Most wide format printing engines have the potential to produce excellent output quality, both in terms of resolution and colour gamut. But to achieve the highest possible quality day in and day out, printing companies must make preparations before the device is installed to establish prime conditions for its performance.
All large format printing engines are checked by installation technicians to make sure that they are placed on a stable and even surface. However large format flatbed printers will especially benefit from a specially prepared and super-even, solid and extremely level floor. This is to ensure the exact placement of droplets on the substrate at speed, because any slight unevenness of the floor will be transmitted to the printhead when it travels quickly over the surface. If the droplets aren’t placed with micrometre precision, the image quality in terms of sharpness will be compromised.
