Specifying the Ink Drying Time for Rolls

When you are using paper that takes longer for ink to adhere, ink may be transferred onto the paper surface during ejection, soiling it. In that case, you may be able to improve the condition by setting the time to wait for the ink to dry after printing.


  • If the Cutter touches the print surface on which the ink is not dry, the paper surface may become scratched or soiled, or the paper surface may rub when the paper falls and the surface may become soiled.

    To wait for the ink to dry without allowing printed materials to fall after printing, set Cutting mode on the printer menu to Eject cut. (See "Specifying the Cutting Method for Rolls.")

  • The settings can also be made from the touch screen on the printer. From Paper settings, select Paper settings > Advanced and set Pause between scans and Pause between pages.

Set with the touch screen of the printer.

    If you have the next page, when print it after the ink drying time has elapsed.

    Pause on last page take-up

    When you use a roll unit mode as a take-up, you set the wait time after you print the last page.

    If you have the next page to print, cancel the drying time waiting and print.

    Pause timing priority

    You can specify a preferred pause time when using a roll unit as a take-up mode.
