Euro Trophex ‘Best in New Technology’ award

Egham, March 19, 2013 -- OKI Europe Limited and TheMagicTouch enjoyed major success at the latest Euro Trophex Show held in Amsterdam, winning two trophies for the ground-breaking C711WT from, the first color LED printer with white toner added to the established CMY color process.

TheMagicTouch is a global pioneer in digital image transfer processing and the exciting new OKI technology attracted huge numbers of visitors to TheMagicTouch's stand. They were able to see how this unique innovation in toner technology offers unrivalled opacity, delivering a very high ‘white' factor for applications ranging from folders, mugs and binders to leather and polyurethane products, as well as garments and textiles.

Jürgen Hagedorn, CEO at TheMagicTouch, comments: "For garment applications, OKI's new dry toner technology represents a major step forward in convenience. However, for non-fabric applications such as trophy and award products it is the beginning of a totally new era. The amazing C711WT printer will change image transfer applications forever. We believe it is the completion of the circle."

Harry Takahashi, Managing Director, OKI Europe, adds: "With our new LED printer, we are set to substantially expand what until now has been a highly specialist, niche ‘white printer’ market."

"Over many years, OKI has built much of its success on technology innovation. As our partnership with TheMagicTouch demonstrates, with our new white toner products we have once again created a major opportunity for end-customers to improve competitiveness, by making the most of their ability to print a broader range of high quality materials in-house."
