When you combine the AL550S autoloader with the P-55 dye sublimation printer, the result is the highest quality disc printing solution available. These machines work together to produce amazingly fast print speeds of up to 68 discs per hour! This blows away other autoloading printers currently available.
The AL550S has the robotic arm and the high capacity platform to load and unload 500 discs in an overnight shift, completely unattended. With a single ribbon in the printer, the machine can complete a print job during an overnight eight hour shift. TEAC's Photo, Color and VersaMax ribbons each can print up to 500 discs.
Another new feature is the "Sticky Disc" mode, which is smart enough to separate discs that get stuck together. Setting up the AL550S is a breeze because there is no special software to install or configure; the unit prints directly from programs. TEAC AL550S also features an LCD touchpad for adjusting setup and diagnostics directly on the unit.
The P55 printer combined with the AL550S produces the world's sharpest photo quality prints available. It is also the only four-color CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) disc printer that offers "True-Black" instead of composite black by including the Black Panel on the ribbon.
The exclusive VersaMax ribbon for the P-55 disc printer provides the widest media compatibility for the lowest cost-per-print. With the VersaMax ribbon, customers can print on almost any type of media available. Customers can now easily upgrade from their existing inkjet printer to the TEAC's P-55 thermal disc printer if they already have a robotics system they are using. This saves money in the long run because you can upgrade one component at a time if desired.
*requires special cartridges and 4 transfer ribbons (2 sets) per black ribbon = 2000 prints
