Making a Printer Choice Welcome to the 2012-2013 Printer Sourcebook, from the editors of The Big Picture magazine. A print shop’s livelihood relies heavily on its roster of in-house machines. With more than 200 wide-format printers on the market, however, making a purchase decision for a new printer is no easy task. Yes, buyers often appreciate a variety of options, but too many choices can lead to chaos and increase the risk of making a buying mistake. It’s not like a trip to the grocery store, after all – you don’t have the luxury of rolling your cart down an aisle that features all the printer options in one place, allowing you to conveniently compare size, prices, and quality of machines. Yes, you can wait until the next big tradeshow or take the time to visit various manufacturers’ showrooms, but it’s important that you’re first aware of all the options available to you. The Big Picture is here to help. To save you the hassle of gathering all the details on the printers that are out there, we’ve assembled comprehensive specs on rollfed, flatbed, and hybrid printers across the marketplace, as well as RIPs, and provide them here. Our 2012-2013 Printer Sourcebook comprises three separate sections:

• Rollfed printers: This section, “Decision Time – Rollfed Printers,” charts nearly 150 printers from 22 manufacturers around the marketplace. • Flatbeds and hybrid printers: Titled “Flatbeds Forever,” the second section includes specs on more than 90 flatbed and hybrid printers, for those shops that need more production-oriented or special-use machines. • RIPs: Finally, in “Destination RIPS,” we supply data on nearly 50 third-party sources for RIPs. In the two printer charts, we provide an array of specifications for each machine. The specs – ranging from printhead technology, ink type, and speed to RIP technology, price, year introduced, and much more – will allow you to establish a starting point in your search for the printer that best fits your shop’s needs. Note: This information is excerpted from the June, July, and August 2012 issues of The Big Picture and may not reflect machines or RIPs that were introduced and/or modified since those publication dates.

Decision Time:

Rollfed Printers Detailed specifications on 148 wide-format machines. In life, we face several milestone decisions that lead to investments that can have a significant effect on our financial futures: Which college to attend? Which career path to choose? Which home to buy? And for print providers: Which wide-format printers to purchase? Investing in an exemplary rollfed machine can mean the difference between producing incredible graphics on time to outputting mediocre work and perhaps missing a deadline. In an ideal world, when making a printer-buying decision you’d be able to test drive every rollfed on the market, but let’s face it, ample research coupled with knowledge of your customers’ needs (current and future) as well as a bit of gut instinct oftentimes has to suffice. With the tremendous number of wide-format printers available, you need a starting point to identify the printers most suited to your workflow and production needs. Enter The Big Picture’s annual rollfed printer charts. On the pages that follow are specifications and data for nearly 150 rollfed printer models. With the information here, you’ll be able to quickly pinpoint some machines of interest and then begin to move onto the next stage of your selection process. Note: Keep in mind that this month’s charts comprise only rollfed printers; we’ll feature flatbed and hybrid printers in our August issue.

Trends and specs Twenty-two companies responded to our requests for information on their rollfed printers this year. Some trends to keep in mind when looking over the specs: New introductions: Of the 148 printers listed here, 50 were introduced in 2011 or 2012. Think of it this way: More than a third of all rollfed printers seen here are new introductions into the market, showing that manufacturers continue to listen and respond to print providers’ requests for additional features, improvements, and other changes. UV holding steady: Nearly 30 rollfed printers indicated

THE BIG PICTURE Printer sourcebook 2012-2013

here utilize UV-curing technologies, which is slightly higher than last year but more than double the number indicated in our 2008 rollfed report. A solvent slice of the printer pie: Since 2008, the number of true solvent rollfeds featured in our charts has decreased by 52%. But, in the last three years, the number of solvent machines has remained relatively steady. As for mild solvents (aka eco- or low-solvent, etc.), this segment has continued to grow each year with nearly a 25% upswing since 2008. This year, nearly 30% of all machines fall into the solvent/mildsolvent category. The color of money: Close to half (47%) of all rollfed printers you see here are offering something beyond standard CMYK or CMYKcm inksets. And about 15% of the printers here are making white ink available, which can lead to more profits for print providers. Wider choices: More than a quarter of all the rollfeds are now available in widths of 100 inches or more. Why print small and seam, the argument is, when you can simply go big from the get-go? As you look over this year’s charts, here are the specs you’ll see noted: • Company and website: We’ve listed the manufacturing company rather than the distributor. If a company has an exclusive US distributor, we’ve listed that information in the “Notes” area. In the case of companies listing printers from two different divisions or two different nameplates, we’ve typically combined these under the single company name. • Printer model: We’ve generally combined models if the only difference between them is maximum media width or number of colors offered (a few exceptions were made for space purposes). • Maximum media width (in inches): Note that this is media width, not image width – typically, image width will be 1 to 2 inches less than media width. Minimum here is 24 inches.


• Maximum media thickness: Since more and more rolland sheetfed printers can accommodate thicker media (or have a flatbed option/module), we have added this spec for your convenience. It’s listed in millimeters or inches. • Media: What kind of media will the printer handle – roll, sheet, rigid? For this month’s charts, we have not included printers that are tagged as hybrids or primarily flatbeds; these will be covered in our August issue. • Printhead technology: Inkjet piezo, inkjet thermal, photo imager/LED/laser, other? • Colors: Which colors does the printer support? We did not include monochrome units. In the case of photo printers, we’ve indicated this with an “n/a.” • Ink types accepted: Aqueous dye? Aqueous pigmented? Solvent? Mild Solvent? UV-curable? Oil-based? Sublimation? Other? • Minimum true resolution: What is the minimum true resolution in dots per inch (dpi)? • Maximum true resolution: What is the maximum true resolution in dpi? • Maximum speed at a specific resolution: What is the printer’s fastest speed (square feet/hr) and resolution (dpi)? Note that some manufacturers provided the speed but not the resolution; some have listed this in pages per minute. • High-quality speed at a specific resolution: What is the speed (square feet/hour) and resolution (dpi) for high-quality printing? Again, some manufacturers provided the speed, but not the resolution. • RIP: What type of raster image processor comes standard with the printer, if any? If not standard, what optional RIPs are available? • Year Intro: What year was this particular printer model introduced? • Price: What’s the selling price of this printer in US dollars? Many companies do not answer this; we provided where available.

• Warranty: How long is the warranty period? • On-site Service Contract: What’s the cost of an on-site service contract? • Training: Is training standard with the purchase of the printer? Is it an option? If the latter, what is the cost? • Notes: Additional information not covered in chart cells.

Seeking a digital version? As you go through the charts, keep in mind that all information was provided by the manufacturers/suppliers. We asked for specs only on currently available printers or printers that would soon be on the market. In addition, we have strived to include only printers that currently have distribution in the US, which represents our core readership base. The majority of our readers tell us they would not typically consider buying a machine that does not have US distribution and/or service. Also note that we have included some badged machines that are based on other companies’ products; typically, these are geared toward specific niche applications or markets. Too, some manufacturers did not provide information on newly released printers; in addition, some manufacturers chose to not include models that seemed to still be on the market and we honored these requests. And note that some printer manufacturers were unable to reply to our requests for information due to deadline constraints, so these companies and their printers were not included. Prefer your data in digital format? A reminder here about our annual Printer Sourcebook, which combines these charts with our upcoming August-issue flatbed/hybrid charts and does so in digital PDF format. We’ll publish the Sourcebook in early autumn and post to bigpicture.net (look for announcements on the site as well as via LinkedIn (linkedin.com/groups?gid=1823369), Twitter (twitter.com/ bigpicturemag), Pinterest (pinterest.com/bigpicturemag), and Facebook (facebook.com/thebigpicturemagazine). www.bigpicture.net

FLATBEDS

FOREVER

Specs on more than 90 flatbed and hybrid printers.

For many shops, the flatbed has become the go-to device of our industry for a variety of applications. Yes, the rollfed printer still has its place at the output table – and some would argue it still sits at the head of that table – but the flatbed and its hybrid cousin have been slowly but surely elbowing their way to more and more of the meal’s prime cuts in recent years. The flatbed’s popularity has surged because manufacturers have bolstered the machines with additional capabilities – increased speed, broader color gamuts, and improved ink technologies, superior resolutions, and so on. As a result, more can be done with flatbeds and hybrids than ever before. To help you in selecting your next flatbed or hybrid printer, we’ve collected comprehensive specifications on more than 90 machines from nearly 30 printer manufacturers, and present them here. Consider these specs a good starting point in your hardware quest. Some notes on the data: • Company: We’ve listed the manufacturer; if a company has an exclusive US distributor, we’ve listed that information in the Notes section. • Printer model: Models are often combined if the only difference between them is media width or colors. • Maximum media width (in inches): Media width, not image width; minimum is 24 inches. • Maximum media thickness: In millimeters or inches. • Media: What kind of media will the printer handle – is there a roll option? • Printhead technology: Most machines are inkjet piezo. • Colors: What inksets are supported?

• Ink types accepted: Most flatbeds/hybrids are UVcurable, some indicated aqueous or solvent. • Minimum/maximum resolution (true/apparent): What is the minimum/maximum true/apparent resolution? We asked for both true and apparent resolution specs; if a company provided both, we’ve listed as true/apparent in that order. If only one spec is listed, it’s typically true resolution. • Maximum speed at a specific resolution: What’s the printer’s fastest speed (sq ft/hr) and resolution (dpi)? • High-quality speed at a specific resolution: What is the speed (sq ft/hr) and resolution (dpi) for high-quality printing? • RIP: What RIP comes standard? • Year Intro’d: What year was the model introduced? • Price: What’s the selling price? • Warranty: How long is the printer warranted for? • On-site service contract: What’s the cost? • Training: Is training standard? • Notes: Additional information not included elsewhere. Keep in mind that all information was provided by the manufacturers/suppliers; you can often find additional specs on their websites. We asked for specs only on currently available flatbeds and hybrids; see our July issue for our coverage of rollfed machines. Some manufacturers chose not to include models that seemed to still be on the market and we honored these requests. Finally, keep in mind that these specs will be “re-issued” in digital form via our next Printer Sourcebook, which appears online on bigpicture.net in late autumn. www.bigpicture.net

Destination

RIPs

Nearly 50 RIPs to help map your way to output.

Before the development of GPS and online mapping services like MapQuest, we were often left to our own devices when it came to traveling to unfamiliar destinations. Which, for many, meant relying on that decade-old map in the car’s glove compartment that had creases so severe that entire cities were sometimes obliterated. As a result, there was often no guarantee that the route chosen would be the most efficient, quickest, or most cost-effective – or even get us to our final destination. With more up-to-date technology, however, we’re now directed every step of the way, warned against possible bumps in the road, and even given an estimate on cost. Modern RIPs are a print provider’s MapQuest, helping best route jobs through the output process. A quality RIP can ensure optimal image quality, perform critical color matches, and streamline workflow. Plus, continuing advancements in RIPs have synched them to the latest print technologies while also allowing them to perform functions that were not previously part of the “RIP universe,” such as monitoring the use of consumables. To help you in selecting your best RIP, we asked RIP suppliers to provide us with information on each RIP model and each model’s features. For purposes of the charts on the pages that follow, we’ve limited this group to “third-party” RIPs – those RIPs typically purchased from a non-printer OEM – because these are generally engineered for more than one manufacturer’s printers. Various printer OEMs

also produce (or have produced for them) RIPs for their own machine models, and we certainly encourage shops to investigate all options when it comes to RIPs. This year, we’ve updated our chart features to include: white and metallic ink support, G7 support, step and repeat, hot folders, Web-browser interface, consumables savings and tracking capabilities, cutting options, and more. Keep these points in mind as you study the charts: • We only included RIP models that were geared toward or could handle wide-format output, according to manufacturer specs. • We list 26 RIP features, and indicate if each feature is standard (S) or optional (O) on that particular RIP. If a cell is left blank, you can assume that the feature is not offered. • Printers and file formats supported: In the interest of space, we list only the number of printers the RIP supports; see the RIP company’s website for complete information. This is also true for file formats. • We list a price when provided by the RIP supplier (most did so). • The “Notes” section contains additional information not included elsewhere in the charts. Finally, keep in mind that these charts are designed to be a staging area for your RIP research. Your next best step is to contact the RIP manufacturer/supplier to see how a specific RIP might best suit your individual operation and needs. www.bigpicture.net
