When the laminated card surface warps concave
The card surface tends to warp concave by laminating after printed single side by CX210. In that case, the Bend Remedy function
of CX210 is effective. See the instruction manual of CX210 to set the bend remedy mode, after consults with your dealer.
When laminating after printed by CX-120, also the card surface tends to warp concave. Please set the best setting values in the
combinations of set items of Laminator, because CX-120 has no bend remedy function.
When the laminated card surface warps convex
The card surface tends to warp convex by the case of the cards are hot, for example laminating after printed both side by CX210
or the environmental temperature is high, and especially using 1mil patch. In that case, set the Card Fan mode of CL-500 up to
more strengthen, after consults with your dealer. When print both side of the card by CX210, the Bend Remedy mode of CX210
should be set to OFF.
When laminating after printed by CX-120, also set the Card Fan mode of CL-500 up to more strengthen.
Note
Inferior quality of laminated cards such as bad transfer or bending are out of guarantee. Make a enough
test before deciding and using your cards on the consultation of your dealer.

Maintenance (continued)
Cleaning the cassette
If the cassette is ejected and inserted repeatedly, the shaft
of the cassette might rub against the front door causing
dregs to adhere. This is not a malfunction. However, this
may cause contact problem if the dregs adhere to the
contact surface. When changing the film, make sure that
no dregs adhere to the shaft. If dregs adhere to the shaft,
wipe it with a dry cloth. At the same time, perform similar
checking and cleaning on the insertion opening of the
cassette.
Shaft
Caution
Clean by cloth of thread dust free soak with dehydrated
ethanol in such a distant place that no dust affects the
laminator. When cleaning put the cassette on a flat table
as when mounting the film, to avoid dropping the
casstte or deformation of the shaft.
Once laminator servicing and
cleaning have been completed
Once servicing and cleaning of the printer have been
completed,check to make sure that all parts have been
replaced propely.
Improper replacement of parts may result in the power
not turning on or operating errors.
