How to Install the Roll Feeder

 

In order to install the roll feeder for cutting, the cutting machine must be prepared, and preparations must be made to install the roll feeder and rolled material onto the machine.

 



Installing the roll feeder

  1. Pull the feeder release lever (on the right side of the machine) toward you.

    • If the feed roller is not correctly positioned, the base attachment cannot be installed correctly.
      Make sure that the feed roller is moved to the position for using the roll feeder.
    • Press on the base attachment to firmly secure it to the shaft.
    • Make sure that the base attachment is secure against the front tray cover.




     
  7. Prepare a roll holder.

  9. Flip up the guide plate on each side of the roll holder.

  10. Insert the material so that the pin on the left guide plate fits into the paper core of the material, and then place the roll on the four support rollers.
    Be sure to load the material so that it unrolls from the top and the side to be cut faces up.

  11. While squeezing the adjustment lever, slide the right guide plate against the roll to correctly align the left edge of the material.

    The material is correctly loaded when there is a gap of about 2 to 3 mm between the guide plate and the right side
    of the roll. After aligning the left edge of the material, adjust the guide plate.

Before inserting the material into the roll feeder, make sure that the end of the material is evenly trimmed and the both corners are at right angles.

As shown below, if the left and right edges of the material are not parallel or both corners are not at right angles when the material feeds, it loses contact with the feed roller, causing the material to become skewed and feed incorrectly.

The following procedure can be checked that the end of the material is evenly trimmed to meet all these conditions.

 

 

  1. Pull the end of the material until it reaches the guide channel.
    Check that the side to be cut faces up.

  2. Make sure the left edge of the material is aligned with the rolled material guide and the end of the material is perfectly aligned with the guide channel.


    【When aligned】

    There is no need to evenly trim the end of the material.

    Feed the material into the machine. For details, see “Feeding the Material

    【When not aligned】

    The end of the material must be evenly trimmed.

    For details, see “Using the trimmer blade to trim the end of the material
    After trimming the end of the material, go to “Feeding the Material” .

Feeding the Material

 

While keeping the left edge of the material aligned with the rolled material guide, lightly insert the material under the left and right feed rollers. While holding the material inserted under the feed rollers so that the material does not shift, press image in the operation panel.

>>When the material is fed into position, preparation of the roll feeder is completed. At this time, make sure that the left and right feed rollers completely pass over the material.


 

 

After feeding the material, retrieve the data on the cutting machine and cut.

For details, refer to “Retrieving Roll Feeder Data On the Machine and Cutting”.
