Océ announced the first installation for its Océ ColorStream 3500 inkjet printing system at service provider Corus in Fontenay-sous-Bois near Paris. Corus designs and prints transactional documents. Typical jobs include bank statements, insurance statements, pay slips, invoices, subscription and payment notices from around 400 companies across all business sectors. Corus typically prints 20,000 jobs every month.

The Océ ColorStream 3500 throughput of 246 fpm (60,600 A4 per hour) has reinforced Corus' capacities of 4-color printing to which the company began to migrate in 2004.

“We can combine print runs, group production streams and hence reduce the average postage cost that Corus passes on to its customers,” says Hervé Jourdan, managing director. “With this new setup, Corus can also [streamline its workflow].”

The ColorStream 3500 is available in simplex or duplex configurations from one to six colors, and is field upgradeable. The device uses water-based inks (either dye or pigment).
