Process

Product Name: Iridesse
Operating System: Not Applicable
Probably a pointless question. But confused.

In the Iridesse you have 6 stations in this order; underlay, K, C, M, Y, overlay.

But the way the printing process works on the machine is that the first toner laid down is overlay and last is underlay.

How does that work as I would assume underlay first and overlay last?

Re: Process

Inks are loaded X,K,C,M,Y,X, and the X's are interchangeable (At least Gold, White, Silver are) as an Overlay or Underlay. Clear can only be loaded as an Overlay(last slot in the path).

This pdf has some prints with examples, and admittedly, the examples at first appear to be backwards, because we all read top to bottom, but when you look at the CMYK order, it is clear it should be read bottom to top.(page 2)

Re: Process

I understand. But from the way the belt moves I would assume it goes right to left in order of printing?

Re: Process

This is what is confusing me? Why does it lay the clear overlay first? I thought it would be last

Re: Process

It is the last. The printing process begin with 6th developer station, which is located on the right side of the machine.

Re: Process

What am I missing?

The stations are L-R as follows

Underlay Black C M Y overlay

The printing goes right to left so why is the overlay laid down first?
