The flexibility of a printer is bound by the carriage configuration that it has. In order to have

more possible configurations in a carriage, there are some printers that have a Movable Slot

System (MSS). A MSS allows to move the printheads in pen direction in order to achive different

carriage configurations. However, it has some mechanical tolerances that need to be calibrated

at each possible position of the MSS by aligning the printer.

In this invention, we describe a methodology to preserve the alignment values between

the different carriage configurations that can be obtained with a MSS. Its main advantage is the

transparent and automatic adjustment of the printhead configurations without the need of extra

steps to calibrate, obtaining an equivalent Print Quality (PQ) than before the change.
