OKI to Preview New Color Label Printer, C711DW, at Labelexpo
OKI Data Americas reports that it’ll be participating in the Labelexpo Americas 2014 trade show and conference taking place September 9-11 in Rosemont, Illinois, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. At the show, OKI Data will introduce its new C711DW, a digital-color label printer with finishing system, that OKI says is ideal for short-run commercial-printing applications. OKI Data will also preview a new color-label printer slated for introduction in 2015, and demonstrate select digital color printers designed for use within the label and package-printing industry.
OKI will demonstrate the following printing systems at booth 1245:
- The C711DW Digital Web Press is OKI’s latest addition to its expanding line of digital label printers. Together with OKI’s HS711DLF, the firm says these systems can be used to print and create full-color finished labels on-demand, incorporating digital die cutting and film lamination. The C711DW uses OKI’s label-management software from partner Hybrid Software as a front-end solution. It prints at up to 25 feet per minute in continuous-feed mode, and handles a variety of media including paper, polyester, vinyl, and adhesive-backed substrates at widths of 6.5 to 8.5 inches and a maximum outside roll diameter of 14 inches on a three-inch core to meet a wide range of label-printing needs. OKI says the system provides a complete, short-run label printing system at a fraction of the cost of other digital presses.
- The OKI pro511DW Digital Web Press provides enhanced features and functionality including a Proactive server, Harlequin raster image processor (RIP), and Hybrid front-end software, plus a heavy-duty rewinder with a pre-assembled slitter. OKI says it delivers fast, customized continuous web printing with exceptional color quality, plus easy operation in both continuous and cut-sheet modes, and produces OKI HD (high definition) color printing even on ordinary paper. The pro511DW also supports variable data printing (VDP).
- The OKI pro900DP Digital Envelope Press features OKI’s HD color printing and an embedded an EFI Fiery System 8e Controller with SmartRIP technology for automated color workflows and job management, plus color consistency and accuracy.
- The Kompac EZ Koat is a post-production accessory for the OKI pro511DW, providing UV coating for rub-, fade-, water- and scratch-resistant materials. OKI days the Kompac EZ Koat offers a small footprint, and UV and Aqueous coater capable of coating sheets 14.5 inches in width and virtually any length.
“OKI Data looks forward to Labelexpo and the introduction of the revolutionary C711DW to this audience,” said Rich Egert, general manager of the strategic technology provider business group for OKI Data Americas. “With this extension of our web-printing platform, OKI Data continues to demonstrate market leadership in the introduction of game-changing commercial printing solutions to the label and package printing industry.”
Labelexpo Americas is the world’s largest event for the label-printing, product decoration, web printing, and converting industry.
