Roland SP540v print length inconsistent
I have an aging Roland SP540v.
Last week I had a 3m wide wall print to do, which I divided into 3 x vertical panels with a 10mm overlap, using Versaworks own CLIP AND TILE function.
All three panels ripped at the same time, and I ran the 7.5m print entirely in one go without pause.
However, when I came to install them, the three panels had come out different lengths and wouldn’t line up. The difference between the longest and the shortest panel was about 5cm.
The media is Avery MPI2903, which is a good quality media with a good backing paper and it does not stretch. They were laminated using a flatbed laminator without heat. The rollers are good and the housing is not cracked, I am using four rollers for the print.
The print quality was perfect, with no gaps or colour inconsistencies.
Does anybody recognise this problem?
Is there a motor or a sensor I need to replace? Or a setting that has wandered off during the print?
Thanks for reading.
