I have done some research on this Matan Sprinter A and it will print to Vinyl, perforated (one-way vision), translucent, reflective, backlit, banner, flex, PVC, clear, paper, Tyvek, transfer paper, and more...
It is a 36" (35.5 print area) wide printer and will print 400 sq. ft. an hour. Try that with a edge or versacam. It will last 4-5 year outdoor without lamination. The cost is around .48 cents a sq. ft. to print full color and you can print to any uncoated material.Below is some specs and type of ribbons available.
This printer was bought new in 2001 for $152,000.00 and was hardley used. I am asking 11,000.00 and that includes the RIP.
This is a steal and will make someone alot of money. Imagine selling prints wholesale at 3.00 a sq. ft and making 2.00 profit. Now take that times 400. that is 800.00 an hour. If you were to pay the original 152,000.00 it would take a while but at 11,000 you could make it back in the first few months.
Media handling Roll-to-Roll printing (3" core).
Output Durability No coating or lamination needed for output outdoor durability of 3-5 years.
7-10 years with lamination (Depending on the substrate used and environment).
Workflow No RIPping time RIPs on-the-fly for Tiff: 50 dpi & Tiff Bitmap files 200/400 dpi. EPS or PostScript files can be RIPped on an external standard support RIP software.
