Third Party Ink works beautifully on Flexi but not VersaWorks

Post by abcd1234 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 8:44 pm

When i run the OEM ink through our Truevis printer, it prints perfectly in both softwares but when i try using a third party ink it works perfectly with Flexi and not with Versa.

Has anyone else had a similar problem. Its as if its banding and being starved at the same time.

What type of ink are you using?

The profiles in VersaWorks have the ink limits set for ther OEM ink but these settings may be incorrect for other ink types, have you got profiles for the other ink?

I tried adjusting the ink limits of the third party ink but im still seeing excessive overspraying at speeds above 900meters/sec on versa, at 800m/s or less it works perfectly.

Again this issue doesnt happen in Flexi

What head speed/mode/pass rate is flexi using?

I would contact the ink supplier to see if they offer any profiles for their ink.

Using the exact same head speed and parameters on both programs. Its really weird to be honest.

Which version of VersaWorks are you running and are you using the generic or a profile for a specific media?
