Allen Datagraph (ADSI) 24” sign making vinyl plotter / cutter with Fiery EFI XJ-W RIP Server
Allen Datagraph Systems, Inc. model 224 (24 inch)
I used the plotter a few years back and it worked great. It has been in storage (environmentally controlled) for the last three years.
When last used it worked great. However, I have not tried to cut vinyl/use it since being in storage but I did plug it in and it powers up so it should be fine. However, I am not warranting it.
The newer model Datagraph 230, which looks exactly the same as the 224 but has a 30” capacity, goes for $2900 dollars. Again however, I am not selling a 230 and this has a 24" capacity.
Also being sold is the Fiery EFI XJ-W RIP Server that it came with;
EFI (Electronics For Imaging, Inc.)
RIP stands for Raster Image Processor.
I did not use the RIP server when I was cutting with the Datagraph so I cannot attest to its functioning. However, as you can see from the pictures it powers up, self tests, and appears to work fine. However, I am not warranting it.
The only problem I noticed is that the front (plastic) cover is a little loose
A RIP program is similar to the print driver included with your printer, but with much more control (and features).
A RIP will allow you to process and print multiple files at the same time. Having this capability will greatly improve printing production and efficiency.
Imagine printing a job, processing another job, and preparing more jobs to come later; all at the same time.
A RIP will give you complete control over handling your files including: scaling, rotating, color correction, color profiling to a wide array of media types, multiple copies, nesting, and much more.
Apparently these RIP servers go for about $2,000 to $3,000 dollars
Again, this is being sold AS-IS and with no warranties express or implied.
