S84ex and S86ex Sato Print Engine Repair/Rebuilds
As a Sato authorized repair center, IMI has the personnel with the expertise to apply scheduled maintenance rebuilds or diagnose and fix other problems that you may be having with your Print Engine. Please contact us so that we may discuss what type of problem you may be having.
Stage 1 rebuilds
Depending on usage, environment and/or cleaning, we recommend that after 45,000 meters of printing that your Print Engine receives what we have labeled as a “Stage 1 Kit”. This kit replaces 5 parts that Sato designates as wear items. These parts are:
- Print Head
- Platen Roller B
- Platen Roller C
- Pressure/Knurl Roller Assembly
Please note that some parts of this kit are specific to right or left hand model Print Engines. We will soon have this kit available for purchase on our Web Store. In the meantime, please contact us if you would like to purchase this kit.
Stage 2 rebuilds
Annually (depending on usage, environment and/or cleaning) we recommend you replace the 2 parts contained in our “Stage 2 kit”. These parts are:
- Dispense Bar
- Gear Box Assembly
Like the Stage 1 kit, these parts are specific to right or left hand model Print Engines. We will soon have this kit available for purchase on our Web Store. In the meantime, please contact us if you would like to purchase this kit.
M8485Se and M8490Se Sato Print Engine Repair/Rebuilds
*** Please Note that these Print Engines are in “End of Life” and as such parts will no longer be available after September of 2020 ***
The standard rebuild is designed for M8490Se and M8485Se Print Engines that do not use a ribbon. This rebuild replaces 68 parts for theM8490Se and 53 for the M8485Se that range from the platen rollers to individual screws. Please note that this rebuild does not include the Print Head itself.
If your printer uses a ribbon we will replace all of the parts in the standard rebuild and 8 additional parts in the ribbon assembly.
Should you need the print head replaced it can be incorporated in either rebuild above or by itself. If you only want to replace the print head, there are a few parts that Sato recommends we replace with it.
