Question about Canon imageRUNNER C3220 Color Copier
I want to use a polyesther label that has a maximum temperature of 200 degrees. Will it be ok with the fusing temperature of the Canon Colorpass Z3000? The label is made for laser printers.
The minimum temp of the Canon IR 3220 copier is 190 degress celcius which is 374 farenheit. You did not indicate if the temp you are referring to for your label is F or C. I tend to believe it is the latter (C) if as you say the label is designed for laser printers. Laser printers typically use a high temp (like the 3220) to "fuse" or bond the toner to the paper. So, if it is indeed a celcius reference you should be ok. Use the bypass tray to feed the paper. The copier will most likely ask you the size and type of paper you are using. As far as "type" of stock you are using, start out with "PLAIN".If you indicate "HEAVY" or even "LABELS" as to the type of stock you are running, the temp will go up slightly as heavier or thicker paper requires a higher temp to properly bond the toner to the paper. I would run one sheet at a time. This allows the fuser temp to "recover" and bounce back to the original temp as anything run thru it will draw heat away.The heavier the stock the larger the depletion of heat as the paper runs thru. That is why there is a "heavy " setting. If your average customer ran card stock paper thru the bypass tray and indicated heavy (as they should) the copier would raise its temp and slow down in an effort to properly melt/fuse/bond the toner to the paper and maintain the temp despite the thicker paper's tendency to absorb large amounts of heat. I hope I made sense here. Or at least gave you enuff info for you to better understand the process and therefore make your own conclusions. If I helped you please take the time to let "FIXYA" know. :-) Good Luck. .............SPINAL
