I print wallcoverings and I am struggling with cutting and finishing due to the print moving side to side constantly by sometime 5mm over say 3-5 m of material. Is there something wrong with the way I'm setting my jobs up or is there a way to deal with this issue.
Any help would really be appreciated!
There are 3 points to take into account in order to solve this type of issue:
Make sure roll paper is not already telescoping condition when you want to load it.
Hubs, must to be settle down firmly and not moving when printer is working.
I suggest settling a low level of skew when customer load paper.
Thanks for the reply, I have done all three of those points and set the skew to 1mm and i still experience the same problem. Is this a common problem or do you think maybe it's down the material I am using? I have been trying to resolve this problem for months now and I cant seem to get anywhere with it, I know other companies do use Latex 365 printers to print wallpaper, I would love to know how they deal with it.
I am sorry but we cannot help here.
I suggest to contact HP Support, a technical service has to check the problem.
Do you know where I can download the Straightness Optimization plot for HP Latex 365?
What material are you using for the wallpaper? For some self-adhesive options, we were using PhotoTex OPA and was dealing with some major skewing and sizing problems with it so I switched over to RadGrafix by Grimco and set up a tiling profile for it and that has helped tremendously. I was no longer getting any major shifting in the material and all of the panels were line up correctly.
