Hi, I get nice shiny silver color when using MT-25A, and I would very much like to get gold in a similar shiny color. There seems to be no gold setting in the Roland metallic library. So my idea…Continue

do I Need a News Head?

My VS540 is 5 years old, setup is cmyklclmmtwh. The machine prints cmyklclm perfectly, all nozzles firing, no deflection. The black has some deflection but the prints look just gorgeous. The metallic part hasn’t been used much and neither has white. Due to a new product, I need metallic now pretty much and thus found the metallic head has lots of missing nozzles and heavy deflection, the white though seemed to be like new first. Since I need 100% silver most of the time, I had the idea of…See More

"That answers my question. My concern was, that I have no idea, whether the printhead uses - for example - different voltages, depending on the kind of ink it uses. I think it does need different voltages for Max1 compared to Max2 or 3,…"

"More than just changing the chip - The ink will look to that chamber for a specific color and you would have placed it somewhere else. Try purging the line with cleaning fluid until it prints clear and then do a head soak."

White and metallic ink exchange

The printhead on my VS540 has some problems with the metallic part, while the white part is like new, all nozzles firing perfectly. Since I use white very rarely, but silver metallic very much, my question is: Is it possible to simply put a metallic cartridge into the white slot to get perfect 100% silver printing again? I probably will have to change the chip on the cartridge, I think? Or is there some reason why this would be not a good idea? Any help appreciated.See More

"Thank you! I will try it when I am going to change from Max to Max3 inks in a few weeks, just hoping for a little surprise :) Is there any chance of Roland bringing a gold-Ink? "

irving donaldson replied to Günter borgemeister's discussion Question about printing metallic Gold
"Yes plenty ideas about it but what you ask is worst than what you are getting now. In the drop down in VW it is the blended option. That option prints faster and mixes with the silver - but more muted - give it a try. When folks want what you ask,…"

Günter borgemeister replied to Günter borgemeister's discussion Question about printing metallic Gold
"Yes, I know that, and thank you for the answer. The problem is, the inks are not really mixing, but, Yellow, a little Magenta and even less Cyan are covering the silver ink more or less. Thus the result is gold in color, but looses the shiny, almost…"

irving donaldson replied to Günter borgemeister's discussion Question about printing metallic Gold
"The ink is metallic silver. You get other metallic colors by mixing various CMYK values with the Metallic Silver. On the chart are if printed you can see the values. You can also see the values in Versaworks and have the option to change the values.…"
