White productivity: the C942 is the fastest color-on-color production printer in its class1
OKI Data Americas announces its participation in the upcoming GRAPH EXPO 15 tradeshow and conference taking place September 13-16, 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. There in booth 4031, OKI Data will demonstrate its expanding line of professional digital printing solutions developed to serve a variety of short-run commercial needs, including cut sheet and continuous feed applications, white and clear printing capabilities, a wide range of media handling possibilities, plus lamination and digital die cutting finishing options.
OKI Data will introduce the C942 at this year’s show. The new C942 is the company’s latest five-color production A3/tabloid device. This new platform and its productivity will allow users to expand beyond basic color printing on plain white media to printing vibrant color on colored stocks in a single pass. Through the integration of OKI’s Single Pass Color™ technology, the C942 is faster than its predecessor at delivering robust high-definition color output on colored stock.
The C942 can handle an impressive range of media types, including polyester, heavyweight stock up to 360 gsm, plus magnets and banners. The C942 offers great revenue generating opportunities for those in the print-for-pay space, and also has strong value proposition for businesses looking to augment their in-house production capabilities. This new production platform is supported by both EFI™ and Global Graphics™ raster image processors (RIPs).
