OKI Europe Unveils the Industry’s First Digital LED Five Colour A3 Printer

OKI Europe unveiled the industry’s first 5 colour, A3 digital LED printer, the ES9541, at Viscom Paris. Targeted at the specialist graphic arts market, the ES9541 offers affordable spot colour in white or clear gloss, at a highly competitive price point, for short-run, digital, print-on-demand performance.

Providing brilliant solutions to old problems

“OKI is extremely excited about the introduction of this pioneering new digital LED print technology which reinforces OKI’s focus on developing innovative technology to benefit businesses.” says Harry Takahashi, managing director, OKI Europe Ltd.

“The new ES9541 is an affordable, high definition printer that enables you to not only print the full range of process colours using CMYK, but also offers an additional fifth, spot colour, in white or clear gloss. Previously these processes could only be achieved through the use of expensive digital or lithographic printing equipment; now it is available to any creative business or reprographics studio, on demand, offering endless opportunities” Takahashi continues.

The ES9541 builds on the revolutionary and highly successful A3 and A4 white toner printers launched by OKI in 2012, introducing versatile and high volume toner-based solutions for the first time into the previously specialist ‘white print’ sector.

The ES9541 features print speeds of up to 50 pages per minute and a consumables capacity of up to 38,000 pages – the highest in its class, to support high volume production grade printing. Thanks to OKI’s proprietary single-pass, flat paper path and digital LED technology, the ES9541 can handle media of up to 360gsm (single sided) or 320gsm (duplex), heavier than any comparable printer. Add to this media sizes from A6 to SRA3, banner lengths of up to 1.3m and transparent media and you have the most versatile printer in its price range.

An optional EFI Fiery® XF server, enables advanced colour management including spot and process colours, optimising the colour depth and print quality needed in the graphic arts industry.
