Description

Adjusting print line length (Length Adjustment) (iPF680/iPF685/iPF780/iPF785/iPF670/iPF770)

Solution

To ensure that lines in CAD drawings are printed at exactly the right length, use [Adjust Length] to adjust the amount that paper is advanced. There are two options in [Adjust Length]: [AdjustmentPrint] and [Change Settings].
  • [AdjustmentPrint]
After a test pattern is printed, you will measure the discrepancy based on the results of printing.
  • [Change Settings]
No test pattern is printed. Instead, you will measure a document already printed to determine the discrepancy. Additionally, two modes are available in [AdjustmentPrint] and [Change Settings]: [A:High] or [B:Standard/ Draft]. Choose the mode that suits your particular printing application.
  • [A:High]
This setting is applied when [Highest] or [High] is selected in [Print Quality] in the printer driver.
  • [B:Standard/Draft]
This setting is applied when [Standard] or [Fast] is selected in [Print Quality] in the printer driver.
NOTE
  • Always check the [Adj. Priority] values before using [Adjust Length].
  • Use paper of the same type and size for adjustment as you will use for printing.

<Paper to Prepare>
When Using Rolls
An unused roll at least 10 inches wide
High-precision ruler
When Using Sheets
One sheet of unused paper of at least A4/Letter size
High-precision ruler

Perform adjustment as follows.

1. Load the paper.
IMPORTANT
  • Always make sure the loaded paper matches the type of paper specified. Adjustment cannot be completed correctly unless the loaded paper matches the settings.

2. On the Tab Selection screen of the Control Panel, press or to select the Settings/Adj. tab ().

NOTE
If the Tab Selection screen is not displayed, press the Menu button.

3. Press the [OK] button. The [Set./Adj. Menu] is displayed.

4. Press or to select Adjust Printer, and then press the OK button.

5. Press or to select [Feed Priority], and then press the [OK] button.

6. Press or to select [Adjust Length], and then press the [OK] button.

7. Press or to select [AdjustmentPrint] or [Change Settings], and then press the [OK] button. When you select [AdjustmentPrint], a test pattern is printed for you to measure the scale and calculate the discrepancy. The scale bar prints [Millimeter] in 50 mm increments and [Inch] in 1-inch increments.

NOTE
  • A test pattern is printed in black when you choose [A:High] or in magenta if you choose [B:Standard/Draft].
  • To cancel printing the test pattern for adjustment, hold down the [Stop] button. When "Stop printing?" is displayed, press or to select [Yes], and then press the [OK] button.

8. Press or to enter the amount of discrepancy, and then press the [OK] button. If the scale is shorter than the actual size, use a positive setting value. If it is longer, use a negative value. The feed amount can be adjusted in 0.02% increments.
