Feeding new forms through the printer

You can splice the new forms you want to use, tractored or tractorless, to the old forms. Doing this allows you to switch forms without manually reloading the printer.

  1. Splice a new supply of forms to the trailing edge of the old supply before it enters printer 1. The forms will most likely be of a different size, so line up the forms at the front edge - that closest to the operator.
  2. Open all paper guides, tractor units, and feeding units in both printer 1 and printer 2 to their widest position:

  3. Swing the roller (3) into the open position by pressing down on (1) and (2).
    Note:
    The following graphic shows the Infoprint 4100 Models HD1/2, HS2, and HD3/4. The Infoprint 4000 models look slightly different.

  4. Open the gate by pushing in (4) and pulling up and out on (5).
  5. Engage the tractorless pressure roller (6) by moving it into the down position.
  6. Press the Forms Feed button on the printer 1 control panel to feed the forms through printer 1 until you have enough slack between printer 1 and printer 2 to feed the forms through printer 2.
  7. Press the Forms Feed button on the printer 2 control panel to feed the forms through printer 2.
