MICR printing

Background image

Highly sensitive negotiable documents like checks or insurance polices demand extra safety and protection against forging. And they have to be processed rapidly. For this the Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) printing technology was developed. Initiated by the American Bank Association, MICR was later adopted as ANSI X9.27 "E13-B" standard by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI). MICR is still in use today for all check clearing operations.

MICR printing is available for the Océ VarioPrint 6000 cutsheet printer as well as the Océ JetStream, Océ VarioStream 7000 and Océ VarioStream 8000 continuous feed printers.
