Extended Material Changeover (EMCO)

Download as PDF

 

An extended material changeover is required when moving from M2E-BK70 to any other VisiJet material. The extended changeover wizard will be automatically initiated by the printer and requires no special knowledge from the user. The extended changeover requires a 12 hour deep clean; this is best done overnight. The extended material changeover takes approximately 500g per bottle of cleaner material, so the bottles must be at least 50% full.

  1. Ensure printer is in Ready state. Select Tools > Material Change Wizard from the UI.
