Drivers and Software

Combining the reduced costs of inkjet with the media and application flexibility of sheet-fed production, the Océ VarioPrint i300 inkjet color digital press provides an advantageous proposition to print providers who are looking to grow their business by:

  • Cost effectively running monochrome and color print jobs on one engine
  • Moving mono applications to higher-value/higher-margin color products
  • Extending the cross over point for digital print versus offset, helping more pages migrate to digital print

Enjoy peak productivity

The Océ VarioPrint i300 digital color press prints up to 294 letter images per minute or more than 8,500 duplex letter sheets per hour. It targets heavy production volumes of 1-10 million pages per month and supports a large variety of paper sizes up to 13.9" x 19.7" (B3) format. Up to 8 paper trays feed a broad range of standard offset and inkjet substrates from 16 lb. bond to 110 lb. cover. Proven Océ VarioPrint 6000+ input and output technologies help enable a white-sheet-in, finished-application-out workflow required to meet the demands of today's shorter run, fast turnaround print market place. Reliable high-speed sheet-fed inkjet production printing is powered by Océ iQuarius technologies, a range of innovations that allow for robust, high quality prints on sheets of paper, at high speed.

Superb Quality

Leveraging print head technology from the proven Océ ColorStream inkjet web presses, the VarioPrint i300 color inkjet printer provides 600 x 600 dpi output with drop size modulation to deliver 1,200 dpi perceived image quality. Automated inline quality control detects nozzle failure and automatically applies compensation to help maintain quality.

Maximizing uptime

Uptime is crucial to meet today's demanding SLAs. For Océ VarioPrint i300 color inkjet presses, uptime is enhanced by automated maintenance routines which help secure uninterrupted production; simultaneously helping maintain print quality, productivity and uptime. Engineered with “Sense and Support” maintenance, the Océ VarioPrint i300 printer helps minimize unplanned service activities and optimize planned maintenance.

DrivePress efficiency

The scalable, high performance PRISMAsync controller allows users to plan jobs ahead of time and provide adequate information to help keep the machine running without unplanned stops.


Océ iQuarius™ technologies empower high-speed, sheet-fed inkjet versatility:

  • iQuarius proprietary CMYK inks provide outstanding quality and productivity with a broad color gamut, print robustness, and media compatibility at low inkjet cost.
  • Sheet Entry Control via the Sentry unit provides full-speed automated detection of any paper deformations that could lead to a print head touch, purging sheets without interrupting production.
  • Precision Sheet Control is provided by a seamless metal belt that holds inkjet imaged sheets flat with air suction, helping move them smoothly, precisely and at high speed through the press.
  • An Instant Drying Unit uses four distinct drying principles at once: induction-heated drum; carbon infrared radiation (CIR); air impingement; and air suction ? producing a high-quality, robust printed product.
  • An Inline Quality Control system prints a test/nozzle failure detection sheet at regular intervals (operator configurable) and scans it in-line applying compensation when needed, automatically to help maintain quality.

Print head technology from the industry leading Océ ColorStream delivers up to 80 million drops per second while providing precision imaging at 600 x 600 dpi with multilevel drop size modulation for image quality with the visual perception of 1,200 dpi.

Media input and output technologies from the market proven Océ VarioPrint 6000+ series provides reliable, high-performance feeding with air separation and suction feeding along with seamless tray switching and true "all media from all trays" capability*. 

Proven PRISMAsync controller platform offers intuitive operation and intelligent media management helping drive maximum productivity. PRISMAsync handles native PDF and IPDS/AFP data input and combined with Océ PRISMA workflow software it enables workflow alignment within the shop for maximum efficiency and productivity.

Auto-maintenance routines including automatic print head refresh modes and print head maintenance during operation help maintain optimal quality and productivity while helping reduce operator intervention.

"Sense and Support" predictive maintenance helps to minimize operator intervention and maximize uptime.
