With production-class performance, the system improves workflow for high-quality applications like statements, invoices, personalized packets, reports, packing lists, and other business-critical documents. Océ Copy Press technology and unparalleled registration accuracy deliver offset-like print quality. A full range of automated capabilities help keep workflow running smoothly, while reducing costly, time-consuming manual labor. Productivity-boosting functionality includes full speed duplexing and online stapling and offset stacking.
