Really? Why? The experiences you have documented are horrendous, and irrespective of where any fault lies, most people would be up for a completely different replacement solution - brand, vendor and support.I don't think i'd dare switch to anything but Xerox,
You're talking single sided SRA3 posters on a dry toner production machine? You want that in less than a minute!I'm not being unreasonable thinking I should be able to get 10 posters done in an hour right? I like my margins to be 3mm around the print & with no dust or specs trapped under the toner...it's not much to ask.
Just to put into perspective, the last job yesterday evening for our KM C4080 was a run of 250 x SRA3 250GSM silk, to both sides, heavy coverage in parts. We need to laminate, cut & crease today to make a 4-panel A4 card. From RIPing to taking the job off the press took less than 15 minutes. Registration - perfect. Wastage - nil. Colour consistency - print #1 and print #250 no noticeable difference to the eye.
