upgrade to the new functionality. MRM-S (Multiple Resolution Mode—Standard) This enables automated processing of 240, 300 and 600 dpi data streams at full rated production speed. Output speeds of up to 1,000 ppm are possible, using low-cost 300 dpi consumables to deliver standard imaging quality. This sets a new productivity benchmark for printing text, invoices or account statements. The data stream resolution is identified automatically—there is no need for any intervention on the part of the operator. This ensures consistent print quality, reduces set-up times and increases the machine up time. With MRM-S, users can print data streams with various resolutions cheaply and speedily, without manual operator intervention! SRS (Speed Resolution Switch) This makes it possible for an MRM-S printing system to switch between either standard quality or 600 dpi advanced print quality with 600 dpi consumables and at an adapted speed of 350 or 700 A4 ppm respectively. All there is to do is change the photoconductor drum, developer station, plus toner and developer. Thanks to the QCDS concept (Quick Change Developer Station), the task is achieved by the operator in a matter of minutes. The entire changeover is menu-driven, which ensures that everything is carried out rapidly and reliably. SRS empowers users to adjust imaging quality to the demands of the job in hand in a straightforward manner. This provides for greater flexibility and expands the range of applications that the printing system can handle, while also enhancing the commercial viability. Availability MRM-S and SRS will be available for the Oce Pagestream 440, 500, 880 and 1000 printing systems world-wide beginning November 2001.
