MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. — September 14, 2016 — OKI Data Americas has announced its participation and gold sponsorship at the 2016 SGIA Expo that opens today and runs through Sept. 16 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas. In booth #2249, OKI Data will demonstrate the broad array of printing capabilities and market opportunities supported by OKI’s ColorPainter wide-format devices and proColor Series short-run digital production printing solutions, including the new E-64s 6-color wide-format printer and C942 five-color (CMYK + white) digital production device. The exhibit will feature an Experience Center showcasing a variety of wide-format and small format signage applications, and conducting live vehicle wrap demonstrations.
Making its North American debut at SGIA is the new ColorPainter E-64s wide-format printer — the latest addition to OKI’s esteemed ColorPainter line. The E-64s is designed for low- to mid-volume sign and graphics print shops seeking premium graphic output from a reliable wide-format printer at an affordable price. The E-64s boasts the most advanced ColorPainter print technologies, delivering the color density and glossiness expected from ColorPainter brand devices and generating vivid output for banners, backlit signage, fleet and vehicle graphics, wall and floor graphics, POP displays, exhibit graphics and more. Features including automatic print adjustment and CP_ Manager software make it easy for graphic professionals to operate.
The E-64s includes industrial Piezo printheads engineered for longer wear time, plus OKI Data’s low-odor, eco-solvent SX inks that offer a wide color gamut and vivid color saturation for some of the richest, glossiest print images in their class – and with low odor for a healthier workplace environment. Co-branded 3M SX ink Series from OKI together with ColorPainter printers have attained the coveted 3M MCS Warranty. In addition, the printers output has been certified GREENGUARD Gold for safety of indoor applications according to UL 2818 - 2013 Standard for Chemical Emissions for Building Materials, Finishes and Furnishings.
The C942 is a five-color, A3/tabloid digital production printer with white toner that enables users to print in full, vibrant color and/or crisp white on any color media – quickly, efficiently, and in a single pass. This new breed device incorporates OKI’s award winning LED printing technology and unprecedented media handling capabilities to deliver unique production and graphic arts performance to the market. The C942 produces high-quality, high-value output in a device that occupies a small footprint, and which is offered at an acquisition cost of up to 80% less than its closest competitor. With its straight paper path, this groundbreaking printer handles an impressive range of media, including heavyweight stock up to 360 gsm, polyester, plus magnets and banners up to 52˝ in length.
