An early digital pioneer, Swedish print house Holmbergs was looking to invest in the latest technology, to meet growing demand for short run book printing. Under pressure to boost productivity and cut costs, the company also wanted to offer customers more scope for customisation and personalisation.
We developed a solution based on Océ PRISMAproduction software, and enhanced by an Océ ColorStream high-speed inkjet printer and Tecnau LaserMax finishing system. This enabled Holmbergs to offer a new ‘book of one’ production model, with automated workflows from job submission to delivery.
Our solution led to a sharp rise in print volumes, by providing faster, more economical one-off book printing, with no loss of quality. It also enabled Holmbergs to offer customers greater scope for personalising their books, with details like unique ISBN barcodes, logos and images.
A highly versatile colour inkjet web press that offers both exceptional quality and flexibility, the Océ ColorStream 6000 Chroma is designed for the fast, reliable printing of mail, publishing and commercial applications
