OKI Europe Ltd has taken digital colour printing to a new level with the introduction of the C931. This new A3 colour printer delivers outstanding print quality whilst pushing the boundaries of media flexibility, further establishing OKI as a leader in digital LED innovation.

Designed for the graphic arts market the C931 offers best in class, high definition print quality, achieved through OKI’s Multi-Level ProQ technology. This coupled with OKI’s unique single-pass LED technology delivers consistent high quality colour, with no compromise on speed and performance.

"The new C931 establishes OKI as the de facto ‘gold standard’, making it the product of choice for graphic arts applications as it provides unprecedented levels of quality and performance," says Tetsuya Kuri, vice president marketing, OKI Europe Ltd.

Better all-round

The C931 features print speeds of up to 50 pages per minute and consumables capacity of up to 38,000 pages – the highest in its class to support high volume production grade printing. Thanks to OKI’s proprietary single-pass flat paper path and LED technology, the C931 can handle media of up to 360gsm (single sided) or 320gsm (duplex), heavier than any comparable printer. Add to this media sizes from A6 to SRA3, banner lengths of up to 1.3m and transparent media and you have the most versatile printer in its price range.

An optional EFI Fiery® XF server, enables advanced colour management including spot and process colours, optimising the colour depth and print quality needed in the graphic arts industry.

The new C931 offers the following market-leading features:

  • High-speed printing: 50ppm colour/mono
  • Media flexibility: up to 360gsm media weight, with 320gsm duplex capability
  • Media types: including gloss paper, film, transfer paper and waterproof paper
  • Highest-in-class consumables capacity (38,000 pages)
  • Easy to use with 10.9cm colour LCD and numeric keypad

  • Optional EFI Fiery® XF
  • LED-based engine for superior print quality
  • Extended three year warranty on registration of the product online within 30 days of purchase.
"In each of these features and other individual areas of functionality, the C931 is ahead of the competition," says Kuri. "Put them together however and the new C931 marks a dramatic step forward in performance, flexibility and total cost of ownership."

Customer benefits

The C931 is primarily targeted at the specialist graphic arts market but is also well-suited to general office applications with a requirement for high quality colour printing.

The new OKI range provides print shop customers with the ability to produce short-run digital print tasks at a very high quality, combining unique features and low running costs, in a single device.

"The C931 redefines LED digital colour printing" confirms Harry Takahashi, managing director, OKI Europe Ltd. "As a result, OKI’s flexible, class-leading printing technology brings production grade colour printing in-house enabling businesses to print what they need, when they need it."
