Oce announces Midland Information Resources has printed more than 500 million linear feet on its Oce VarioStream 9210 digital printer, the equivalent of one billion impressions. The technical manuals, educational materials and other documents produced on the Oce system represent valuable information products for Midland customers.
“Reliability is very important because our turn times are so quick, usually three days or less. The Oce system has to run continuously, and it does,” says Don Singleton, Midland Information Resources senior production manager. The ability to meet shrinking turnaround times gives Midland a solid competitive position and encourages repeat business.
Following installation in September 2004, the Oce VarioStream 9210 system at Midland was the first to reach 100 million linear feet in just one year. Then in September 2009, Midland reached 400 million linear. Now the system has reached a new milestone of 500 million linear feet. The single pass duplexing printer delivers monochrome output at 852 letter-size images per minute, or 196 fpm.
Midland Information Resources specializes in information management and distribution for medium-size enterprises to billion-dollar corporations in manufacturing, educational publishing and healthcare. Midland provides top quality, short run publications such as operator manuals, technical guides, parts catalogs and education materials.
The Océ platform helps produce these complex, content-rich documents. Jobs range from one to 3,500 copies. Books are saddle-stitched or perfect bound. Many of the informational publications Midland prints have extensive half-tone coverage.
