    Just got one installed last week. I know there have been some threads on it so if anyone has questions, I'd be happy to try to answer or run some prints.

    My intention is to use this to print wall wraps on IJ180 and a lot of Window Perf on it.

    So far, I've learned you can't really print decals on it because the material gets so brittle that its impossible to weed after its cut. All the matrix just breaks apart and it takes forever.

    Haha wow. Great some honest feedback from an actual user.

    I heard only cheaper monomeric vinyls get brittle. Have you tried intermediate/cast?

    Congratulations on the new equipment. I’m looking at it for similar applications - wall coverings and banners.

    I’m interested to know why you plan to use 180 instead of a wall paper product.

    Chris,
    How long will the warranty be?
    How much will a service contract cost?

    What mode are you mostly running? We evaluated one and on paper we were sold. There are a few short comings that stopped us from purchasing which was disappointing because a lot of the machine and usability is awesome and would of fit into our workflow.

    The things we found were the print quality at 20sqm an hour was only acceptable to us. At 40sqm there were print artefacts in terms of a gloss banding or step issue.

    the little white wheels leave puncture marks in synthetic materials.

    If they could fix those two issues I'd be sold.

    Service contract is based on useage. Average about $600 a month and does not include cost of a head. Only includes labor to replace it.

    I have been running production mode for window perf which has been great. I run about 1000 sf of window perf daily. IJ180cv3 which I use for wall wraps we have been running on High quality which is 430 sf an hour.

    I ran avery 2903 for some decals and had to use specialty mode to get a good result. Thats 215 sf an hour.

    We are having one installed next week. Anything we should know about that we can "pre-warn" the technician about?

    I see SwissQ are bringing out a roll fed printer.
    That should be interesting.
