Safety Precautions
CAUTIONS and NOTES
Warning
Protection of media from dust
Warning
Handling of ink bottles
• Use the UJV55-320 genuine ink. Remember that the user shall
be filled for a repair to correct any damage resulting from the
use of ink other than the exclusive type.
• The machine does not operate with any ink other than the
UJV55-320 genuine ink.
• Do not use the UJV55-320 genuine ink with other printers, as
doing so may cause damage to such machines.
• Never refill the ink bottle with ink. Refilled ink bottle can cause a
trouble. Remember that MIMAKI assumes no responsibility for
any damage caused by the use of the ink bottle replenished with
ink.
• If the ink bottle is moved from a cold place to a warm place,
leave it in the room temperature for three hours or more before
using it.
• Open the ink bottle just before using it. If it is opened and left for
an extended period of time, normal printing performance of the
machine may not be ensured.
• Make sure to store ink bottles in a cool and dark place.
• Store ink bottles and waste ink tank in a place that is out of the
reach of children.
• Be sure to thoroughly consume the ink in the ink bottle, once it
is opened, within three months. If an extended period of time
has passed away after opening the ink bottle, printing quality
would be poor.
• Neither pound the ink bottle nor shake it violently, as doing so
can cause leakage of ink.
• Do not touch or stain the contacts of the IC chip, as doing so
may cause damage to the print circuit board.
• Waste ink is equivalent to waste oil of industrial waste. Request
an industrial waste disposal company for disposal of waste ink.
• Do not discard to natural water systems (river, lake, etc.) and
domestic sewages (toilet, washstand, road, etc.).
Front cover and lever
• Never open the front cover or raise the lever during printing.
Handling of media
• Use media recommended by MIMAKI to ensure reliable, highquality printing.
• Set the temperature of the Pre-heater according to the type and
characteristics of the media used. Automatic temperature
setting can be made on the operation panel by setting the profile
on the dedicated RIP. For setting on the RIP, refer to the
instruction manual for your RIP.
• Pay attention to the expansion and contraction of the media.
Do not use media immediately after unpacking. The media can
be affected by the room temperature and humidity, and thus it
may expand and contract.The media have to be left in the
atmosphere in which they are to be used for 30 minutes or more
after unpacked.
• Do not use curled media.
The use of curled media can not only cause a media jam but
also affect print quality.
Straighten the sheet of media, if significantly curled, before
using it for printing. If a regular-sized coated sheet of media is
rolled and stored, the coated side has to face outside.
• Do not leave the media with the heater ON for a long time.
ix
• Store media in a bag. Wiping off dust accumulated on media will
adversely affect the media due to static electricity.
• When leaving the workshop after the working hours, do not
leave any media on the roll hanger. If any media is left on the roll
hanger, it can get dusty.
Notes on maintenance
• It is strongly recommended to use the machine in a room that is
not dusty.
• Keep the front cover closed even when the machine is not
printing. If not, dust can accumulate on the nozzles in the
heads.
• Dust in the heads can also cause drops of ink to fall suddenly
down on the media during printing. In such a case, be sure to
clean up the heads.
• When cleaning the ink-station or the heads, make sure to wear
the attached gloves.
• Perform wiping (removal of dust and paper powder) of the
capping station and wiper frequently.
Periodic replacement parts
• Some parts of this machine must be replaced with a new one
periodically by service personnel. Be sure to make a contract
with your distributor or dealer for After sale service to ensure a
long life of your machine.
Disposition of this machine
• When discarding this machine, request the treatment of it for an
industrial waste disposal contractor.
• Treat it properly in compliance with regulation in the local area.

dedicated RIP. For setting on the RIP, refer to the
instruction manual for your RIP.
• Pay attention to the expansion and contraction
of the media.
Do not use media immediately after unpacking.
The media can be affected by the room
temperature and humidity, and thus it may expand
and contract.
The media have to be left in the atmosphere in
which they are to be used for 1 day or more after
unpacked.
• Do not use curled media.
This may result in paper jamming.
If a regular-sized coated sheet of media is rolled
and stored, the coated side has to face outside.
• Be careful to dusts on the edge face of the
media.
Some rolls have dusts contained in the package
gathered on the edge surface of the roll. If you use
as it is, the drawing quality may be degraded due
to nozzle missing or ink drops. Be sure to set the
roll after removing dusts adhering on the edge
face of the roll.

Return the carriage to the station position.
When setting media, read the following notes carefully.
• Take care not to drop the media on your foot when
setting the media.It may cause an injury due to the
media.
• When setting a roll media, work by two or more
people. Otherwise, you may hurt your back by the
weight of the roll media.
• When you raise the clamp lever and cut the media
with your tools (cutter, scissors, etc.), be sure to
check each item below:
(1) Make TAKEUP setting in “TakeUp” of the
machine setting “OFF”. (
P.3-14)
(2) Check that the tension bar is at the highest
position.
In the following cases, the media may not be
detected correctly.
• When setting a transparent media / when a media
is exposed to direct sunshine.
• Do not use a printed media. Otherwise, ink can
adhere to the pinch rollers and media may be
stained or may not be detected.
• Straighten the significantly or internally curled
media to be fed along the platen.
• If the media is left set on the machine for a long
time, the media may form an irregular surface for
the heat from the heater. If printing on such an
irregular surface, the media may rub on the head.
If an irregular surface is found under the media,
feed the media with the [q] key to avoid printing on
the irregular surface, and set a new origin.
(
P.2-21)
• When setting a media, place the media in the
center of the machine. If the media is set to the

When using a take-up device, it is recommended
to set the media with its print-side facing inside.
• This machine allows a media to be set with its
print-side facing either inside or outside. Setting
the print-side facing inside reduces the variations
in tension caused by the changes in the media
diameter occurring when the media is taken up,
and thus secures stable take-up.

Setting of Media Correction
Correct the media feed amount to match the type of
media you are using.
If the correction value is not appropriate, stripes may
appear on the printed image, thus resulting in a poor
printing.
• Be sure to perform feed correction each time
before printing. The media feed amount may vary,
depending on the remaining amount of the roll
media.
• If use by setting the media to Narrow roll holder,
rewind the roll media by hand and set without
slack. There may not be accurate to correct the
feed amount.
• On completion of [MEDIA COMP.] during use of a
roll media, the media returns to the printing origin.
When a media is set on the narrow roll holder,
slack occurs in the roll media on the backside of
this machine.
Before printing, take up the slack in the roll media
by hand; a loose roll media can result in an inferior
image quality.
• When printing with a take-up device, set the media
first and then perform media correction.
• When printing without using the take-up device,
feed the media until the media reaches the floor
before performing the correction. Otherwise, the
feed amount may not be adjusted normally.

Chapter 4 Maintenance
Maintenance
Maintain the machine regularly or as necessary so that its
accuracy will be maintained and it can continue to be
used for a long time.
Cleaning the Exterior Surfaces
When the exterior surfaces of the machine are stained,
dampen a soft cloth with water or a neutral detergent
diluted with water, squeeze it, and wipe the surfaces with
the cloth.
Precautions for Maintenance
Pay attention to the following items when maintaining this
machine.
• When using cleaning solution for maintenance, be
sure to wear the supplied glove and protective
glasses.
• Never disassemble the machine.Disassembling it
can result in electric shock hazards or damage to
the machine.
Before maintenance, be sure to turn off the power
button and main power switch, and unplug the
power cable;otherwise, an unexpected accident
may occur.
• Prevent moisture from entering the
machine.Moisture inside the machine can cause
electric shock hazards or damage to the machine.
• To ensure stable ink jetting, it is necessary for the
machine to eject a small amount of ink (flushing)
regularly when a printing (outputting) operation
has not been performed for a long time.
• When the machine is not to be used for a long
time, turn off only the power button on the front
side, leave the main power switch at the side
turned ON (in the position of | ), and leave the
power cable connected.
Cleaning the Platen

Wipe off conspicuous stains with a soft-hair brush, a dry
cloth, a paper towel, etc.
• Do not use benzene, thinner, or any chemical
agent containing an abrasive.Such materials can
deteriorate or deform the surface of the cover.

• When the platen is stained with ink, wipe it off with
a paper towel containing a small amount of
cleaning solution for maintenance.
• Before cleaning the platen, make sure that the
pre-heater has cooled adequately.
• When cleaning the platen, do not apply strong
force to the platen or wipe it with a hard cloth.
Doing so may damage or deform the platen,
causing poor printed image. If the deformed platen
is used, the media may meander and the print
head may be damaged.

Cleaning of pre-heater cover and
Image quality confirmation LED Light
The pre-heater cover and the image quality confirmation
LED light are easy to be dirty because of the powder of
the media etc.
If it shows dirt, wipe it with a soft cloth soaked in water or
waterish mild detergent and wrung.
• Before cleaning the cover, be sure to check that
the pre-heater temperature is low enough.
Image quality confirmation LED Light
Cleaning the Media Sensor
The media sensors are located on the platen in the
backside (3 places) and the bottom surface of the head (1
place). When the sensor is covered with dust, etc., it may
cause false detection of media.
Using a cotton swab, remove the dust, etc. accumulated
on the surface of the sensor.
When cleaning the sensor on the lower surface of the
head is cleaned, move the carriage to the left end by the
operations of step 1 of P.4-12 “Cleaning the Ink Head and
the Area around It”, and clean it.

• Be sure to wear goggle and gloves for handling
the antifreeze liquid.
To cool the LED UV unit, put antifreeze mixed water into
the cooling water tank in the cooling device.
Cooling device
 Note on refill
• When only water is supplied to the cooling water
tank without antifreeze liquid, it may damage the
UV unit by freeze.
• When only antifreeze liquid is supplied to the
cooling water tank without water, the machine
does not work properly, and may cause an error.
• If water in the cooling water tank frequently
becomes insufficient, contact your local distributor,
our sales office or our call center.
• Dispose of the waste water mixed with antifreeze
liquid pursuant to the regulations of your district.
 Note on antifreeze mixed water
To make mixed water, be sure to use the potable
water meeting one of the following conditions:
• Calcium conten t:
1 mg/100 ml (10 mg/L) or less
• Hardness : 60 mg/L or less
• Distilled water (Purified water)
• Water and antifreeze liquid compound ratio should
be 2(water) to 1(Antifreeze liquid).
Or use our specialized antifreeze mixed water
(SPC-0783).
• Use it within one week when you make mixed
water. The mixed water that one week or more
passed after it makes it is never used for this
machine regardless of use/unused.
Moreover, do not add to the mixted water newly
made.
4-26
• Use the recommended antifreeze liquid(SPC0394) by Mimaki. If not, the cooling device may be
broken. (Supplied antifreeze liquid :1000cc x 2
bottles)
• Do not touch the antifreeze liquid directly. If the
antifreeze liquid settles on your skin or clothes,
immediately wash it off with soap and water. If you
get antifreeze liquid in your eyes, immediately
wash your eyes with a lot of clean water. Then,
consult a doctor as soon as possible.
• Store antifreeze liquid in a dark and cold place.
• Store antifreeze liquid in a place that is out of the
reach of children.
• When discarding antifreeze liquid which is no
longer needed, entrust them to an industrial waste
disposal contractor, clarifying their contents.
• Before using antifreeze liquid, be sure to read the
Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
• Prepare a tank with a cap to put in the waste water
from cooling water tank.
• When water in the cooling water tank is low, a
worning message “WATER LACK” is displayed. In
this case, refill water in the same way shown as
