OKI ES8433 label printer


The OKI ES range of colour LED printers, as supplied by Hibiscus PLC, have been specially calibrated to give the best possible performance in Hazardous Goods labelling applications.

Durable and compact, these printers provide an ideal solution for colour labelling to GHS/CLP standards.

Four individual colour toner cartridges provide maximum efficiency on toner usage, whilst low cost Black consumables provide cheap and cost effective mono printing for those applications where colour is unimportant.

The Oki ES Series of LED printers, when combined with the Hibiscus suite of software products and laser sheet materials, gives complete autonomy and flexibility. This method of print allows the user the ability to generate high quality chemical labels, complete with appropriate hazard information and corporate branding, fully compliant to all parts of BS:5609.

This solution is best suited to companies that have a large number of products and ship in varying quantities. The upfront cost here is considerably less, but the consumable costs are more than with a thermal printer, as you are fundamentally printing 4 colours rather than 1 or 2.

All Oki ES Series LED printers are capable of printing up to 1500mm long, allowing you to easily print extended combination labels.

Ideal for pre-printed labels, thermal printers are robust, easily maintained and reliable. This means they are perfectly suited to an industrial environment, requiring little in the way of ongoing maintenance.

Recommended for pre-printed labels, most notably where you have few variations in the number of warning diamonds you require as you would need a separate base stock for each. A thermal printer prints in 1 or, at most, 2 colours, this means that either you have pre-printed backgrounds displaying your corporate branding, or you are happy with a largely monochrome label.

Despite having a higher upfront cost than an Oki ES series printer, it does have a far lower ongoing cost. The consumables and labels required for this type of printer are significantly less expensive than those of an Oki ES Series printer. Thermal printers also allow for a high print speed, economical consumable use and fantastic print quality.

We supply a full range of TEC, Citizen, Datamax and Zebra printers to fit in with the requirements and processes of our customers. To complement this we have a range of ribbons which have all been tested to the appropriate sections of BS:5609 to give compliant variable information.
