The C711DW Digital Web Press is the latest addition to an expanding line of digital label printers from OKI Data Americas. Together with the HS711DLF, these devices create full color finished labels on-demand and with ease, incorporating digital die cutting and film lamination to deliver a complete, cost-effective, digital label printing production system. The C711DW utilizes OKI label management software from HYBRID Software as a front-end solution. It prints at up to 25 feet per minute in continuous feed mode, and handles a variety of media including paper, polyester, vinyl and adhesive-backed substrates at widths of 6.5 to 8.5 inches and a maximum outside roll diameter of 14 inches on a three inch core to meet a wide array of label printing needs. The complete, short-run label printing system is offered at a fraction of the cost of other digital presses.
