Oce Pagestream 466 Plus Paper Path

Advanced Paper Transport for a New Level of Forms Flexibility

The key design feature of the remarkable new PageStream 466 Plus is an innovative paper transport system that enables the use of both traditional pinfed and pinless forms.

In fact, the PageStream 466 Plus is the first digital continuous forms printer in it’s class that helps you cut paper cost as well as production time. With integrated pinless technology, you benefit from myriad advantages. There’s no need to use pre-punched roll paper, so you print more efficiently by using the full surface area – to a width of 18 1/4”. With this capability, you can use wider range of paperweights, and print 6×9” forms, two across landscape or three-across portrait. Because paper usage is reduced, you save on paper costs, require less lead time to order and eliminate the inconvenient edge trimmings.

And that’s just the beginning. Océ patented pinless technology means faster speeds, shorter service time, and easier handling. The PageStream 466 Plus is more reliable than traditional pinfed devices, thanks to electronic synchronization that ensures precise registration on every page. What’s more, you can switch from pinless to pinfed paper at any time- seamlessly.

One Printer, Multiple Resolutions… More Flexibility

Image quality today is a critical requirement for any high-performance printing systems. With this in mind, the PageStream 466 Plus offers the new multiple resolution mode feature, which provides simultaneous support for multiple resolutions in a single machine.

The PageStream 466 Plus accepts input resolutions of 240 or 300 dpi and prints them on a 600 dpi LED array, as standard. The result is greater flexibility, more effective use of your printer resources, and the ability to process legacy applications without time -consuming applications rewrites.

Next Generation Controller Power with Room to Grow

Oce Pagestream 466 Prisma Software

What makes the PageStream 466 Plus such a production printing powerhouse? The new SRA2 controller features nine parallel processors and significantly more power. You benefit from performance that is two times faster, memory capacity that is four times greater, and more connectivity and flexibility than you imagined possible. All of which gives the PageStream 466 Plus the muscle to handle the most complex applications and fast, new interfaces like Ethernet with ease. In fact, no other architecture is so well suited for current demands for flexible performance.

The SRA2 controller is the newest generation of the same SRA technology that has been powering PageStream printers since their inception. The
initial expectations for this revolutionary architecture have been proven time and time again, through platform changes, performance upgrades, functional enhancements and memory expansion.

What you really want to know, of course, is will the capital investment you make in the PageStream 466 Plus today continue to bring future returns? Look no further- with innovations like resolution switching and the future-proof SRA2 controller, you can rely on the PageStream 466 Plus to handle legacy, backup, existing and emerging applications today and for years to come.

Connectivity Plus

Need to connect your PageStream 466 Plus with multiple platforms? The PageStream 466 Plus integrates into most industry-standard host and server environments. Of course, it is supported by the PRISMA family of servers that extend the performance of PageStream printers across a broad range of processing platforms. Meanwhile, an integrated Type II intelligent paper processing interface (IPPI) enables complete workflow management through the attachment of up to six conventional pre-or post-processing devices.

Paper Handling Flexibility for the Next Millennium

The PageStream 466 Plus expands your choice media. With the ability to switch from pinless pinfed paper feeds, you can process many more types, weights, and sizes of paper. Delivering crisp, clear imaging quality, page after page, printing on non- traditional paper stock is practically a non-issue. And with value-added options such as Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) this capability is extende even further.

Making More Economic Sense with a Quick Change Developer Station
In addition to paper-handling flexibility, the PageStream 466 also supports the QCDS (quick change developer station) technology. With the QCDS you can switch out the standard developer station and print MICR – only when you need to. Just one more innovate way that the PageStream 466 Plus lets you make the most o your printer investment.

  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.
