Clear film proofer
« on: January 13, 2021, 04:28:49 PM »
I’m needing to replace our old Roland Quadra we use for printing clear film (using fast dry Aspect film).
Will also need to do stamping/emboss files on it occasionally so I need something stable (low distortion as it goes through the printer).
What is everyone using for this?

We output film here, we use the Exile Liberator.
Extremely stable, dead on accurate when set correctly.
We use it of our silkscreen, dies, etc.
We output film for several of the local printers around.

We use an Epson P8000 on clear material, stable enough that the biomed clients accept it for their "QC" tool for their IFUs.
For dies and such we usually don't bother and email pdfs to vendors
Hopefully I won't be there, I should be in recovery from  knee replacement surgery.
