General information about OnSupport
Las impresoras de inyección de tinta Roland han sido diseñadas para permanecer inactivas solo durante breves periodos de tiempo. Cuando no está siendo usada, cada impresora lleva a cabo un mantenimiento automático. Sin embargo, hay algunas situaciones que requieren periodos prolongados de inactividad, especialmente en entornos educativos. Es importante preparar correctamente estos dispositivos para largos periodos de inactividad con el propósito de evitar daños y garantizar que estén en perfectas condiciones de producción al momento de imprimir nuevamente.
Roland inkjet printers were designed to accommodate short periods of downtime. Each printer performs automated maintenance when the machine is not in use. However, there are some situations that require extended periods of downtime, this is especially true in educational settings. It is important to properly prepare these devices for extended downtime to prevent damage and to ensure that your machine is in perfect production shape when you’re ready to start printing again.

All Roland devices with a USB, Parallel (LPT), or Serial (COM) port need a driver to communicate with a computer. For Roland products compatible with Apple Macintosh operating systems, a plugin is used with Adobe Illustrator. For Roland devices with an Ethernet port, the output software (e.g. - RIP)includes the driver as part of the application.
When outputting a design to your printer, the software needs to be able to translate commands to the device (such as how much ink to fire and when). These commands tell the machine how fast to feed the material, at what speed the print carriage travels, and what heat settings are needed for the print platen. Other variables include theproperties of thematerial being printed on, how the ink chemsitry reacts to it, how the different process colors of ink blend together to form other colors, and how long the print takes to dry. A Profile is a combination of all of these variables, among others.
