DTM Group has added OKI’s Pro1050 digital LED 5-color label printer to its product portfolio to be distributed through its subsidiary DTM Print (formerly Primera Europe).
Working with OKI Europe, the EMEA head office of the Japanese printer manufacturer DTM Group will make the device available through its distribution channels in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and the CEE region.
OKI’s Pro1050 label printer is based on LED technology, can print in five colors (CMYK + W) and handles medium to large runs of color labels on demand. In addition to the roll-to-roll printing option, the integrated cutter allows the output of label stacks.
Similar to laser printers, the OKI Pro1050 uses a dry toner electrophotographic process to develop the image on a light-sensitive drum which is transferred by electrostatic charge via an image transfer belt and fused by heat to the media. This technology produces labels that are waterproof and UV resistant.
In comparison to traditional laser printers, where the image is created by a rotating laser beam, the OKI Pro1050 uses static LED lines. This results in lower maintenance and longer lifetime cycles, while LED printheads deliver a precise pixel setting for crisp and brilliant labels, says the company.
For printing white only or white with color on transparent or colored labels, users can choose either from standard materials or the wide selection of DTM certified Genuine Label Stock for dry toner: starting with matte and glossy papers extending to transparent, matte and glossy polyester films as well as special coatings such as textured or silver, gold, black and other colored materials.
