Did you know that the table height on your LEF-12 can be adjusted while printing? Here’s how.
During the material set-up, the LEF-12 will detect an object’s height and set the table height automatically for optimal print quality. The sensor will continue monitoring the height of the substrate during printing, stopping the printing immediately if the substrate is somehow lifted (which can result in head strikes).
If you are doing production work and printing on a large batch of objects, you may find that variances in object height, or the raised texture of the embossing feature on the LEF-12, can trigger the sensor and cause printing to stop. This can result in wasted materials and a reduction in productivity.
Luckily, there’s an option that will prevent this kind of scenario from occurring. As you prepare for your next project, follow these steps to activate the Automatic Table Height Adjustment setting:
- Press the MENU button on the LEF-12 panel and navigate to SUB MENU > CLEARANCE MODE.
- Select the option “RE-ADJ.” and press ENTER.
- When “RE-ADJ.” is selected, the LEF-12 will automatically re-adjust the table height to ensure a safe distance, allowing for uninterrupted printing.
