At the forefront of the offset-to-digital transition
Océ ink and toner technologies are helping drive the transition from offset to digital printing across many applications, providing significant business and profit potential for digital print operations. The full color productivity of the Océ JetStream platform, for example, lets customers produce colorful, individualized direct mail in one work step, without the corresponding pre-production and cost of offset shells. In book printing, Océ technology transforms the supply chain, enabling books to be printed in short runs ahead of orders or one-off against an order.
