3.2.2 Using the media core braces.
Media core braces are developed to prevent the media cores to bend while printing. This could cause bad print
quality or paper slant.
From the moment the core is larger than 2050 mm, we recommend installing the brace. Do NOT install the
brace when the core is smaller than 2050 mm.
In the packaging box of the machine you will find two cores and two media core braces. There are already 3
spacers installed per brace with an outer diameter of 74 mm. In box 3/4 there are 6 spacers of 76 mm.
Please follow the instructions below to install and use the braces correctly.
Step 1 :
First check which spacer fits the best in the used core. If this one is not installed yet, remove the
installed one with a Hexagon Wrench 2 mm (in box 2/4) and install the correct one as shown below.
There is already a hole in the core in which the locking screw fits.
Step 2 :
Push the brace in the core. (Picture 1).
Be sure that the distance X is the same as Y (picture 2) and at least 75 mm.

5 PREPARATIONS BEFORE PRINTING
5.1 USING MEDIA
5.1.1 Media type
The type and quality of the media effects the printing results. Understand the description below and use the
appropriate media for your purpose.
•
•
•
•
Notes
For more information about the recommended media, contact your local MUTOH dealer.
Problems that occur due to use of non-recommended media are not guaranteed.
Notes
When using the recommended media, the setting values for the printing quality are set for each media
type.
When printing on media other than those specified, information regarding proper settings for the
media type and settings for the product can be found on the instructions for the media, or contact the
retailer of the media.
5.1.2 Cautions on handling media
•
Use the recommended media in an appropriate environment.
Be sure to read and understand the safety warnings before handling the printer.
Following are the temperature and humidity ranges appropriate for printing.
•
Do not use any of the following media.
o Media with crease, scar, tear, twist or media which tends to curl
o Welded media
•
The size of the recommended media can change at a fixed ratio according to the temperature changes of
the working environment. Before using the media, place the media in the working environment for at least
30 minutes, to have it match the temperature of the working area.
Printing before media is adjusted to the printing environment may cause media jams due to slippage or
creases. This also adversely affects the quality of printing.
•
•
Media has a printable side and a non-printable side. If you print on a non printable side, blurring or slight
touching may occur.
•
Do not touch the printable side of media. Moisture and/or oil from hands affect(s) the printing quality.
•
Do not leave the printer for a long time with media loaded. The media may curl resulting in misalignment of
media, media jams, or decreased printing quality. In practice, avoid this in winter, dry seasons, or during
final printing.
•
Do not lose the box or rapping bag for storing media.

Unused roll media must be removed from the scroller, rewound tightly, and stored in the original
wrapping bag and the box.
•
Do not wet media.
5.1.4 The printing area
Printing areas of each media with the printer are as shown below.
•
•
•
•
•
Notes
Printing margin C of the media feed direction is preset at the factory to 0mm as the initial value. To
change printing margin C, reset it by following the steps in "Menu setup on the operation panel".
Set the continuous printing item to "ON".
Refer to: “Joint printing menu”
Change the value in the continuous margin item.
Refer to: “Joint margin menu”
Printing margin A of the media feed direction becomes 0 mm automatically for following cases.

5.2 HEAD CLEANING BEFORE PRINTING
Be sure to read and understand the safety warnings before handling the printer.
When used?
Before printing, perform purge and head cleaning to clean the print head surfaces and the nozzles.
Procedure:
The procedure consists of 2 parts.
5.2.1 Perform a purge

5.3 SET THE CORRECT DISTANCE ADJUST (STEP)
Be sure to read and understand the safety warnings before handling the printer.
Obtaining constant printing quality on an Osprey is not only determined by the working environment, the RIP,
the profiles, the inks and the media which are used. One of the key factors for obtaining constant output quality
is the correct distance adjustment, also called step.
5.3.1 Basics about the step
Every image is printed in several print passes. After every pass, the media is fed an amount of millimetres.
When the step is not set correctly the passes will overlap each other or will not be printed precisely next to each
other which results in white bands between two print passes.
Therefore a function, distance adjust (or step), is added to the menu to control this feed operation.
Refer to the table below for visual support.
The passes overlap each other
►Step between the print passes is too small
The passes are printed too far from each other
►Step between the print passes is too large
Procedure:
•
Notes
It is recommended to start printing with a step of 100.00% and to adjust it afterwards. Once a step is
set for a particular media it will not change on following conditions:
o The step is only applicable on the printer in question and not interchangeable.
o The media manufacturer does not change any specifications of the media.
Step 1:
•
•
Go to the ‘Media feed compensation’ menu on the operation panel by following "Menu setup on the
operation panel". See image below.
The ‘Media feed compensation’ menu is named ‘DistAdj.’ menu on the operation panel.
Refer to: “Printing by Media feed compensation menu” for more details about all the functions in the ‘Media
feed compensation’ menu.
