3 Benefits of Updating Your Wide Format Printer

Posted on May 25, 2017

Is it time to replace your wide format printer? There are several factors to take into consideration when evaluating the longevity of your print equipment. Replacing your wide format printer will reveal three great benefits.

Improved Performance

The print industry, just like any technology industry, is always changing. New equipment and techniques are constantly being developed. If your wide format printer is a few years old, you may already be noticing that it lags behind the performance of newer printers. However, this doesn’t mean you need to replace it. Your printer may just be due for an update!

Operating system developers and software manufacturers are always trying to stay ahead of the game by reviewing and updating their software to keep up with the growing demands of the industry. This means that if your driver software isn’t also keeping up with these updates, your printer may not run as optimally as it did when you first purchased it. Simply staying up-to-date with driver and firmware updates will keep your wide format printer in great condition.

Meet Rising Print Demands

Sometimes an update to driver software is all it takes to get your wide format printer operating at the efficiency your company requires. However, there are other times when growing print demand–often coinciding with a growing company–simply requires a new printer altogether. You may also have a growing demand for higher quality prints or larger print sizes. These needs are also solved by replacing your printer with a better model.

Replace Aging Parts

Every single piece of equipment in your print fleet has a lifespan. Any printer that is heavily used for several years will eventually slow down and stop working. An old printer simply may not be able to meet your needs. Common signs of an aging wide format printer that needs to be replaced are frequent paper jams, not enough memory, and consistent failure of the motherboard in the middle of print jobs. These shortcomings cost your company a lot of valuable time and money. Replacing your wide format printer alleviates these issues and ensures that you won’t need to get another replacement for several years to come.
