10 Great Reasons for Choosing LED Printers

OKI pioneered the use of LED technology in printers for over three decades. LED is at the heart of OKI’s printer technology innovations and it’s a technology we continue to refine and improve.
To celebrate the incredible capabilities of LED printing and the many advantages it offers compared to laser printing, here are 10 reasons all companies should choose LED printers over other technology.

 Superior print quality

OKI’s LED technology produces a higher level of detail and greater colour depth, enabling businesses to produce professional-quality documents in house.

Easy maintenance

OKI LED technology contains no moving parts; this means there’s less components to fail and makes maintenance and repair much easier.

Superior speed

Laser printers use a beam that tracks back and forth across the drum. In an OKI printer LEDs flash the entire line all at once making
the process faster.

Compact size

As the LED print heads don’t move, LED printers can be much smaller making OKI’s printer among the smallest in the market.

Environmentally friendly

LED technology uses less components in production and less energy in operation. OKI also offers duplex printing across the range.


OKI’s LED printers and MFPs can print incredibly small dot sizes for a highly accurate output, particularly on fine text.

Unrivalled Media Flexibility

OKI combines LED technology with a single-pass fat paper path, which offers best-in-class print speed, and unrivalled media handling capability from heavy card to long banners up to 1.32m in length.

Quality duplex printing

Unlike inkjet technology, where the ink soaks into paper. LED technology fuses the toner onto paper, eliminating show-through when duplexing.

No compromise

Quality printing with inkjet technology relies on slower print speeds or using expensive special media. With LED you get great quality printing every time, without compromise.


LED printers have no breakable moving parts, making them more reliable and durable, and the straight-line paper path is less
susceptible to paper jams.
