Océ at IFRA Expo 2010
IFRA Expo is the leading event of the
newspaper and media industry. The 40th edition is being held at the new Messe
Hamburg this year. From 4–6 October 2010, IFRA Expo 2010 is dedicated to taking
a closer look at some of the critical issues in newspaper production. IFRA Expo
highlights the key trends in their respective fields.
At IFRA Expo 2010, Océ will present how
efficiently the new Océ JetStream series handles multiple runs of thousands of
digital newspapers in one shift.
Océ JetStream prints 3,000 36-page tabloid
newspapers per hour
Océ pioneered the digital newspaper market
with the Océ Digital Newspaper Network®. More than 25 million newspaper copies
have been produced globally through this network since 2001, making Océ the
world market leader in digital newspaper production.
It was only two years ago that Océ introduced
the Océ JetStream series, the worlds strongest color digital inkjet portfolio.
In 2009, the company extended the product range of the Océ JetStream to address
specific volume requirements for short-run and on-demand newspaper production.
The Océ JetStream systems print up to 3,000 36-page tabloid newspapers per hour
or 23,000 copies per eight hour shift. Each copy is potentially an individual
product, printed digitally with no loss of speed or quality compared to more
traditional printing methods.
“The introduction of the Océ JetStream series
of digital full-color inkjet presses extended Océ production capabilities into
higher run lengths, unprecedented productivity and full-color quality on par
with traditional newspapers produced on offset presses,” says Sebastian Landesberger,
Executive Vice President Océ Production Printing. “Digital production speeds
now are competitive to short-run offset production and within the scope
required for regional and international newspapers. As the market leader in
digital newspaper publishing, Océ offers its customers new opportunities to
dive into attractive business models by using Océ inkjet technology.”
