  • Page 125: General Guidelines, Paper Availability, Paper Specifications

    General Guidelines General Guidelines The printer is designed to print on high-quality copier bond paper (the kind used in ordinary dry copier machines), but it can also accept a variety of other types of paper within the limits specified below. The manufacturer assumes no liability for problems that occur when paper not satisfying these requirements is used.

  • Page 126: Selecting The Right Paper

    General Guidelines Selecting the Right Paper Laser printing is a process involving laser light, electrostatic discharge, toner, and heat. In addition, as the paper passes through the printer it undergoes considerable sliding, bending, and twisting motions. A high- quality printing paper matching the printer’s requirements withstands all these stresses, enabling the printer to turn out clean, crisp printed copies consistently.

  • Page 127

    General Guidelines Paper Size Cassettes and an MP tray are available for the paper sizes listed in the table below. The dimensional tolerances are ±0.7 mm (±0.0276 inches) for the length and width. The angle at the corners must be 90° ±0.2°. Multi-purpose Size Cassette or...

  • Page 131: Adhesive-backed Labels

    Special Paper Adhesive-Backed Labels The basic rule for printing on adhesive labels is that the adhesive must never come into contact with any part of the printer. Adhesive paper sticking to the drum or rollers will damage the printer. Be sure to feed label paper from the MP tray. Feeding label paper from a paper cassette may cause printer failure.

    Special Paper The table below lists the specifications for adhesive label paper. Item Specification Weight of top sheet 44 to 74 g/m² (12 to 20 lb/ream) Composite weight 104 to 151 g/m² (28 to 40 lb/ream) Thickness of top sheet 0.086 to 0.107 mm (3.9 to 4.2 mils) Composite thickness 0.115 to 0.145 mm (4.5 to 5.7 mils)

  • Page 133

    Special Paper To avoid jamming due to curled envelopes, do not leave more than approximately 10 printed envelopes stacked in the paper trays during multiple envelope printing. Envelopes should be fed in the face-up position, right edge first. Thick Paper Fan the stack of paper and align the edges before loading them in the MP tray.

  • Page 134

    Special Paper Colored Paper Colored paper should satisfy the same conditions as white bond paper, listed in Paper Specifications on page 2-2. In addition, the pigments used in the paper must be able to withstand the heat of fusing during the printing process (up to 200 °C or 392 °F).

  • Page 135: Paper Type

    Paper Type Paper Type The printer is capable of printing under the optimum setting for the type of paper being used. Setting the paper type for the paper source from the printer’s operator panel will cause the printer to automatically select the paper source and print in the mode best suited to that type of paper.
