    I am printing these Maroon colour prints an the ink seems to flow and create lines. Im sure its a heat issue...
    Im just not sure if I should increase or decrease the heat.

    On the ligter shade of red the colours are perfect but on the deeper maroon/dark red im getting lines and even shapes drying.

    Its like this on all 3 my printers. Im running 300 meters of these prints and its on 80 micron vinyl.

    Running them on 2 x Mimaki CJV's and 1 x "Chinese" printer (DX5 heads)

    Heat settings are 36, 38 & 50 °c

    I dont really have time to tweak the heat settings to figure out so I was hoping someone could suggest increased or decreased heat... Or perhaps even speed

    Im printing on the Avery 1900 profile - 8 pass. Maps slowed down to - 10%

    Wet ink. Turn your heat up possibly and or check your max ink setting within your software.

    Would you say i should increase the print or pre heat? Because the post is pretty high already

    Likely pre heat....media isn't warm enough getting to your print area. If you have a pre & print....bring them up incrementally to test. We used to run into the same problem with our old Vutek solvent printers with pre and print area heat being too low.
