Mimaki, Roland and HP Latex Hardware Safe Shutdown
Be safe in the knowledge that your printer will be back up and running asap after an extended break
If you’re closing down for an extended but well deserved break, it is important to shut down your Mimaki, Roland and HP Latex hardware correctly. At YPS we are keen to ensure that your Mimaki, Roland and HP Latex hardware is correctly prepared, in order to avoid any technical issues upon returning to work.
Please see the below safe shutdown information, and for any further enquiries please get in touch with our technical department on: 0191 256 6889 or firstname.lastname@example.org
It is also advised to turn off any heaters (if available on machine), because they are unnecessary and could turn into a hazard without appropriate supervision
If using White and it’s been over 2 weeks, perform white maintenance level 1.
For all machines using white, perform white maintenance upon restart if machine has been off for more than two weeks.
For all Mimaki UV LED machines including UCJV: Temperatures need to be maintained in order for your Mimaki printer to be able to complete maintenance cleans in power off mode. Please ensure temperatures do not drop below 15c whilst on your break.
When returning to work, run through the following steps to get your printer back up and running asap.
Perform nozzle test print to ensure no cleans are needed.
If using white ink, perform white maintenance upon restart if machine has been switched off for more than two weeks.
If using white in your Roland, the cartridge should be shaken before leaving for your break. Whilst the printer is turned on, remove the cartridge and tip back and forth several times and put back in. You can then leave the machine switched off on the front panel with the main power switch left on.
Upon your return, the white or metallic cartridges should be gently shaken. Perform a nozzle text print and clean if necessary.
Simply turn off your HP Latex Printer (115, 300 and 500 series) on your last day of work and turn it back on when you return. Easy!
