In Stand A44, Hall 6, Océ’s latest hardware and software solutions will cover 14,000 square feet (1,300 square meters) of space. Attendees can experience live application demonstrations, real production workflows and new product introductions designed to help print professionals take business beyond the ordinary in publishing, personalization, promotion, and corporate and technical printing.
Digital book printing
Océ will demonstrate a full range of cut sheet and continuous feed print-on-demand and short-run book manufacturing technology.

Personalized transactional and direct mail printing are experiencing rapid growth. By combining database-driven, personalized messaging with transactional and/or direct mail messages, print professionals can engage recipients through relevant and personal direct marketing pieces and TransPromo bills and statements. High-speed, digital black-and-white and color printing systems from Océ already tuned for personalization include the Océ VarioStream 9240 and Océ VarioStream 8000 continuous feed systems, the Océ JetStream and the Océ CS650 Pro and Océ CPS900 color systems.
