    Hello all, I am expanding my JV3 160SP to use 4 printheads. I purchased the PH but it did not come with the steel plate required to mount the PH to the carriage. I was told by MImaki that only OEM printheads from Mimaki come with the steel plate, part # M 504020 S.
    Does anyone out there have one plate they can spare?
    Thanks for the help.

    wasn't there a steel mounting plate on the previous head at that position?

    The printer was using 6 color and 3 printheads. I am converting to 4 PH to run CMYK 4 color for fast production work.

    There still should have been a printhead in that position (albeit unused if running 6 color) that has the plate. My guess is someone ganked that head at some point and felt the mounting plate would not ever be needed.

    Montroy is a dealer for Mimaki and ordered the $4 plate for me.
