The conversion process is really simple and straightforward, there are just a few things to note:
• Prints produced with TR2 inks may differ slightly from those that were printed with TR inks.
• TR ink and TR2 ink can’t be used together and only the same ink combination you are currently using is supported - your VG’s/SG's current ink combination (VG - CMYKCMYK, CMYKLcLmLk, or CMYKLcLmLkWh, SG - CMYK) cannot be changed when upgrading to TR2 ink.
• Some previous data settings on the RIP may need to be changed to meet the requirements of the upgraded VG-640/540, SG-300/540. Settings from before the conversion may not support TR2 ink.
• Ensure you have your kit containing new TR2 ink (a full ink set which matches your current configuration), Cleaning Liquid Pouch for TR2 ink (1 pouch), Manual Cleaning Kit for TR2 ink (1 bottle) before converting1. You need these items readily available in order to complete the conversion.
