net order driver gives me no overspill . I see in the hotfolder driver you can set the DPI to 320 which whiukd give me a little overspill and eliminate borders.

I have heard it is possible to use this driver does anyone know how ?

Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure I understand the question, but I know that in the past I needed to purchase the hot folder software from Noritsu. Maybe that helps?

    I don't think I understand the way Nortisu hotfolder is set up

    On my old printer I would use timestone to print to bitmap (JPG) then my printers hotfolder would convert it to the way the printer outputs its files. I could drop any JPG into the hot folder and the printer would run it. Point being, if a program didn't have the print drivers the hot folder would take care of it

    Noritsu has a hot folder THEN you need a print driver for the hot folder ?? Whats the point of the hot folder?

    I think ,I just don't get it , I appreciate the response

    in NeoPack, there is a printer named Noritsu Hot Folder. That prints the images to bitmap, and includes a file that holds config information for the printer to use. The Hot Folder software from Noritsu reads the fileand takes over from there. I think we're talking the same things in different vocabularies...

    Thanks for the reply

    "in NeoPack, there is a printer named Noritsu Hot Folder. That prints the images to bitmap, and includes a file that holds config information"

    Yes, is there a way to get nortisu EZ controller to see the config information ?
    Are you saying I need Noritsu Hotfolder to read the config info ?

    Thanks again Tommi

    No problem Craig. You need the Hot Folder software to read the config information and that pushes it to EZ controller.

    There isn't a download available per se, but we can get it to you. You need to own a copy of FileMaker Pro. If you have FileMaker, I will pass the request along; we may need to connect via TeamViewer to set it up. I'm about to get on a plane, so you likely won't hear from me again tonight, but I will check back in the morning.

    Thanks for your help Tommi.

     I have been working with Mark and Noritsu to solve my border / white line issue. I was told that hot folder software was not necessary to use the hot folder print driver buy a colleague that runs the same printer with time stone. From this thread I have learned that is not possible

    I do not have FIlemaker but will look into getting it . I want to get set up on TS portal in the near future

    This was resolved buy moving the cut mark "out of spec" in EZ controller. Now if I print from EZ controller I get the small border but not from Timestone.

    I only use timestone so it is a non issue for me now but figured I would share in case someone else runs into the same issue

    Not resolved smaller border in lead edge now

    Solution is to create overspill from net order . If anyone knows how to do this pleas let me know .

    Hi Craig,

    Try checking the paper fitting flag again now that the alignment is
    close and see if that does the trick.

    Hey mark

    I tried that with no luck.

    Waitimg for Noritsu US to hear back from Japan if it is possible to magnify via net order.

    I have 10 Noristu R2R machines and could get some serious use out of the Noritsu Hot Folder application. Is it possible to get a copy?

    Hi Adam,

    Timestone has a built in driver that writes to the Noritsu Hot Folder
    software. However, we don't distribute the actual Hot Folder software
    itself. That would need to come from Noritsu.
