Symcor Purchases Second Océ JetStream
After installing its first
Océ JetStream 1500 around one year ago, Symcor, self-described as Canada’s
largest transactional printer, has bought a second 1500 inkjet system
for full-colour variable output at its Toronto-area facility.
“When we decided to
buy the Océ equipment, our goal was to convert existing black and white
print on pre-printed stock to forms replacement and gain more shares
in the market when it comes to full color volume,” stated Normand
Allard, Director of Product at Symcor.
Depending on the model, JetStream
systems can produce 600-dpi full-colour output at speeds between 500
and 3,030 A4-size pages per minute. The continuous JetStream technology
is available with either a 20.5- or 30-inch web width, while supporting
monthly duty cycles of up to 40-million impressions.
Océ also designed its JetStream
line to be upgradeable in the field, for increases in volume and speed,
as well as inline tools like integrated folding, perforating hole punching
and rewinding. The machine also includes MICR printing capabilities.
