Digital Meets Offset Power at Océ Production Printing Summit
POING, GERMANY—June 10, 2011—Nearly 2,000 international decision makers and experts from the printing community visited the Océ Production Printing Summit 2011, which took place at the Océ Leadership and Technology Hub from June 7-10, 2011.
The summit highlighted the next generation of digital high-speed color printing solutions and showcased variable-data printing in transaction and transpromo printing, direct-mail and loyalty program applications and security printing. Future-proof graphic arts applications—such as publishing-on-demand, digital newspapers, magazines, hybrid catalogs and manuals—with promising growth paths were presented together with manroland.
Visitors to the event obtained cutting-edge information about manroland and Océ. The companies have joined forces and developed an application-related combination of print data management, digital and offset printing, integrated workflow and post-processing solutions.
“The value-added print chain in conventional printing is undergoing a change as, for example, hybrid products become more and more popular,” asserted Sebastian Landesberger, executive vice president, Océ Production Printing. “With our inkjet technologies, we were demonstrating a combination of top quality and maximum individualization as well as their value proposition for state-of-the-art print communication.”
“We were showing how inkjet printing systems supplement industrial offset printing,” added Gerd Finkbeiner, CEO of manroland. “In our role as front runners, we and Océ 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.”
