(2) ●Safety Precautions
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Continued)
Installation Environment of Printer
WARNING
● Ensure that there is no flame- or arc-generating device around the
printer.
The ink and makeup are both flammable and may cause fire.
Fire can be generated by matches, lighters, cigarettes, heaters, stoves, gas
burners, welders, grinders and static electricity. Arcs may be generated from
open-type relays, switches, and brush motors. Before handling the ink and
makeup, remove static electricity from your body, peripheral equipment, and so
on. In the interest of safety, position a dry-chemical fire extinguisher near the
printer.
● Since the ink and makeup contain organic solvents, install the printer at
an adequately ventilated location.
1 Never install the printer in an enclosed space.
2 Connect exhaust equipment to the printer in order to prevent it from filling
with organic solvent vapor.
3 Secure adequate space for the ink/makeup handling area and printer
installation site. At least 200 m must be provided per print head.
Ensure that adequate ventilation is provided.
CAUTION
● If extraneous noise enters the printer, it may malfunction or break down.
For maximum noise immunity, observe the following installation and wiring
precautions.
1 Ensure that 100 to 120 VAC or 200 to 240 VAC power cables are not
bundled with other power supply cables.
2 Insulate the printer main body and print head so that they do not come into
direct contact with the conveyor or other devices.
3 If the employed print target detector is housed in a metal case, use a plastic
mounting brace for the purpose of insulating the detector from the conveyor
and other devices.
4 Be sure that the print target detector wiring is not bundled together with other
power supply cables.
●Safety Precautions (3)
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Continued)
Grounding
WARNING
● Ensure that all electrical wiring, connections and grounding comply with
applicable cords. Properly connect the printer to its dedicated ground.
Complete the above procedure to avoid electrical shock hazards.
● When welding, keep enough space between the IJ printer and the
welding work area to prevent the arc from starting a fire. Also, be sure to
insulate the printhead and IJ printer frame to keep the welding current
from flowing to the control section of the printer, and to make a separate
ground connection for the printer.
● If you wish to receive ink particles in a beaker, for a printing test for
example, use an electrically conductive beaker and connect the beaker
securely to the ground.
Do not let the tip of the printing head enter the beaker.
Ink particles used for printing are electrically charged. An ungrounded beaker
has a gradually rising charge, possibly catching on or causing a fire.
Cable Handling
WARNING
● Use an AC voltage of 100 to120 V or 200 to 240 V ±10% only and a
power frequency of 50 or 60 Hz only.
If the above requirements are not met, the electric parts may overheat and
burn, creating a risk of fire or electric shock.
(4) ●Safety Precautions
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Continued)
Ink and Makeup Handling
WARNING
● When charging a refill of ink or makeup, exchanging ink, or otherwise
handling ink or makeup, take enough care not to spill ink or makeup.
If you spill any ink or makeup by mistake, wipe it off neatly and promptly with
wiping paper or something similar. Do not close the maintenance cover until
you make sure that the portion you have just wiped is completely dry.
You must pay particular attention when you have spilled ink or makeup inside
the printer and it is not completely dry. Why? Because vapors of ink or
makeup will stay inside the printer and may catch on or cause a fire.
If you find it hard to wipe the printer when it is turned on, stop it with the maintenance
cover open. Power it down, and then wipe it off again.
● If you wish to clean the casing of the printer with wiping paper impregnated
with makeup, be sure to do so with the power off.
Attempting to clean it when the power is on will cause makeup or vapors of makeup
to enter the printer, possibly catching on or causing a fire.
When the cleaning is over, open the maintenance cover and make sure that no
makeup has entered and no vapors remain inside.
● Should you find a leak of ink or makeup inside the printer while the printer is
running or being maintained, wipe it off promptly with wiping paper or
something similar. Then, with the maintenance cover open, stop the printer,
power it down, and repair the leak.
Continuing operation with a leak of ink or makeup will cause an anomaly,
resulting in abnormal printing.
Ink and makeup are flammable. They may therefore catch on or cause a fire.
● The ink and makeup, their waste solution, used wiping papers and empty
containers are flammable. Waste disposal must comply with appropriate
regulations. Consult the appropriate regulatory agency for further information.
CAUTION
● Since the ink and makeup contain organic solvents, observe the following
handling precautions.
1 When handling the ink or makeup, wear protective gloves and safety goggles to
avoid direct skin contact. If the ink or makeup comes into contact with skin, wash
thoroughly with soap and warm or cold water.
2 When transferring the ink or makeup to or from a bottle, exercise caution to
prevent it coming into contact with the printer or surrounding articles.
If there is any spillage, immediately wipe it clean using a cloth moistened with
makeup.
● Ink and makeup must be stored as flammable liquids. Storage must comply
with local regulatory requirements. Consult the appropriate regulatory
agency for further information.
●Safety Precautions (5)
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Continued)
Main Body Handling
WARNING
● Do not insert tweezers, a screwdriver, or any other metal article into the ink
ejection hole in the end of the print head.

the deflection electrode section in the print head.
Exercise caution to avoid electric shock, injury, and fire.
● Do not remove covers and/or screws which are not specified on this manual.
A high voltage is applied to some sections of the printer.
Exercise caution to avoid electric shock and injury.
● Exercise caution to avoid inadvertently disconnecting, forcibly pulling, or
bending piping tubes.
Since the ink and makeup in some portions of piping tubes are pressurized, they
may splash into your eyes or mouth or onto your hands or clothing.
If any ink or makeup enters your eyes or mouth, immediately flush with warm or cold
water and consult a physician.
● While the printer is operating, do not look into the ink ejection hole in the end
of the print head.
Ink or makeup may enter your eyes or mouth or soil your hands or clothing.
If any ink or makeup enters your eyes or mouth, immediately flush with warm or cold
water and consult a physician.
● When ejecting the ink, do it after confirming that there is no one in the ejection
direction.
(Operate with the end of the print head inserted in a beaker, etc.)
● Before servicing the printer, be sure to stop the ink ejection.
Because ink or makeup may splash into your eyes or mouth or onto your hands or
clothing. If any ink or makeup enters your eyes or mouth, immediately flush with
warm or cold water and consult a physician.
● If an earthquake, fire, or other emergency occurs while the printer is engaged
in printing or just turned on, press the Main power switch to turn off the power.

2. USAGE PRECAUTIONS
2.1 Ink and makeup
(1) Ink and makeup replenishment
The printer employs an automatic ink/makeup replenishment system. While the printer is operated, the
ink reservoir automatically supplies the ink and the makeup reservoir automatically supplies the makeup
to the ink main tank at regular intervals. If the ink or makeup replenisher level is too low, an alarm is
issued. In this case, replenish the ink or makeup without delay.
(For the replenishment procedures, see Section 8.)
(2) Ink periodic replacement
For the replacement procedures, see “Technical Manual Chapter 6”.
●While the IJ printer ink circulates for operations, it reacts with the atmospheric air elements and
deteriorates with time. Therefore, it needs periodic replacement. The guide for determining the
replacement interval conforms to the handling guidance of each ink.
*What is makeup? :
The makeup serves as the replenisher that makes up for the constituent loss due to ink
evaporation during ink ejection. It is also used as a cleaning solution.
(3) When using the cartridge bottle makeup as the cleaning solution
1 Open the makeup cartridge bottle by turning its cap.
CAUTION
● Do not remove the over cap.

CAUTION
● If the cleaning solution is not available, pour the makeup of the makeup cartridge
bottle into the cleaning bottle before the makeup cartridge bottle is set.
● Tighten the cap of the makeup cartridge bottle after use.
Turn it upside down to check if there is No leakage of makeup.
● If the makeup in the makeup cartridge bottle is used as cleaning solution, the
content of makeup in the makeup cartridge bottle is reduced.
When it is set in the printer, please use the makeup cartridge bottle which contains
more than half of its content.
● In the makeup accidentally spilled, promptly wipe it up with the wiping paper.
●Ink and makeup 2-1
2.2 IJ printer long-term shutdown
When the IJ printer is shut down for a long time due to production or other circumstances, the ink may
accrete inside of the printer and cause such problems as inability to be ejected or to be recovered. When
this occurs, the following actions must be taken.
1 Prevent accretion by operating the printer periodically.
Operate (eject ink) the printer for 1 hour or longer at least once during the “Shutdown Period
Guideline” shown in the table below.
2 Perform long-term shutdown storage work.
Before storage, drain the ink from inside the printer and fill the printer with makeup.
When restarting operation after storage, drain the makeup from inside the printer and fill the printer
with ink.
Refer to Technical manual “6.16 Long-term Shutdown” for detail.

● The values in the table are for MEK based ink.
● Handling of ink other than the above requires special handling in accordance with the
handling guidance of each ink.
● To prevent adhesion, store the equipment at the lowest temperature possible.
● Please note the ink may harden within a week when it is stored in 45 C or higher.
CAUTION
Since “Perform long-term shutdown storage work” requires special work,
it is recommended to contact your local distributor and ask for the work.

2.3 Print head cleaning
Take the following precautions when cleaning ink from around the nozzle.
(1) Orient the end of the print head downward and pour makeup onto the dirty part and clean while
catching the makeup in a beaker.
Do not pour the makeup over this section.
Wipe the print head clean with wiping paper
dampened with the makeup.

Deflection electrode
Gutter
(2) After cleaning, thoroughly wipe the print head with wiping paper and allow it to dry.
●Thoroughly dry the nozzle, charge electrode, deflection electrode, mounting base and fringe of the gutter.
Confirm that the parts are sufficiently dry before starting the next operation.
If operated while wet, the printer will not start normally.
●While the print head is wet, do not orient its end upward.
(3) Never immerse the print head in the makeup.
(4)When printing is frequently performed or the distance between the print material and the print head is short,
ink splashes may stain the end of the print head and the print head cover. If this condition is left unresolved, the
stained status will be made worse, resulting in a print error or emergency stop. If a print error or emergency
stop frequently occurs because of stain due to ink splashes, stop the operation in progress and clean the end of
the print head (around the nozzle, charge electrode, deflection electrode, mounting base and gutter) and the
print head cover. Do this in addition to the cleaning to be performed at the end of each day’s work.
Air purging of the print head is effective against staining due to ink splashing.
See the Technical Manual “3.1 Print head air purge”.
●Print head cleaning 2-3
2.4 Shutdown (no-cleaning stop)
When you press the SHUTDOWN
→ OK at HOME screen, the printer stops after completing its automatic
nozzle cleaning sequence. If you repeatedly activate the SHUTDOWN
→ OK to stop an operation,
excessive makeup will enter the printer, thereby thinning the ink or producing an unduly high ink main tank
solution level. If it is absolutely necessary to repeatedly stop the printer operation, use the following procedure.
(For detail the HOME screen, refer to “Instruction Manual”.)
The no-cleaning stop procedure works even while the startup sequence is being executed.
(The SHUTDOWN
→ OK is inoperative during the startup sequence.)
*1: Do not use the SHUTDOWN
→ OK to stop operation more than two successive times.
*2: When operation was stopped using SHUTDOWN
→ No-cleaning stop , if left in that state, the
ink will become stuck in the nozzle and cause ink stream bending, nozzle clogging, and printing
disturbance. Apply makeup to the nozzle orifice to wash it within 30 minutes after a stop to cause the
ink to eject once again.

2.5 Cautions on operating time when printer is in service
(1) Cautions when printer is repeatedly stopped immediately after the start
of operation
If you repeatedly stop the printer immediately after the start of operation, automatic nozzle cleaning at shutdown
will cause the ink in the IJ printer to gradually become thinner. For stable operation of the IJ printer, operate the
printer for a given amount of time or more once started.( =in Ink eject status)
During the operation, the ink viscosity is adjusted automatically and returns to the initial value.
The required amount of operation time varies depending on the ambient temperature or ink types used.
Refer to the handling guidance of each ink for details.
(2) Caution when daily operating time is relatively long
The IJ printer emits an ink jet when printing, so the outside and inside of the print head cover will become dirty
with accumulated ink spillage during operation. To prevent printing defects due to this ink accumulation,
periodically check the head cover and clean it as required.
2.6 Heating of ink
(1) If the ambient temperature is under approximately 20 C, the ink is heated by a heating unit in the print head.
The startup processing time relative to when not operating becomes long.
When not operating: Approximately 1.5 minutes
When operating: Maximum approximately 10 minutes (The rise processing time changes depending on the
ambient temperature.)
(2) When a heating unit fault occurs, take care of the following items.
1 If a heating unit fault occurs, the messages “Ink Heating Unit too High”, “Ink Heating Unit Temperature
Sensor Fault”, or “Ink Heating Unit Over Current” are displayed and the IJ printer fault stops.
The IJ printer can be restarted by pressing the Reset or Close . However, the ink will not be heated even
if the temperature drops thereafter.
2 Once “do not perform ink heating” is set, the following message is always displayed whenever the power
is turned on thereafter. Cancel the message by pressing the Close and be sure to inform your nearest
local distributor.

3 If the printer is temporally operated in "do not perform ink heating" status, the operation of the printer
may become possible by resetting the excitation voltage.
Reset the excitation voltage according to Technical Manual “6.10 Excitation V Adjustment”.
●Cautions on operating time when printer is in service 2-5
2.7 Ink concentration control
(1) The ink is automatically controlled to maintain optimum concentration for printing.
(2)If an error occurs in the viscometer which is used to control ink concentration, take care of the following points:
1 There are three types of viscometer errors:
“Inside Temperature Sensor Fault”, “Viscometer Reading Instability”, and “Viscometer Reading Out of
Range”.
2 When a “Inside Temperature Sensor Fault” occurs, the unit will enter the fault stop state.
Re-start is possible by pressing the Close , but the setting will be changed to the state in which ink
concentration control based on the measured result using the viscometer is not performed thereafter.
Once the setting of automatic concentration control is released, every time the power is turned on, the
following message will appear. Cancel the message by pressing the Close and be sure to inform your
nearest local distributor.
CONFIRMATION
No Ink Concentration Control
×
No.200
The current settings have made ink concentration control

Solution Contact your local distributor.
Close
3 When “Viscosity Reading Instability” or “Viscosity Readings Out of Range” occurs, the unit will not
enter the fault stop state and printing can be continued. However, you should contact your nearest
local distributor for inspection.
2.8 Gutter cleaning
The IJ printer collects ink not used for printing from the gutter. At the same time, it sucks in atmospheric gas, dust,
and other matter from the air. If these substances are mixed with the ink in the gutter, undissolved
components in the ink or makeup may stick to the gutter. If the system is run for 24 consecutive hours without
automatic cleaning, these components will gradually accumulate in the gutter. This, together with the ink stream
coming into contact with it, may cause such errors as “an error stemming from a dirty head”.
1 Clean the gutter and its perimeters with makeup periodically.
2 Perform the procedures descibed in “6.6 Cleaning the Gutter” in Technical Manual, and claen the gutter and the
recovery route.
Should the solution above do not work, contact your nearest distributor.

4. INSTALLING PRECAUTIONS
WARNING
● Ensure that there is no flame- or arc-generating device around the printer.
The ink and makeup are both flammable and may cause fire.
Fire can be generated by matches, lighters, cigarettes, heaters, stoves, gas burners,
welders, grinders and static electricity. Arcs may be generated from open-type relays,
switches, and brush motors. Before handling the ink and makeup, remove static
electricity from your body, peripheral equipment, and so on. In the interest of safety,
position a dry-chemical fire extinguisher near the printer.
● Since the ink and makeup contain organic solvents, install the printer at an
adequately ventilated location.
1 Never install the printer in an enclosed space.
2 Connect exhaust equipment to the printer in order to prevent it from filling with
organic solvent vapor.
CAUTION
● The employed ink and makeup contain organic solvents. Furnish an
adequate space for the ink/makeup handling area and printer
installation site. A space of at least 200 m3 must be provided per print head.
Ensure that adequate ventilation is provided. Follow all regulation in your
country.

(11) If you fixed the print head, ensure that the minimum bend radius of the print head cable is at least 150 mm.
Handle the headcable with care when wiring it.
If the minimum bend radius is less than 150mm, the tubes and wires inside the headcable might be broken.
(12) The ink stream may bend for some reason or other (due, for instance, to dirt).
The facilities positioned in the direction of ink ejection should be partially covered as needed to avoid ink
accumulation.
(13) When connecting an exhaust duct to the printer, install a damper and adjust the wind velocity at the intake
port to 0.3 to 0.5 m/s. (Use an anemometer for verification. If the wind velocity is too high, the makeup
consumption increases.)
Connect a duct to this port
(50 mm in diameter).
Exhaust duct

(14) If you try to fix the print head with a magnetic substance (such as iron), the cover switch will
malfunction resulting in an "Cover Open" error.
This, you must only use nonmagnetic resins or metals for fixing the print head.
(15) In the case of carrying the printer proper, use the handles in the drawing below.
●Installing Precautions 4-3
5. INSTALLATION CHECK ITEMS
5.1 Print head air purge
If the makeup remains in the electrode section after cleaning or if you use the IJ
printer at a high humidity, moisture condensation may occur within the print head,
causing leakage from the deflection electrode section. It is also important to
remember that dust or splashed ink accumulation on the deflection electrode
section may cause leakage. Performing the following air purge procedure for the
print head interior is effective in preventing such leakage.
(1) Situations requiring an air purge
1 When the printer is used in a highly humid place such as a beer or other beverage can line
(If you use the printer in an environment in which the relative humidity is 85% or higher,
complete the print head air-purge procedure).
2 When a water drainage blow sequence is performed before printing.
3 When the printer is used in a place where a considerable amount of paper powder or other dust
exists.
4 When the printing distance is short so that the end of the print head is splashed with ink.
5 When you use inks that are indicated on the handling guidance of each ink to complete
air-purge procedure.
(2) Air-purging procedure
Introduce clean dry air into the print head air purge connection port (Rc 1/8 (PT 1/8)×screw) in
the rear of the printer main body at a pressure of about 0.1 to 0.3 MPa. If it is possible that the
employed air tanks oil or water, turn it into clean dry air with an air filter, micro-mist separator, or
the like before introducing it into the printer main body.

6. ELECTRIC SIGNAL CONNECTION
6.1 Wiring precautions
(1)If noise enters the IJ printer from the outside, there is the danger of erroneous operation or trouble.
To improve noise resistance, perform wiring work as follows:
1 Separate the power cable to the IJ printer from other power lines for powering use (especially, power
line for a speed control inverter, etc.).
Wiring the power cable through a separate duct is even better.
2 Do not bundle input/output (I/O) signal wiring together with other power lines. Wire them
independently instead.
3 Electrically isolate the print target detector, print head, stand, and IJ printer body from other
machinery and equipment (conveyor, etc.).
4 Separate the print target detector wiring from other power lines.
5 Perform that all electrical wiring, connections and grounding comply with applicable cords.
(When erroneous operation was caused by noise, etc., use a dedicated ground.)

(2) Connection to power supply
Use a suitable plug and always connect the power source to a protective ground. In addition, arrange the
receptacles near the IJ printer so that removal is easy.
●Wiring precautions 6-1
(3) Precautions related to welding current of welder
Signal (weak electric) ground and frame ground are connected because the ink drops of the IJ printer
are electrically charged.
Nozzle Ink column Charge electrode
+++
+++
The ink drops are electrically charged by impressing a voltage between the charging electrode and ink column as
shown at the left.
Therefore, the ink always becomes signal ground.
In addition, since the ink is always connected to frame
ground by the clamp, etc. of the circulation path, separating
signal ground and frame ground is difficult.
Signal ground
Charge theory
Therefore, when a large current (for example, the welding current of a welder) flows from the
outside through frame ground, the current is also diverted to signal ground and the PC boards may
be damaged. For this reason, when performing welding work near the IJ printer, proceed as follows:
Method
Be sure to insulate the printhead and IJ printer frame to keep the welding current from flowing to
the control section of the printer, and to make a separate ground connection for the printer.
If this method is used, welding work becomes possible even while the IJ printer is operating.

Welding work cautions
WARNING
●Fire is strictly forbidden around the IJ printer
The ink and makeup are both flammable. Welding sparks may cause ignition or a fire.
Take measures so that sparks do not enter the surrounding area whether or not the IJ
printer is operating, and ventilate sufficiently.
Just in case, ensure safety by installing a powder type fire extinguisher nearby.

Handling the nozzle rubber seal
1. To prevent drying of the nozzle orifice and dust from sticking to the plate during unit storage,
the unit is shipped with a “nozzle rubber seal” installed. Remove this “nozzle rubber seal” at
installation and test running and adjustment.
Nozzle orifice
Nozzle rubber seal
Charge electrode
2. The “nozzle rubber seal” prevents drying of the nozzle orifice and dust from sticking to the
plate. When the IJ printer will not be used for several days over a holiday, etc., we
recommend that the “nozzle rubber seal” be installed between the nozzle orifice and charge
electrode at shutdown.
Usage precautions
1 Store the “nozzle rubber seal” in a plastic bag, etc., to protect it from dirt and dust.
2 Always install the “nozzle rubber seal” after cleaning it with makeup.
3 When installing the “nozzle rubber seal”, be careful not to deform the charge
electrode.
7.2.4 Careful Cleaning
(1) Overview
● This is the function to clean the printer carefully when IJ Printer is frequently used in high-temperature
environment, or before the weekend, such as 2-3 day shutdown period. This careful cleaning uses more
amount of makeup than the normal cleaning.
● Please note that precautions shall be fully understood when using this function, because with the
“Careful-Cleaning” function, IJP uses more amount of makeup than the normal Cleaning Stop.
(2) How to use Careful Cleaning function
● Please contact your nearest local distributor to use this function.

8. INK AND MAKEUP
REPLENISHMENT
WARNING
● Never pour the ink and makeup waste into a sewer, etc.
Have the ink and makeup drainage processed by an industrial waste processor as
special control industrial waste and used wiping papers and the empty container as
industrial waste.
● Do not remove, apply unreasonable force to, or bend the piping tubes unnecessarily.
Since high pressure is applied to parts of the ink and solvent inside the piping tube,
the ink and solvent may spurt out and get into your eyes and mouth or soil your
hands and clothing.
If the ink or solvent gets into your eyes or mouth, immediately rinse it out with warm
water and see a doctor.
● When replenishing the ink and makeup, changing the ink, or performing other work in
which the ink and makeup are handled, be sure not to spill the ink and makeup.
If the ink and makeup is accidentally spilled, quickly wipe it off with wiping paper, etc.
Do not close the maintenance cover until you verify that the wiped parts are
completely dry.
Since the ink and makeup vapor will collect inside the printer especially in the state in
which the ink and makeup was spilled inside the printer and was not wiped off
completely, it will cause ignition and fire.
When wiping is difficult in the energized state, perform shutdown processing with the
maintenance cover remaining open and turn off the power, then perform wiping
again.
● If leaking of the ink and makeup inside the printer was detected during printer
operation or maintenance, quickly wipe it with wiping paper, etc. and perform
shutdown processing with the maintenance cover remaining open and turn off the
power, then repair the leak.
If operation is continued when the ink and makeup is leaking, it will cause trouble
and prevent normal printing will become.
In addition, since the ink and makeup are combustible, they may cause a fire.
● The ink and makeup, their waste solution, used wiping papers and empty containers
are flammable. Waste disposal must comply with appropriate regulations.
Consult the appropriate regulatory agency for further information.
● When the ink particles are caught in a beaker during test printing, etc., use a
conductive beaker and securely connect the beaker to a ground.
In addition, be sure that the print head is not inserted into the beaker.
Since the ink particles used in printing are electrically charged, if the beaker is not
connected to a ground, the charge load will gradually increase and cause a fire.
CAUTION
● Pay careful attention to the following items regarding handling of the ink and makeup:
1 Wear gloves and goggles so that the ink and makeup will not directly contact your
skin.
If the ink or makeup gets on your skin, wash it off with soap and warm water.
2 When taking the bottle from the printer, be careful that the ink does not get on the
printer or surroundings. If the ink or makeup gets on the equipment or
surroundings, immediately wipe it off with makeup.
3 Since the vapor pressure of the makeup is generally high, if the ambient
temperature is high such as in the summer, etc., the internal pressure will rise and
makeup could spurt out when the outside cover is removed. Therefore, when
unplugging,
●do not hold the bottle near your face
●place the can on a level surface
●open while covering the opening with a rag, etc.
8-1 ●Ink and makeup replenishment

11. MAINTENANCE SERVICE
About maintenance service
If trouble or damage occurs within 1 year after delivery or accumulated operating time of 2400 hours, whichever
is sooner, repairs will be made free of charge. However, the following cases are outside the warranty even within
the free warranty period:
(1) When trouble was due to handling outside the instruction manual
(2) When materials and parts other than ours, including the ink, were used and damage was caused by them
(3) When repair was performed by other than us or our designated representative and damage was caused by
this
(4) When trouble was due to external causes (abnormal print material, etc.) other than this equipment or by
moving or transportation of the equipment after delivery
(5) When operated in a usage environment outside the specifications of par. “13. Specifications” of the
instruction manual.
(6) When damaged by fire, water, or other natural disaster
Loss of production due to down time and physical loss due to trouble or error of delivered equipment
(loss of print material, related facility, etc.) is outside the warranty. If trouble occurs, an engineer shall
be dispatched as quickly as possible and maximum efforts will be made so that the down time is as
short as possible.
If there is no danger of being misread, excessive or insufficient dot configuration shall be considered
allowable.
The IJ printer has an alarm function to prevent major printing faults before they happen, but this function does not inspect the quality of the printed characters.
Consideration shall be given so that the printed character state is visible at some process.
Parts retention period
The retention period of the performance parts for repair of this equipment is 7 years after discontinuation of
manufacture.
“Performance parts for repair” are parts necessary to maintain the functions of the product.
