    • Head-to-tail printing for longer jobs where printed media is collected on a front core, flipped over, and reinstalled with side B up

Notes

  • Single-roll printing for side B
  • Use of X-cutter and Y-slitters with automatic blockout is limited:
    • Slitters – possible according to built-in instructions
    • Cutter – can be used for side B

  • Protects the print carriage and printheads from crashing into uneven media edges
  • Eliminates ruined jobs and prevents media waste
  • Attaches quickly and easily with magnets anywhere along the printing table
  • Use as many units as needed and multiple units for multi-roll printing

  • Position and tilt angle are adaptable to the media type and width

Wrinkle analyser – helps avoid printhead strikes caused by media wrinkles, saving time and money by preventing ruined jobs and enabling the use of lower-cost media.

  • Media height detector identifies a media wrinkle before it reaches the printhead
  • The front-end software prompts the user to raise the carriage just enough to avoid a head strike that may ruin the job and, then, to resume printing

Mobile operator station – mobile workstation slides from its home position towards the middle of the printer.

  • Saves the operator from moving back and forth between the station and the output
  • Equipped with a touch screen for quick and easy operation
  • Increases productivity and usability

Media saving wizard

  • Designed to improve media stock management
