Issues with Everyday Adhesive Matte Polypropylene

#1 FreshArtists 4 years ago

Hey all,

Working with a 60" L25500 and ErgoSoft PosterPrint 14. Firmware and software all up-to-date.

I cannot for the life of me get the Everyday Adhesive Matte Polypropylene to run on my printer. The issue I'm having is that the edges are curling in the printer and causing head crashes. This happens as the printer is warming up nd not even printing. I'm running the HP Media Solutions suggested settings and have spent a few hours tweeking the dry, cure, airflow, passes, vacumn, settings to try to get this all to work.

Here are the basic settings I started with.

I'm also a little worried that at temps this low my ink is not going to be durable on the media.

Load: HP Photorealistic

Print Mode: 10Pass Bidi

Ink Limit: 185% (I generally start here and build up)

Dry: 40C

Cure: 60C

Airflow: 30%

OMAS: Enabled

Tension: 15 N/m

Vaccum: 20 nnH20

WUDTO: 0C

WUCTO: -25C

CDDTO: 0C

CDCT0: 0C

Pmin: 0.0kW

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have a ton or rolls of this media and would really love to be able to use it.

Thanks,

Hi FreshArtists,

As long as I know there is not an specific profile in the Media Solutions Locator for the Ergosoft RIP and this type of media, but checking with the media experts, they've told me that the settings you are using are the correct ones.

They will like to know if this problem happens already in your fists job? This could be because if you left the media uploaded on the machine, they generate some curling in the leaning edge. Some medias are more sensible to this effect than others, and the Polypropylene is one of the most sensibles. They recommend you to unload the media once you're done.

Also, I will recommend you to use the Take Up Reel. This accessory will help you on reducing the media jams.

Another option is to try to increase the vacuum of the printer in order to keep the media more "attached" to the printer.

Finally, if nothing of these solutions work, I will recommend you to use the HP Media Holders, an accessory that will help you to keep the edges of the media in the right position (CR659A HP Designjet L25500 Edge Holder)

Resuming:

1- Unload the media after using it.

2- Use the Take Up Reel

3- Increase the vacuum.

4- Use the Media Edge Holders

i hope this helps
