The MR4 release provides major new functionalities and improvements and fixes in many areas that increase printer stability. The main changes versus MR3 are detailed below.
User Interface (IPS):
General IPS stability has also been improved to allow a better printing experience by avoiding freezes and reducing response time. When printing long queue tasks, the preview has been decreased from 50m to 10m to ensure correct IPS PC performance.
User experience with IPS and performance have been improved by correcting issues related to localization and units display, allowing options that weren’t available before, such as the rearrange button when nesting, enabling the ‘abort rotation’ option or loading an image wider than the loaded media. When using dual roll, the roll preferences are imported from the RIP, and the queue management issues have been fixed. Also, Settings are preserved when exporting/importing presets.
Fixes on mechanics and usage reporting for the Service information plot and new messaging workflows when reporting errors. In the print adjustments window, the ‘advance value’ feature is disabled when OMAS is active, and the possibility to modify the tensions has been added as well.
This FW version includes really important fixes related to general printer stability; it mainly reduces the occurrences of the the most important printing interruptions.
The error 61.02 has been partially fixed, mainly when printing long jobs, and also freezes while processing status have been reduced. Connectivity errors and 79.04 occurrences have also been reduced in order to allow for better continuous unattended printing workflow.
Printhead control:
Workflows to deal with PH reseats have been improved, both for messaging and workflows, so now the user can recover from the error by performing a Reinitialize carriage in case of a disconnection glitch without reseating the printhead. Also, more diagnosis is automatically collected in order to continue reducing these occurrences.
Print Care:
Several diagnostic tests have been corrected to display the reason for the failure after the FAIL message. Also, some remaining localization error items have been corrected.
The wiper Z-calibration check (47005) can now be done after any other Printhead cleaning station test.
