The Océ Color Copy Press system actually presses images into the paper for highly consistent color print quality with the look and feel of offset. The system prints with a constant speed a on a wide variety of media. The short path virtually eliminates paper jams.

Advantages

Constant speed

  • For all media types and weights
  • For simplex and duplex printing

Stable color quality

  • Offset look and feel: the monolayer image on paper has a less shiny and layered impression
  • Instead of ‘jumping’ to the paper, the toner is ‘pressed’ directly into the paper
  • Up to 50% lower temperature
  • Monocomponent toner works without developer; avoiding the deterioration of print quality over time
  • Paper preheating ensures 100% toner transfer without paper distortion

Use on a wide range of media

  • From plain paper to embossed media ranging in weight from 75 to 250 g/m²
  • Océ recommended media up to 300 g/m²
  • Special media like embossed papers can be printed because the toner is pressed into the media

Respecting the environment

  • No developer, no toner waste
  • No toner ‘jumping’ to the paper, eliminating toner pollution
  • 50% lower fusing temperature considerable reduction of energy consumption
  • Photoconductor also known as masterbelt made from non-harmful substances
  • The PIN-array corona unit generates extremely low ozone quantities, far below threshold values

Less paper jams

  • The toner is brought to the paper instead of the traditional method of bringing the paper to the toner.
  • The short paper path limits paper jams.

How the technology works

  • After creating the complete full color image on the rubber coated intermediate, the toner image is actually ‘pressed’ into the media.
  • The image is transfered using pressure and a temperature of about 90 C/195 F. This is about half the temperature normally needed to fuse in electrophotographic technology.
  • The process is engineered in such a way that the engine will run at a constant speed for all types of media.
