Imaging B6 Print Masters with PG-11
Firstly, you must have your artwork prepared ready for imaging - see Artwork Types & Preparation if unsure - this being a carbon original free of moisture.
Remove Registration Plate from the machine
Center the Alignment Guides in the PG-11 Pad Table and lock into the home position.
Insert B6 HM Print Master, sliding in with the plastic facing the stage glass [smooth side facing you] from the right. Ensure the Print Master slides in under the Master Guides around the Stage Glass.
Place your artwork onto the PG-11 Pad Table, using the Paper Guide if possible to ensure perfect registration instantly.
Insert Print Lamps into Lamp Housing.
Insert Lamp Housing into PG-11 Machine by sliding in the back first and then lowering the front [The front being the side with the two metal tags]
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.
Lift 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.
Lift the lid of the PG-11 and remove the Print Master ready for Inking.
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.
