Adding a Roland GX-24 to VersaWorks

I've added our Roland GX-24 to VersaWorks.  It acts like VersaWorks "sees" the GX, but when I go to drop a file into one of the GX's cues, it won't let me.  VersaWorks tells me "Files cannot be…Continue

"If you leave the unit plugged in and have ample ink in the carts you should have no problems. The machine will self clean. If you have time, going in and checking for issues like leaking ink is good and if you have doubts about the machine cleaning…"

Manual Cleaning in the time of Covid-19

Hi again everyone. It looks like we'll not be working for a couple weeks where I work. The phones haven't been ringing too much. My question is; if the Versacamm isn't being used for a solid 5 days or more, should I come in and still do the weekly manual clean on it? Let me know... thanks in advance!See More

"Oh.  Ours is set up for CMYK, cmk.  Looks like I'm going to be doing a small overhaul on the right side of the machine then.  The only thing "new" is the felt wiper.  Everything else is probably a couple years old…"

"The weekly wetting is excellent and I recommend that. The top is rated for 6 months. However, that is for White and Metallic in slots use.  If you do not have those inks inserted - you are good for at least a year, some get more, some less…"

"I would say the (rubber?) wiper is well past it's prime.  As far as the captop what are the signs it should be replaced that I should look for?  I usually wet it with the solution as part of my Friday afternoon ritual."

"You will not get a notice to change the scraper or the captop -  On the scraper, I remove the whole unit - 2 screws to remove and 2 screws to hold the scraper and it is real easy with long allen wrenches."

"Even better!  It asked me to change the felt about a month ago, which I did.  I've been waiting for it to tell me it needs a new wiper. My cutter pad / strip is overdue for a change out also. thanks!"

"Unfortunately, the wiper and the felt are different parts on the VS machine. The VS & VSi use the same wipers and felt. The part will say for the 640, but fits the 540, 300, and the BN20. Page 1-17 24 1000006736 WIPER,HEAD FELT VS-640 25…"

"The felt wiper is the same for many VS machines. I believe it is 6736. Call Roland 949-727-2100 for proper part numbers . They have helped me before."

Part numbers for VS-540i

Hi all. I'm looking to replace the wiper in my VS-540i and the cutter strip as well. I'm having a hard time finding them on the Roland store; or if I do find a part it doesn't necessarily list my machine as a direct fit. If I could get solid part numbers, that would be great. Thanks in advance!See More

Printing on raw fabric (cotton) with VS-540i

Posted on June 30, 2017 at 10:53am 1 Comment

Greetings all! Just had a customer stop in and was asking about running raw cotton through the VS-540i.

I told him no, as I was worried about lint sticking to and gumming up the print head.

Basically he wants to go to a fabric store, by a bolt of white cotton fabric and get custom pattern/designs for his client who makes limited high end clothing.  Apparently, having a fabric company print it is either cost prohibitive and/or there is too much…
