Summa DC5 has a full 50.2" print and cut width, not like other thermal transfer (thermal resin) print and cut systems, e.g.  Gerber Edge.  Even the little DC5sx prints and cuts a full 26.4 inches.  And with the new OptiPrintTM feature, which cleans dust and debris from vinyl, both DC5 and DC5sx deliver superior output on a wider range of materials - saving you money! Which other printers can do that? And unlike ink jet printers, your prints are ready-to-go as soon as they're finished printing! You can even take them right off the printer and walk on them - no smearing or smudging!! Can your Roland offer that? Then immediately put them outdoors for up to 5 years, with no laminating! Saving you more money! Do you know an inkjet printer that can do that for you?

There's more!  Here's why our clients love Summa's thermal transfer printer technology: 
1.
  It's so easy to use.
   
a) Unlike ink jet print and cut systems,  there are no print heads to prime, purge, or clean. This means no mess and no fuss! And no clogging!
   
b)  Unlike ink jet print and cut systems, e.g. Roland, there's no need to laminate except for extreme conditions.  What good is print and cut technology if you have to remove the print to laminate it before cutting, anyway?
  
2.  Because there are no fumes, ventilation is not required! And you won't have your staff going home because of headaches. Even eco-solvent ink jet printers can't guarantee that.
 
3.
DC5 holds 8, and DC5sx holds 5, high-capacity, auto-changing cassettes at a time. Yes, there are spot colours, for that brilliant, clean effect you want. You can even combine spot and process colours with metallic foils for more dazzling effects. How amazing is that! 

4.
  Power take-up rollers, OptiTrac
TM laser-guided tracking, and Encore print alignment guarantee accuracy. Colour registration is dot-on-dot tight, and cut lines are unbelievably precise (really, they are!).
 
5.
  Software enhanced resolution provides up to 609 x 609 apparent dpi for unbeatable image quality.
 
6.
  Did I mention they run completely unattended? 

7.
 For all it's greatness, the Summa DC5 has a relatively small foot print, taking up a minimum amount of floor space.  Of course, if you have even less space, the DC5sx is the perfect option for you.
 
8.
 
Summa's European engineering and craftsmanship guarantees superior quality.

NO LAMINATION MEANS LOW PRODUCTION COST PER SQUARE FOOT, WHICH ADDS UP TO INCREDIBLE, AMAZING VALUE. Why should you buy a Summa DC5 or DC5sx?  Read on...

Total Automation
Vinyl graphics, contour cut or tiled to any size, guaranteed durability, without lamination, and operation even while you're away. With self-adjusting media loading, auto-changing ribbon cassettes, power take-up rollers, and auto diagnostic technologies built in.

Process, Spot, and Metallic Colors
Choice of six high capacity, auto-changing cassettes plus process, spot color, and metallic ribbons. You can combine spot and process colors with metallic foils for dazzling effects. 

ColorControlTM Rip & Cut 
Lightening-fast PostScript 3 compatible RIP works together with intelligent contour cutting technology that identifies cut lines from inside your print files. Because this is standard equipment, there are no hidden costs, and you get incredibly fast and powerful printing software.

Ready on Demand
Turn it on and you're making signs. With the instant-drying and eco-friendly resin inks there are no clogged printheads, so you won't waste time cleaning. And your clients won't waste time waiting for images to dry.

OptiTracTM Media Handling
Load your material and OptiTrac's laser-guided tracing system aligns it automatically. Then it keeps the media aligned from start to finish. Color registration is dot-on-dot tight. Cut lines are so precise they'll amaze you.

Affordable to Own and Operate
At this price it's a bargain, and it offers the lowest operational cost of any printer in its class. Summa DC5 sets new standards for affordability.  The powerful, little DC5sx is even more affordable!

ABOUT SUMMA:   For more than a quarter-century, Summa engineers have designed some of the most popular, affordable and durable equipment solutions for the sign making, outdoor advertising and aircraft marking industries.  Summa's rich history began in a factory raised in Gistel, Belgium in 1973. The factory was established to assemble high-tech recording devices used in, among other things, the manufacture of precision optical lens. Summa's evolution into vinyl imaging started in 1987, when it began modifying pen-plotters for use in vinyl-cutting applications. That evolution led to what Summa is today, a recognized global leader in vinyl cutting and imaging equipment for the sign, outdoor advertising and aerospace markets.

Summa Inc. formed in January 2000 after the merger of AirMark, Inc., WestComp, Inc., and CalComp Display Products, Inc. (formerly Summagraphics).
