    Screen 8600

    We seem to have developed a problem with our Screen 8600. It looks like half a bank of lasers are firing at the wrong time. I can make plates using the first bank in 32 channel mode, but in 64 channel I get this. We did replace a laser earlier in the week, but not on the bank that messing up...

    Processor Less Plates

    Hello Ray, It has been a long time. Hope all is well. I do have a question about these plates. Where does the emulsion go that falls outside of the paper. Say I have a 40 inch plate, and I am running 25 inch paper. That leaves 7.5 inches on each side of the paper. Where does that emulsion go? I...

    Help with XmPie project output

    Unfortunately it is a Windows only program. I run it in a VirtualBox VM for most of my needs. I do have a larger project every year where I need to split 100 supplied pdf files that contain 500,000+ pages that I run on our Windows server.

    New to Us Press

    Good Morning everyone, We have recently acquired a 2008 Heidelberg SM102 with CPC 2000 electronics. The operators touch screen is pretty dim and we would like to make it brighter. However, we can not seem to find any brightness/contrast settings on it. Is there a trick to get to the touchscreen...

    Smart Casing

    Some jobs are with mailing software and some are not. At this time, we have decided to have our developer create something. I know it will never be 100%, but hopefully it will be better than nothing.

    Smart Casing

    MailGuru, Thanks for the info, unfortunately we are dealing with the contents of the envelope. I to think that this is a pipe dream. This will turn out to be a manual fix. OffsetSorefront, I chose my words poorly. They want us to fix the data supplied to us from their database, not their actual...

    Smart Casing

    I have a customer that is demanding we get some kind of software to fix the casing in their database. I don't think it is about the names as much as it is about things like LLC or III, things like that. They mentioned something called DataLift, but I can not find any information on this...

    We are still using OPS. The reasons for looking at a different solution no longer exists, so we will be staying with it until we have to move.

    Indesign Spontaneous Swatch Change

    It is not the pdf that is the issue. The actual swatch in Indesign is what changed.

    screen 8300s ctp take very long time load particular size of plate.

    If it is like our 8600, those continual clicks are the weights trying to balance the drum for that size plate. I think it shows balancing on the user screen. If the weights get worn or dirty, it can have a hard time balancing and just keeps retrying. This happened to us when going from a larger...

    Indesign Spontaneous Swatch Change

    I am researching an issue that popped up with a couple of files and want to get some expert input. I have two different files supplied by the customer that has a CMYK swatch with the build of 72,91,38,28. As far as I can see, there is nothing special with this swatch in either document. We had...
