High Precision and Reliability
Discproducer is built to withstand hard knocks and keep dust out. The solid
body provides a sturdy housing for the intricate technologies within to run
processes smoothly without any interruption.
Misfed and damaged discs are a thing of the past, thanks to the patented
AcuGrip robotic arm which reliably handles one disc at a time. This reduces
the risk of incurring scratches on the disc, often caused by conventional
sliding mechanisms and prevents interruptions during unsupervised
production, caused by mechanical blockage.
Unrivalled Performance
with Cost Savings
Epson’s industry-leading Micro Piezo
print head and ink technology ensure
uniform, stable ink droplets with virtually
no satellites or misting, producing
brilliant and crisp disc labels at a high
resolution of up to 1440 dpi x 720 dpi.
Epson’s Micro Piezo™ technology also
protects against striation and ink bleed,
and allows ultra-fine colour graduation
plus razor-sharp text – even in small font
Convenient and Fuss-Free Operation
Discproducer includes easy-to-use Total Disc Maker™ software for fast and
efficient production of CDs and DVDs in just three simple steps.
Step 1:
Compile Data
Disc Editing mode lets you indicate the
type of data to be burned – for example
a music, video or data disc – then load
the data and save it into a created
folder. It’s quick and easy, so even nonexperts and novices will find it a breeze.
Step 2:
Compose the Print Image
Instead of traditional whole cartridges,
Discproducer utilises six individual highcapacity ink cartridges that are easily
replaced in a few seconds, thus allowing
you to print more while keeping running
costs low.
Label Editing mode lets you compose
your CD/DVD label using pre-defined
templates and provided images or even
customize your own design. Preview
your finished composition and store it
for easy retrieval in the future.
Step 3:
Configure for Production
Publishing mode lets you set
parameters such as the number of CDs
or DVDs to be burned, the burning and
print speed, the in/out trays for discs,
and print resolution. Then simply press
“Publish” and your production run is on
its way.
Discproducer PP-100 at a Glance
Epson Discproducer is the only
system in its class with an LED
ink status indicator for each
individual ink colour.
1 Ink level status LED
2 Six individual ink cartridges
3 Three media trays for runs
up to 100 discs
4 External output tray
5 AcuGrip robotic feeder arm
Monitoring System Reliability
Compact Design
The Discproducer’s Monitoring Software keeps you informed about
all-important parameters such as tray status and pending jobs.
This helps you choose whether to let your production run continue
unattended, and protects you against unexpected interruptions,
especially when facing tight deadlines.
At less than 40cm wide, the Discproducer is one of the smallest systems
in its class. Its flat top allows for another unit to be stacked above to save
space or be used as a storage surface for media and print cartridges.
Convenient Total Front-Operation
Discproducer is the only system in its class that offers the ergonomic
advantages of total front-operation and status reporting.
Unlike other systems that allow publishing to continue without ink,
Discproducer shows ink level status using an LED for each individual
colour. This allows the printing process to be manually or automatically
interrupted in case of a near-empty ink cartridge, thereby eliminating
damage and waste.
Versatile Operating Modes
Choose from three operating modes to suit your production:
Batch mode – for larger runs of up to 100 discs
Standard mode – for smaller runs of up to 50 discs
External mode – for up to 5 discs
Discproducer includes mixed media support for simultaneous production
of CDs and DVDs by specifying the setting for each stacker. It also has an
additional drawer for up to 5 discs, so individual CD/DVD blanks can be
conveniently removed without having to open the housing.
Quiet Operation
Work in peace while the Discproducer does all the heavyduty work quietly within the sturdy chassis.

Actual cartridge yields may be lower with high-density images, hot and dusty conditions, less frequent printing, or printing predominantly with one colour. All ink colours are used for
printing and printer maintenance, and all colours have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer startup and a variable
amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the “replace Cartridge” signal.
The printer’s ink pad is estimated to become saturated and need replacing after about 30,000 discs. Based on printing 2,000 discs per month, bi-directional. Actual results will vary
based on such factors as images printed, print settings, media type, frequency of use and temperature.
