"Also, we always roll the banner material out prior to prints and then also maintain slack in it so it does not tax the grit / pinch rollers to pull off of the roll so hard."

VP-540 printed on an angle

Looking for any advice before I start to investigate this.  I was running a 48" x 80" banner on 54" material today and as the printer was printing, I noticed slight warbles along the edge of the print.  After it ran the 80" length, I noticed the print was done at an angle to where it started.  The material did NOT shift, just the placement of the print.   Has anyone had this happen before?  First time with this so I wanted to ask before I did anything.  Thanks for any advice!!  See More

My advice would be to post it in the forum. Even if it is in the wrong place I will see it and try my best to answer. If you send me private emails or chats, then I am only helping you and not someone who may have the same question later down the road. If you search the forum you will find your suggestions that I or someone previously posted. These machine are my livelihood, so if you want private advice I charge, however if you post openly then I give free advice when I can as a payback for the opportunity to be trained by the company. Adhering to Roland Polices some things I just cannot discuss when it comes to maintenance. Hope you understand, as I get a lot of these private request which takes time to digest and respond. Post a picture of your nozzle test and the print test from VW. As stated just post it, you can put it in the general section.
