varioPRINT DP line

The varioPRINT DP line is powerfully designed for best in productivity, quality and sustainability in B/W production printing. Powered by DirectPress technology, a compact, energy efficient and intrinsically more reliable imaging unit. It produces consistent matte offset-like quality prints, without producing ozone and waste toner. Three speed versions are offered next to many options and modules, including a paper input with vacuum feed and many, many finishing options. All to help you cut costs, reduce your environmental footprint and expand your business opportunities.

  • Ultra stable DirectPress technology producing consistent high quality prints
  • Compact HeatXchange technology significantly reduces energy consumption
  • Embedded PRISMAsync controller offers intuitive control and scheduling 8 hours ahead and receiving notifications well ahead in time


Stable, consistent high-quality printing

DirectPress technology replaces multiple process steps involving many variables with a single, digital, no-variable process. That means that imaging isn’t dependent on light, static charge, temperature, humidity and developer or toner mixtures. DirectPress technology delivers highly stable, consistent quality without streaks, striping or banding. And because it uses a low fusing temperature, you can print on a wide range of media including structured or textured stock.

Intuitive workflow for easy job management

Managing print production workflow is easy with the industry-leading PRISMAsync controller. The user interface gives you full control over production scheduling. You can configure the operator panel to manage production printing, scanning and copying and advanced job editing. A customized media catalogue ensures consistent media handling, delivering first-time-right output. And easy integration with PRISMA and other workflow solutions enhances your workflow even further. All this increases operator efficiency, reduces operational and training costs, improves productivity and attracts more print volume.

High system performance and uptime

Thanks to EnergyLogic, the varioPRINT DP line doesn’t stop for mixed jobs using light and heavy media. Print speed adapts to handle different media weights without grinding to a halt. As a result you can count on top system performance and high print quality under all conditions. And when maintenance is needed, an innovative service concept ensures the shortest turnaround time.

Additional Info for Unique Technologies

varioPRINT DP line incorporates unique technologies that deliver true digital printing, energy efficiency and integrated workflow. They redesign excellence in high-speed black & white printing to cut your costs, reduce your carbon footprint and ramp up your business.

Traditional technology requires multiple process steps. DirectPress converts data into a digital image in a single step. This 100% digital process is unaffected by temperature, static or humidity making it highly stable in terms of image consistency and quality. The technology also uses fewer parts so it's very reliable with high system uptime and a compact footprint. And because there are no ozone emissions or polluting substances to dispose of, it makes for a much cleaner working environment.

HeatXchange closes the energy loop by recycling the heat used to fuse toner onto paper. It transfers the fusing heat from printed sheets to new sheets entering the print path. Printed sheets are cooled and to-be-printed sheets are pre-heated in a single process. The result is a reduction in energy consumption of up to 30%.

EnergyLogic ensures uninterrupted production for jobs using both light and heavy media. For heavy media, the system gradually reduces the print speed to keep performance at a maximum without sacrificing print quality. It then resumes full print speed for lighter media without "hiccups", intelligently gearing up and down for media changes. EnergyLogic also allows you to start printing when you want. As soon as sufficient power is available, the system starts printing and gradually accelerates to maximum speed.
