14-lb bond to 34-lb bond
Important!:
• Be sure to load printing paper larger than the images to be created. If printing paper is smaller than the images, the
inner rollers may be stained and it may result in smudges on the prints.
• Be sure to confirm the maximum printing area and margins before printing ()p.12).
• Even when using paper whose sizes and weights are supported by the machine, it may not pass through the
machine depending on such factors as paper finish, ambient conditions, and storage conditions. Keep this in mind
when using the machine. For more information, consult your dealer.
Do not use the following types of paper, as they can cause jams or misfeeds:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Extremely thin paper (less than 50 g/m2 (14-lb bond))
Extremely thick or heavy paper (greater than 128 g/m2 (34-lb bond))
Wrinkled, curled, folded, or torn papers
Chemically treated paper (such as thermal or carbon paper)
Paper coated on its face or back surface
Paper having a sticky section or holes (such as an envelop and label paper)
Note:
• Paper with a horizontal grain direction can cause problems with paper feeding. Use paper with a vertical grain
direction.
• Images are not output onto the entire area of usable print paper.
If paper with a size exceeding the limit of specifications is used, the paper feeding and print quality on such paper are
not warranted.
10 Paper Recommendations
KZ30_UG.book Page 11 Monday, December 21, 2009 11:11 AM
Before Starting to Use
Tips for Better Paper Feeding
To prevent paper jams and misfeeds, follow the directions below:
• Set the Paper Feed Pressure Adjustment Lever to the position according to the thickness of the printing paper.
()p.20)
Standard paper: Standard position 1 (
1), Standard position 2 (
2)
Thin paper: Thin paper (
)
Thick paper (such as card stock): Thick paper (
)
• Adjust the position of the Paper Jump Wing according to the size of the printing paper. ()p.22)
• Always set the Feed Tray Paper Guide and the Receiving Tray Paper Guide according to the print paper
size.()p.20)
• Use flat printing paper that is free of folds. If the use of curled paper is unavoidable, place the printing paper so that
the curl faces down.
• Paper may stick to the Print Drum (Cylinder) surface if the top margin is too narrow on the original or if the upper
portion of the original uses a large amount of ink. To solve this problem, lower the print position to provide a wider
top margin or reverse the top and bottom of the original. Restart master making and printing from the beginning
when you rotate the original.
Storing Environment
Store printing paper in a level, dry area. Storing the paper in an excessively humid area can result in paper jams or
poor print quality.
After unpacking the printing paper, keep the remaining paper wrapped and store it in a moisture-proof box. It is highly
recommended to put silica gel in the paper storage box.
Paper Recommendations 11

Before Starting to Use
Basic Process
The machine presents the following two basic operational processes:
• Master-making process: to make a master by scanning an original (Master-Making mode)
• Printing process: to actually print the master data on paper (Printing mode)
‹ Process for printing from a paper document
A placed original is scanned by the scanner, and a generated master is rolled around the Print Drum (Cylinder).
After a while, sample copy is performed. After checking the print result, enter the number of pages to be printed
and start printing.
‹ Process for printing with data generated using a computer
Data sent from a computer is transformed into images, and a generated master is rolled around the Print Drum
(Cylinder).
You can send instructions for printing from the computer (through the printer driver).
Important!:
• The interface option is required for connection with a computer. )p.9
