Both Sides Adjust
2.1
What is Both Sides Adjust?
When performing 2-sided printing, you need to correct the misalignment between the Front and Back sides
in order to align the printing positions of both sides. This operation is referred to as "both-sides adjustment".
The periodical both-side adjustment is required to help ensure stable both-side accuracy against a change
in machine conditions or a change in both-side accuracy that is caused depending on paper.
Understand the both-side adjustment flow (which timing, which both-side adjustment, in what order), and
then make adjustment as needed.
This machine provides the following three types of both-side adjustment flows:
Type of adjustment flow
Adjustment timing
Adjustment flow to use paper of a new brand,
weight, or size
When you use paper of a new brand, weight, or size
Regular adjustment flow
When you have changed paper (brand, weight, or
size) in a tray
Adjustment flow for each job
•
•
•
AccurioPress C6100/C6085
Just before a job with important both-side accuracy is output
Just before a job with a wide printing area is
output
When both-side accuracy is not desirable (you
want to increase both-side accuracy)

Periodical Both Sides Adjustment Function
Intelligent Quality Optimizer IQ-501 provides the [Periodical Both Sides Adjustment] function that automatically performs the periodical both-sides adjustment.
The [Periodical Both Sides Adjustment] function makes the both-sides adjustment each time the specified
number of sheets of data are printed.
The following chart is output, and it is read by Intelligent Quality Optimizer IQ-501 to correct an image misalignment.
When adjustment is completed, the job is restarted automatically, so you do not need to manually perform
job operations. The chart used for adjustment is output to a different tray from that used for a job.
The adjustment result is applied after data has been output onto a few to a dozen sheets following the chart.
If necessary, you can change the adjustment interval value or misalignment value depending on the machine
environment or other conditions.
For details, refer to page 2-42.
Tips
-
When using [Periodical Both Sides Adjustment], manually make the image quality adjustment.
The
mark is printed on the chart to enable you to know from which paper tray the target job is printed.

[Scan Meas.] Adjustment
Adjust the magnification ratio and print position of the back side with reference to the print position of the
front side. The magnification ratio and print position of the back side are automatically adjusted by using the
scanner function of this machine to measure the gap amount in printing position of the back side to the front
side. You do not need to measure the gap using a scale. This adjustment is available for all sizes of paper
applicable to this machine.
Print out 1 to 20 sheets of the adjustment chart having both front and back sides printed, and scan them
4 times per sheet. The average value of gap amounts in printing position of the back side to the front side,
which can be obtained by scanning up to 20 sheets of the adjustment chart, will be calculated in order to
adjust the magnification ratio and printing position of the back side.
Tips
-
A scanner is not mounted on a machine that is not equipped with Paper Feed Unit PF-711; therefore,
the [Scan Meas.] adjustment is not available to scan adjustment charts.
-
The [Scan Meas.] adjustment provides the coordination based on the average value of gap amounts,
taking into account the gap in printing position between the first and last sheets which can be produced
when multiple sheets are output.
-
Performing the [Scan Meas.] adjustment may require the readjustment of [Zoom]/[Image Shift] adjustment registered in a paper profile.

[AutoMeasure] Adjustment
This function scans both sides of adjustment charts printed out in [Print Mode] using Intelligent Quality Optimizer IQ-501, and automatically makes the both-side adjustment. After adjustment, each adjustment value
([Zoom], [Image Shift], and [Rotate/Skew]) on this screen is updated.
The magnification and print position of the adjustment chart printed on both sides are scanned using Intelligent Quality Optimizer IQ-501, and adjustment values are obtained automatically. When multiple adjustment charts are printed, adjustment values are obtained from the average, thereby, enabling highly accurate
adjustment to be carried out. Up to 20 adjustment charts can be printed out collectively.
The [AutoMeasure] adjustment is not available on a machine that is not equipped with Intelligent Quality Optimizer IQ-501.

Put the third output chart (with the back side facing upward) on the second one (with the front side facing upward), then compare the interval of the image on the front side with that of the image on the back
side. When you want to invert paper, set the rotation axis in the crosswise direction.
If the interval of the image on the front side is different from that of the image on the back side, enter
the adjustment value in [Vertical] (crosswise direction) and [Horizontal] (feed direction) on the [Back]

NOTICE
To activate this function, you need to ask a service engineer in advance to set up the desired maximum density
value (desired density). For details, contact your service representative.
Be sure to use the paper for registering a desired density to perform Max. Density Auto Adj.. With an unregistered paper, the adjustment cannot be performed correctly.
If you want to perform automatic adjustment using paper other than a registered paper, you need to register
a desired density again. For details, contact your service representative.
When this adjustment is conducted, proceed to the calibration with the Image controller.
Be sure to perform Color Density Manual Control after changing the maximum density.
Tips

About Exact Color calibration
In addition to the regular controller calibration, measure the accuracy and check the Gray Step (gray balance)
measurement result as necessary. Based on the color difference ΔE for gray color standard state in the color
space, execute the advanced controller calibration (Exact Color) wizard as necessary.
The following two methods are available to perform Exact Color.
-
Manual adjustment by using Color Centro
-
Automatic adjustment by using the touch panel
. Meaning and Purpose of Advanced Controller Calibration (Exact Color)
While the regular controller calibration adjusts the output density of gradation for each C, M, Y, and K colors,
the advanced controller calibration (Exact Color) adjusts mixed colors (mixture of 2 or 3 colors and gray balance) for enhanced color reproduction accuracy.
. When to perform
-
Any time (If the accuracy measurement result presented a greater ΔE value (color difference), etc. than
the preferred value)
. Precautions
-
To reproduce stable colors, make other image quality adjustments as necessary, such as when changing screens or papers or when hue is important. For details, refer to page 3-6, page 3-4, and page 3-3.
-
If the advanced controller calibration (Exact Color), page 3-6, page 3-4, or page 3-3 does not improve
color stability, creating a profile may resolve the problem.

About G7 Calibration
In addition to the regular controller calibration, measure the accuracy and check the Gray Step (gray balance)
measurement result as necessary. Based on the values for gray color standard state, execute the advanced
controller calibration (G7) as necessary.
The following two methods are available to perform G7 Calibration.
-
Manual adjustment by using Color Centro
-
Automatic adjustment by using the touch panel
. Meaning and Purpose of Advanced Controller Calibration
While the regular controller calibration adjusts the output density of C, M, Y, and K colors, the advanced controller calibration uses primary colors (C, M, Y, and K) as a one-dimensional curve and adjusts gray balance
for enhanced color reproduction accuracy.
Exact Color is the default setting in Color Centro. When Color Centro is set to Exact Color, G7 calibration
cannot be added and used side-by-side. When you want to change Exact Color to G7 calibration, contact
your service representative.
. When to perform
-
Any time (If the accuracy measurement result presented a greater ΔCh value (saturation difference), etc.
than the preferred value)
. Precautions
-
To reproduce stable colors, make other image quality adjustments as necessary, such as when changing screens or papers or when hue is important. For details, refer to page 3-6, page 3-4, and page 3-3.
-
If the advanced controller calibration (G7), page 3-6, page 3-4, or page 3-3 does not improve color stability, creating a profile may resolve the problem.
