HP Scitex LX Printer Family - The ink collector kit (LX800 only)

Before printing on porous substrates, such as textile or mesh substrates, you must install the ink collector kit provided with your printer, to protect the printer from the ink that falls through the substrate. The kit must be removed before printing on non-porous substrates.
Kit components
  1. Ink collector container
  2. 8 ink collectors with replaceable foams
  3. Input diverter roller
  4. Output diverter roller
Install the kit
The ink collector kit must be installed before printing on porous substrates.
  warning:
Do not touch the internal enclosures of the printer's drying and curing modules while installing the ink collector kit: they can be hot enough to cause burns.
  caution:
Do not install the ink collector kit without declaring the configuration to the HP Internal Print Server.
  1. If any substrate is loaded, unload it.
  2. Raise the carriage beam to its highest position.
  3. Remove the edge holders from the substrate path.
  4. If necessary, clean the platen and the curing plates with a cloth dampened with an all-purpose cleaner.
  5. Open the ink collector container and check that the ink collector foams are dry.
  6. Follow the instructions in the HP Internal Print Server to complete the installation. If you need further information, read the steps below.
      caution:
    If you install the kit incorrectly, some parts of the printer may be damaged.
  7. When the carriage beam has stopped rising, go to the rear of the printer and insert the first ink collector on the left.
    There is a stop that marks the position of the first ink collector.
  8. Moving gradually to the right, install the other ink collectors.
    To install the last ink collector on the right, you have to move a blue spring-loaded clip.
  9. Check that all the ink collectors are aligned with each other and that there are no gaps between them.
  10. Check that there are no gaps between the foams.
  11. Check that the foams fit into the spaces provided for them. If they have expanded and no longer fit, replace them.
  12. Install the two diverter rollers.
    • In the roll-to-free-fall configuration, the output diverter is not needed.
    • In the roll-to-roll configuration, you are recommended to use both diverters, but in some cases you may be able to minimize wrinkles by changing the position of a diverter or even by removing one or both of them.
  13. Check that the curing plates are in the correct position for the substrate you are loading (see The curing plates (LX800 only)).
  14. Load the substrate, which should pass outside the input diverter and inside the output diverter.
  15. Deploy the edge holders.
  16. If you have not already done so, go to the HP Internal Print Server and select Substrate > Load/Unload. In the load configuration, ensure that the Ink collector box is checked.
  17. Lower the carriage beam to the normal position.
  18. You may need to enter the left edge position and the substrate width into the HP Internal Print Server, if the printer cannot detect them.
Uninstall the kit
The ink collector kit must be uninstalled before printing on non-porous substrates.
  1. Raise the carriage beam to its highest position.
  2. If any substrate is loaded, unload it. Take care that it does not touch the ink collector foams, which may be wet with ink.
  3. Remove the edge holders, and clean them if necessary.
  4. Remove the diverter rollers.
  5. Remove the ink collectors by pressing on the grips that secure them to the printer. To remove the rightmost ink collector, first move aside the blue spring-loaded clip.
  6. Store the ink collectors correctly in their box. If you stack them in a pile, they may warp.
  7. Before lowering the carriage beam to the normal position, go to the HP Internal Print Server and select Substrate > Load/Unload. In the load configuration, ensure that the Ink collector box is unchecked.
