Probably the best thermal printer on planet Earth

 

In the world of thermal transfer printing technology, Summa DC4 reigns supreme. In fact, no other thermal transfer printer even comes close.

At 137 cm, it’s the world’s widest thermal transfer printer and over four times the width of its nearest competitor. An eight station ribbon-changer eliminates manual ribbon changes, allowing unattended printing of up to 58 m². Variable width vinyl handling makes it the most versatile printer in its class. Choose from a host of special print-modes, like High Resolution for great-looking photos, or Double Density for back-lit images that are ultra-rich. Plus, built-in cutting means you can produce custom labels and contour cut graphics up to 127.5 cm wide on 45 meter media.

Summa DC4 is a complete wide format print-and-cut system. It includes the super-fast ColorControl RIP + Cut software, power take-up rollers, media baskets, 8 universal ribbon cassettes, a full set of CMYK ribbons, and a 137 cm by 45 meter roll of high-performance 3M vinyl. Just plug the DC4 into a computer and get ready for some serious outdoor graphics production.
