I have successfully changed a dx5 printhead output style. OK maybe its no big news but how often are you really using white when printing on white choroplast??
The next question is how are you effectively using your 8 outputs??
When I found out our RIP program supported a dual CMYK setup, I immediately went about adjusting for a change. Forget if management even had a say in the matter.
Didnt matter, I already was thinking ahead of them.
So obviously I had to split all the CMYK lines to 2 each, eliminate the 4block of white split. Which also means no more annoying mix timer!!
My first setup was KCMYKXXX. , which resulted in a dark black and white image, almost burnt looking. Not right. So after all the "y" split came in , I was able to complete and use all 8 outputs , KCMYKCMY. Still not right everything looked like a Tim Burton movie!!
The final setup was KCMYYMCK, That was the winner, got my nozzle check, which actually didnt help me, but made me realize the the head could be doing so much more.
Tried it out on anything we did previously, winner all the way around.
When I first installed my printer an iuv600 , a Mutoh printer with an Epson DX5 printhead, it had some kind of printhead communication program that would somehow check the status of the printhead, sometimes it gave a waring about it not firing correctly. When we got new computers and we reinstalled everything, the program was noticeably quiet. Does this sound familiar to anyone with dx5 printheads? If you have or have access to the program in question, could it be shared? Thanks ant
