Summa DC4 For Sale- Incredible Deal!

Post by miriamvl » Fri Nov 16, 2012 2:00 pm

I'm sure most of you are know what the DC4 is- much more than I do. My husband acquired this huge machine through a business adventure that never took off. All I have done with it for the past 2 years is cut vinyl. It has sat in my library and hasn't been used very much. The few times I used the resin- I am reminded how awesome this machine is and how I really don't take advantage of its abilities.

This printer sells new for just under $20,000. We are selling it for 8900. It is in perfect condition, never had any problems with it. We would like to down grade and purchase just a vinyl cutter.

Some benefits:
1. No INK- no mess.
2. You can go months without using it and it starts right up, ready to go.
3. It prints and cuts.
4. It cuts dead-on...never had problems.
5. Can print white ink/resin on clear vinyl.

We will give you all the resin we have (really low on cyan, but have many pretty full cartridges).

We have the original crates. You would need to ship it. (We are in UTAH)
Let me know if you have any questions. I don't fully understand the machine- but I will do my best.

Make us a deal! I am ready to have my library back :)

Quite simply,
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 54 inches (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 625 square feet (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 50.2 inches (127.5 cm) wide on 50 yard (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, 8 universal ribbon cassettes, the remainder of my CMYK + white and ScratchGuard ribbons, and the rest of my 24inch 3m clear and 54" MacTac Bubble free vinyl. Just plug the DC4 into a computer and get ready for some serious outdoor graphics production.
