Irving, Texas – OKI Data Americas – a world-class printing technology leader – today announced that its innovative wide-format, light-production and textile transfer printing solutions will be on display and demonstrated in OKI Booth #2233, October 10-12 in New Orleans at the 2017 SGIA Expo, the largest printing show in North America.
“SGIA is a wonderful opportunity for OKI to deepen relationships in the sign and graphics industry,” said Lou Stricklin, Director of Product Marketing, Industrial Business Unit at OKI. “We look forward to demonstrating a wide range of OKI’s industry-leading printers and color technology. Hands-on experience with this OKI technology is essential for businesses aiming to differentiate themselves while earning great ROI.”
OKI will display its full line of ColorPainter™ wide-format devices in OKI Booth #2233 including the E-64s, launched late last year to provide lower-volume print environments with best-in-class color saturation and outdoor durability. SGIA attendees can also see output from the ColorPainter M-64s, OKI’s flagship wide-format printer serving print shops with industrial-grade hardware and print quality at world-class speeds. The H3-104s will be printing banners, wall coverings and 104”- wide textiles. All OKI wide-format devices produce GREENGUARD Gold Certified output, having passed a rigorous certification process meeting health-based criteria for low chemical and particle emissions for use in sensitive environments like educational and medical facilities.
Delivering groundbreaking innovation in print-for-pay operations as well as the graphic arts, textile and stationery markets, OKI’s proColor™ Series features the C942dn CMYK + White printer and its ability to print impactful graphics on dark stocks by laying high-density white toner beneath color in a single pass. Additionally, OKI is the only low- to mid- range production system offering an EFI Fiery® C9 RIP for both the 942 and 931 product lines, offering industry-leading color management and variable data capabilities.
