OKI Announces its Expansion & Long-Term Growth Strategy in the Professional Printing Arena
Wednesday, November 4, 2015
OKI Data Americas has affirmed its commitment to long-term growth within the specialty printing and imaging technology market, including advancement of its professional series of digital color devices and further development of its newly acquired ColorPainter and Teriostar brands of wide-format printing devices. Together, these product lines represent a portfolio of printing solutions and technologies designed to meet the emerging needs of the marketplace. As the market for high-quality, short-run, on-demand output increases, OKI offers a comprehensive line of new printing solutions to help improve efficiencies, reduce costs, and increase both productivity and profitability.
OKI Data first established its presence within the professional printing arena with the introduction of its proColor series of digital production printers. This series of devices has expanded over the years to include digital envelope printers in four-color (CMYK) or five-color (CMYK + white) configurations; digital web presses with finishing, laminating and digital die cutting options; and digital production printers in four and five+ color configurations (featuring white and clear toner). Different products offer specialized media flexibility including envelopes, continuous-feed roll labels, transfer media for apparel decorating and variable data/variable graphics support.
OKI’s newly-acquired ColorPainter line of wide-format printing devices include a new grand-format printer that delivers unmatched speed and quality on media up to 104 inches wide, plus two 64-inch devices — each with distinct feature sets. These flexible devices offer vivid and high-density color for sharp, clear and consistent output at fast speed, and a range of offerings to meet a variety of needs and uses within digital print environments.
Within the Teriostar line, OKI offers a series of LED MFPs that delivers fast, high-resolution prints for reprographics, engineering, architectural, CAD and mapping applications. These printing solutions are designed to serve professional CAD, AEC and GIS markets.
"OKI Data Corp.'s recent acquisition of the wide-format printer business from Seiko Instruments Inc. represents our company's key investment within the professional printing market," said Masahiko Morioka, president and CEO, OKI Data Americas. "It firmly establishes and strengthens our presence in the commercial printing sector with an expanded portfolio of high-performance solutions. We see this as a major growth area and remain committed to delivering printing innovation in service to the specialty printing and imaging technology market.
"OKI is dedicated to the success and continuing evolution of our professional printing product segment, and the collaborative development of other new and innovative printing solutions for the commercial printing market," Morioka continued. "As a result, our customers have access to an even more impressive breadth of offerings backed by the strength and support of a world-class organization."
