Nimbie Sidekick Series

Part Number Inkjet printer compatible Nimbie USB compatible


Epson inkjet printer prints on paper in auto-feed, yet it labels disc in manual-feed -- one disc at a time via manually feeding the caddie. The Nimbie Sidekick auto-feeds the caddie for automated publishing of 100 or more discs using the original Epson printer.

With no modification to the printer required, simply attach Nimbie Sidekick to the printer for automated disc publishing use. Detach the Nimbie Sidekick and it is back for paper printing use.

Support Up to 6 Nimbie Simultaneously on One PC

MultiNK50V With the MultiNK50V 6 Printers Edition Software, up to 6 Nimbie Sidekick caddy loaders can be connected to one PC. MultiNK50V can simultaneously utilize multiple caddy loaders to automate disc printing. Just in a few clicks, MultiNK50V raises disc capacity up to 600 discs when 6 caddy loaders are implemented.

Non-Stop Disc Refilling with First In, First Out Operation

With the patent-pending top-feeding loader, refilling discs is as simple as adding more on top of the existing ones, making it possible to duplicate an unlimited number of discs without interrupting ongoing project. The discs will be processed in FIFO (first in and first out) order.

Time Saving Loading and Unloading Mechanism

Traditional auto-loaders use a robotic arm which moves back and forth to pick up, load and unload discs one at a time. Nimbie employs independent loader and unloader eliminating redundant arm movements, shortening the cycle time, and increasing the production.

Efficient and Economical

Many traditional all-in-one disc publishers are costly and require expensive proprietary ink cartridges. Nimbie Sidekick is the most affordable solution to automatically create 6-color, professional-looking discs and to effectively take advantage of separate cartridges to save ink cost.


Nimbie comes with a 1-year limited warranty. Please contact us for details!
