OKI Printing Solutions’ Builds on 20-year LED Heritage with Exciting New Technology Initiative

-MC300 Series & MC561 feature OKI’s latest third-generation technology-

Slough, UK: Building on its unique 20-year heritage in innovative LED (light-emitting diode) printer technology, [url=http://www.oki.co.uk/]OKI Printing Solutions[/url] has achieved a step-change improvement in LED performance with the development of an advanced new LED Thyristor Array.

The new array has allowed OKI Printing Solutions to make smaller LED print heads, which in turn reduces the chassis size compared to an equivalent laser design. The result is one of the lowest height, doubled-sided A4 colour page printers in the world, especially important in the small office environment where space is at a premium.

“This new array,” says Graham Lowes, marketing director, OKI Printing Solutions, “is the result of two decades of experience and expertise and allows us to comprehensively refresh our portfolio with a range of ultra-compact desktop/small workgroup printers and MFPs that consume less power and leave competitive products trailing in their wake. The C300 and C500 Series colour printers launched earlier this year provide the platform on which the new MC561 is built.”

The MC561 is an A4 colour desktop multifunction product that also has a standard 50-sheet Reversing Automatic Document Feeder (RADF) which can quickly and simply manage copying, scanning and faxing of double-sided documents.

Enhanced in-house printing
The use of LED technology gives pinpoint digital control of dots that are about half the size of a laser, for crisp well-defined text and striking image quality. Each product built using this technology has a completely flat paper path which allows customers to print on a wide variety of paper sizes from A6 upwards, including banners up to 1.2metres in length, and on a wide range of media weights from light to heavy card stock. In turn, this enables customers to print on everything from letters and reports to business cards, CD labels, posters, flyers and banners. It also allows those same customers to be more creative and at the same time save money by producing marketing materials and other customer-facing documents in-house.
