OKI expands white toner printer to A3 – Pro8432WT


OKI has released an A3 desktop white toner (C/M/Y/W) colour laser for creative industries.

White toner is the key to producing stunning laser prints allowing areas of white only print over coloured stock and additive printing for better tonal gradation. Apart from paper it can also print on transfer media like Forever Flex Soft, Laser Dark & Multi Trans for fabric and hard item transfer.

OKI A3 whiteThe Pro8432WT’s impressive media compatibility includes the latest low-temperature transfer media available in the market, to decorate virtually any substrate including synthetic fabrics, metal, glass and even wood. Single-step transfer media permits lighter colour garment decoration in a fast and cost-effective manner, that also results in vivid, longer lasting colours.

Antonio Leone, marketing manager for OKI Data ANZ, said, “The ability to print white with an A3 desktop printer enables businesses to unleash their creative potential, as well as generate incremental revenue opportunities previously out of reach. Combined with high-definition OKI-pioneered digital LED technology and wrapped in a compact and space-saving design, OKI is revolutionising printing for creative businesses and solidifying its commitment to the Pro-series group of products.”

OKI was first to release a white printing colour A4 laser. The Pro8432WT is the first A3 compact desktop printer to print white toner as well.

Solid white can be printed onto a wide variety of coloured media and can also be printed over other colours to create vibrant transfers for use on dark backgrounds. A note for designers – you need to use CMYW instead of a CMYK pallet.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
