More than just compact and affordable, Summa DC4sx is every bit a Summa DC4-class printer-cutter. Its print-performance comes from our advanced DC4 print-head; the very same head that’s in our top-of-the-line 54-inch Summa DC4. Tracking accuracy is also spot-on, thanks to our unique OptiTrac, optical laser tacking system. And cutting is so fast and accurate that it could only be a Summa.

Summa DC4sx is also the most versatile printer we’ve offered. It prints and cuts a wide variety of media in ultra-popular and cost-efficient 24- and 30-inch widths. Plus, with the automatic tiling feature in our Color Control RIP + Cut software, you can produce images of virtually unlimited size. So your shop will have the flexibility to market everything from tiny labels to huge fleet graphics.

Best of all, Summa DC4sx, like every Summa product, is backed with unlimited toll-free support. Whether you’re new to digital or a seasoned professional, we’re there to help you get the most from your Summa equipment.
