Cautions:
IJ Avoid using the following kinds of paper:
= Roughly-cut paper
= paper of dmerent thicknesses in the same stack
= Buckled or curled paper
- Short grained paper
e paper of low stiffness
= Dusty paper
IJ Correct curls in the paper before setting it in the machine. When ou cannot correct
the paper curl, stack the paper with the curl face down. Othemise t x e paper may wrap
around the drum or stares may appear.
D Store paper where it will not curl or absorb moisture. Use paper smn

Cl Avoid using the top and bottom sheets of a new paper pack to prevent paper misfeeds
(multiple feeding).
Cl When thick paper is used, the paper tends not to be delivered properly if it is curled

OPERATION NOTES
Cl Make sure to make a few trial prints to check the image position because the image position
of the trial print may not correspond with that of the original.
13The leading edge of the prints may become stained if the edge touches the image of the
prints on the paper delivery table.
ClWhen performing duplex printin , do not touch the printed paper for a while in order to let
the ink on the printed paper dry. 7f this is not done, feed roller marks will appear on the print
image.
CJIf the machine is not used for a long period, image density might decrease if the ink on the
drum dries. Make extra prints until the image density recovers.
D If the machine is not used for a long period, the master may not be e“ected automatically
because ink on the drum dries. In this case, remove the master aroun d the drum manually.
~ The ink of the print on the paper delivery table might stick to the back side of the next print.
~ Press the Proof key to make a test print, because the first few prints maybe light. Especially
in low temperature, you should make a few more test prints.
~ As various kinds and qualities of paper exist, some paper might wrap around the drum or
cause misfeeds.
Cl The ima e density varies according to the printing speed and the room temperature. In this
case, a 3Just the printing speed or increase the room temperature.
D Depending on the paper size or image osition, adjust the paper delivery rollers. When you
use normal originals, leave 5 mm, 1/ { “ margins on the right and left sides of the paper.
When you use dark originals, leave about 10 mm, 2/5” margins on both sides.
