All autoloaders use either 44x CD-R writers, or 4x
DVD-R drives. The DVD-R drive also can record CD-R discs
at 16x speed.
The HiPAS/2 and HiPAS/4 models feature four input/output
bins with dynamic-allocation (CD input/DVD input/CD
output/DVD output), that allow up to 300 discs to be
processed before loading/unloading is required.
The PASsport has a 120-disc capacity with three dynamically-allocated
bins, and also allows mixed CD and DVD production.
The AutoMate has a 50-disc capacity with individual
input and output bins.
The label printing operation is fast and seamless,
with no manual disc handling required. Virtually any
disc can be used. Special coatings or "printable" discs
are not required. The printer uses a thermal transfer
printing process with 300 dpi for sharp, crisp graphics,
and text. There is no bleeding or drying times as with
ink jet printers.
Optional laser alignment allows use with preprinted
discs such as presilkscreened discs. Young Minds' autoloaders
are controlled by PowerStudio, MPS4+, or StudioX intelligent
controllers. MPS4+ and StudioX can be configured with
the HiPAS/2 or /4 for high capacity "lights out" disc
production. PASsport and AutoMate are controlled by
PowerStudio to create a low cost, fully automated production
