Learn how to reduce dust from cutting roll paper with the imagePROGRAF TC-20.


If the paper tends to generate dust when cut, such as with Backlit Film, you can reduce flying dust by setting Cut-dust reduction to ON from the operation panel menu, which will coat the leading and trailing edges of the printed document with ink. As a result, you can reduce problems with the print head. You can set Cut-dust reduction according to the media type.
