Océ to Demonstrate Photo-book Printing
Océ is dedicating much of its PRINT 09 booth to photo-books, culminating in the daily production of a finished, full-colour book, called Where is My Birthday Cake?, which is based on a “photographic web log” created by photographer Jason Lee. The company will print photo books on JetStream technology, with hardcover books being bound offline. Océ also plans to demonstrate dust-jacket printing.
JetStream is a full-colour, inkjet-based press available in single- or dual-engine configurations. The speed range of the press line runs from the JetStream 750, with its ability to reach 328 fpm, to the JetStream 3000, which is able to reach a maximum speed of 656 feet per minute. To analyze the ROI of various JetStream models, Océ at PRINT 09 plans to debut its TrueCost software, engineered for “print providers to calculate pixel-precise pricing, cost accounting and chargeback.”
Océ also plans to apply Direct Smile software in the production of UV-coated, personalized calendars on its CS665 Pro press. First introduced in 2008, the CS665 Pro (available with an EFI controller) runs at 665 pages per minute while handling media of up to 13 x 19 inches. The machine is designed for substrates weighing up to 300 gsm.
