Calibration Procedure
•
The GK420 is equipped with a standard auto-calibration
feature that can be set to initiate automatically during
start-up of the printer - utilizing two to four labels to
calibrate for efficient operation and less waste. The
printer will also save the new settings in memory until the
next calibration is performed.
A manual calibration procedure can also be performed, if
required. Consult your User’s Guide for more details on
the specific manual calibration steps.
