White Banding (!)

Hi all, we had an engineer out on Tuesday and they services our LEF-20. We have since had the white and Cyan/Magenta heads replaced to try and sort out the banding and lines issues but unfortunately, the problem continues!! I'm hoping someone might be able to identify the problem with our white prin...

Re: BN-20 Printing with White Ink

Quick question... Do you all shake your 'spare' white cartridges daily as well as the one installed in the machine?

Re: Spots and dimples in gloss on LEF-20

Hi teamADW, We also have an LEF-20 and have had the same problem that you've encountered with gloss printing. We have found that the following steps minimises (although does not eradicate) the problem. - We've covered the inside of the machine in carpet protector (adhesive side up) to catch any dust...

Re: BN-20 Media

Spot on! You were right, the utility was out of date. Now showing white - thanks very much.

Re: BN-20 Media

Thanks Kai.

Typical - BN-20 utility and versaworks seem to show different setups (see image attached)

Is it possible for Roland to tell by the serial number?

BN-20 Media

Good morning all, Last week I took delivery of a second hand BN-20 to add to our "Print Lab" (now LEF-20 and BN-20 - still undecided whether or not to take the plunge with the LEF-300) I've been testing it out with Metamark MD3 vinyl over the past few days and all seems great. I'd quite like some pe...

Re: Versacamm 300i

If I understand you correctly, your print should come out fine. Versaworks doesn't show a crisp image in the preview on the right hand side but if you actually print it, the result should be how you designed it.

Re: Another Variable Data Query..

That's a shame, I've just tried a block filled with 100% black, export and PDF and print using white only in VersaWorks but nothing prints. Perhaps it won't work on our machine as it is only about 10 months old.

Re: Another Variable Data Query..

Hi Kai - Would you be able to explain how you can print white when using 100% black? I'm very intrigued.

Re: The new LEF-300!

Had an email about this yesterday. I'd be interested to see how long a full bed in CMYK + White would take rather than just 60% faster (than what?! Could be lef-12 or 20) It also annoys me that Roland can't use grey scale for printing white / clear whereas I believe other manufactures do. This is ea...
