This is the first time a device has received a five-star rating for image quality since BLI began the field testing of production units.

Redefining Excellence

Raising the bar on efficiency, versatility, sustainability, and image quality. Designed from the ground up to deliver robust, reliable performance.

The solution designed for today’s demands.

Imagine a new, highly stable technology that always delivers consistent, quality images. A truly digital technology that doesn’t require high temperatures and electrical charges. A high-speed production technology that produces zero ozone.

Introducing the Océ VarioPrint 135/120/110 series of monochrome digital presses, pairing Océ DirectPress technology and PRISMAsync operations management with Canon in-line finishing for a unified solution that pushes print productivity even higher.

Also known as the Océ VarioPrint DP Line, these models are based on the Océ DirectPress technology, a new, exceptionally stable imaging technology that removes variables that can negatively a ect print quality and consistency. Combine this with Canon in-line finishing for an end-to-end solution that rewrites the rules for image consistency, intuitive operation, system configurability, and performance uptime. It will help you cut costs, reduce your environmental footprint, and expand your capabilities and business opportunities. It simply redefines excellence in black-and-white production printing.

True End-to-End Solution

From workflow solutions through printing and finishing, the Océ VarioPrint DP Line delivers true digital production with Océ DirectPress technology.

High production performance from one compact system

Customers want professional, finished documents, whether they’re simple booklets or complex manuals. The Océ VarioPrint DP Line delivers, from preprinted inserting and high-capacity stacking, folding, and punching to stapling, booklet-making, and glue binding. All options can be integrated into one end-to-end solution for hands-o production workflows and quality documents that appeal to your customers.

Configurable workflow support

The Océ PRISMAsync controller and user interface can be set up to meet your precise needs. Choose the processing modes that fit your current workflow and add options as needed. Depending on your production requirements, you can make the job Scheduler, job editing, and DocBox functions available to operators. And when your workflow requirements change or grow, additional Océ PRISMA software modules can be added to increase system performance and throughput.

Image Consistency

Performance that makes every page a reflection of your business. With the Océ VarioPrint DP Line, you can consistently produce high-quality prints on a wide range of media across jobs, systems, and time.

Stability and reliability

One of the hallmarks of professional-quality printing is text and images that look and feel the same throughout every job, day after day and run after run. The new Océ VarioPrint DP Line uses Océ DirectPress technology to ensure consistent, high- quality printing on a wide range of media. The result is predict- able, o set-like output without streaks, striping, or banding— work that satisfies customers and keeps them coming back.

Great output on a wide range of media

Océ DirectPress technology uses a low fusing temperature that allows you to print on a wide range of media. The image is pressed directly onto the paper, so you can use structured
or textured stock.

Advanced active registration

Duplex printed documents predominate today’s monochrome print market, and customers know that tight registration is a sign of quality printing. The Océ VarioPrint DP Line features an intelligent, sensor-controlled process that enables tight front- to-back registration. This helps ensure that you can handle the high-visibility, quality-intensive jobs that your customers need.

Black and white in a colorful world

While most documents today are created in color, not all need to print that way. But then not all black-and-white printers handle color files well, either. The Océ VarioPrint DP Line uses Océ ScreenPoint technology to reproduce color halftones and photographs as grayscale images with excellent resolution, dense black fills, and precise fine lines. Plus, you can adjust contrast and control darkness and lightness, without sacrificing any detail, so every image is sure to live up to your customers’ expectations.

Ease of Use

Operators get intuitive workflow for immediate control and management of even the most complex jobs.

Built for user-friendly operation

Today’s customers expect better response and faster turnaround, and the VarioPrint DP Line helps make this happen. The operator panel combines the controller, user interface, and engine in one integrated concept. Its large touch-screen interface makes buttons a thing of the past, minimizing learning curves and reducing time and money spent on training. With the intuitive, modular interface, operators can perform a variety of functions effortlessly.

Efficient production management

PRISMAsync makes handling complex print jobs easy. The unique user interface with intelligent job Scheduler displays every queued job and an overview of the day’s work schedule. Jobs can be quickly rearranged as your needs or priorities change. An intuitive, visual interface groups jobs into a logical order by media type and displays up-to-the minute completion status. Visible from a distance, the Operator Attention Light displays the status of the printer. It signals upcoming operator interventions, such as media and consumable refills, giving you time to avoid interruptions in production.

Easy and efficient media handling

A customized, define-once media catalog drives your workflow with all the printer settings needed to handle media consistently and productively. Océ Paper Logic helps ensure correct media loading, even with preprinted or prepunched stock, helping to reduce errors and waste with first-time-right output.

Uniform, consistent operation

A single operating concept on all black-and-white and color printers driven by Océ PRISMAsync simplifies job handling for printing, scanning, and copying. This helps reduce training requirements and increases productivity, because operators can spend less time running the press and managing output, allowing the production start to be utilized more effectively.

Advanced job management and editing

With the optional DocBox, advanced document preparation and editing at both the job and page levels can be managed from a single point of control. This enables last-minute changes to a document at the printer, without going back to prepress, thus saving time and money.

Perfect-Fit System

Blend speed, input, finishing, and workflow to design a system that’s the ideal match for your operation.

Performance that fits

With duplex print speeds of up to 135, 120, and 110 images per minute, the Océ VarioPrint DP Line can be easily configured to meet your requirements for printing, scanning, paper input, finishing options, and workflow. And no matter the speed, automatic duplexing is available for all media up to 300gsm. Use it to fit your needs from scanning to printing and intelligent prepress to full, in-line production. Or, replace multiple existing machines with a single, all-digital multipurpose production device.

Multiple scanning options

Monochrome and color scanning capabilities let you offer services beyond black-and-white workflows. One-pass duplex scanner options include Scan-to-File, Scan-to-USB, Scan-to-E-mail, and Scan-to-DocBox, a repository of jobs that provides fast storage and access to jobs that may need to be rerun at a later date. Automated intelligence recognizes photo and text elements on every page, so print quality can be adjusted to deliver optimal results.

Versatile paper feed

Four standard paper trays are conveniently placed under the engine, conserving valuable floor space. An optional four-tray module expands capacity up to 8,600 sheets for hours of unattended production and features air separation and suction feed for productive, reliable feeding. The VarioPrint DP Line offers automatic sheet-size detection in all trays and Océ Paper Logic to help ensure correct orientation of every page. When duplexing, intelligent sensors provide near-perfect registration accuracy to help ensure a high-quality appearance.

Wide range of media

Every print provider wants to be able to use the widest possible array of substrates. Yet many light production printers are not able to run lighter or heavier-weight stocks efficiently. The Océ VarioPrint DP Line can accommodate substrates ranging from 14 lb. Bond to 110 lb. Cover (50—300gsm) in both the internal and the external paper input modules.

Streamlined functionality

A comprehensive and versatile range of modular, in-line finishing options helps eliminate the need for costly, space-consuming o -line equipment. The VarioPrint DP Line delivers labor-saving, efficient finishing operations in a singular footprint.

Modules for saddle-stitching, stacking, folding, and in-line trimming help you to produce and finish more jobs in-line, without the need for operator intervention. This shortens the time needed to complete a job and helps you to meet even the tightest deadlines.


Productive printing is more than just speed. System availability, reliability, uptime, and efficient media handling all play a part.

Consistent performance that lets you do more

While some systems almost grind to a halt when printing on heavy media, the Océ VarioPrint DP Line adjusts for different- weight media on the fly, so you can count on nonstop performance with high print quality. Océ EnergyLogic measures the fusing requirements of incoming media and adjusts the fusing and print speed to match, so production can continue without interruption for mixed media documents.

Start printing immediately

Océ EnergyLogic also enables the system to start printing as soon as sufficient power is available. The system gradually accelerates until it’s fully warmed up.

Intuitive workflow for nonstop productivity

Océ PRISMAsync provides intelligent job scheduling controls for uninterrupted production and smooth workload planning. The 15-inch, full-color, touch-screen operator panel provides full control for scheduling, printing, scanning, copying, and even advanced job editing. The display shows the complete production schedule, indicating when each job will be finished. It also provides color-coded alerts to inform operators of upcoming requirements, such as toner or media refills, to help keep production moving.

Take control of your press’s uptime

No service call is the best service call. You can increase your uptime by taking advantage of the Printer Operation Care program. Requiring no training, this program allows operators to replace certain parts themselves in an easy and secure way. When service intervention is needed, an innovative service concept helps ensure the shortest turnaround time.

ESP810 Main

When it comes to creating custom duplex solutions, ESP is the industry leader. The ESP “H” pattern solutions give you the ability to use 2 printers for simplex applications or simply convert to a duplex operation quickly, without tools and without moving any equipment. With three different “H” pattern solutions available, you can count on ESP to make the most of duplex printing systems.

ESP810 “H1” Pattern Duplex Solution

ESP810 H1

The patented ESP810 H1 places the two printers with the operator panels facing each other. This solution keeps the operators work area between the two printers. The output from each printer is at opposite ends when running in simplex mode. When in duplex mode, the input and output are on the same end of the system.

ESP820 “H2” Pattern Duplex Solution

ESP820 H2

The ESP820 H2 configuration allows printers to be placed so that the workflow moves in one direction. With the pre- and post- processing equipment at opposite ends. This solution provides better workflow in data centers with multiple duplex printing systems.

ESP830 “H3” Pattern Duplex Solution

ESP830 H3

The ESP830 H3 solution can be set-up for simplex highlight color or standard duplex printing. The ESP830 H3 works exactly like the ESP820 H2 solution with the additional ability to print side “A” on printer one in one color and send side “A” into printer two to add a highlight color.


  • Three distinct solutions
    • ESP810 H1 for standard duplex processing
    • ESP820 H2 for standard duplex processing
    • ESP830 H3 for duplex black and white and highlight color applications
  • Easily converted – from simplex to duplex operation without moving equipment.
  • Compact design – footprint can be as small as 20′ x 30′, including the pre- and post- processing equipment.
  • Diamond plate bridge – Covers the paper path, allowing the operator to walk over the system.
  • Air pump – For turnbars. Helps reduce paper drag and static build-up.

  1. Customer Changeable Developer is available allowing the operator to change the developer, helping to increase system availability for MICR or highlight color printing. Please contact your IBM sales representative for availability status.
  2. Maximum printing rate is the maximum number of pages of the indicated size and configuration that can be printed at the constant speed of paper movement shown for each printer. Rates for pages of different sizes and configuration can be calculated by dividing the form length into the printer speed. Actual printing rate will be less if the printer cannot reach this rate due to complexity or density of the data or the ability of the system to deliver data at this rate.
  3. Maximum usage is based on operating 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, at maximum printing rate with normal maintenance and operations activity. IBM does not recommend reaching this monthly maximum on consistent basis.

Printable Area

The printer can print to the horizontal page perforations and within 1⁄2-inch (12.7 mm) of either vertical (tractor hole) edge of the form. With tractorless paper, the printer can print to 1⁄2-inch (12.7 mm) from either edge of the form without print quality degradation.

Print quality may be degraded when printing near folding perforations, an internal perforation, or any cut in the form. To ensure correct operation and print quality, maintain the following distances:

  • From non-folding and internal perforations: 0.05-inch (1.27 mm)
  • From folding perforations: for text, OCR, and bar codes: 0.33-inch (8.5 mm); for images and solid-area fill: 0.05- inch (1.27 mm)
  • From binder holes and cuts: 0.1 inch-(2.54 mm).

Media Specifications

The Infoprint 4100-HD1/HD2 and 4100-PD1/PD2 printers accept the following media:

  • Media types:
    • Preprinted or blank fanfold forms, roll-feed paper, some labels
  • Media widths:
    • Tractor Feed
      • 8.3 to 19.5 inches (210 mm to 495 mm) with tractor feed
    • Tractorless Feed
      • 8.0 to 19.5 inches (203 mm to 495 mm) with tractorless feed
  • Media lengths:
    • 5.82 to 17 inches (148 mm to 432 mm) with tractor feed using the internal stacker
    • 5.82 to 54 inches (148 mm to 1372 mm) with the Signature Page feature and suitable post-processing equipment
  • Media weights:
    • The following paper weights are supported:
      • Duplex pinfeed for Infoprint 4100-HD1/HD2 supports paper weights between 12 pounds and 41 pounds (45 to 157.5 gsm) are supported. Post-Processing equipment is required for paper less than 16 pounds.
      • Dual simplex pinfeed for Infoprint 4100-HD1/HD2 supports paper weights between 12 and 42 pounds (45 and 157.5 gsm) are supported. Post processing equipment is required for paper weights less than 16 pounds. Dual simplex pinfeed or Infoprint 


The Infoprint 4100-HD1/HD2 printers support a maximum of two attachments. These attachments can be:

  • System/370 parallel channel
  • ESCON channel
  • Token Ring (TCP/IP)
  • Ethernet (TCP/IP)
  • Gigabit Ethernet FICON

The two attachments may be the same (for example, 2 ESCON channels), or mixed (for example, 1 ESCON and 1 Token-Ring). The exception is that the printer can have only 1 TCP/IP attachment of any flavor. You cannot have 2 Token-Ring or 2 FDDI attachments, or a combination of 1 Token-Ring or 1 FDDI attachments.

When printing in duplex configuration, only one attachment can be active at a time. If both attachments are to the same system, or to a tightly-coupled system, and the attachments are of the same type (example, both are ESCON or both are parallel channel), then switching between the two attachments can be performed dynamically by the host system. If the attachments or host differ, or the hosts are not tightly-coupled, then the switch must be performed manually by the operator. The printer must be disabled from the current system and attachment before it can be enabled to the other attachment.
