    Plate size (in the Y direction) is longer than the set value.

    Have you measured the plate to see if they are cut to the correct size? We have a Screen 8800 and every once and awhile we get the error and sure enough the plates are off a mm or two.We just go into the interface on the platesetter and adjust the "Y" axis length to the plate size that is off...

    At my company. SM-52, CD-102's. Lead pressmen $26 an hour. That is the wage, it does not include the benefits. They can get up to 4 weeks vacation and get insurance on top of that wage. So off the top of my head if you include all wages and benefits you are in the $45.00 an hour area.
