Imaging Print Masters with PRINT GOCCO PG-5 model

Firstly, you must have your artwork prepared ready for imaging - see Artwork Types & Preparation if unsure.

For best results your artwork must be carbon based and free of moisture.


How to Image Print Masters

 

  Open PG-5 lid, and place a piece of card onto the Pad Table [ensure plastic protector is removed from Pad Table].

Insert the B6 Print Master

Insert B6 HM Print Master into the Stage Glass with the plastic flap of the Master facing the stage glass [smooth side facing you]. Insert the bottom edge first, that with the arrow pointing downwards
Align your design Place artwork onto the Pad Table in a position ready for imaging.

Remember: Insert Blue Filter if required between the Print Master and Stage Glass at this time.

View the design Lower the lid of the PG-5 and view that your artwork is within the frame area - It is best to allow 5mm around each edge. If the artwork has moved or is not inside the frame area, lift the lid and re-position.
Insert Print Lamps Insert Print Lamps into Lamp Housing by twisting into the holes. Note: the Print Lamps will only screw in one direction.
Insert the Lamp Housing - back firstLock in the Lamp Housing Insert Lamp Housing into PG-5 lid by sliding the back in first [aligning the arrows] and then lowering the front [The front being the side with the two metal tags]. Push down so as the Lamp Housing locks into position.
Flash the Print Master Place the palms of your hand on the two front corners and push down until the machine flashes - HOLD THE UNIT DOWN FOR 4-5 SECONDS or until the lamps stop cracking. This allows the heat to correctly image the design.

Raise the handles back to a resting position and remove the Lamp Housing - CAUTION the Print Lamps will be hot.

Place the Lamp Housing face up so excess heat can freely escape - if you have gloves, or tough skin, you can remove the Print Lamps from the Lamp Housing at this stage.

Artwork Imaged Lift the lid of the PG-5 and remove the Print Master - you are now ready to ink your design.

It's that simple and easy to make a Print Master - Just ensure that your artwork is prepared and free of moisture for the best result every time.
