OKI launches digital LED white toner printers for smarter in-house printing in Europe

New ground-breaking printing technology removes the last barrier to creativity and design
how to print solid white quickly and cost effectively

Applications

TOKYO, November 6, 2012 -- OKI Data Corporation, an OKI Group company specializing in printer business, today announced an introduction of digital LED A4 and A3 white toner printers to its range of portfolio for the European market.

The new C711WT and C920WT models have already highlighted a number of strong vertical market opportunities, from T-shirt transfers and film printing to innovative in-store point of sale applications.

The new white toner models are tried and tested devices that are well-regarded by OKI's target small and medium business (SMB) customer base for their high quality output, robustness and affordability, making them suitable for graphic-based industries. OKI is the first company to introduce a toner-based solution to the ‘white printer’ sector and will significantly expand what has so far been a highly specialist, complex, costly and low-volume market.

"In the past, products have been based on inkjet, dye sublimation or transfer film-ready technologies," says Paul Ingram, product marketing manager at OKI Europe Limited, the European headquarters for printer business. "These have niche applications in areas such as garment decoration or printing proofs for packaging applications which are typically expensive both to purchase and maintain and the production time is lengthy."

"The new white toner-based products by contrast are versatile, easy to use and, as there is no drying time required, enable much faster and more cost-effective printing. At the same time, the robust solid print output is just as good as foil blocking, making it a credible in-house solution for a wide range of white print applications."

As variants of existing tried and tested OKI printers, the new white toner products offer a number of major advantages over other white printing devices, making them affordable for the first time to large and small businesses or organizations looking to expand their in-house print capability.

The C711WT and C920WT offer faster printing and are much easier to use, as users can load and print many sheets. Printed output offers consistent high quality and robust performance, as it is scratch resistant compared to inkjet-based competitors.

They are more versatile in handling a broad range of media, including photo printing, layout proofs, film printing, packaging, POS and T-shirt transfers. And all this is delivered with low running costs and overall cost of printing, making them accessible to a much broader user market.
