[BioC] Overriding maPrintTip method

I have a set of custom spotted arrays that were manufactured using 
different 8 print tips, where each print tip spotted probes for 6 
subgrids. There are 12 rows and 4 columns of subgrids, with each subgrid 
containing 21 x 21 spots. After reading the data using, for  example,


>  brain.gname<-read.marrayInfo(chip7.12,info.id=c(1,6),labels=6,skip=21211)


I used the marrayNorm function maNorm to normalize by PrintTip, but the 
default seems to consider each subgrid as being printed by a different 
print tip (thus there are 48). How can I change the print tip assignment 
so that the actual print tip is used rather than those calculated by 
calling maPrintTip? maPrintTip does not seem to be a slot anywhere. Thanks.
