Flight Case for Citizen CW-01 Photo Printer
Loading fresh media is a breeze via the front-opening panel, which also allows for stacking and easy maintenance.
A software supported function monitor allows you to view the operational status of the printer including the quantity of media remaining.
What the manufacturer CITIZEN has to say about the CW-01:
Through its advanced design, the CW-01 provides both superb image quality and high speed.
Professional Image Quality
The CW-01 sets a new standard for commercial photo printers; utilising Dye Sublimation Thermal Transfer Technology to achieve high resolution with finely graduated, rich realistic colour and grayscale rendering that surpasses that of traditional silver halide photo printing.
The CW-01 provides unsurpassed printing throughput. A powerful print/communication engine and double buffer memory are incorporated. These devices enable the printer to perform 'non-interrupted' high-speed printing. The CW-01's new type mechanism also balances both high-speed drive and quiet printing.
The CW-01 can achieve a high throughput because it is double-buffered. A standard printer is usually single-buffered and processes jobs sequentially, pausing after each job to process incoming data. The double-buffer removes the need to pause and so enables the CW-01 to print the next job immediately after form-feed.
The CW-01 uses its proprietary powerful high-performance engine called 'PSS-II', which provides quiet, high-speed printing. This powerful engine incorporates double-buffer memory management and advanced print head control circuitry, which enables fast, non-interrupted printing at low noise levels.
The CW-01 is a heavy duty device, even under high-speed operation. Rugged and reliable either as a stand-alone or networked in a mini-lab, it copes comfortably in heavy workload environments. In fact this printer is so robust that its print head and engine mechanism lifespan is quoted as being more than twice as long as comparable models.
The CW-01 contains a wealth of monitoring functions. It is software enabled, which means it is fully supported by a robust suite of software tools and API's.
Easy to Use
Front panel access makes the CW-01 very easy to use. It was designed with usability in mind, so the front panel access facilitates everyday operations and routine maintenance without the need for expert operator intervention.
