OKI unveils two new wide-format printers
OKI Europe has launched two new wide format Teriostar multifunction printers which are said to be “faster, easier and better”.
The latest in the Teriostar multifunction range, the two roll-to-roll machines can print A1 sheets up to 7ppm and 9ppm respectively, making them the fastest in their class according to OKI.
The twin-roll LP-1040 will be released next month, whilst the LP-2060 will be available in May. The two reel-to-reel machines print at a resolution of 600dpi and take substrates up to 60gsm paper and 122gsm film.
New features for ease-of-use include a clear 220mm touchscreen panel to improve user interface. The interface has a Print Data Converter to fix regulation errors and there are also new security features, with smart card identification to prevent unauthorised use.
These new models also enable the complete deletion of data on the hard disk drive (HDD) if the printer is sold or, if leased, or returned to owner.
The machines also come with enhanced Teriostation2 integrated software as standard, which delivers network access to the copiers and allows users to send jobs with multiple files to the machine from anywhere on the network, using most common file formats TIFF, PDF and more.
OKI wide-format general marketing manager Frank Jänschke said: “With the new LP-1040MF and the LP-2060MF, we’ve retained the best of the legacy Teriostar features such as the unique photoconductor drum which is actually a cartridge that can be replaced by the user."
"As this is the part mainly involved when there are print defects, this can save significant time and expense for example waiting for an engineer and a replacement. To this we have added a host of new features, updating these models and creating fast, efficient and intuitive multifunction devices."
Jänschke added that he believed the paper the machines can print on is the thinnest in the market. Both machines can also be attached to a folder, to speed up the finishing process.
The launch follows OKI's release of an addition to the ColorPainter wide-format family in October last year, after it acquired wide-format manufacturer Seiko I Infotech in October 2015.
