Océ Global Document Solutions Case Study

Company Profile:

In today’s dynamic business arena announcements of company mergers and acquisitions have become quite common. What may not be so familiar, however, is what happens after the announcement is made. The need to merge business operations and computing platforms is critical for success. Of course, this  must happen all while the new organization ensures superior service and customer continuity.

Before the merger, XRC was heavily focused in the On-Demand market, but realized that customers have further require-ments for mailing, statements and other documentoriented services. 

“We either had to build it ourselves or link with someone who added the services we lacked,” said Roger Gimbel, Director of Worldwide Operations and Marketing for Global Document Solutions, and president of XRC. ADM did not have an On-Demand business and was likewise studying the gaps in their service offerings and reaching a similar conclusion. “Merging versus building was a matter of economies, time and the ability to expand immediately. We accomplished it in three months rather than three years,” declared Gimbel.

Direct Imaging Colour Printing Océ Direct Imaging Produces Inherently High Colour Consistency

This white paper describes the Océ Direct Imaging colour printing process, which uses seven toner colours and partitive colour mixing. This process is insensitive to effects like humidity and temperature, and produces inherently high colour consistency. Also described is the way in which CMYK values are printed on paper with the seven colours.

This white paper is part of a set of white papers to explain the Océ technologies and applications. See also the white paper ‘Trapping technology’.

1 Direct Imaging: inherently high colour consistency
The Océ CPS800/CPS900 is based on Direct Imaging (DI) printing technology, with seven toner colours and partitive colour mixing. Direct Imaging is a digital printing process, in which the toner image is created directly, without charging, organic photoconductor, laser or LED illumination or other external means. Direct Imaging is therefore insensitive to effects like humidity and temperature, and produces inherently high colour consistency.
More knowledge about this colour technology will help users to achieve better and more accurate colour print quality, to find interesting printing applications and, in general, to understand the operation of the Océ CPS800/CPS900 colour printer. 

Océ Outlines Considerations When Selecting a Wide Format Inkjet Printer

TRUMBULL, CT – July 31, 2012 – Wide format inkjet printers enable users to print bigger printouts than the standard media sizes and can easily produce images of startlingly vivid colors, sharp lines and precise details – something many traditional printing presses cannot. These devices range from small inexpensive consumer models to large, more expensive machines used in a business environment and provide a variety of options and capabilities. Applications include full-color presentations, signage, posters, banners, CAD drawings and GIS maps.

When selecting a wide format inkjet printer, it is important to select the equipment that is best suited to your business’s specific needs and goals. Océ, a Canon Group company and an international leader in digital document management, outlines below how to determine which inkjet printing solution is right for you.

Océ ColorStream 10000 Flex Press Exceeds Expectations at Royal Printing

 Trumbull, CT – July 25, 2012 – Océ, a Canon Group company and an international leader in digital document management, today announced that Royal Printing Company has replaced three offset presses with the Océ ColorStream® 10000 Flex Press and has reached unprecedented levels of productivity.

Why Digital and Why Now?

Royal Printing, founded in 1961, has been Oklahoma's premier ballot printer for over 50 years. With the introduction of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) that was about to change. HAVA mandates that ballot printers accommodate the exacting requirements of electronic voting machines, and that they are able to produce variable-size, variable-color, and variable-data (sequentially numbered and bar coded) ballots.

Océ Outlines Three Main Considerations When Selecting a Large Format Printer for GIS Applications

 TRUMBULL, CT – July 10, 2012 – As the demand for GIS information continues to increase, organizations that rely on printing GIS applications (e.g. topographic maps, population overlays and aerial photographs) must ensure that they select the proper printing solution that maximizes productivity, reduces turnaround time and provides user-friendly operation. Océ, a Canon Group company and an international leader in digital document management, outlines what goes into printing GIS applications and the three main considerations for selecting a large format printer that will help organizations achieve the most optimal output.

Printing GIS Applications: What is Involved

The majority of GIS users spend a significant amount of time managing information to create a geographical representation of that data. The final step of this process – printing that representation – is often the most daunting. Unlike printing routine documents to a common printer, where almost all document preparation is automatic, GIS applications require operators to select a variety of settings to ensure optimal output. These settings include the printing method used, output size, print setting quality, media selection and finishing options.
