A PRESTIGIOUS and historic university in Canada has invested in an Intec HPP500 heavy stock color digital printer. The printing department at the University of Montréal in Quebec is "delighted" with its purchase and uses it for printing envelopes as well as literature for course books, brochures and manuals for over 6,600 staff and more than 55,000 students. The university teaches a broad range of disciplines from languages to sociology, economics, dentistry, law, medicine and music.
Michael Sparbeck, Chief Operating Officer at Intec Printing Solutions Corporation in Tampa, Florida, says: "It is really encouraging that such a well thought of institution recognizes the benefits of the Intec HPP500. It enables them to continuously print large numbers of envelopes and printed media, allowing staff to focus on other important tasks. The University of Montreal joins an ever-expanding list of happy clients."
The Intec HPP500 is fitted with a friction feed multi-media input system with registration table and magnetic guides and high capacity output shingling conveyor, enabling it to print over 2,000 full color prints an hour.
Founded in 1878 the University of Montréal is Canada's second largest higher education establishment in terms of student enrolment. In the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2011, the University of Montréal was placed fifth to sixth in Canada and 102nd to 150st in the world.
Montreal, the largest city in Quebec, is the second largest city in Canada and French is the official language. The city featured in the cult 2001 crime thriller The Score starring Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando. In it, master safe-cracker Nick Wells, played by De Niro, owned a jazz club in the city and he successfully stole a valuable French sceptre from Montréal Customs House.
