OKI launches five-colour A LED printer

Nov 12, 2013

The graphic arts industry’s first five-colour, A3 LED printer was launched by OKI at the Viscom exhibition in Paris and will be available in South Africa early in 2014.

The OKI C931 has been designed to meet the needs of the graphics arts and creative industries, and is also well suited to general office applications, removing the need for two printers.

Built to offer essential levels of high quality output, the C931 is robust and reliable.

In addition to C, M, Y, K process colours, the C931 offers an extra spot colour in white or clear gloss. This capability was previously only available on expensive digital or lithographic printing equipment. The introduction of the OKI C931 enables creative businesses and copy shops to produce a greater variety of material on demand, in short runs more cost-effectively than ever before.

The white toner option is ideal for printing on colour paper, transparent film, T-shirt transfers and promotional merchandise; and the clear gloss for producing high quality catalogues, manuals, photobooks and marketing documents.

The C931 prints at speeds of up to 50 pages per minute (ppm) and has a consumables capacity of up to 38 000 pages. It supports paper sizes from A6 to SRA3; banner lengths of 1,3m; and media of up to 360gsm (single-sided) or 320gsm (duplex). An optional EFI Fiery XF server provides enhanced colour management.
