Mitsubishi Electric Adds Economical Compact Dye-Sub CP-K60DW-S Photo Printer


Irvine, CA—Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America (MEVSA) introduced an economical, portable dye-sublimation printer, the CP-K60DW-S, which has an entry-level price and is designed for event photographers on the go and photo booth integrators.

With a lightweight, compact form factor, the CP-K60DW-S features an innovative ribbon rewind function that is said to maximize the number of prints per roll when switching between print sizes and/or print counts. The rewind function allows the CP-K60DW-S to print on an unused portion of the media, which helps users save money.

“Unlike other printers in its price category, this new CP-K60DW-S rewind feature lets photographers use every inch of the ink ribbon media and still produce the best quality print for its price,” said Ed Najera, product manager, MEVSA. “It can add up to real savings.”

Like its higher end counterparts in the Mitsubishi dye-sub printer line, the CP-K60DW-S creates richly colored 2×6-, 3.5×5-, 4×6-, 5×7-, 6×6- and 6×8-inch prints, in either glossy or matte finishes. Users can also choose to print in fine mode or higher density, ultrafine mode for deeper contrast and higher definition.

The printer’s front-loading design makes changing paper and replacing ink media simple and straightforward. It also makes the CP-K60DW-S ideal for integration into a photo booth. Mitsubishi’s dust-free, enclosed construction means that paper is ejected only when the photo print is complete, so prints are delivered clear and artifact free.

Also featured are three energy efficient modes: sleep, power saver and printing, with sleep mode using a half watt of power. The printer also has a fast restart time, and specs say it is ready to print in only three seconds.

“Professional photographers need clear beautiful prints; photo-booth operators need prints delivered quickly; both need them at an economical price point. We are very excited about our new CP-K60DW-S printer. It delivers the goods,” said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. 

The CP-K60DW-S comes with Mitsubishi Electric’s service and Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) program, a nationwide service that offers next business-day replacement for units that are under warranty. During the initial one-year warranty period, an optional extended warranty plan can also be purchased to get up to five years of warranty coverage total.
