Lol. I guess so. I can't imagine there's much of that left. I still can't see how that would be advantageous. Maybe to keep the shadows slightly more open. I can't imagine it would be that significant.
I don't understand. This was a practice your plant has always done and it just became an issue now?
I'm very curious to see if this does truly solve your issue. Please post back after some time.
I have a Fuji tech rep coming to our plant today for our line issue.
My shop was a former Heidelberg shop so I assume the euclidean thing was a left over from those days. Same as distorting plates for paper stretch compensation. I had never seen that for offset before coming here. Adds rip time.
We are suddenly experiencing the same thing with Fuji LH-PL plates. Oddly for us, it is occurring at more random position on the sheet but only on the operator side, and only happening on one press. Also initially it was isolated to one unit, but no longer.
They have carefully looked the press...
Thanks. Odd that they claim a smoother vignette with euclidean? I can't see that. There's an optical mid bump associated with euclidean.
Seems some of that info is outdated (it is 20 years old) and maybe a sales kit for selling their screening technology.
It was just a blanket practice to run plates scaled 99.9% gripper to tail. I don't have the history for the reasoning, I've just never seen this before.
It's not a problem, just unusual to me with CTP and aluminum plates. There's some sheet growth on press. Probably about 1/32" over the length...
