High-volume versatility in forms and correspondence.

Whether you need regular output of continuous multi-part forms, fine business correspondence—or combinations of both—24-pin OKI ML490 printers are the single solution.

They handle the printing needs of the most demanding environments—including point-of-sale, automation and utility applications such as wholesale or retail sales counters, financial departments, and manufacturing or ware-house sites. Yet they also produce letter-quality type and high-resolution graphics for the office and executive suite.

Unequaled performance technology.

The ML490 sport features that give them a strong edge over their predecessors as well as the competition:

An internal cooling fan provides continuous airflow for the printhead— maximizing throughput productivity for long, unattended print jobs

Additional feed rollers provide precise forms handling and printed-character placement accuracy

3-piece top cover provides easy access and unsurpassed break resistance

Fast, with finesse.

ML490 printers run the gamut of paper types and envelopes at lightning speed—reaching 475 cps in Utility/Draft mode and 105 cps in Letter-quality. Their rugged printhead (200 million-character average life expectancy) is made up of powerful samarium magnets and stored-energy pins that deliver precise, sharp characters all the way through to the last page of a 5-part form. The patented OKI closed-loop feedback system assures character placement accuracy. And a zero-tear feature accurately positions continuous forms for a clean tear at the perforation to eliminate wasted stock.

Built to last, inside and out.

The performance-optimized power supply of the OKI MICROLINE 490 has been enlarged to easily handle harsh printing conditions. Its energy management capabilities match power expenditures to print-job size, maximizing the life of the 24-pin printhead and other components. There are just a few of the reasons why OKI MICROLINE Impact printers are the most widely used in North America. A long-lasting rack-and-pinion drive system ensures print quality longer than belt or cable systems. And the ergonomically-designed, impact-resistant chassis protects the ML490/491 from damage, even in the toughest working environments.
