    Chapter 1 1.7 Safety and Precautions 1.7.1 Safety Precautions 1.7.1.1 Moving Parts 0013-5092 Moving parts of the printer include the carriage unit driven by the carriage motor, the carriage belt, the ink tube, the flexible cable, the feed roller drives the feed motor, the pinch roller, and the purge unit driven by the purge motor.
  • Page 50 Chapter 1 - Although the ink is not harmful to the human body, it contains organic solvents. Ink may contaminate the surrounding parts. Carry out the work with due caution. If your hands are stained with ink, wash them with a plenty of water. Be careful not to allow the ink to get into your mouth or eyes.
  • Page 51: Electric Parts

    Chapter 1 1.7.1.3 Electric Parts 0019-6084 The electric parts of the printer are activated when the printer is connected to the AC power supply.

Capping The printer will perform the capping operation when printing has ended or during standby due to an error, in order to protect the printhead and avoid ink leakage. If the power cord is accidentally unplugged, turn off the Power button, reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the Power button.
  • Page 53: Handling The Printer

    Chapter 1 2. Handling the Ink Tank To prevent foreign matter from entering the ink flow path and causing ink suction and printing problems, never touch the ink port and contacts of the ink tank. When you press down the ink tank lock lever, the needle enters the ink port, allowing ink to flow between the printer and ink tank. Do not raise or lower the ink tank lock lever except when replacing the ink tank.
  • Page 54 Chapter 1 2. Fixing the Carriage After completion of printing, the carriage is mechanically locked by the lock arm in the purge unit at the same moment the printhead is capped. Before transporting the printer, secure the carriage at its home position using belt stoppers[1] so that the carriage does not become separated from the lock arm and damage or ink does not leak.
  • Page 55 Chapter 1 4. Contact of Linear Scale/Carriage Shaft Please do not touch a linear scale and the carriage shaft when the inside of the top cover is opened, and execute maintenance. When touching a linear scale and the carriage shaft, it might cause defective movement of the carriage and a defective print. F-1-34 [1] Linear Scale [2] Carriage Shaft...

    Chapter 2 2.1.3 Print Driving 0012-6491 Print and control signals are transferred via the carriage PCB to the printheads to discharge inks from the nozzle assembly at printing. Each printhead has 12 trains of nozzles arranged in a zigzag pattern. This printer uses one printhead.
  • Page 66 Chapter 2 2. Print drive timing Each printhead houses 12 trains of nozzles, which share the same data transfer clock (Hx-CLK) and data latch pulses (Hx-LT). Even-numbered nozzle data (Hx-x-DATA-x-EV), odd-numbered nozzle data (Hx-x-DATA-x-OD) and the Heat Enable (Hx-x-HE-x) signal are generated for each nozzle train and controlled individually.

    Chapter 2 2.2 Firmware 2.2.1 Operation Sequence at Power-on 0012-6493 Shown below is the flowchart of the initialization sequence from the moment the power is turned on to the moment the printer enters the online state. The time required for initialization is less than 1 minute*. * This time does not include the time required for supplying ink and cleaning which takes place after the printer has been left unused for an extended period of time.
  • Page 68: Operation Sequence At Power-off

    Chapter 2 2.2.2 Operation Sequence at Power-off 0012-6494 Turning off the power cuts off the voltage to all drive systems. At this time, the firmware starts the power-off sequence as shown below. This printer immediately suspends all operations in progress and stops whenever the power cord is unplugged or a cover such as the top cover is opened. In this case, the printer may stop without capping the print head.

The portion that touches the face plate is made from rubber. Two caps are arranged for the printhead (six arrays of nozzles) installed in the carriage.
  • Page 87 Chapter 2 b) Wiper unit The wiper unit operated by the purge motor wipes the print head face. The printer is provided with a pair of wiper blades for better wiping performance. The wiping operation is performed by a "slide wipe" method by which the purge motor rotates (in the normal direction) to slide the wiper blade via the wiper cam. It is performed by a constant-speed movement toward the front of the printer as viewed from the printer front.
