Responding to market requirements for an integrated print line and streamlined digital document automation, OcÚ is a leading member of a core team of key players in the digital printing industry that have joined forces in a collaborative effort to develop a Universal Printer Pre- and Post-processing interface (UP3I). OcÚ Digital Document Systems is the first vendor on the market and the first member of the consortium to integrate this important interface into its products and to offer it for general customer use.
OcÚ offers full support and integration of the UP3I interface with all high-performance continuous forms digital printing systems in the OcÚ VarioStream« product line and the OcÚ VarioPrint« product line. The UP3I interface makes it possible to communicate with all the components in the system and transmit dynamic controls to trigger changes in cutting and folding formats. As a result, operators can control all of the attributes of a print job as it runs through the printing process chain - from the printer through trimming and binding equipment.
Development of an open, expandable, intelligent interface standard
Designed as an open architecture to interface with process control systems like the OcÚ family of architected workflow software solutions, UP3I offers an open, expandable, and intelligent interface standard for all hardware components in the digital print process. With UP3I, you can centralize and unify process control for all equipment in your print line, laying a critical foundation for computer-controlled manufacturing in digital document production.
