Oce Printing Systems GmbH and manroland, within the framework of their strategic alliance, are launching a series of events in the Technology Centers of Offenbach (May 16 to 20, 2011) and Poing/Munich (June 7 to 10, 2011).

Under the motto “Digital meets Offset Power,” manroland and Oce will present high-quality offset printing and variable high-speed inkjet printing. From May 16 to 20, manroland invites its graphics industry customers in all segments and sizes of operation, as well as those involved in the advertising industry, to the “Sheetfed Summit” in the manroland Print Technology Center in Offenbach. More than 1,000 trade visitors from all over the world are expected to attend the event.

manroland will present two high-productivity Oce inkjet printing systems for digital webfed printing, integrated for the first time into graphics workflows. Gerd Finkbeiner, manroland CEO, says, “We are showing how inkjet printing systems supplement industrial offset printing. We are not placing our faith in insular solutions, but in integrated workflows. In our role as front runners, we and Oce have ambitious aims. We want successful customers who are participating in the dynamic growth of digital print production, and we are committed to supplying them with solutions that are at the same time groundbreaking and future-proof.”

The Oce Production Printing Summit will take place from June 7 to 10 in the Oce Leadership Technology Hub in Poing/Munich. The events will focus on the complete value creation chain for production printing, from individualized content through to the finished end product. Oce will present growth applications in high-productivity digital printing embedded in workflows for the graphics industry, such as publishing on demand, digital printing of newspapers and magazines, hybrid catalogs and manuals, as well as direct mail and loyalty applications.

“Individualized high-speed digital printing is an attractive field of business that is increasingly supplementing industrial print runs,” explains Sebastian Landesberger, executive vice president, Oce production printing. “The print value creation chain is undergoing change, and particularly the intelligent combination of offset and digital printing opens up new lucrative business models for our customers. With, for example, our new Oce ColorStream 3500 and Oce JetStream family high-speed, full-color inkjet printing systems, at the Oce Production Printing Summit we will be showing a winning combination of highest quality and maximum individualization as well as their value proposition for modern print communication.”
