    That's about it. You can grease the wiper rail and that fixes wiper jams but nothing else really needs it.

    My Mimaki says that I should not lubricate ANYTHING on the machine ever. I also have a roland cutter-plotter cx24 that never saw any lubrication ever and it glides as smooth as f. sorry. ant it's probably ...15 y old?

    Lubrication is good but you need to wipe the rail clean, you should not see or feel any grease on the rails after lubrication whatsoever.

    The Mutohs do have cleaning and greasing the rail as a routine maintenance item. You are correct though that it is a very thin layer of grease you want to lay down. Putting too much on can cause issues.

    There's not much to lube really, but there is plenty to clean and my visiting Mutoh engineer said it doesn't hurt to soak the pad in cleaning/flush once in a while. I also clean the wiper (back and front) and the capping seals before I print (usually 3/4 times a week)
