Oki’s recently launched Pro9541WT five-colour transfer media printer has won two industry awards.
The printer received an Office Oscar from OEN Magazine and the Editor’s Choice Award from Print IT Reseller, for its innovative features and the value it can add to businesses.
OEN awarded the printer in recognition of the new business opportunities it creates as a fast, cost-effective, on-demand, toner transfer technology and a more eco-friendly alternative to screen printing. The OEN Office Oscars are awarded to companies with new products, services or initiatives that are raising the bar in terms of standards, excellence, quality and value.
Print IT Reseller gave the Oki Pro9541WT the coveted Editor’s Choice Award based on the printer’s contribution to innovation in transfer printing.
Launched in September 2019, the versatile Oki Pro9541WT A3+ digital transfer media is the world’s first-ever five-colour, LED device to deliver 329x483mm digital transfer printing. Generating vibrant CMYK+white colour and sharp graphics on textiles and hard surfaces with no daily maintenance requirements, the Pro9541WT offers three different application types from one device – digital toner transfer printing, digital screen printing frames and digital smart screen transfer, giving commercial screen printers the flexibility to expand their print capabilities and generate additional revenue streams by offering new services to customers.
Businesses using Oki’s Pro9541WT can print on-demand with the lowest setup cost and time compared to traditional transfer methods. As a result, organisations can fulfil urgent, highly customised and small requests – even a single item – more profitably, enabling them to meet the growing demand for highly personalised products. The Pro9541WT is equipped with a large 13x19in A3+ print capability and produces extra-large graphics or a full sheet of logos with no daily maintenance requirement. Oki’s digital LED and white toner technologies deliver sharp 1200x1200dpi resolution,
creating precise, detailed graphics even on dark surfaces.
Christophe Van Gelder, general manager EMEA, toner transfer media and textile printing, Oki Europe, said: “We are delighted that the Pro9541WT has been recognised by two leading industry publications. At a time of growing demand for personalised and customised products and other short, on-demand print runs, we are confident that our innovative new technology
will play a significant role in helping print businesses to access important revenue opportunities in the growing personalisation market.”
