Print LED technology
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.
- Easy maintenance
OKI LED technology contains no moving parts; this means there are fewer components to fail and makes maintenance and repair much easier.
- Superior print quality
OKI’s LED technology allows for varying levels of intensity for every printed dot. This produces a higher level of detail and greater colour depth, enabling businesses to produce professional-quality prints in house.
- Superior speed
While laser printers print using a beam that tracks back and forth across the drum, in LED printers a number of LEDs flash the entire line all at once. This means LED printers can print faster, improving productivity.
- Compact size
As the LED print heads don’t move, LED printers can be much smaller than other devices. OKI’s products are among the smallest in the market and can fit into any office or retail environment.
OKI’s LED printers and MFPs can print incredibly small dot sizes for a highly accurate output (LED dot-size precision), particularly on fine text. You can test it yourself by printing out the entirety of Daniel Defoe’s novel Robinson Crusoe on a single page. View your printout with a magnifying glass to see how clear the text is.
- Environmentally friendly
LED technology uses less material resources in production and less energy in operation, and OKI also offers duplex printing across the range.
- Unrivalled Media Flexibility
OKI combines LED technology with a single-pass flat paper path, which offers best-in-class print speed, and unrivalled media handling capability from A6 up to 1.32m in length and up to 360gsm in weight to support all your printing needs from business cards to banners.
- Quality duplex printing
With LED technology it’s easy to print, copy or scan in duplex without diminishing print quality. Unlike inkjet technology, where the ink soaks into paper, LED technology fuses the toner onto paper. This eliminates show-through when duplexing and you don’t have to wait for paper to dry before printing on the other side.
- No compromise
For quality printing using inkjet technology, you have to either slow the speed right down or buy expensive special media. With LED there is no such compromise; prints are always good quality, always high speed, and there’s no need for special media.
As mentioned, there are no moving parts to break in LED printers, making them more reliable and durable. Plus, OKI’s digital LED printers use a straight-line paper path (Single Pass Colour) that’s less susceptible to jams when feeding heavy stock, such as envelopes or labels.
