Signature Page Feature (FC 8B4053)

You can use forms up to 54 inches long. You must have the Signature Page feature (8B4053) installed. This longer form size requires a receptacle (a tub) to hold the forms when they exit Printer 1. If a forms jam occurs in Printer 1, it stops printing immediately. However, Printer 2 continues to advance the forms to the top of the next page, using the forms that have collected in the tub.

The tub should be placed in the print path between the stacker of Printer 1 and the Buffer/Flipper Unit. Ensure that the stacker table in Printer 1 is down and the tub is in place before you begin the threading procedure. Once the tub is in the correct position, you can lower the foot pads to prevent the tub from accidentally moving. (For dual simplex printing, the tub must be moved out of the print path so that the stacker table in Printer 1 can move freely. Raise the foot pads to move the tub.)

For this feature, the Printer Definition -> Printer -> Set Up -> Printer 1 to Printer 2 Distance configuration item needs to be increased by 54 inches.

After you thread Printer 1, thread the forms over the top roller on the tub and between the tub and the side roller. Leave enough slack in the forms in the tub. Thread the Buffer/Flipper Unit as you would normally thread it.

When you are using signature page forms and printing has stopped, whether because of a jam or a need for new supplies such as toner or forms, the print job restarts at the defined recovery point when you press Start.
