In this page you will find the most frequent asked questions about Flexa products.
The ideal lamination pressure may vary depending on the type of vinyl. We do not suggest to go beyond led 3 or 4 of our pressure display.
In the case of machines with mechanical comparator or digital display (Formula and Millennium) we recommend to work at a pressure between 0.1 and 0.2.
The ideal pressure can change depending on the type of forex. We do not suggest to go beyond led 4 of our pressure display.
In the case of machines with mechanical comparator or digital display (Formula / Millennium) we recommend to work at a pressure between 0.4 and 0.6.
We recommend using water and neutral soap, or isopropyl alcohol as an alternative. Solvents could damage the rubber. Avoid damp cloth on the roller for a long period of time.
No parameter precisely defines the tensioning of the material, as each material has its mechanical characteristics that also vary according to temperature and humidity.
As a general rule, the optimal adjustment is when material stretches on the upper roller and advances smoothly, without wrinkles.
The top roller takes about 20 minutes to reach the temperature of 30°C, about 28 minutes for 40°C and about 40 minutes for 50°C.
The brake rings are probably worn and need to be replaced. Contact our support service.
The crop mark mode allows you to cut pieces of different lengths. Thanks to the sensor, the machine reads the mark, printed with the most common RIP software, and stops in the position we have set offset 1 and offset 2 (start and end printing).
To achieve greater precision and speed during the working cycle, the optimum size of the crop marks is 3 mm.
Miura can also handle 2 mm of crop marks.
We recommend that the speed is the same or higher than the value of the feed acceleration.
For general applications, to reach a good accuracy, the recommended speed is 50-60% (i.e. blueback or vinyl).
The commonly accepted maximum thickness is 1.2 mm.
Miura can also cut flexible materials with larger thicknesses, in this case, please contact our service.
The "Accu View" functions allow maximum cutting precision. If this function is set, the transparent tamper locks the material in position with the first pressure on the pedal, allowing it to be adjusted to the optimal cutting line; the cut is made by the second pressure on the pedal.
This function can be activated or disactivated as desired.
The maximum thickness allowed to cut is 1.8 mm.
