Press release from the issuing company
BOCA RATON, FL – August 6, 2003 – Oce, a leading provider of production-class printing solutions, today announced the release of the multifunctional Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 systems, the newest members of the Océ VarioPrint 2000 family of production-class cut-sheet printers. The 52 ppm Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 62 ppm Océ VarioPrint 2070 provide digital cut-sheet solutions for customers needing a high degree of flexibility and performance. The new Océ VarioPrint 2000 family of multifunctional solutions combines network printing, copying and network scanning in a single device, making it easier for customers to turn paper documents into electronic images that can be faxed, copied, posted online, or distributed electronically. By enabling digital document workflow, the systems give companies a greater competitive position through faster turnaround and easier access to information.
“Companies today are challenged to find new ways to save time and reduce costs for greater efficiency and productivity. The new Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 are packed with functionality to achieve these goals and help customers do more with less,” stated Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ Printing Systems USA, Inc. “The Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 bring best-in-class performance to their market segments and round out the functionality of the Océ VarioPrint 2000 family. As the powerhouses of the line, the two new systems deliver broad value to markets and applications across the board.”
The new systems replace the enormously successful Oce 3155 and 3165 models, which were among the first digital printers on the market and widely recognized for their extreme reliability. The Océ VarioPrint 2000 family provides cut-sheet imaging for multi-purpose networked or distributed document work centers, including office printing and copying, retail print shops, and centralized printing and copying operations that require the best possible performance. This reliable, versatile family of printers represents an all-in-one investment that can be used by more people more often for more purposes. Within one platform, the Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 provide top quality tools for both document input (scanning) and output (printing, copying). Full digitalization of the print flow, including “scan once, print many” functionality, saves time and boosts organizational productivity and responsiveness, both internally and to customers.
Like other products in the Océ VarioPrint 2000 family, the new multi-function printers are superior in their ability to copy, scan and print, and they boast many of the other capabilities typical of this richly featured product line. Hallmarks of the Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 include features designed to keep workflow running smoothly, while reducing manual labor. As a result, companies can save time, improve the quality of deliverables, and minimize the risk of downtime. In addition, the high-performance systems set new standards for full speed original scanning and one-pass duplexing. Increased reliability and output consistency are achieved through patented Océ Copy Press technology, which delivers the highest quality output available in the market today. Generous on-line paper and toner capacity minimize interruptions to attend to the machine, so frequent monitoring is not necessary. As a result, employees get more done in less time so they can focus on other mission-critical responsibilities.
Improved Workflow for Variety of Applications
The new Océ VarioPrint models provide the most productive multifunctional technology to corporate and commercial print users in a variety of industries and markets. Finance, government, telecommunications, manufacturers, commercial printers, corporate print centers and many others will find the Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 the ideal solutions for a myriad of today’s applications. The systems improve production workflow for high-quality office and on-demand applications like booklets, manuals, invoices, presentations, memos, personalized packets, reports, packing lists, and other documents needed by an enterprise. The Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 support true convergence with the quality and versatility required for typical office documents, along with the security and productivity needed for transaction documents.
Government, legal and other markets will benefit from the digital on-demand printing of time-sensitive technical, legal, or regulatory documentation. These organizations gain the security of always having current content, along with reduced warehousing and inventory waste. Océ further accommodates organizations needing the highest security by providing a unique Digital Mailbox system and the optional assignment of a secure PIN code.
With powerful functionality and simple operation, the new systems can be part of an established enterprise document strategy, or the growth path for companies just adopting digital output. Users at any level can operate the easy-to-handle systems. With their production-class performance, the systems are ideal for high-end office and centralized corporate printing environments needing monthly print, scan and copy volumes of up to a recommended 300,000 impressions every month, and where ease of use, versatility, easy network integration, and seamless workflow are key requirements. The Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 can also be used for printing tasks that are not cost-effective to assign to higher-speed production presses, such as proofs, or very short runs of documents.
Commercial Printers Gain Broader Service Offering
With the Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070, Océ gives quick printer and copy shops the tools to take on a wider range of value-added services and turn work around more quickly, while maintaining competitive quality and pricing. In print-for-pay production environments, uses can implement better workflow and increase operational efficiencies. Finishing and other competitive services such as scanning, archiving and variable data printing provide profitable growth opportunities. Impressive flexibility in copy materials and sizes expand possibilities for more applications from one system. Support for a wide range of paper formats and media types provide total versatility for all the jobs a commercial printer or central printing department might encounter.
Optional ScanLogic Software enables network scanning of analog documents and Océ Image Logic technology ensures optimal image quality. Together they help deliver the industry’s finest quality files to a customer’s network for complete document management capabilities.
The new systems can be operated in connection with Océ PRISMA+POD output management system, as well as Océ Doc Works Exec and Océ Office Exec to further optimize print-on-demand workflow. Users gain the ability to select print options and features without having to configure print devices. Océ software will intelligently route print jobs to the right printer, track print job costs, and provide the information for departmental billing.
