New Oce 750II MICR Solution Delivers Productivity and Flexibility
Press release from the issuing company
Boca Raton, FL—October 27, 2003— Oce, a leading provider of production-class, digital printing solutions, today announced a state-of-the-art, cut-sheet digital MICR printer that accommodates up to one million impressions per month. The new Océ 750II MICR printer rounds out Océ’s broad offering of MICR functionality and reinforces the company’s leadership as a provider of world-class MICR printing solutions. As customers face pressure to do more with less, this new solution builds on the proven value of the Océ 750II to give customers an enhanced solution to fully address their MICR requirements.
The 75-ppm Océ 750II MICR system is ideal for midrange transactional production and distributed printing environments that need to produce checks, pre-authorized drafts, bankcard checks, coupon payment books, deposit books, and other MICR documents. Users in a wide range of industries including banking and financial services, insurance, service bureaus, and direct mailers will gain significant benefits from the printer’s reliable, versatile performance and advanced finishing features usually found in much higher priced systems. With on-demand printing of high-quality MICR output, organizations can save time and eliminate the risk of storing blank pre-printed checks and other negotiable documents. The Océ 750II MICR printer is fully backed by the Océ MICR Guarantee, giving users complete assurance of reliable performance and quality. Installed Océ 750II printers can be upgraded to dedicated MICR functionality, providing existing customers with an investment that offers future-proof adaptability.
“Every industry today faces pressure to do more with less, and Océ is committed to helping organizations meet this challenge. Now our customers, across a wide range of markets, have a flexible midrange solution for their MICR applications with lower costs, a smaller footprint, and advanced finishing features rarely found in competitive systems,” said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ Printing Systems USA. “We already offer MICR support on our popular high-speed Océ VarioStream and Océ VarioPrint families. With this latest entry, we are migrating this important capability to other members of our product line. This gives our customers a wider range of fully capable solutions and prepares them to handle whatever work comes their way.”
Additional flexibility comes from ready integration into existing multi-protocol environments through the printer’s native IPDS, PostScript, and PCL5e, and Xerox LCDS/Metacode data stream support via an Océ PRISMAproduction server. PRISMA multiple data stream and resolution support provides users with the flexibility to accept MICR print jobs from all the sources in the enterprise, without regard for platform, printer language, protocol or network operating system. Commercial printers can accept MICR jobs from a wider range of customers without incurring expensive, time-consuming reprogramming. With MICR and PRISMA support, the Océ 750II can serve as a reliable device for lower volume production check printing and other MICR applications.
The system’s high-volume input and output capabilities contribute to high productivity for MICR applications. Its broad flexibility and versatility come from the system’s expanded range of paper support—from 16 lb bond to 110 lb index—for simplex, duplex, or “mixplex” applications. Universal paper input trays are easily adjustable to accommodate up to 11" x 17" paper. For even more uninterrupted productivity, there is an optional 4000-sheet high capacity paper drawer.
Advanced in-line finishing features let users do more work with just one system. Finishing choices include stapling, saddle stitching, and professionally trimmed signature booklets, along with post-engine cover and sheet insertion and three-hole punching. The Océ 750II MICR system offers remarkable ease of use. Toner and staples are the only consumables required, and the short paper path ensures more reliable operation.
