    AB Dick 9870 - Image/Text Dropout?

    The chemistry was my first thought when it wasn't holding. My problem is that I don't have the chemicals on hand right now to change them. We unfortunately have to be frugal in what we buy at my company and just getting it for when I need it is the mantra instead of having it here and not worrying.

    AB Dick 9870 - Image/Text Dropout?

    So, it doesn't matter where the image is on the blanket. With a brand new plate, the text starts dropping out within a couple hundred impressions.

    AB Dick 9870 - Image/Text Dropout?

    Hello all. I have a question about the AB Dick 9870 press. We used to have a regular Pressman who ran our presses and I was getting trained to use them as a backup to him. Well, he was let go before we got into situations like I have right now. It really baffles me that this happens. I make a...
