Production Printing and Print On Demand Solutions
Hitachi Printing Solutions America, Inc. (HPRSA) has firmly established itself as the company with Production Printing and Print On Demand solutions for a broad spectrum of users. These users range from data centers and in-house reproduction centers to commercial printers. Hitachi supplies heavy-duty, high-speed printers and printer solutions for the POD market, from easy-to-use software, to high-volume production printing systems and high-speed network printers.

Digital Document Publisher 70e
The DDP 70e is a very reliable print engine from HPRSA that delivers performance and reliability with an easy-to-use interface and professional, publishing-quality finishing. It features an engine that supports peak printing volumes up to 600,000 pages per month.

This new variant of the DDP 70 engine with the designator “e” adds an enhanced printer controller and enhanced print quality to the already powerful 70 ppm production printer. Better print quality is achieved with improvements in laser dot size consistency and enhanced photographic efficiency. A new optical unit enhances print quality by stabilizing the laser dot size. The range of laser dot size fluctuation has been reduced to 25% of the previous fluctuation range. This increased control sharpens the image significantly. And an improved developer unit provides higher quality prints by increasing photographic efficiency. This is accomplished by a 20% reduction in the carrier particle size.

MICR Digital Document Publisher 70e
HPRSA, a global leader in digital printer technology, helps customers meet their production printing deadlines with high quality magnetic ink documents. The DDP 70e with MICR is a reliable, feature-rich production printing system available from Rosetta Technologies. To enhance your Magnetic Ink Character Recognition printing experience, you may want to learn more about this high volume MICR printer from HPRSA and Rosetta Technologies. The DDP 70e has been thoroughly tested for performance and MICR readability. The ability of the DDP70e to run MICR toner can be used for printing payroll checks, insurance reimbursements, and balance-transfer solicitations. Other applications include product and services promotions with personalized marketing including catalogs, coupons, solicitations and other marketing materials. The DDP70e offers extensive paper handling options, including optional finishers providing the features required for cost-effective on-demand printing.
