Re: CUTTING STRIP - advice

To clean the cutter protection strip channel, use a cleaning swab, with some water dispersing spray or glue remover, this should break down any glue and then be ready for the replacement strip.

VersaWorks Weekly Tip - Variable Data

This is a great feature which can save you a lot of design time. If you have a job which has the same design but different elements such as text or images, then you may be able to produce just one template and use this feature.

Re: cleaning ink use

Hi all,

The cleaning only runs on the machine if you do not print anything within a 24 hour period, the total amount of ink used is 0.9cc.

The amount of ink used is taken from the whole head, not individual colours.
