Re: Refuse, scrap metal products - MPX 90

There are probably many of us out there that have the same problem, I usually use the reverse of an item for test prints, I looked in to filing and re-polishing but it seemed like too much hard work.

Roland can only set computer settings, they cannot adjust the head height, if the height is set even slightly too high then the head won't make enough contact with the material being engraved. Good luck anyway

Are you printing with the nose cone attached?

Re: Best Material MPX 90

Sounds like you need to adjust the striking force of the print head (page 90 in the manual.) I mainly use the luxury stainless steel products from Metaza.com always a good end result.

Re: MPX 90 PROBLEM

Release the head hight screw so the head is it's lowest level, then re-tighten the screw, make sure green cap is on the turn on machine. I have had this happen after printing without the cone, assume it's some kind of safety feature?
