    What thickness stock will this OKI CX3641 run in comparison to the Illumina though?

    The heavy stock option is the only thing which sets the Illumina apart for me.

    The OKI specifies:
    Multi-purpose tray – 17 lb. bond–170 lb. index (64–307 gsm)

    The Xante 650 GS now specifies:
    Heavy card stocks up to 32 pt (650 gsm)

    The Xante GT specifies
    Card stock to 26 pt


    One thing that might be interesting about the OKI is if there were a click program to make the cost per print lower and non-varying. The xante can be very expensive per print if coverage is anything but very light.

    Hi.
    The OKI specifies:
    Multi-purpose tray – 17 lb. bond–170 lb. index (64–307 gsm) <<< This is correct and I should not vouch that it can go higher, but research shows that users do push it for heavier stock. I believe Xante just allows fuser to go hotter as I was not able to determine any physical differences between fusers out of both... Xante has a switch on the side for heavier paper - I have bought 1 xante machine just to play with it / satisfy my curiosity - if I will be able determine what that switch does and replicate it, I'd be able to turn any OKI in to Xante, well "Xante wanna be" :)

    Can the OKI be cheaper to operate per print than the Xante?

    Hi, my apologies for delay, Mr. XFactor. Well, generally yes - it should be a somewhat less expensive to operate OKI VS Xante due to company politics...
    Xante uses same drums (except for the pins on the back to make these drums unfit to other similar printers), same toners (except chips), same transfer belt, etc. but had juiced-up the fuser to cook thicker media and just because of that and few minor details it is being presented as more robust machine. That being said - same components sold at higher price than OKI. I guess if person need not need to laser print on ceramic tile, brick, etc he/she might as well stick with original maker of this printer/engine - OKI.

    I just acquired two C9650 with less than 5000 color pages on them. I am wondering what is the average cost per clickon a full color page.

    Hey Jonathan. Congratulation on your acquisition. They're good machines and if looked after, should serve you well.
    There is no precise answer to your question as cost of printing is coverage dependent, say printing cost of letterheads / envelopes VS postcards will be significant due to coverage difference and toner being you highest consuming supply and therefore expense. I will try to give you some idea.
    Lets start with supplies in your machine(s)
    you have:
    Fuser, life expectancy 100,000 pages (all supplies based on printing LTR size sheets, will click double on 11x17) Realistically after 80,000 it will begin to deteriorate so lets say about 80,000 pages
    Image Transfer Belt, also life expectancy 100,000 pages, same story as Fuser, about 80,000 realistically
    CMYK Drums, life expectancy 30,000 but realistically 25,000 or so thousand before print quality will begin to go down.
    CMYK Toners, life expectancy 16,000 pages with 5% coverage, now, if you print envelopes or letterheads, mostly text, you may get just that but in printing business that is rare, if you run postcards or any promotional materials, you will be lucky to get 7-8K out of toner.
    Lets ballpark cost of a printing 75,000 pages - full healthy life of Fuser and Belt.
    you will need:
    1 fuser $200
    1 belt $200
    3 sets of Drums , CMY are $175 ea, K is $145 so $670/set, $2010 for 3
    10 sets of toners, CMY are 175 ea, K is $110, so 635/set, $6350 for 10
    Total $8760, divide by 75,000 sheets, about 11 cents per page.
    Again, this is not an exact science, just giving you an idea. I can probably get those toners to be a little less expensive and still be original OKI toner but that is generally cost per page.

    Thanks for that reply. Where are you based out of. If you offer consumables, I'd like to be your customer.

    I am in Holmdel NJ. Not a big company, even though I am Certified Elite Level OKIdata Service Tech, I deal with these printers and other types of equipment rather as hobby then a full time job. I mean I do ship things out within reasonable time, usually next day, if you're not that far in Maryland, could possibly stop by for a service call, should you need one. but lets cross that bridge when we get there.
