Navigating Digital Transfer Printing with OKI
Digital transfer printing is fast becoming an increasingly popular alternative to direct-to-garment applications and screen-printing options. Screen-printing uses chemicals and is inflexible, expensive as well as time and labor-intensive; direct-to-garment moves at a glacial pace, producing finished products one at a time.
OKI’s (Booth 2249) Digital Transfer technologies have found the sweet spot between performance and expense, expanding market opportunities and producing new revenue streams for today’s savvy business owners. Moving from traditional processes to digital operations, OKI simplifies the process, eliminates the set-up (and associated fees) and produces superior output to better serve the industry’s discerning clientele.
In tandem with a consumer desire to personalize everything, quick, easy-to-operate technology with an efficient return on investment is sought by virtually every organization and market segment. OKI Data Americas, already known for its equipment durability and vibrant color output, is also the leading digital transfer printer manufacturer in its category within North America, delivering brilliant color-on-colored substrates thanks to its revolutionary white toner technology.
OKI is unveiling its latest addition to the proColor product line and the world’s first 13 by 19 inch digital transfer printer: the Pro9541WT. This device integrates single pass, five-color printing technology and a special toner formula that delivers ‘true’ black and vibrant CMYK colors. OKI’s white-trapping feature achieves finer, more precise graphic details on dark backgrounds.
The OKI Pro8432WT provides HD-quality color digital heat transfers for apparel, hard goods and a wide range of promotional materials. The Pro8432WT, with its advanced solid opacity white toner technology and CMY color, achieves any color, hue or shade. OKI’s high-impact output includes transfer to fabrics ranging from 100 percent cotton to 100 percent polyester and everything in between. This printer also saves valuable print shop real estate with its compact design and a straight-through print path. The Pro8432WT’s high-efficiency material handling makes for simple operation and lower overall costs.
OKI’s C831TS digital color transfer printer was designed specifically for t-shirt and apparel decorators. Printing an exceptional range of transfer sheet sizes, the C831TS helps users eliminate trial and error in the media selection process, while boosting productivity and reducing running cost per square inch.
