Re: Compatible Vinyl List for DC Series Printers

I've used FDC 4200 for awhile on my DC4sx but am considering the switch to 3M IJ35C. I'd like to know everyone's thoughts on 3M IJ35C vs FDC 4200. Also, what's your favorite clear vinyl? Thanks in advance!

Re: help on using vision print

I have never been able to get rid of the print pass lines. They're every 3.86" and Summa knows this. It's an inherent flaw with the machine. I don't know of anything that can get rid of it.

Re: DC4sx Banding Issues

I've done the linefeed calibration, and the lightness happens in all colors but is most noticeable in the lighter spots such as DC Red. It happens every 3.86" (top of every print pass). The vinyl in the pic is 3M 7725 White supplied by Summa, but it does the same banding thing when using FDC Interme...

Re: DC4sx Banding Issues

I tried uploading pics but get the following message: "The image must be at least 0 pixels wide, 0 pixels high and at most 550 pixels wide and 0 pixels high. The submitted image is 3264 pixels wide and 2448 pixels high" So, I tried resampling with lesser pixels, and it still won't let me upload pics...

Re: Quick question about banding with DC4sx

This is exactly what mine does. Did you ever get anywhere with it? I've already replaced the printhead (major pain) and nothing changed. My DC4sx is only 2 months old. Furthermore, I don't think I should have to be doing all these tests or replacing printheads right off the bat. I feel like I got sc...

DC4sx Banding Issues

I keep having a banding issue with the DC4sx. Every 3.8" (beginning of 2nd print pass), it will leave a lighter shade line about 1/8" all the way across the print. This, combined with the smaller lines from using double dot make the prints unacceptable to most any customer. I've already replaced the...

DC Ribbon Cassette Storage

I have 20 or so cassettes each loaded with a different ribbon color and was wondering how everyone else stored them, i.e. in a plastic bag, cardboard box, uncovered on a shelf, etc.
