Summa launches DC5 thermal transfer resin printer/cutter

Summa Dc5

Summa has launched its DC5 thermal transfer resin printer/cutter which enables customers to to output prints with no need to dry or laminate. 
The new DC5 machine has a variety of performance-enhancing features including more media widths, an Ethernet port and a new user interface.  It is availble in 50cm, 61cm, 75cm, 100cm, 122cm and 137cm widths.

Resin ribbon printing can last outdoor for up to 5 years without lamination.  One single machine will deliver durable full colour and accurate contour cut graphics with the ability to cut completely through the material.  The automatic resin ribbon changer can combine process colours, a wide range of spot colours and mirroring metallic foil printing for high-profit effect graphics that only thermal transfer printing will provide.   Moreover, thermal transfer printing is currently the most environmental friendly method on the market.  There is no chemical waste, no VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) exhaust or noxious solvent fumes that could entail any health risk.

A modern styled user interface was also added to the DC series in order to apply to the highest standards of industrial design and meet operator needs for ergonomics and safety. The touchscreen facilitates quick and easy navigation through the menus and displays a broader range of information on the screen.

The Summa DC5 also has a more compact and affordable alternative, the DC5sx.  Yet, this smaller version remains top-of-the-line in terms of equipment, durability, print quality and production speed.   Tracking and cutting features are also identical to the Summa DC5, assuring the same spot-on accuracy Summa owners have come to expect. 

Summa’s product engineer Mr Randi Kerkaert comments, “With the introduction of the DC5 series to our printing technology portfolio, more than ever our partners will have the opportunity to provide reliable printing solutions to customers, meeting the ever-changing and demanding workplace requirements within the thermal transfer printing market.”
