Post Inserting (KM Pro951)

We don't have the PI-502 Post Inserter on our Pro951, however the driver facilitates inserting blank sheet/s after specified pages, from a paper tray (pre-engine). I have used this occasionally for inserting tinted slip sheets between sets. IIRC it doesn't count as a click.

Any thoughts on using this as a PI to insert colour digital sheets (produced on the C4080) into a B/W job?
My obvious concern is the colour sheets going through a hot fuser.

We do this with prints from our C6085 going through out 6136 without any problem. We use tray 4 for best feeding results as that is the straightest path.

Many thanks @jwheeler
In your configuration, am I right in thinking the fusing temperature would be similar, both the C6085 and B/W 6136 using Simitri toner.
Whereas on our older Pro951, the fusing temperature is likely to be higher than that the colour prints from the C4080 being PI'd were fused at - or do you think this is a non-issue?

I don't think it will be an issue, but just give it a shot! You won't know for sure unless you test it. At worst, you'll lose a few prints.

@jwheeler, not sure if you can help with this and what I'm doing wrong?
  • In the Pro951 driver Page Settings tab, when selecting "insert blank sheet after page" and then setting the page number, a conflict is detected if the paper tray is set to anything other than PI Tray 1 or PI Tray 2
  • In other words, it is not allowing any of the paper trays to be used as a PI Tray
  • For example, on the first line, I set Print (2sided) Page numbers 1-2 from Tray 1, Tinted Card.
    • Then on the second line I set Insert Blank Page after Page 2 from Tray 4, Number of Sheets: 1
    • At this stage, page 2 is removed from line 1 as the driver is disallowing the page number "2" to exist twice (detecting a conflict - which would be correct if we were trying to print page 2 from two different trays, but incorrect when trying to insert a blank sheet after page 2
Any thoughts?

@Ynot_UK , unfortunately I don't have a 951 to test, but I just tried that on my 6136 which has the same type of KM print driver and it allowed it. Might be a glitch with that older driver. A quick fix would be to add a blank page in your document after page 2, and assign that to come from tray 4.

Thanks as always @jwheeler. It is a thing with the older driver, as it works on the 1100 driver which I installed an hour ago to test... although sadly the 1100 driver won't talk to the 951 (even a test page just hangs in 'data receiving' mode). I'll do a work around this time, this was a regular B/W job which has just gained scatterings of colour pages, so I've put feelers out for a PI-502 for the future. Thanks again.
