A reminder from Roland about maintenance

The thumbnail version:

  • Pay attention to the maintenance warning messages
  • Bypassing the warnings has consequences

The full version:

Roland has a money-saving tip for you—pay attention and react to the display warning message system on your Roland DG TrueVIS printer.

If you bypass the “Time for Maintenance” message by hitting the “enter” key, your machine apparently remembers this. If you continue to bypass it, the machine will compensate for the lack of a manual cleaning by doing longer and more frequent internal automatic print head cleanings. This uses more ink and therefore costs you money.

Failing to conduct scheduled manual cleanings can also result in clogged print head nozzles and poor quality prints.

So, pay attention to the “Time for Maintenance” message. It has quality and bottom line benefits.
