Orange Peel Effect

Post by GP-Grafix » Mon May 14, 2012 9:46 pm

Hi I have a Roland 540xc Pro III, I have a new material which is a high gloss, I am having problems printing on it, I have tried using different profiles but the print is coming out with a pattern on it similar to the skin of an orange, the spot colours are also a bit on the pale side, I can get the inks to print darker but the orange peel effect gets worse, has any one any ideas how I can remedy the problem.

Thanks :(

Hi,

Which media are you using and what quality settings are you using?

It could be that you need to lower the ink limits for the material.

One thing to check is the head height that the machine is set to and that the full width scan is enabled, is the pattern still there if you print Uni-directional?

Just wondering if you had any joy improving your print quality?

in some print modes i notice similar with the VS but as it has a completely different head system did not really want to comment.
the orange peel effect i see is only while the ink is damp and disappears buy the time i come to laminate just a little disconcerting at first. and think its to do with the way the material is being swollen slightly by the solvents then as the solvents evaporate so the material settles down.
