How long does the print take when you include disc picking mechanism?
Just a little over 20 seconds. The 4100 series includes the improvements to the disc picking mechanism that were developed in the last Xi update. That makes the mechanics about 300% faster than previous Bravo units.
What about print costs?
The 4100 Series has separate ink cartridges for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. (The first Primera printer or publisher to do this.) This means you replace only the color that needs replenishing, saving money on each printed disc. This places the cost per disc at around 6 to 12-cents per disc. This is definitely Primera’s most affordable disc publishing option.
Any other changes?
The chassis has been updated and now has more metal parts. It makes the unit slightly heavier but more robust.
