Imaging PRINT GOCCO Print Masters with B6
Firstly, you must have your artwork prepared ready for imaging - see Artwork Types & Preparation if unsure - this being a carbon original free of moisture.
Open B6 lid, and place a piece of card onto the Pad Table [ensure plastic protector is removed from Pad Table].
Place artwork onto the Pad Table in a position ready for imaging.
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.
Place the top of the Print Master into the Stage Glass by gently bending the Print Master - use caution not to over bend and crease the cardboard frame - the Print Master has been designed with enough flexibility for creasing not to occur.
Lower the lid of the B6 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 into Lamp Housing.
Insert Lamp Housing into B6 lid by sliding in the back first [aligning the arrows] 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 B6 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.
