Mutoh XpertJet 1641SR – Media cockling!
I have purchased a new Mutoh XpertJet 1641SR.
Same workshop. Same vinyl. MD3, MD5, Arlon SLX. Same conditions in my workshop.
1) I used the new settings that came with the printer – Media cockling happens and the head hits the vinyl.
2) I copied the temperature setting from the old Mutoh – Media cockling happens and the head hits the vinyl.
3) Vacuum in on extra high, I turned off the pre-heater and platen – better results but I cannot rely on the printer for a long print. Media cockling happens and the head hits the vinyl.
Tons of waste and reprints! Very frustrating!
Mutoh know about the problem. They redesigned and installed additional parts to prevent media cockling on the new models. My model apparently has that – but I honestly hate the printer. I cannot rely on it.
Do you have this printer? Have you solved this media cockling problem?
