OKI AND GRAPHTEC COLLABORATE ON LABELS
OKI and Graphtec are in a strategic partnership to provide solutions that address the varying applications for creating ‘ready to use’ labels and packaging.
The deal comes as a part of OKI’s continued expansion in the provision of solutions for printing labels in-house, with the increased demand for specialist finishing requirements, to provide a full solution.
OKI says customers want to make the most of the media flexibility presented by its Pro 10xx range of roll-to-roll label printers, or the OKI Pro 9xx range of sheetfed package/label printers, and this means being able to run blank media, which provides the freedom to create labels of constantly changing size, shape and durability.
The Graphtec range of cutting devices enables flexibility for customers to cut, perf, slit and rewind a variety of substrate types.
OKI says being able to perform these functions on a separate device means customers can print the next job at full production speeds whilst finishing others at the same time.
It says for instance, one minute you can print silver paper labels, and at the same time you can be cutting synthetic white labels, adding that a joint print and finish solution from OKI and Graphtec gives flexibility to print a “huge range” of labels in-house and on-demand.
The OKI and Graphtec label print and finish systems will be on show at Labelexpo, and are available through ANZ supplier Smartech.
