OKI has launched its latest two Teriostar wide-format printers, the LP-1040MF and LP-2060MF.
The latest in the Teriostar multifunction range, the two roll-to-roll machines can print A1 sheets up to 7ppm and 9ppm respectively, making them the fastest in their class according to OKI.
The twin-roll LP-1040, which will be released next month, one month prior to the LP-2060, is priced at €16,530 (£14,320) with two rolls, with the four-roll LP-2060 coming in at €27,900.
The two reel-to-reel machines print at a resolution of 600dpi and take substrates up to 60gsm paper and 122gsm film.
OKI wide-format general marketing manager Frank Jänschke said: “These machines are the successors of a long history of Teriostar that we have been producing since 2005.
“The two printers are now completely multifunctional printers. We always have a scanner on top and this is one of the best scanners in the market, bringing 600dpi resolution and a function that is possible to use for archiving for very thin paper.
“We have a big demand from the government market that we need to have their very thin papers and that is the most complicated thing, to print on this thin paper.”
Jänschke added that he believed the paper the machines can print on is the thinnest in the market. Both machines can also be attached to a folder, to speed up the finishing process.
New features for ease-of-use include a clear 220mm touchscreen panel to improve user interface. The interface has a Print Data Converter to fix regulation errors and there are also new security features, with smart card identification to prevent unauthorised use.
The machines also come with enhanced Teriostation2 integrated software as standard, which delivers network access to the copiers and allows users to send jobs with multiple files to the machine from anywhere on the network.
“The Teriostation software is working in a very very complex architecture of networks now. Even the most complicated networks in a big company are able to be implemented,” added Jänschke.
Jänschke said he anticipated the Teriostar machines would sell well in target markets in Russia and Eastern Europe, but that OKI wanted to increase its Teriostar presence in the Western European market.
The launch follows OKI's release of an addition to the ColorPainter wide-format family in October last year, after it acquired wide-format manufacturer Seiko I Infotech in October 2015.
Last Drupa, it announced its next-generation wide-format technology, which Jänschke said was being “strongly worked on and will come soon.”
