Re: HP receives wave of customer complaints

I'm on this program at home. He was getting regular shipments of ink that he didn't order. You'd think that would be a clue. Technically, when someone cancels our maintenance contract, the toner in the unit becomes unfunded. We have every right to go and remove it. No one ever does but the unused toner has not been paid for.

They are never going to get their act together. I spoke with Jim Corridi at the CDA meeting several months ago and he told me big things were coming down the pipeline very soon because he agreed it would be hard to upgrade 3406WD systems with a 3406WD system. He also, however, acted like the Epson was going to be the latest and greatest thing for all of us that sell wide format. Not sure why since we don't typically mess with the ink jet machines.

Its all color from this point forward, I know Oce (or CSA) is thinking the same way. I can't speak for Ricoh but at this point why would you put any money into it.

No, we are not doing any of those agreements with our MFP's. With the printer the device billing would not include the drum, or fuser. Client would pay for those. Device billing is a practical maintenance agreement for the new A3 ink based MFP's. Epson will be launching their 100ppm color device shortly. The only consumables is the print head and the ink. It's rumored that the print head will be warranted for 3 years. In addition the print head is very costly. The idea would be to charge...

The most important question to ask is "how much do you copy 11x17"? If the answer is none, then the next question is "how often do you print 11x17"? When the answer is quite often, well A3 is then a no brainer, however if the answer is rarely, then I'll bundle an 11x17 laser or ink printer. Based on under 10K per month, A4 will save the customer on the TCO over the term of a 5 year lease.

Re: Memjet Color Printers to the Rescue?

This is pretty impressive, but has been around for several years. There have to be significant issues that have prevented adoption. I suspect that clogged nozzles are a really expensive problem for intermittent use machines, and imagine the level of ink wasted keeping them fresh. Folks throw a fit about a $600 print head for a Canon plotter and it's guaranteed for a year. I see a limited market for this.

The Eraser unit does not actually remove any toner from the page. The special blue toner or ink turns transparent by chemical process when heat is applied. There is no waste toner bottle. This is possibly why the same piece of paper can only be erased 6 times. Estimates are for 50% reduction in CO2 compared to a conventional MFP. The Eraser unit requires no additional consumables. The e306LP (the Eco MFP) is about the same price as a regular e306. The extra cost is for the Eraser unit. One...

From: Jim Stocker Sent: 5/3/2002 12:13 PM Just a little correction. The drums for the JP8000 ARE different than the JP5000 (an ink saving scraper system being one of the more beneficial enhancements). You have to program a TCII to take either or, not both.

Re: Vellum

Looking in the Service Management Guide, the only types of media not supported are: Coated paper, Ink-Jet paper and envelopes. As Vellum designates the type of surface of the media, instead of smooth, I would say yes, it will. I've certainly not had any problems with running vellum finished media through the 3800C. Just a note concerning transparencies to finish off, use Folex X356 or X355. Hope that helps. Cheers, Jim.

Jim, Thanx, I have visited the customer and set the SP setting to a lighter master and have the dup print at full speed. Is there a way to also have the systems always make an economy master? I have spoken to Ray Bauer @ Ricoh, another possible for the low ink cover is the fact that we are using an 11 x 17 master for every print. I have tried to find the settings for the auto master cut to 8.5 x 11 but can't. Another other hints. Art

Re: Need Help

Old Glory ·
Art, I think you'll find that you need the Black Drum 30-S #205698 to get an 8.5"x11" Master. Your looking at $600+ which would take years to pay for in ink/master savings not to mention the inconvenience of having to switch cylinders back and forth depending on original size. I think you will also find that the end users will not comply and just continue to use the 11x17 drum for 8.5x11 copies rather than hassle with the change.

Re: need for specs and picture of TC II

Jim Stocker ·
You have to make real sure that your drum synchronization settings are as good as you can get them, otherwise, you will experience significant "shadowing", from the offset of wet ink onto the second unit. If the settings are good. The overall quality is acceptable in most cases. Attached is a Getstener brand brochure. I follow it with some images. Hope it helps. Jim.

Re: question on digital duplicators

Also the short drum uses less ink, with the increased master yield and decreased ink saturation of the master, you get a lower per page cost. This can win many deals in schools where they have been using duplicators that only cut a 17 inch master for a letter sheet.

Re: Halftones w/JP8500 & Quark

Quick note about Quark and LPI. First the obvious thing, changing LPI will change the size of the dots in your Photo. a low LPI, like 60 will make the dots in the photo readily apparent(not always a bad thing). A high LPI like 133 will make the dots so small many pictures will come out as a big blob of ink on the duplicator. Secondly, Quark will downsample any TIFF image to twice the resolution of your LPI, so a 65LPI setting means you are printing 130dpi TIFFs, again, this isn't such a bad...

There are no laser based wide format color systems out there from the major manufacturers. If there are, they are price prohibitive.

They can scan the color document and direct it to print on the inkjet printer. No doubt an expensive output solution because it is ink based. Probably looking at the $40,000 range for this one.

Re: SERI Launch Date

FYI, SeriPrint is compatible with JP5000/5500/8000/8500/TC2 only. When tied into the SeriPrint system, the unit is no longer able to print with the standard emulsified ink offering, as the SeriPrint unit has top mounted rollers at its' exit section, which would cause surface trailing as the emulsified ink would not have enough time to dry. Mind you, who would want to print with "dry-time consuming" inks when you can print with something that dries instantaneously, when "flashed" with UV?
