Printing Corrugated Cardboard on R2000 - heat warping

#1 Cryptogamic 6 months ago

Hi, I have been tasked with producing some print-to-cut boxes using corrugated cardboard. I have attempted it on my R2000 and Scitex 700, and both printers caused the material to warp and crash the carriage. On the R2000 I turned down the drying to 120 and the curing to 149 and it still warped and crashed. I seriously doubt my bosses will want to pay for the edge holder kit, so I need to find a different solution. My main questions are these: is there a preferred brand of printable corrugated cardboard that ya'll would recommend (white faced cardboard) and/or do you have any recommended settings on the profile that I can test to avoid the heat warping? I am currently just attempting to print onto 4x8 sheets from Uline, so I doubt I'm using a substrate that is meant to be printed on. Any advice on substrate brands or profile settings would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi @Cryptogamic,

Please see attached an image of the corrugated carton with white coated suitable for R-series, on media locator you can find the manufacturer and also the oms to print them.

Even with this, it's possible that due to transportation or storage conditions the material can be deformed, it's possible that you need the media edge holders even with these brands.
