One of the first broadly adopted environmental initiatives is the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive, or RoHS. Each Océ VarioStream 7000 is fully RoHS compliant. In addition, we are working to insure that the product also complies with similar initiatives being implement in Asia and North America. But compliance with regulations is only the bare minimum. Unlike other printing technologies, the Océ VarioStream 7000 requires no special cleaning fluids which subsequently require safe disposal. All filters and parts changed by operators do not require special disposal. All parts exchanged by our engineers are, where practical, recycled by Océ. The technology is designed to be safe for the operators and the environment.
State-of-the-art paper handling
Many environmentally conscious customers would like to use paper with more recycled content. Traditionally, recycled content paper could pose print quality problems that would be unacceptable to end customers. However, Océ engineered a new toner transfer system, called “Enhanced Print Quality”. The result is better image quality, even on paper that wasn’t originally designed for use with this type of technology.
Better power usage
With the Océ VarioStream 7000, Océ has introduced a new level of performance. The Océ VarioStream 7650 is fast enough to replace two older printers. By replacing two older printers with one faster printer, electrical consumption can be reduced. The result is higher productivity and reduced electrical consumption. In addition, all Océ VarioStream 7000 systems come with a standby power mode. By using this mode, electrical consumption is less than 5% of the maximum power usage.
