high-speed, high-volume print systems
our print systems are from microplex, a global manufacturer of cut sheet
and continuos laser, ion and thermal printers. these printers are
leaders in compatibility, flexibility and reliability and are designed
to print successfully where other printers have failed.
therefore, orion hitek is able to provide financially attractive solutions for the commercial environment and modular configurations to suit a wide range of industrial applications.
in all these printers the same controller is used and features 22 emulations, giving the printers an unusually high level of compatibility. microplex's own language, idol, operates above all commonly used emulations, incl. hp laserjet, printronix, qms, bull and tiff.
printer applications: our print systems are successful both when installed within a network and when directly connected to a host. they are sturdy, reliable and quiet and they are built to thrive in even the harshest industrial environments but are also suitable for traditional data processing. typical applications are:
- labels: a straight paper path and label-friendly engine make these printers
ideal for all kinds of label printing.
- tags: here versatility is key, because tags vary in thickness
and size. (card stock!)
- bar-codes: the printers feature an advanced bar code
system in which users input only bar code parameters to the printer,
instead of scanning in an image. this system keeps data stream traffic
low and generates bar codes faster than other methods (bitmap,
download font systems). solid printers generate bar-codes while printing
at full speed.
- overlay forms: digital overlay forms are an economical,
state-of the art alternative to preprinted forms. instead of loading
the precise number of forms you need for a print job, you store the
forms on the printer itself and print on blank paper. overlay forms
may include text, logos, lines, bars and even commands for selecting
a specific paper tray: overlay forms can either be downloaded when
needed (which allows quick deleting of the form for security reasons),
or they can be stored in the controller which allows for simply
accessing the form through a keyword in the data stream. then you are
able to mix the digital overlay form with the variable data and you
still print at engine speed! and the user has the flexibility
to run different print jobs at the same printer at one time.
- shipping documents: because all our printers feature
the same controller, using several printer functions in one document
is no problem. the shipping process can be simplified, for example,
by combining functions for peel-off labels, bar codes and overlay forms
on one shipping document.
- when it comes to office applications there is a need
for maximum flexibility in terms of media on which to print as well
as emulations to be available. microplex printers can give you the assurance
that they can print nearly on any print media requested, including
plastics, pvc, thick card stock (up to 150 lbs.) and adhesive labels
of all kinds. they can print overlay forms on paper to which personalized
cards are already adhered - and can do so while maintaining top speed
and excellent print quality. this method eliminates the need
for collating and the possibility of mismatched cards and letters.
our philosophy is to combine advanced printer technology with a high level of compatibility to other kinds of systems. our printers offer compatibility over the long term. older microplex systems can be upgraded to the newest level. conversely, when a customer wishes to add a newer printer to his existing system, the new addition can be made compatible with the older system.
planned obsolescence is not part of our philosophy.
