    Xerox V80 NCR marking Transfer Belt

    Hi, Running NCR on our V80 for the last 5 years and the last two times its damaged the transfer belt which is causing this mark. The first time it happened I'd took Xeroxs advice and put in a very old 2nd BTR to preserve my good one, something I'd never bothered with before. It marked like this...

    Static build up within machine causing registration movement

    Xerox (Versant) 2nd BTR streaking marks work around

    Sleeking Queries

    Hi, Query 1 - I know the basic sleeking is main print, soft lam, sleek area overprint then foil. Has anyone tried sleek area overprint then foil then over print again on unfoiled/ or foiled areas? I've seen a few "sales pitches" online claiming to print on the actual foil for better images...
