Media thickness

There are a number of factors that affect copying of thick media:

Media thickness positions

Auto-adjustment of the scanner's light profile, stitching etc. only takes place with the insertion slot in the Normal position. With extended media thickness positions, the last performed auto-adjustment is stored and utilized. This means that the insertion slot should be returned to the normal position from time to time, and especially when turning the scanner on, to allow it to auto-adjust.
The Normal position also gives the highest scanning speed. In the extended media thickness positions, scanning speed is automatically reduced. Click here to read about changing the insertion slot height.

Modifying Stitching Parameters

Thick stiff originals will rest on top of the scanner rollers and thus raise a small distance over the glass plate, which will lead to changes in the stitching of images at points between the cameras (overlapping pixels). The stitching parameters will need to be modified in order to correct for this. Modify stitching parameters in the application's Scanner Setup dialogs.

Treating Edge Distortion

Scanning thick originals can give distortions when the front edge meets the exit rollers or the trailing edge leaves the entry rollers. To omit this, the leading and trailing edges are by default skipped when in one of the extended media thickness positions.

Supporting thick originals

To facilitate scanning of thick originals in the extended media thickness positions, it is important to insert the original center-aligned and to help support the original during scanning. This should be done both at the entrance side and the exit side of the scanner. Specially designed support tables can be attached behind the scanner for copiers that perform a lot of thick media scanning.
Scanning thick media can require enlarging the insertion slot and this can affect the copier's automatic control of border lines between the cameras, called Stitching.
First, adjust the insertion slot to accommodate the thick media. Click here to read about changing the insertion slot height.

Copying thick media

  1. Load the thick original to scan. Center loading is recommended with thick originals. The scanner's media transport rollers grip more evenly with center loading.
  2. Make a test scan.
    • Bulky, thick media needs to be supported with both hands on its way in and out of the scanner.
    • Stitching errors will be easiest to see on an image with one or more clear diagonal lines.
    • Normally, only stiff media will affect stitching. A flexible media will usually be stitched correctly regardless of its thickness.
  3. If the lines seem uneven, do the following:
    1. Select the Setup tab.
    2. Select the Scan Options button.
    3. In the Scan Menu, select Scanner Setup.
    4. Check the box labeled Adjust for extended media thickness.
    5. Change the value for each of the scanner's cameras - normally, only positive values should be used.
    6. Make test scans and readjust the values until you are satisfied that the lines are stitched correctly.
  4. Click OK to accept the settings.
  5. Repeat steps 2 to 10 until the results are satisfactory.

The media insertion slot...

The insertion slot height can be adjusted from 0 to 15 mm (0 to .6 inches). The Normal position (Step 0: 2mm/0.08 inches) is detected by a sensor in the scanner.
The insertion slot is marked with a measurement ruler for inches and millimeters. The ruler corresponds to right side-aligned original loading. Just below the ruler common standard sizes are marked that help guide optional centered loading.
The loading method, right side or centered, can be selected from the HP Designjet copier/scanner software. The scan area width measured in standard sizes, inches, or millimeters is also set from the application.
The required setting for an original drawing can be measured with the original inserted into the scanner by using the ruler printed on top of the insertion slot. Then, just enter the measurement in the width setting box in the current scanner application's media size setup dialogs.

Changing the insertion slot height

When the insertion slot height is not in the Normal position, the following warning is displayed below the preview window on the touch screen: PAPER GUIDE IN EXTENDED POSITION

To change the insertion slot height:

  1. Open the Insertion Slot cover.
    Figure : Opening the Insertion Slot cover
  2. While pressing down on the platen, pull first one slider and then the other (left and right) towards the copier's center until the media thickness adjustment sliders on each side are at the same setting.
    Figure : Adjusting the media thickness sliders
  3. Close the cover.
    Figure : Closing the cover

To return the insertion slot height to its Normal position

  1. While pressing down on the platen, push first one slider and then the other (left and right) towards the sides of the copier.
  2. When the platen is returned to its Normal position, the message PAPER GUIDE IN EXTENDED POSITION will be replaced by the Load option: Center or Side.
