OKI Europe has announced the launch of its new Pro9541WT 5-colour Digital Toner Transfer Media Printer, purpose-built to give commercial print businesses the flexibility to expand their print capabilities.
Designed for the screen and textile printing industry, the versatile digital printer cost-effectively delivers colour, opaque white and true black on garments and hard surfaces using heat transfer media. With no setup time or costs, highly customised designs and short print-runs with a minimum volume of just one are now possible, making it suitable for commercial printers, merchandisers and newcomers to the market.
Generating vibrant CMYK+White colour and sharp graphics on garments and textiles including cotton, canvas nylon, polyester, leather and felt, the Pro9541WT’s transfer media technology makes it possible to produce high-quality designs on hard surfaces including ceramics, acrylic, glass, metal, enamel and wood. This makes it suitable for a huge range of applications, from T-shirts and customised garments to mugs, hats, bags, coasters, and wall art.
Shu Watanabe, Vice President Industry Print, OKI Europe Ltd said, “reliable and affordable, in a competitive market for customised garment and merchandise printing, the Pro9541WT offers unbeatable flexibility for professional print businesses of all sizes. The combination of OKI’s pioneering, easy-to-use 5 colour digital LED technology with chemical-free EXOstencil Screen Prep Paper technology not only reduces production time but also makes the process greener, cleaner and extremely low maintenance.
“Specifically designed for flexibility and ease-of-use, the Pro9541WT’s combination of industry-leading digital LED technology, CMYK+White toner printing capability and cutting-edge transfer media printing make it possible for users to personalise almost anything from T-shirts and garments to ceramics, plastics and metal – delivering more choice for customers and opening-up new potential revenue streams for print businesses.”
OKI’s digital LED and white toner technologies deliver sharp 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, creating precise, detailed graphics even on dark surfaces. With a large 13" x 19" A3+ print capability, the Pro9541WT cost-effectively produces extra-large graphics or a full sheet of logos with no daily maintenance requirement, saving time and cost on print jobs.
EXOstencil Screen Prep Paper from heat transfer paper manufacturer Neenah Performance Materials is tested and approved for use with the new Pro9541WT Toner Transfer Media Printer. This offers an eco-friendly two-step alternative to screen printing frames, eliminating chemicals and emulsions from the process along with hours of drying, significantly reducing production time and cost without compromising on performance.
