|OKI to Showcase Innovative New Graphics Arts Devices at Print Show 2017
A newly-launched commercial standard A3 printer featuring full colour plus white toner will be among the highlights at the OKI Systems UK stand at this year’s Print Show (Stand BO7, Telford International Centre, 11th – 13th October 2017).
OKI’s ground-breaking Pro8432WT is an A3 white toner printer that prints solid white onto a wide variety of coloured media and can also be printed over other colours to create vibrant transfers for use on dark backgrounds. By removing all the traditional CMYK restrictions, printed output matches design capabilities for T-shirt and merchandising transfers, window graphics and clear film, including stationery items from invitations to menus. The new white toner device is also ideal for short-run packaging and mock-up design concepts.
While the Pro8432WT will be making its debut at the Print Show, OKI itself is returning to the event for the third year running. “It’s been an extremely successful show for us, generating many leads and introducing us to new customers,” says OKI marketing manager, Andrew Hall. The OKI stand promises to be packed with ideas on how print houses and other creative businesses can differentiate their business, open up new opportunities and on-demand revenue streams.
“As well as the Pro8432WT we will be featuring other models in our Pro Series Graphic Arts printers; the Pro9541 CMYK+ clear and Pro 9542 white under device complete with a brand new envelope feeder being shown for the first time,” says Hall. “These printers provide a level of performance otherwise only achievable with more expensive production equipment, enabling businesses to open up new ideas and diversify while adding their own value and creative touch.”
OKI’s Pro Series devices offer industry firsts such as white, clear and neon toner and unparalleled colour quality. These benefits combined with a low cost per page enable professional printers to cut lead times, make short runs profitable and act with more flexibility. To help make this possible OKI partners with key industry players and its devices plug into existing graphics arts workflows to offer a complete solution.
OKI will also be showcasing its growing portfolio of large format graphic printers – the ColorPainter range. Printing on widths up to 104”, these are perfect for the production of outstanding, highly-durable designs on a vast range of materials including banners, fleet and vehicle graphics as well as wallpaper, pop-up displays, floor and exhibition graphics. Show visitors will be able to see the ColorPainter either on the OKI stand or by visiting OKI reseller RGBuk and Signmaster.
This year OKI is also supporting reseller partners Ashgrove Trading and DTP/Express who will be feature the Pro Series light production printers on their stands. Likewise, Amaya and TheMagicTouch will feature OKI’s transfer print products.
