How It Works
The OKI Pro takes an 8 inch diameter roll of pre-cut labels or a plain slit roll of media for printing and cutting later.
Inside the OKI Pro there are adjustable media sensors to ensure accurate register of the print onto the labels using the label gaps, holes, notches or reverse side printed black marks to re-register.
For the OKI Pro 1040 there is a one piece combined replaceable toner hopper drum station for each colour C, Y, M, K. For the OKI Pro 1050 there is an extra + W white station so 4 colour process + White.
When printing the individual colours are first imaged electrostatically onto each drum, then combined to the image on the transfer belt.
Unlike other laser type printers and older designs the uniqueness of the OKI Pro triangular belt path separates the imaging drums a good distance from the straight through media stock path preventing any adhesive or media contact with the drums.
The imaged colour toner transfers from the belt to the media just before being heat fused to the media surface by passing through the heated fuser rollers.
A strong rotary cutter separates the media at the end of a run or can be set to cut off each label or tag to make separate tag or tickets items.
Various winder, stripper and cutting options are available for making neat printed rolls and for digital cutting and finishing any shape adding flexibility.
