Specifying the Cutting Method for Rolls

How rolls are cut after ejection varies depending on printer settings.

  • Automatic cut

    The roll is automatically cut by the cutter blade.

    • Printer Setting

      Cutting mode > Automatic cut

  • Eject cut (when the paper surface is being scratched / to wait for ink to dry)

    Select this to move the cutter by operation panel operation and cut paper. With Automatic cut, the paper drops and may rub against the basket, resulting in damage to the print surface, but you can cut using this method and supporting the paper so that it does not drop to avoid damage to the paper. Also, you can prevent paper that has not dried from dropping by visually checking the ink has dried, and then cutting the paper.

    After printing is finished, select Cut paper to cut the roll.

    • Printer Setting

      Cutting mode > Eject cut


  • For some paper types, the default Cutting mode may be set to something other Automatic cut. For this paper, we recommend keeping the preset cutting mode.

  • If documents printed using Automatic cut or Eject cut are short, rolls are advanced a specific amount before cutting to prevent problems with cutting and paper ejection. This may create a wider bottom margin, in some cases.

Eject cut (when the paper surface is being scratched / to wait for ink to dry)


  • When cutting wide printed documents after Eject cut, have two people support the documents. If the paper drops, printed documents may be damaged.

  • Do not lift the paper when holding printed documents before cutting. If the paper rises, it may affect the printing quality or cause rough cut edges.

  • After printing is completed, Eject cut is possible after the set ink drying time has passed. If 5 minutes have passed without Eject cut, the printed document will be cut automatically to protect the printer mechanism.


  • With Eject cut, printing does not resume after a series of jobs have been printed continuously until the roll is cut.
