    AB Dick 9910XCS & T-51 Issue

    As I recall the T-51 sits on a bracket with three bolts. Those should be loosened than adjust the side turnbuckles for overall pressure and side to side stripe. Snug the lower bolts and recheck.

    Heidelberg SBBK Cylinder question

    I use old film under any cutting rule that is not getting through; it has less chance to fail before the end of a run. The best way would be to spot make ready under the jacket but rolling the jacket off and on is a chore and more guesswork than one platen. I suppose to do it correctly you would...

    Heidelberg SBBK Cylinder question

    You're noticing the characteristics of how a cylinder press operates vs a platen. A platen has to develop enough force for the total area being impressed all at one moment whereas the cylinder accomplishes the task throughout its revolution cycle. A score on a platen requires force equal to the...

    UV coating and scoring

    Assuming you mean crease as opposed to score: Either way doesn't seem to pose any problems. It seems easy and fast enough to check. There's no way imo that coating will injure the Morgana; likewise, run scored sheet through the (offline?) coater.

    Double fold on a booklet

    That's never happened. I've had fair results drop feeding into our Horizon stitcher, trimmer, folder set to half fold.

    Did the customer ever see a booklet like this or did another design professional just try to out-do their peers again?

    How Would You Do This Job?

    You might have a sheet tabbed at both edges. You would want to crease for a hand fold while die cutting the tabs if so. I can't imagine machine folding a tabbed front edge. What kind of qty?

    AB Dick 9870 - Image/Text Dropout?

    The blanket (to) impression is set via the hole beneath the handwheel. You should have an allen wrench with an angle (45°). Best practice is just enough impression (pressure) for a good print. It "should" be adjusted every job, if the paper thickness changes. Tight for bond, way out for heavy...

    AB Dick 9870 - Image/Text Dropout?

    Blanket low spot(s) comes to mind. Do you have blanket fix? You blanket is a 3 ply? That's about .065 as I recall. They tend to smash pretty quickly compared to the 5 ply used with Itek & Ryobi. Confirm that you plate chemistry is fresh (enough) and at proper temperature; probably 85 F. Don't...

    Ryobi 3302 intermittently skewed feeding

    Glad to hear you found your solution. Fwiw I spent a lifetime with the lightweight springs. Perhaps text weight would not curl up against them as opposed to the heavier set. For the last three years in a new shop they basically insist on the heavy springs. I can't win all my battles so that is...
