Primera Technology Introduces Accent II Disc Laminator (March 2005)
Accent II offers increased speed, robust construction, more disc formats and more media.
PLYMOUTH, MN, USA — Primera Technology, Inc., the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of CD / DVD duplication and printing equipment, today announced its new Accent II Disc Laminator.
Accent II lays down a thin layer of glossy transparent or holographic film over inkjet printed CDs and DVDs. Accent II’s overlaminate protects inkjet printed discs from water, scratching, sunlight, smudging and rough handling.
Accent II replaces the original Accent Disc Laminator and includes many new and improved features:
1. Increased Speed
Accent II now laminates 2.2 inches per second and completes a full disc in 7 seconds. The original Accent model laminated at 1.5 inches per second.
2. More Robust Construction
Several key mechanical components have been strengthened for heavier-duty, higher-volume use.
3. More Disc Formats
An adapter for laminating 80mm round CDs and DVDs as well as “hockey rink” business cards is included with every Accent II at no additional cost.
4. More Media
Some brands of inkjet printable-surface discs, depending upon relative humidity, can become slightly warped or “cupped.” Accent II’s new laminating tray and disc clamping mechanism handles virtually all of these discs with ease.
“With Accent II, our customers will enjoy more speed, more rugged construction and the ability to use a wider range of media,” said Mark D. Strobel, Primera Technology’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Accent II is the world’s only disc laminator that provides a glossy, highly water-resistant surface on inkjet printed CDs and DVDs at a reasonable cost.”
Accent II offers two types of overlaminate film:
Accent’s ClearCoat overlaminate film protects discs with a clear laminate that is highly water and scratch-resistant. With ClearCoat, printed colors become brighter, more vibrant and have a professional-looking, high-gloss finish.
Primera’s exclusive AuthentiCoat overlaminate film provides the same environmental protection as ClearCoat, but also includes holographic images embedded in the film substrate that are transferred to the surface of the discs. Both standard and custom holographic patterns are available.
- Custom holograms can include company logos, product logos, graphics and text for authentic discs. Holographic images not only impart a unique, high-end decorative feature to the discs, but also confirm that the disc is an original or an authorized copy. This helps to prevent and discourage theft of content.
Accent II can be used as a stand-alone laminator or connected with Primera’s ADL-100 High-Speed Autoloader. The ADL-100 loads and unloads up to 100 preprinted and prerecorded discs. For completely automatic burn, print and laminate operation, Accent II easily attaches to Primera’s ComposerMAX® CD / DVD Duplicator.
