waste ink tank level not resetting

Hello all, I've had a little mishap with the waste tank on my BN-20. I have been having trouble with my magenta not printing correctly so have been doing lots of cleans (to no avail) but I took my eye off the ball and the waste ink tank overflowed. I have now emptied the tank and mopped up but the B...

Re: Coating on First aid case?

I purposely left them to gas off for a minimum of 3/4 days before laminating and I delivered the job a few days after laminating & cutting. I have tested a couple of overs on a first aid kit box I have here, I can see what he means but I've asked him to give the box a good clean with Iso before appl...

Re: Coating on First aid case?

Hello I'm back with this one I'm afraid. I did think I had managed to solve the problem by laminating then cutting the labels which, when I did some samples it seemed to stop the curling (I had tried the High tak and that didn't seem to make any diffference). Seeing as the samples worked OK I re-ran...

Re: Coating on First aid case?

Apologies for not replying, cleaning the box does make a big difference but the customer says they don't want to have to clean each time just to put on a sticker. The material I used was Metamark's MD5 which is a good material as far as I know, is there a better material with even less chance of cur...

Coating on First aid case?

Can anyone tell me if there is some sort of coating on a first aid case, the plastic small suitcase type? I've printed some labels onto various vinyls including extra stick and they seem to be curling and peeling off. They have got a background which bleeds off and I am aware that I need to gas off ...

Re: Using A4 sheets on a BN-20

I've tried gafityp's self adhesive waterproof paper and unfortunately it doesn't suit as it doesn't tear like paper, my customers are after jam jar labels that go over the lid and tear when you open the jar. Also the backing sheet on that is so thin I cant get a consistent contour cut without it cut...

Re: Using A4 sheets on a BN-20

Ahh, that's a pain, lots of customers want paper stickers rather than vinyl and a self adhesive paper for the BN-20 is really expensive. I've found that inkjet paper works really well but I can only buy that in 250m rolls (for use on magjet type printers) or as sheets. If I can only make use of part...

Re: Using A4 sheets on a BN-20

I have used the centre on media but the sheet seems to feed through automatically so the head starts to print about a third of the way down?

Using A4 sheets on a BN-20

This may be a really stupid question but how do I get my BN-20 to print in the centre of an A4 sheet? I have specified A4 as the size in versaworks and loaded the sheet so it just reaches the media guides but it seems to print in the wrong position.

Re: Laminating options

Thanks Martin, I'm actually just using the clear version of the white vinyl I'm printing on so that shouldn't be an issue.
