Safety Precautions
WARNING
Notes on maintenance
• When handling ink and cleaning solution, pay
close attention to ventilation and be sure to
wear the included safety glasses and gloves.
• The gloves supplied with the machine are
disposable. When all the gloves are
expended, purchase an equivalent product on
the market.
• Before using ink and cleaning solution, be
sure to read the Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
• Keep ink away from an open flame. Also keep
the room well ventilated when you use or
handle ink.
• If you get ink in your eyes, immediately wash
your eyes thoroughly with a lot of clean water
for at least 15 minutes. Then, consult a doctor
as soon as possible.
• If anyone drinks ink by mistake, keep him or
her quiet and see a doctor immediately. Do not
allow him or her to swallow the vomit. Then
contact the emergency number written on the
SDS.
• If you inhale a great deal of vapor and feel ill,
immediately move to a location with plenty of
fresh air, and keep yourself warm and quiet.
Consult a doctor as soon as possible.
• If the ink adheres to your skin, use a large
amount of water and soap or special detergent
for skin to remove the ink.
Periodic replacement parts
• Some parts of this machine must be replaced with new ones
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.
Protection of media from dust
• 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.
Clump lever
• Never raise the lever during printing. Raising the lever will
abort printing.
Notes on maintenance
• It is strongly recommended to use the machine in a room
that is not dusty.
• 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.
• Perform wiping (removal of dust and paper powder) of the
capping station and wiper frequently.
ix
WARNING
Handling ink bottles
• The safety evaluation of this machine assumes that the ink
recommended by this company is used. For safe usage of
this machine, use the ink recommend by this company.
• Never refill the ink bottles with ink. Refilled ink cartridge can
cause a trouble. Remember that MIMAKI assumes no
responsibility for any damage caused by the use of the ink
cartridge replenished with ink.
• If an ink bottle is moved from a cold place to a warm place,
leave it at room temperature for at least three hours before
using it.
• Open the ink bottle just before installing it in the machine. 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 bottles in a place that is out
of the reach of children.
• Once an ink bottle is opened, be sure to thoroughly
consume the ink within three months. If an extended period
of time has passed away after opening the cartridge tank,
printing quality would be poor.
• Do not pound ink bottles or shake them violently. Doing so
could cause the ink to leak.
• Consult with your sales or service representative regarding
the proper disposal of ink bottles and waste ink. When you
dispose them by yourself, follow the regulations stipulated
by the industrial waste disposer or the country or region you
live in.
Handling of media
• Use media recommended by MIMAKI to ensure reliable,
high-quality printing.
• 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.
Disposition of this machine
• Consult your sales or service representative for proper
disposal of this machine. Otherwise, commission an
industrial waste disposal company.

• If you get ink in your eyes, immediately and thoroughly flush your eyes with plenty of running water
for at least 15 minutes, with eyelids held open.
Seek medical attention as soon as possible.
• Use genuine ink bottles for this machine. This
machine functions by recognizing the genuine ink
bottles. Our limited warranty does not cover damage resulting from modification of ink bottles or
other parts of the machine.
• Store the ink bottles in a location no more than 1 m
from the floor surface. If the ink bottles are
dropped from a height of more than 1 m onto a
floor surface, the impact of the fall can cause the
caps on the ink bottles to come off, causing the ink
inside to spill out.
• If the ink bottles are moved from a cold place to a
warm place, leave it in the room temperature for
three hours or more before using it.
• Store the ink bottles in a cold and dark place.
• Keep the ink bottles out of reach of children.
• The ink contains an ingredient that is toxic to
aquatic organisms (photopolymerization initiator).
Take all measures necessary to prevent it from
leaking into natural water sources and sewage
systems.
• Read the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) before using
the ink bottles.
• Ask an industrial waste disposal company to dispose of waste ink bottles.
1
• Do not shake the ink bottles violently. Shaking the
ink bottles violently can cause ink to leak out of the
bottles.
• Never refill the ink bottles with ink. Doing so may
result in a failure. MIMAKI will not bear any
responsibility for any damage caused by using ink
bottles that have been refilled with ink.
• Do not touch or stain the part where the IC chip
comes into contact with the printed circuit board.
Doing so can cause damage to the printed circuit
board.

Precautions on Handling the Media
Observe the following precautions for handling the media:
• Use the recommended media.
Use the media recommended by MIMAKI to ensure reliable, high-quality printing.
• Note that the media can shrink or stretch.
Do not use media immediately after unpacking. The media can shrink or stretch due to room temperature and humidity.
After unpacking the media, leave it in the place where the media is to be used for at least 30 minutes before installing it in
the machine.
• Do not use curled media.
Using curled media can cause paper jamming. When rolling regular-sized coated media for storage, make sure that the
coated side is facing outward.
• Dust may be accumulated on the edge of the media.
Depending on the roll you are using, the dust inside the package may be gathered on the edge surface of the roll. Using
dusty media can cause nozzle missing or ink drops that can lead to degraded printing quality. Remember to remove the
dust on the edge surface of the roll before installing it on the machine.

Notes when using media press
Typical setting position of printing origin
• When installing the media, make sure that the
right edge of the media is placed on the left side
with respect to the slit line on the platen. Placing
the media rightward of the slit line will make it rise
up if it moves obliquely, and this could cause damage to the head.
• If a media is misaligned to the right of the standard
position, an error message “MEDIA SET POSITION R” is displayed.
The printing origin in the depth direction (X') is positioned
at about 75 mm rearward from the slot for cutting on the
platen.
The printing origin in the scanning direction (Y') is
positioned at 15 mm from the right end of the media. The

Installing Tools
You can use the following tools with this machine:
Cutter:
This tool is selected when an image printed on a media
is cut or when letters are cut with a cutting media.
Pen (water-based ballpoint pen):
This tool is used to perform "test printing" for checking
how images or letters are actually cut.
Adjusting the protrusion of the cutter
blade
Adjust the cutter blade according to the types of the
cutters and the sheet for use.
After adjusting the blade edge, set the cut condition and
perform test cut to check whether cutting is performed
well.
For the cutter supplied with the unit, the protruding
amount of the blade can be adjusted with the cutter
attached to the tool holder.
When a Cutter Is Used
• Do not touch the cutter with your fingers.
Sharp cutter tip may injure you.
• Do not shake the tool after having set the cutter.
Otherwise, the blade edge may pop out, causing
you to get injured.
• Keep the cutter out of reach of children. Dispose of
the used cutter blade in compliance with the applicable regulations.
• Take care not to protrude the blade too much. If
the cutter is used with its blade excessively protruded, the cutter can cut out the base paper, thus
damaging the machine.

Turn the adjusting knob to adjust the
protruding amount of the cutter blade.
• You can bring out the cutter blade by turning the
adjusting knob clockwise.
(With each turn of the adjusting knob, the cutter
blade advances 0.5 mm.)

Register the Optimal Print Conditions
to Match the Use
In this machine, you will be able to register print
conditions, SETUP 1 to 4 individually to match the media
in advance.
For example, after print on different types of media, return
to the media always use. In such case you can set the
optimum printing conditions by simply selecting the
registered SETUP 1 to 4.
• Print conditions that can be pre-registered with the
machine are the four types, "SETUP 1" to "SETUP
4".
• If you print with the print condition which do not
often use, you will be able to set the print conditions by selecting "Temporary".
If turn on the power again, settings in "Temporary"
will return to the original state when it was purchased.
Also if turn on the power again in "Temporary"
state, it will be the state in selecting "SETUP 1".

make a seal, and the machine detects them to cut them
out.
There are the following three types of register marks.
Enter register mark detection mode

Press (TEST CUT) in LOCAL.
Press
to select “MARK
DETECTION”, and press the
key.
• The machine enters register mark detection
mode.
register mark: Type 1
• When register detection is set to OFF, the machine
doesn’t enter register mark detection mode.
(
P.4-5)
• While various functions are being set, data entry
may be canceled and the machine may go back to
the previous setting item.
register mark: Type 2
Precautions for inputting data with
register marks
There are some limitations to preparing data with register
marks.
In order to make full use of this function, read the following
instructions carefully to correctly prepare data with
register marks.
register mark: Zero Margin
• The register mark described here is intended to
detect the sheet inclination and the lengths along
the X and Y axes. It is not a mark for trimming.
Size of register marks
• Use the TP4 when performing trapezium compensation to correct the uneven sheet feeding rate
caused by the difference in the diameter between
the right and left grit rollers. If the trapezium compensation is to be omitted, there is no need to set
the TP4. In that case, however, cutting distortion
will increase.
In addition, for the length of one the side of the register
mark compared to the data, refer to "Size of and distance
between register marks" (
P.4-4).
Make sure that the line width of the register mark is larger
than 1/10 the length of register mark.
The Flow of Cutting out the Registered Data
4~40mm
0.5~2.0mm
4-2
Add register marks to the
image that you want to make a
seal, and print it on a sheet.
There are some
conditions for creating
register marks.
See pages P.4-2
through P.4-4.
Set the printed sheet in the
machine.
Refer to P.2-4 to set
the sheet.
Send the cut-target image from
the computer for cutting.
In case it is not
successfully cut,
• Check the register
mark sensor.
• Check the position
of the Light Pointer.
Chapter 4 Cutting Function
Area where register marks and designs
can be arranged
The placeable range for the register mark and the image
is as follows.
• Set the start position of the register mark at 100 mm or more
from the media front end.
• Set the end position of the register mark at 110 mm or more
from the media rear end.
• When the data is copied by using RasterLink, make sure to
leave a space of 210 mm or larger at the tail end of the sheet.
No-plotting area around the register
marks
The area around a register mark (from the mark origin to
the mark size area) is a non-plotting area. There must be
no data plotted and no stains in this area; otherwise, the
origin may be detected incorrectly or a mark read error
could occur.
• If the mark origin is detected incorrectly, cutting will
be performed in the wrong area.

The size (Y) of a register mark suited for the distance (X)
between the marks is as shown below.
If the mark size (Y) is too small relative to the distance (X),
the marks may not be detected correctly. Be sure to
prepare appropriately sized register marks.
Recommended size of the area defined
with a set of four register marks
It is recommended that the size of the area defined with a
set of four register marks is in the range of A4 size (210
mm x 297 mm) to A3 size (297 mm x 420 mm).

When printing register marks continuously, set one side of
the register mark to 8 mm. If 8 mm or shorter register
marks are detected continuously, glitches might occur in
the machine.
For Type 1 register marks, the distance between the
marks must be no shorter than two times the mark length
and no longer than 1000 mm. For Type 2 register marks,
the distance between the marks must be no shorter than
the mark length and no longer than 1000 mm.

Notes for combined of printing & cutting
When using the attached application software to perform
the combined operation of print & cut, be careful with the
following:
(1) When performing combined of printing & cutting
with the attached application software to this
machine (RasterLink / FineCut), the following set
contents will follow the instruction of the
software side. Note that the contents set in this
machine will be invalid.
• Mark length
• Mark shape
Setting items for detecting register
marks
There are the following seven setting items for register
mark detection.
(1) MARK DETECT
Setting Value
ON/OFF
(2) FORM
Select either one of the following types of register
marks.
• Use the copy function of cutting software, in the
case of continuous cut, select the register mark of
Zero margin, and you will be able to place no margin between the register marks.
To eliminate the margin between the register
marks to cut efficiently, we recommend using the
"Zero Margin" mark shape.
(2) For the combined operation of print & cut
without register marks, you can perform print &
cut using the take-up device, but it might be
misaligned.
• Other than the above conditions, there is a possibility of the cutting line being misaligned depending on the printing data size. Therefore, it is also
recommended to perform the operation with data
which has register marks for combined printing &
cutting.

Set the media.
2
Check if the print start position (the origin )
is set at 110 mm or more from the media
front end, and 15 mm or more from the
media right end.
• Make sure that the width of the media is equal to
or larger than [Entire image width (including the
register mark) + right 15 mm + left 15 mm].
• If any of the front / left / right margin is insufficient,
the media end may be mistaken as the register
mark, which may cause the register mark
detection to start earlier.
• When set to ON, the cutter head moves when the
power is turned off.
(6) SENSOR LEVEL
Setting Value
1 to 7
Description
The bigger the numerical value is, the higher
the sensitivity of the register mark sensor
becomes. If register marks are not detected,

About Pressure Correction Offset (ADJPRS OFFSET)
Some part of a media is left uncut because the pressure
applied when the cutter blade touches the media is weak.
When an optional eccentric blade is used, some part of a
media to be cut with the blade's angle being 120 degrees
or less may be left uncut.
This is because the corners are cut with a low pressure
(about 5 g) automatically applied so that the media does
not turn up. Some part of a media may be left uncut
because the blade edge does not rotate smoothly in its
moving direction with the cutting pressure being low. In
such a case, configure the setting for the pressure to be
increased when the corners are cut.

Chapter 5 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.
When the Machine Is Not Used for a
Long Time
When the machine is not going to be used for a week or
more, clean the ink discharge passage. (
P.5-9) Then,
place the machine in storage.
• Always keep the main power turned “ON”.
• Remove any media that has been set.
Precautions for Maintenance
Pay attention to the following items when maintaining this
machine.
• If water or alcohol becomes mixed into the UV
curingink (UV ink), flocculation could occurred. Be
careful to keep water and alcohol away from boththe nozzles and the heads.
• This machine uses UV curing ink (UV ink).
When handling ink and cleaning solution, pay close
attention to ventilation and be sure to wear the
included safety glasses and gloves.
Cleaning the Platen
The platen easily gets dirty with lint, paper dust, etc.
generated when a media is cut.
Wipe off conspicuous stains with a soft-hair brush, a dry
cloth, a paper towel, etc.
• Never disassemble this machine. Disassembling it
can result in electric shock hazards or damage to
the machine.
Before maintenance, be sure to turn off the 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 switch on the front side,
leave the main power switch at the right side turned
ON (in the position of | ), and leave the power cable
connected.
• Do not wipe the nozzle face of the heads, wiper,
caps, etc. with water or alcohol. Doing so can
cause nozzle clogging or machine failure.
• Do not use benzene, thinner, or any chemical agent
containing an abrasive. Such materials can deteriorate or deform the surface of the cover.
• Do not apply a lubricant, etc. to any parts inside the
machine. Doing so can cause printing failure.
• Be careful that the cleaning solution, ink, etc. do
not stick to the cover, because this may cause the
surface of the cover to deteriorate or deform.
5-2
• When the platen is stained with ink, wipe it off with
a paper towel containing a small amount of cleaning solution for maintenance.
• When ink smears the end face of the media, be
sure to clean it.
• When ink adheres frequently, we recommended to
set the suction fan to "weak" or "standard".
• Because dust and dirt easily accumulate in the
slots for holding a media and cutting paper (cutter
line), be sure to clean these parts carefully.
Chapter 5 Maintenance
Cleaning the Media Sensor
The media sensors are located on the platen in the
backside and the bottom surface of the head. 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.
Cleaning the Media Press
When the media press is covered with lint, dust, etc., a
media cannot be fed normally during printing or dust
sticks to the nozzles, which may result in abnormal
printing.
Clean the media press regularly.
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.5-12“Cleaning the Ink Head and
the Area around It”, and clean it.

Use a clean stick soaked in maintenance
cleaning fluid to wipe ink off the head
surface or other surfaces.
Because the ink head employs a very precise
mechanism, due care needs to be taken when it is
cleaned.
Using a clean stick, etc., rub off gelatinous ink or dust that
may stick to the lower part of the slider and the area
around the ink head. In doing so, never rub the nozzles of
the head.
• Wipe off the ink sticking to the bottom
surface of the UV lamp with a clean stick
dipped in maintenance washing liquid for
maintenance. Wipe off so that maintenance
solution for maintenance will not remain.
Tools required for cleaning
• Clean stick
• Gloves
• Safety glasses
• Be sure to wear the attached safety glasses and
gloves when cleaning the area around the ink
head. Otherwise, you may get ink in your eyes.
• If you get ink in your eyes, immediately wash your
eyes thoroughly with a lot of clean water for at
least 15 minutes. Then, consult a doctor as soon
as possible.
