Registration Problem

Has anyone had problems with; I guess you would call it repeatablity. The press has had to adjust more than .004 to get registered.
My partner here has seen this before, where if you run different size plates it can mess up the platesetter for awhile.
Anyone hear of that?

Re: Registration Problem

changing plate sizes shouldn't change registration at all..

are you doing inline punching?

If that mean the platesetter is punching it, then yes.
We also manually punch the plate bending holes.

Re: Registration Problem

I think Cory was asking are you punching the press notches internally? It seems your internal punch is just for plate mounting on the CtP but you are manually punching the press notches off line. Off line punching can add to the error. Does you offline punch center the plate or side register the plate? What presses are you imaging for?

Re: Registration Problem

Are the plates needing to move in the same direction or is it a plate to plate fit issue?

the only time I've seen plates not fit it was always a stock issue.
 

Color Optimized?

Ink

Color is in demand in all types of documents, making color management a critical part of Digital Printing 5.0. Managing color on one device/press can be an easy task with the correct tools and processes. But managing color to ensure printed pages are consistent and repeatable across the different substrates and color gamuts of toner and inkjet can be a much bigger challenge. Properly implemented color management workflows can help achieve consistent color results across multiple devices. Although many end-customers are claiming satisfaction with “pleasing color,” two challenges are still in play. Link to Article
