OKI to Debut its pro920WT Printer at SGIA

OKI_LogoOKI Data Americas announces that the new OKI pro920WT digital color printer will debut at the upcoming 2011 SGIA Expo taking place October 19-21, 2011 in New Orleans, LA. The pro920WT is a tabloid/A3 digital color printer with high-quality, full-color capabilities plus white toner for graphics, signage, and textile transfers. The pro920WT is a cost-effective alternative to screen printing, and it is the lowest-cost white toner product available in the marketplace today. The OKI pro920WT will be demonstrated within OKI’s booth (#411) and available for sale within the Graphics One booth (#3201) for $7495. 

The OKI pro920WT operates at 31 ppm color/36 ppm mono, and employs High Definition (HD) Color printing technology with up to 1200 x 600 dpi resolution to deliver clear, sharp text and graphics whether on ordinary paper, transfer, or transparent media. The pro920WT supplements the already impressive OKI’s proColor™ Series – a line of high-impact digital color printers that serves the graphic arts, production, specialty printing, and imaging technologies industries. The OKI proColor™ Series delivers professional, production-quality color output and color accuracy powered by embedded EFI® Fiery and PANTONE® support on select models.

“OKI is excited to offer SGIA Expo attendees the first look at the pro920WT and demonstrate its unique color and transfer printing capabilities,” said Rich Egert, general manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group for OKI Data Americas. “The OKI pro920WT is the first and only printer that includes white toner to enter the market at this price-point. There is no other white toner-based product in the world that delivers something as unique and as innovative as does the pro920WT.”

Graphics One has been selected as an authorized reseller of the OKI pro920WT, and will serve as national distribution partner for the product throughout the US – supplementing the company’s line of product offerings within the direct-to-garment and dye sublimation markets.

According to Dan Barefoot, president of Graphics One, “The OKI pro920WT is the optimal solution for those requiring industrial high-speed transfer capabilities. With lower-cost textile transfer media, including light and dark substrates, combined with lower costs per copy, this product is perfect for our distribution channel.”

“OKI is confident that the pro920WT will be well-received in the market, just as the other printers in the OKI proColor™ Series have been. The proColor Series was developed to meet the unique needs of the graphic arts and specialty printing industries,” said Egert.
