Press release from the issuing company

Tuesday April 17 -- BOSTON, April 17 -- Oce, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, has expanded its industry-leading Oce VarioPrint 6000 simultaneous digital duplex family to address broader market requirements. With the new Oce VarioPrint 6160 and Oce VarioPrint 6200, Oce extends its leadership in duplex applications by addressing the need for additional speed bands and corresponding price points. Oce is introducing the new systems to the US market at the On Demand conference. Joining the highly successful 250 prints-per-minute Oce VarioPrint 6250, the new Oce VarioPrint 6160 and Oce VarioPrint 6200 printers use Oce Gemini Instant Duplex Technology to simultaneously deliver 160 and 200 prints per minute respectively. The three systems are the only single engine duplex, cut- sheet digital printers on the market and they offer unmatched productivity. All three are available now. "In 2006, with the launch of Oce VarioPrint 6250, Oce Gemini Instant Duplex Technology changed the face of duplex printing. Simultaneous duplexing is now boosting productivity at print shops, quick printers, commercial printers and in-house print rooms. According to our customer research, duplex applications count for over 80 percent of the volume. These new systems extend proven Oce technology to a wider range of users who need additional speed choices," said Eric de Goeijen, Vice President, Marketing, Oce North America Corporate Printing Division.
