Features & Benefits

  • Resolution – 300, 600 or 1200 dpi on material axis (1200 dpi requires OMEGA 4.0 or later and EDGE FX firmware update). 300 dpi on head axis.
  • True spot color printing – GerberColor Foils – Save time and generate better quality graphics with dedicated spot colors.
  • GerberColor Spectratone Color Matching – Lets you create over 3700 pure, vibrant colors.
  • Advanced Foil System – Smart GerberGauge™ RFID technology tracks exact foil usage.
  • Process and specialty colors – In addition to spot colors, Gerber process, metal and fluorescent foils allow you to create full color images.
  • Durable output – 3 to 5 years outdoors without lamination.
  • EDGE READY™ materials – Fully compatible with Gerber OMEGA design software and a wide range of permanent, removable, semi-rigid substrates.
  • Matched Technology System™is fully compatible with Gerber OMEGA™ design and output software and 15″ EDGE-compatible Gerber sprocket-feed contour cutters, adding value to output and saving time.
  • Patented punch pattern – Provides superior accuracy which reduces material shifting, cut time and waste due to cut errors. Enables long unattended runs of up to 50 yards without loss of accuracy.
  • Easy material loading – Load material onto the sprocket wheels for quick, accurate and unattended material feed.
  • Easy maintenance – Unlike solvent printers, no “wake up” or “put to bed” routines are required. EDGE resin-based foils create no mess and are ready to go immediately.
  • Small footprint – The EDGE FX print-to-cut system requires limited shop space allowing you to get started quickly and inexpensively.
  • Intuitive user interface – Easy for your staff to learn and operate.
  • Use with over 30 Materials – Using heat and pressure to transfer resin-based pigments, the EDGE FX thermal transfer printer can be used on over 30 different substrates including reflective vinyl, clear films, label stock, polyester and many more.
  • Durable Colors without Lamination – Print with CMYK and over 70 spot colors while GerberColor Spectratone™ lets you create over 3,000 colors by printing spot color foil on top of on another. These are outdoor durable without the use of laminates for up to 5 years!
  • Cuts Virtually Any Shape – With an enVision™ or GS Series plotter, you are able to contour cut any shape around any printed graphic with no set up and no need for dies.
