Roland DG encourages our customers to carefully read and follow the information in order to properly conduct necessary measures to ensure the health of their machines.

Basic information is provided below.

Inkjet Printers and Printer/Cutters
It is important to prevent printheads from drying out. Therefore, it is necessary to provide an environment in which the machine performs automatic maintenance as normal.
  1. Ensure that the main power switch (rear of machine) is left ON and the power cord plugged into an electrical outlet.
  2. Turn ON the sub power (front control panel) once a month (once every two weeks for UV printers).
  3. Empty the drain bottle so that the waste liquid discharged during automatic maintenance does not overflow.
  4. Do not empty the inks or cleaning liquid to allow the machine to perform automatic maintenance.
Designated models: All Roland DG inkjet printers, printer/cutters
Dental Wet Mills
It is important to keep the filter of wet mills in good condition by draining the coolant from the reservoir tank.
Designated models: DWX-4W, DWX-42W
