    Anybody had any experiences either with this printer or the company Digitech? They make claims about longevity, user serviceability and accuracy but the printer is brand new and being an early adopter is always risky. It is about the same price as the better established Agfa Mira. https://www.digitechusa.com/

    I wonder if they are the same Digitech that makes guitar pedals? Roland also makes guitar pedals.

    Their website says the most advanced model can do more than 60 sheets per hour all day every day, including load and reload time.

    I thought that had to be some sort of typo... until I saw this demo video posted last week:

    Would love to see the results up close, but that speed is certainly impressive.

    I second this request. Anyone have a new trufire with the magnetic drive and auto-unloader? Would love to hear some real life reviews of the machine.

    We have the TrufireX2 with the auto unloader. Machine is insanely fast and built very well. I really was not sold on the auto unloader at first but are really glad that we went with it. When you are printing a board every 45 seconds, your operator does not have time to unload and reload. Not to mention how physically demanding that is for a 8 hour shift. The second the auto unloader picks up the board we are loading another one right behind it.

    The color gamut, quality, adhesion and speed are are almost too good to be true. Service has been great as we have a direct line to 4 different techs. No opening a service ticket and waiting for a call back. We have had the machine a little over a month and it has not skipped one single beat. I would imagine we have put about 70k square feet through it in that time. Can’t really think of anything I would change on this machine as it has been a really good fit for our company.

    I am happy to answer any questions if anybody has any.

    Awesome response thank you. Did you have a flatbed before this one to compare it to?

    Yes. We have 2 HPs that we run in addition to the Trufire. We are printing 1.5 4x8s to every 18x24 on our HPs. It’s almost comical.
