More concurrent users

TSeveral users can be registered on the systemís ĎTotal Disc Net Administrationí software. The system can store up to 80 jobs on its internal hard drive and the latest jobs can be retrieved in the form of a template and be reproduced at any time.

Data protection and security

Since your data can be sent via your network to the Epson Discproducer PP-100N, you can deactivate the CD/DVD burners on local workstations. This gives the network administrator full control over the burning of data onto optical media. A door lock prevents opening the door during operation and ensures safe production.

Wide range of applications

Whether you need to burn and print a few CDs or DVDs at a time or up to 100, Epsonís easy-to-use, feature-packed Discproducer is the answer. Itís ideal for a wide range of businesses and organisations including duplication service providers, schools and universities to professional photographers and ad agencies, clinics and medical practices, government departments, kiosk applications, corporate communication centres, software IT companies, etc.

BestĖinĖclass printing

The Epson Discproducer features a built-in Epson inkjet printer with Epsonís patented MicroPiezo technology. Using six colours instead of the common four, it delivers the highest print quality available in its class for crisp, clear text and vibrant graphics at up to 1440 x 1440 dpi resolution. And with just one set of high-capacity ink cartridges, you can print over 1,000 discs. In addition, ink level status is shown for each colour to prevent printing without ink.

Best–in–class Cost per Disc Thanks to Epson's individual inks system, the cost of each produced media is low as you only need to replace the colour used and, depending on the print image, you can produce over 1,000 discs from one set of cartridges. And when a cartridge becomes empty, the PP-100N automatically stops printing until itís replaced to avoid miss-prints.

The Epson Discproducer also provides you with more affordable disc duplication and printing. Cost per Disc calculations are based on Epson's Internal Testing with a set of new ink cartridges. For further details please see Disc yields page....More.

Software Simple As 1, 2, 3
Epsonís comprehensive Total Disc Maker software lets you quickly compile your data, create labels and configure the production process all in one easy-to-use application. It also includes a program that displays the status of all jobs and devices. The bridge tool (downloadable via the website) allows you to communicate with other applications.

TECHNOLOGY

AcuGrip™ Built to Perform
Unlike other disc publishers, the Epson Discproducer features patented AcuGrip picking technology which ensures that only one disc is placed in the drive or printer even if two are stuck together. The arm has a guide that places it in the centre of the disc. Then three independently powered fingers extend to separate the top disc from the remaining discs. Finally the peel off lever (or kicker lever) lifts the top disc for transportation. If more than one disc is lifted, they will be put in the reject stacker or the system will indicate an error has occurred. This technology not only increases the life of the product, but helps protect against the interruption of unattended production runs due to mechanical blockage.

Micro Piezo Print Head
MicroPiezo® print heads are at the heart of every Epson ink jet printer. These print heads spray ink through microscopic nozzles, or holes on the print head. Each of these nozzles has tiny, piezo electric elements, which vibrate tens of thousands of times per second, allowing the nozzle to fire ink droplets onto the disc at extremely rapid rates. No heat is involved in the printing. This ensures greater accuracy when firing ink droplets precisely onto the disc. And, it gives the printer greater control over ink droplet size. MicroPiezo technology ensures uniform, stable ink droplets with virtually no satellites or misting all of which means you get the high quality results you’d expect from Epson.

Building on the Strength and Experience of Epson Robotics
When you build industrial robots, you learn about quality, reliability and precision engineering. And Epson is a world-leader in the design, development and manufacture of such robots as for medical technology and airbag testing. That’s why our other products are so reliable – because they are built on the platform of knowledge and experience gained from the robotics environment. The Epson Discproducer™ is a perfect example. Its compact design, coupled with its dust-proof body and a minimum of moving parts, delivers precision performance, superb reliability and amazingly low running costs.
