HP Scitex FB950 - Load and print on roll-fed media

Figure : Roll-fed media path
If the optional roll-fed media supply and takeup system is installed on the printer, you can print on rollfed media.
  note:
The first time that the roll-fed system is used, it must be enabled on the control panel menu. Select Settings > Support Rollfed to enable the roll-fed system.
  1. If installed, detach the rigid media input and output tables from the printer, and set them aside.
  2. If you will be using the takeup system, install the takeup spool, see (8).
  3. Load the media centered onto the supply spool (1).
      note:
    To prevent fingerprints from showing on printed output, wear gloves while handling the media.
  4. Load the supply spool onto the supply system bracket. You can print on either side of the media by loading the spool so the media spools off the bottom of the roll or the top of the roll.
  5. Configure the media. At the end of the Configure Media process, press the Proceed key on the control panel.
    OR
    If the media is already configured, from the Front Page screen of the control panel, press the Load key. The printer displays a menu with the following options:
    • New Load — loads a new media, discards previous settings.
    • Restore Loaded State — loads media using the previously-used settings when roll-fed media is already loaded in the printer but the printer is not in a loaded state. This can happen if the printer goes to sleep or is rebooted, or if you press the Unload key on the front panel, but not physically remove the media from the printer.
    Follow the procedure in the next sections that corresponds to the load option you choose.
New load
  1. On the Select Thickness Units screen, press the option that corresponds to the units you will use.
  2. On the Enter Media Thickness screen, enter the media thickness, or press the Esc key to use the default thickness.
  3. As prompted by the control panel, remove the foam press roller, then press the Proceed (►) key.
  4. Pull the media from the roll, pull it over the foam lift roller (2) (the foam press roller (3) should not be in position yet) and lay it on the belt up to the input media roller (4).
  5. On the control panel, press the upper (forward) Advance Media arrow key to advance the media, with the vacuum fans on. You may need to hold the media down on the belt until the vacuum grabs it.
    • If using the takeup system, advance the media until it hangs on exit side down to the takeup roller. Do not tape the media to the core at this time.
    • If not using the takeup system, advance the media at least past the output media roller (5). During printing, make sure that the media does not fall behind takeup rollers (6) (7) and (8).
  6. On the control panel, press the Turn Off Fans key.
  7. Hold the upper (forward) Advance Media key down for about five seconds. This will help smooth out wrinkles and equalize the tension of the media across the belt. Since the fans are off, the media should not advance. If the media moves, hold onto the media with your right hand while pressing the Advance Media key with your left hand.
  8. On the control panel, press the Turn On Fans key.
  9. Lower the input (4) and output media rollers (5) to their lowest positions.
  10. Check for wrinkles in the media across the full length and width of the belt. If you see any wrinkles, turn off the fans and smooth out the wrinkles with your hand. Repeat steps 7 through 9 until no wrinkles are visible.
  11. Place the foam press roller (3) into operating position.
  12. If you are not using the takeup system, go to step 19.
  13. Align the cardboard takeup core to the media and tighten the collets to lock the core in place.
  14. Lift the first dancer bar (6) (with the gears), and lock in the upper position.
  15. Pull the media under the first dancer bar, over second dancer bar (7), and down to the printer side of takeup roller (8).
  16. Looking down the length of the takeup roller from the user end, the roller rotates clockwise. Ensure that the media is wrapped.
  17. Tape the end of the media to printer side of takeup roller, starting in the middle and working out to both ends. Be sure to maintain even tension across the width of the media.
  18. Release the dancer bar locking lever.
  19. Press the Proceed (►) key.
  20. Enter the media length or press the Esc key for an undefined length.
    The printer measures the media width.
  21. On the Front Page screen, press the Proceed (►) key. The Front Page screen appears on the control panel.
  22. Press the Go Online key. The printer is now ready to receive a print job from the RIP.
Restore loaded state
  1. As prompted by the control panel, remove the foam press roller, then press the Proceed (►) key.
  2. Press the upper (forward) Advance Media key to advance the media to the takeup spool and/or past any printed area of the media.
  3. On the control panel, press the Turn Off Fans key.
  4. Hold the upper (forward) Advance Media key down for about five seconds.
  5. On the control panel, press the Turn On Fans key.
  6. Press the Proceed (►) key.
  7. Check for wrinkles in the media across the full length and width of the belt. If you see any wrinkles, turn off the fans and smooth them out with your hand. Repeat steps 3 through 7 until no wrinkles are visible.
  8. Place the foam press roller (3) into operating position.
  9. If you are not using the takeup system, or if the media is already loaded in the takeup, go to step 15.
  10. Align the cardboard takeup core to the media and tighten the collets to lock the core in place.
  11. Lift the first dancer bar (6) (with the gears), and lock in the upper position.
  12. Pull the media under the first dancer bar, over second dancer bar (7), and down to the printer side of takeup roller (8). Looking down the length of the takeup roller from the user end, the roller rotates clockwise. Ensure that the media is wrapped.
  13. Tape the end of the media to printer side of takeup roller, starting in the middle and working out to both ends. Be sure to maintain even tension across the width of the media.
  14. Release the dancer bar locking lever.
  15. Press the Proceed key (►).
  16. Enter the media length or press the Esc key for an undefined length. The printer measures the media width.
  17. Press the Proceed key (►). The Front Page screen appears on the control panel.
