Hello. Can you help with right quality of PP and PET ( Zip Lock Pouches) to be used for printing on OKI 9542 and OKI8431
Will you able to share TrueFlow 7.3 patches? I would be very thankful!
Our DVD with patches are completely dead... We have tried many different DVD-ROM's... nothing helps.

All the best!
@cllr you're barking up the wrong tree, @gordo 's post is nothing to do with sexism. His cartoons are just some welcome light humour once a week. If you believe the "salary negotiation" cartoon is negative towards women, I'm guessing you must find this one negative towards men.

I also welcome gordo's cartoons, however I feel that is has missed the mark on this one. If I was off base with my interpretation, I was not alone. The comments for the interview cartoon were pointed at the cartoon message and not the people. The comments for the Salary Negotiation cartoon were directed at the female employee and had nothing to do with the "pay transparency" message Gordo was attempting to relay.
We're sorry you felt that last week's cartoon was negative commentary about women, since the target of the cartoon was actually the boss. He took advantage of her lack of knowledge about a co-worker's salary. This often occurs in non-union shops and is an experience many forum members recognize and relate to - which is likely why that cartoon received many positive "likes" from forum members.
PrintPlanet administration. I saw this on Print Planet yesterday. I am wondering if PrintPlant supports this type of negative commentary about women, like myself, in the printing industry? I have reached out to your advertisers, Avanti, Cannon, Xeikon, Koenig & Bauer, to ask if them the same question.
The joke was really funny, and not offensive to anyone who ACTUALLY sees women and men as equals.

I hope you this message finds you well

I have a question involving a goss Community press having four towers where the emergency stop button on the third tower isn't working when tested after installation. What are the likely causes of this problem?

When the series connection of the switches is inspected, it appears ok and so is the button and the associated relay.

Colour printing: matters to be noted
In the book printing china, it is common for many printed materials to use purple, generally purple ink unit price is low, such as single-sided printing need not worry, such as some packaging to double-sided printing,pay special attention to purple penetration.
I'd like to ask about the same problem, but with the polymer board, has the whole the Prescan unit been changed or just ching laser Diode?

Hi Magnus - we are just finalizing the contract with PrintIQ ourselves. I'm from Canada, and have some plans to use API's and enfocus switch to do some special automation. Just curious if you're actually up and running with PrintIQ now and how the setup process went? I have a few current users I've been talking to and figured the more the merrier so we can help one another.

Chat soon!
They have purchased the XMPie/Ustore integration but not the Prinergy integration. We have Prinergy Connect with APA, RBA and Insite, so it would seem to me that Prinergy integration should be included so we can leverage the power of RBA, but the folks at Xerox seem to have convinced them that XMPie, Ustore and Freeflow Core are the magic wands that will fix all their problems,
We are looking to go live mid March at this stage, the setup involved depends on the complexity of your shop, we have 1 offset press (down from 3 a few years ago), 2 digital presses and as with most shops, a comprehensive rage of finishing equipment from spiral binders through to Horizon finishers etc,
it's the finishing processes that really take the most setting up, as sheets through the press are quite straightforward.

Good luck with your setup, the most important advice I can give you is to keep ALL staff informed and involved in the Process
