The system was first demonstrated at Océ OpenHouse 2004 last month, in Poing, Germany, with the commercial rollout now commencing.
Saskia Willems, Océ VarioPrint 3090 international product manager, says the system allows companies to respond to the challenges they face in producing mission-critical documents.
“The ability to handle multiplatform environments and datastreams, short print windows, personalisation and distribution of print volumes are challenges that can be turned into business advantages when handled well,” says Willems.
“The Océ VarioPrint 3090 lets an organisation produce business-critical documents wherever they’re needed. With the required productivity, reliability, flexibility and print quality”.
Océ says the VarioPrint 3090 can handle stringent printing requirements in central or decentral production environments with up to 750,000 images per month. It is designed with the flexibility to easily handle long print runs, multiple smaller jobs or proofs and variations in media types. The system prints 85 images per minute, simplex and duplex, and facilitates long unattended document runs with such features as front-loading and load-while-run paper trays; independent linkage of input trays; air-separated paper feed; and optional online finishing.
“Our customers often produce documents from a number of different sources such as Unix servers, mainframes, SAP, or a combination of sources. Such mixed datastreams are very common when companies generate bills, statements, policies, personalised one-to-one documents and the like,” says Willems.
“Combined with PRISMA software, the Océ VarioPrint 3090 prints well from all these sources. The smart front servers efficiently accept and process datastreams from a company’s host systems and/or network. And the powerful controller ensures high performance and productive printing.”
Océ says the VarioPrint 3090 can form the basis for a more extended print solution.
The system is designed to work with Océ PRISMA software modules. These give companies a single point of production control and can be used to manage multiple Océ and non-Océ systems, for example by providing load balancing, oversight of all print activities and resource management. Companies can also add online or offline finishing units.
“We consider the Océ VarioPrint 3090 as one of the elements of a company’s transaction document toolbox. Océ specialises in helping companies squeeze the most out of their investment. The Océ VarioPrint 3090—with its extendibility, easy usability and maintenance and high uptime—is a good example of this,” says Willems.
Océ designed the Vario line to produce documents more effectively in today’s variable world, with its omnipresent networks and mixed data sources. The robust Vario systems help people get information on and off the information superhighway, both by accepting data from a variety of sources (variable input), and by putting this information onto paper or scanning it to file (variable output).
