BN 20 metallic ink

Post by winktype » Fri Nov 03, 2017 8:36 am

Hello all,
I've been the proud owner of a BN 20 6 years now and am currently on my second machine. From time to time, I print onto clear vinyl using the metallic silver as a base with the colours on top (Mt>CMYK(v). All has worked extremely well until this week, when I used the same process but the metallic refused to become a stand alone background. On printing, the metallic appears to go down first as expected, but when I look at the end result, the colours appear to have merged. I have done a nozzle test and to my untrained eye all looks perfect with no gaps or other problems. My only concern is possibly that the colours shown go Metallic silver/yellow/cyan/black/black/cyan/yellow/magenta. Is there a reason why only 1 strip of metallic and magenta are printed on the nozzle test?

Hope you can help with this.

Thanks,

Rob

Solved (but no idea how!) Went back to this for another try and all printed as it should be. I used all the same settings and artwork. Confused but happy all is back to normal.
