    hello,
    is it possible to use profiles from SJ-645EX in VP540? Same conditions, same indoor temperature and humidity.I know that Versa won't let to load this profiles (bad model error) but maybe I can create new profiles in media library using the same settings as in SJ profiles. The question is if it's gonna work, I mean print nice, normal colors just like f.ex. on profiles made exactly for VP540. I think this machines have the same heads. But maybe sth else counts?

    and the second question. Does increasing of the head speed reduce its lifetime?
    regards

    I wouldn't think you could transfer profiles - but they might be a starting place to tweak from. Did you do your own profiling? Or are you using the Versaworks generic...or vendor profiles?

    I don't think so.

    Isn't the SJ-645ex a 6 color machine and the VP a 4 color?

    Short answer is NO. Media configurations are unique to the specific printer model.

    2nd Question: Head speed is not correlated to lifespan of the head. The number of shots is, but not the carriage speed.

    Sorry, the profiles are different (6 color vs 4 color). You should be getting great colors with your VP540 especially if you upgraded the firmware to get the Intelligent Pass. What profile and media are you using...this makes a HUGE difference in colors. Do you do your own specific profiles for the VP540 and using a specific media? You will have a hard time matching exactly the SJ645 colors.

    hello all, thank you very much for your answers. I've to types of profiles- generic from Versa, original from Roland for ecosolMax and one made for an exact ink I use (Esmax) and exact vinyl (kemica digit). I've just upgraded Versa and had no time for testings but earlier (I work on orajet 3164 mat-for fair) I used Kemica profile instead of original roland for orajet because on kemica profile I had better colors and max ink usage was 180% (profile from roland 230%). So everything looked great but... but this profile has only 720x720 dpi printing quality and no RIPC:( 720x720 is too much- machine is slow- about 4-5 m2/h, 320(or520)x720 makes 9m2/h. It's quite good. So now or I can wait for new profiles from my machine seller, or call for profiling (very expensive) or try to use built-in Versa profiles or try to work with nice profiles from SJ (my friend has few made specially for him). But if it doesn't work, I've to think about something else:(
    I'll try to use original profiles after upgrading Versa, maybe colors would be better, we'll see:) And I'll try to make some experiments with head speed, maybe it's gonna print faster:)
    however thanks for all replies-I'll be watching this forum- it's a nice place full of usefull info:)
    regards
    Karol

    You may want to go from PrePress US to Max Impact - below where you get the profile list on Versaworks...this put down more ink and allow you to up the speed a bit...hope it helps.
