Re: No more Summa printers?

Thank you Phil, that's great to hear.

Are you manufacturing it in the US now or is it still being produced in Belgium?

It does feel that since the Summa take over, that the company is slowly disappearing, which is a really shame.

No more Summa printers?

No more information on printers on Summa web site. Have they discontinued the DC?

Alignment issue

Hi All Having an issue with my DC4 SX with the alignment of the vinyl. Every print I have to calibrate the line feed, if not then a line appears within the next 2nd-3rd print pass. Getting fed up with wasting so much material. I don't change the media very often. Does anyone else have to calibrate e...

Re: Lines In Black Fill

I'm thinking its to do with tension in the ribbon. All other colors print fire, only the black. summa said to grease the rolls, if that does not work then replace the ribbon. The ribbon is nearly new, I can't keep replacing ribbon that is near full. I have looked at the system Config in printer cont...

Re: Lines In Black Fill

Hi ThinkRight

Did you solve the winkling issue with the black, I'm getting the same problem. I have changed the density settings, winkling stops at 1100 but the black is patchy.

Re: Double print the same color

Brilliant, thanks Muts. I did try the corel over fill method with 2 identical shapes over the top of one another, but the DC still only printed once.

I'll the color control method.

Thanks
