The Océ Gemini Instant Duplex technology forms the heart of the Océ VarioPrint 6160/6200/6250 printer line. Since duplex productivity is key, the main technological issues that have been solved during development were architectural and robustness related. Robustness, in our philosophy, not only means large lifetimes of parts and consumables, but also a robust, constant and consistent performance and print quality of both print processes for various media and environments. To realize the necessary print quality robustness, we have made various innovations in the OPC, LED-printhead, transfer efficiency, transfuse robustness and process control.

In this contribution we will first describe the essentials of the printing process of the Océ VarioPrint 6160/6200/6250 printer line. After that, we elaborate a little further on the influence of ambient humidity conditions on the OPC-belt and its production process. Finally, the transfer-transfuse process and the heat interaction with the OPC-belt is discussed. These items represent two related print quality problems that had to be solved in order to realize a productive duplex print engine on an integral level.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
