Primera SE Autoprinter: Anybody had any problems with the printer only version of this machine? Bit dubious of its mechanical falability?

Disc Publisher SE Autoprinter

Hi, to be frank the SE autoprinter is very much an entry level unit, with only 20 discs capacity it is engineered for smaller production runs. So its ideal for 10’s and 20’s of discs, but if you plant to do batches of 50 or 100 you need to consider a laerger capacity unit. Any questions give us a call on 0208 293 0777.

your artwork into the printable area of the disc, whether its hub-printable
or not.

The Rimage Everest 600 AutoPrinter comes equipped with a 400-bin carousel. This carousel has a 300 disc input capacity with the remaining bin used for output. When the first input bin is empty it becomes the second output bin, and so on. In this manner, the AutoPrinter can print up to 300 discs without a single operator intervention. AutoPrinters come with Rimage’s state of the art Producer series robotics. These robotics are driven by a closed loop servo motor system and a reinforced, toothed belt. The picker rides on roller bearings and slide rails and takes only 2 seconds per movement. The picker is steel and will pick from a plane of 85·- 95·. The AutoPrinter comes with CD Designer, software to create the artwork for your discs and to drive the printer. CD Designer has a complete set of file import capabilities, text creation capabilities, object creation tools, bar code generation and more. An optical sensor in the Rimage transporter detects a small index mark that is silk-screened in the index ring along with your silk-screened design. The transporter then rotates the disc to the correct orientation so your customized printing will always be aligned with your original silk-screened artwork. For optimum throughput, ease of use, and support that is tops in the industry – Rimage Everest 600 AutoPrinter is the clear choice.
