Before installing the printer ribbon, you must first adjust the printing guide settings appropriately
Quantum printers will accept cards with thicknesses from 0.76 mm to 1 mm.
To install the cards:
It is possible to place the cards back into the card feeder positioned on the printer, even while it is in operation. You must be careful not to insert cards below the level indicated.
Similarly, you can remove the personalized cards from the re-stacker placed on the printer while it is working. Here also, do not in any case attempt to remove cards below the level indicated.
The purpose of the cleaning rollers is to eliminate residual dust on the front and back sides of the cards before they are inserted into the printer. As a result, these rollers are systematically dirty. That is the sign that they are effective.
When it becomes necessary to clean the inside of the printer (after every 900 cards inserted), the NEED CLEANING message will appear on the display, and the LED will be lit up in red.
This message is a warning that tells the operator that it is time to proceed to the cleaning cycle.
To perform an advanced cleaning of the Quantum, we recommend that you clean the card feed rollers in addition to the basic maintenance of the inside of the printer.
The Quantum is equipped with a removable and reversible encoding module, independent from the printing module.

Position A = standard position = chip contact station in top position and magnetic track encoder in bottom position.
Position B = magnetic track encoder in top position and chip contact station in bottom position.

Evolis recommends that you empty the reject box on a regular basis, for example, each time that you change the ribbon or that you maintain the equipment.
Your Quantum printer can be equipped with a centralized locking system available as an option, that once activated, will prevent access to the entire system (blank and printed cards, ribbons, and reject box).
The printhead is a fragile part of your printer. To avoid damaging it:
A change in printing quality and even permanent damage to the printhead could result.
