Head Height Problems

I'm having problems printing on banner material using a Mimaki JV33. If I have the head set to low to prints perfect but I get head strikes. If I try to raise the head the text becomes blurred and it seems to be out of register left to right. Any ideas Please

Re: Head Height Problems

What temps are you using? We find it better using 35 35 55 the material stays flatter.

Re: Head Height Problems

I'm using 35 35 50. Do you have you head at low or high?

Re: Head Height Problems

Our heads are in the low position but we are using Roland XR640's though we have the issue of heads strikes if we use higher temps I would try lowering the temps to 30 30 55 and see if that helps

Re: Head Height Problems

Have you tried another banner material some times cheaper material will be the cause of the problems

Re: Head Height Problems

Hi Kev tried 3 different types of banner material now doesn't seem to matter if it's quality or cheap stuff

Re: Head Height Problems

Have you done a bidirectional set up for the profile you are using with the head in high position on the banner material and have you tried slowing the head scan speed down
