BN-20 no. of passes and overprint

Hii hope this is not a silly question but I was wondering whether the number of passes in a profile uses more ink. I am currently using overprint but need just a little more white ink to make the…Continue

"from experience i have never got to empty a white cart and always seam to change them with probably 20% left because the ink has gone weak despite shaking and extra re circulations. when this happens the print does not seam to dry as quickly and…"

"Thank you for your comments. The Tech came out for routine maintenance and replaced the cap top. I have tried a few palettes - Pantone, BK21A and someone suggested 30/30/30/100 which I have tried most recently. I have been printing in this manner…"

BN-20 printing dark colours on clear vinyl using a white ink base

I have a CMYK+Wh configuration for my BN-20 and I use a white ink base when I need to produce stickers printed on clear vinyl. I have been doing this for over 12 months with reasonably good results.Recently, I have been experiencing some issues and I have been playing around with different techniques to rectify it but the results have not been consistent. I feel it could be a media or ink cartridge problem - see attached photo.My machine was serviced 3 weeks ago by a Roland Tech and I shake the…See More

"I think you are overthinking this way to much. Your ink set up dictates the profiles. In VWs you have a drop down there where you can set whether you want to print - CMYK; CMYK W, or W CMYK, or W. If you are not going to print both at the same time,…"

Profile for printing CMYK on top of white ink base - BN-20

Hi All,I have a BN-20 CMYK+Wh that I use to create stickers that are printed on clear vinyl. These stickers are applied to a smooth wood surface and the printed part of the sticker should hide the wood grain. In order to get the correct opaqueness, I print a white layer first using an overprint profile that I created and check the setting Return to Origin after Print. After a while, I send the CMYK to print the same job over the top of the white layer.My question is:  what profile I should use…See More

irving donaldson replied to Edric Ferdinands's discussion BN-20 no. of passes and overprint
"The machine is design and prints slow enough not to need to print your white pass then cmyk. You can do that though by printing adding time in the print area, then return to origin. It makes plenty of sense, just do not think it will help, but you…"

Edric Ferdinands replied to Edric Ferdinands's discussion BN-20 no. of passes and overprint
"Hi Irving. With printing white ink as a base, should I leave time for ink to outgas before printing over the top or is that only a time delay before laminating? I usually leave 24 hours before laminating and a minimum of 3 hours between printing…"

Edric Ferdinands replied to Edric Ferdinands's discussion BN-20 no. of passes and overprint
"I don't know if it is a BN-20 thing but it is still see through if I don't use overprint. It is quite limiting as a Return to Origin is not accurate on larger jobs and the second print over the top may not line up perfectly. This also…"
