  • Page 95 Chapter 1 2. Ink mist Since the printhead prints by squirting ink onto the media, a minute amount of ink mist is generated in the printing unit during printing. The ink mist is collected in the printer by the airflow. However, uncollected ink mist may stain the platen unit, carriage unit, main rail unit, external unit, or purge unit. These stains may soil the print media or hands and clothes when servicing the printer, wipe them off carefully with a soft, well-wrung damp cloth.

  • Page 121: Print Control

    Chapter 2 2.2.3 Print Control 0012-6312 iPF9000 1. Print modes Print methods, such as carriage and paper feed operation, are varied according to the media type, print quality, kind of print data and so forth to achieve high-quality high-speed print free from blurring and uneven density. Because each color prints in up to 16 passes according the print quality requirement for a print mode, uneven density problems caused by variations in the rate of discharge among different nozzles are eliminated.
  • Page 122 Chapter 2 according to the selected media type, print quality, print data and so on. Printing is performed for each color using a maximum of 16 paths in each print mode according to the selected print quality. This reduces density irregularities caused by the variation in the amounts of ink discharged from individual nozzles. In addition, it shifts the printing timing so that the current ink layer is nearly fixed before the next ink layer is applied, thus minimizing bleeding.
