Safety instructions

Your safety and well being is our priority, so please follow these instructions when using your printer: 

  • The printer shall only be operated by trained personnel.
  • The printer shall be operated only under supervision. In the event of a malfunction or unusual printer behavior, stop printing and shut down the printer. 
  • Power to the printer is supplied by high voltage. Always turn off the printer and unplug the power cord before accessing the power supply.
  • The printer contains moving parts and therefore, do not interfere with the printer during printing. The printer can start moving without any notice and can cause injury.

Emergency STOP

The printer is equipped with a red emergency shut off switch – EMERGENCY STOP, placed at the top of the printer. Once pushed, this switch deactivates any ongoing operation, such as printing, disconnecting heated components, and stopping printer movement. After a short pause, the print head cooling fan will reactivate should the head remain hot. This function is to prevent the head from clogging and therefore, do not turn off the printer immediately after using the EMERGENCY STOP switch during printing.

At the touch of a button, the printer completely restarts and is ready to operate. It is necessary however, to remove the interrupted print from the pad and prepare the pad again. In any event of abnormal printer behavior, damage, or parts separation, please contact your service representative.
