    Speckled print on Konica C3070

    Have you checked the stock under a loupe? I think I had similar years ago and it turned out to be dodgy 350gsm card. Under a loupe you could actually see the divets. Can you order another brand of same stock?

    "Got me out of a hole!"

    Had two experiences this week of jobs potentially turning into a disaster and managed a crazy workaround. Just thought I'd share and if anyone has similar instances. 1st - Printing x200 DL window envelopes (Conqueror Wove so pricey) Anyway only after ordering did I remember you mostly need...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    So, back in the office so had to test this and feck it to all my real orders. Versant80 here. Don't have Mondi so used 200gsm ProDesign SRA3, as far as I know near identical. Cut to A4 myself and placed in tray 2 LEF. Set to uncoated 177gsm-220gsm. Ran SIQA to set alignment before starting...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    To be fair I can see the Op's frustration. I mean yes you can guillotine but the Op never had to before with their 550. Seems crazy that the 550 could hold margins like suggested, maybe query with a tech as to why you could achieve it with 550, they may have some sort of insight we're missing...

    Static build up within machine causing registration movement

    I had the same job in again. This time less pages so I increased to 150gsm gloss, same issue. Could only get UPM Finesse from all my suppliers for short grain so called Xerox again. When I called them I was only getting about 200 sheets through before it went, typically the following day I...

    Static build up within machine causing registration movement

    If your marks are off only on one side you must be getting some extreme distortion? Are you getting it on all stocks, card & paper? Are the distances between the trims the same on both ends?

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    I'd agree with above. You really have to establish if the registration is holding. Forget these margins etc. Use the alignment sheet linked above and print x10 sheets and see if there's any movement, then you can move on to positioning.

    Xerox Versant 180 vs Ricoh C7200

    Sorry I really feel you shouldn't be putting opinions forward on other threads regarding the V180 until you solve the issues you have with your new machine. You still haven't established whether you're experiencing a faulty machine or user error but it's no help to say "alignment is all over the...

    Woes: Laminating, creasing a black or dark colour patch printed paper

    Can you crease from other side? Maybe reduce pressure on the crease. Very strange if offset printed, maybe laminated too soon before ink fully dried, any sealant used?

    KM AccurioPress C83hc

    Looking at the specs the c83hc has a standard CYMK workflow to handle proofing and previously run production colours. It's wider Gamut also allows it to hit a larger number of pantones. It's a very impressive machine, as a standard digital printer could be a nightmare to compete against.

    Help Needed: Printer for 350gsm card

    I believe Lumi's no longer available, or shortly to be. The mill switched to packaging. All my suppliers ditched it last year. https://www.printweek.com/news/article/merchants-prep-ranges-for-lumi-alternatives

    Stock issues (paper size)

    I can't say I've experienced that large a difference, maybe 1mm or 2mm max. I do generally find this is SRA3 reams that have obviously been trimmed and packed by my supplier, not direct from the mill. Generally my SRA3 is dead on from the well know brands. I often wonder if pretrimming is...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    Obviously not as good as a spectrometer but you can still use Colorcal to calibrate using colour strip and scanning in the photocopying scanner. Old fashion style.

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    @PrintingInLincs - could you post a photo of one of your prints to show this margin?

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    @tngcas Something isn't right. I use our SIQA (V80) all the time and it always places the image bang on centre of the sheet with perfect front to back registrations. The artwork files are also bang on centre. I do sometimes get a bit of front to back drift as the machine gets going, usually if...

    Xerox 550 vs Versant 180....Post installation regret.

    From your description of all your problems it all sounds like user error or faulty machine. Machine should be more than capable of what you're asking. The next move is to tackle each issue one by one with your tech to see if user or machine is causing it. PS yes they are louder but that's...

    Static build up within machine causing registration movement

    It's just a standard 130gsm gloss (Creator and UPM brands) Unfortunately I've managed to finish the job and given it take a few hundred sheets to create the problem I'm just going to have to wait until next order. I'm expecting another run of same spec soon. In the meantime I'll keep an eye on...

    Static build up within machine causing registration movement

    Yeh I think I linked that recently on another thread. He fits it in the finisher.

Sustainable Printing Goes Far Beyond Using FSC Certified or Recycled Paper
This informative paper on deinking: demand, principles, problems and solutions also explains why printing technologies are not all equally compatible with paper recycling systems; and why just a small fraction of printed material in the paper can cause difficulties.
