Re: Ink Flaking off around Dieline

That looks like a 'wet trapping' issue more common to water- and solvent-based inks, where ink prints over a previous color that is not completely dry. So, aside from adhesion issues or varnish quality, you might want to make sure you are curing well.

Re: Label Shop Live

There is not a spot for inventory count. I am going to add it. I've got a running list, so far: Indication of dyne pen to use on treat tests Mechanism for inventory count, including end seals Rewind chart for what the customer wants Place for press speed Place for web path Places for dryer temps I'l...

Re: Label Shop Live

Hi Longtime,

There's is a spot for dynes, but not the pen. I'll add that.

Press speed, yes, and I'll make it clearer, because it just says "Speed", right now.

Web path is an excellent idea! I'll do something about that and provide an update.

Many thanks

I can't tell you any details, but I have a client with a Tresu. It is, by far, the most incredible, serious beast I have ever seen, in a good way. I can't speak to operating it, but I appreciate what it does.

Label Shop Live

Hi everybody, As much as we talk about shop documents, controlling the process and all that stuff, I thought I share where I am with a project I'm close to done with. There is no sound on the video, intentionally, and I did not speed it up, but I moved quickly in the interest of time. It's not a dem...

Re: Press repair services near the great lakes

That's a tough one. Guys like that don't fall out of trees. It's difficult to be independent as a tech, so most of them work for manufacturers. I've run into one independent guy in my whole career, and he had a head injury and was positively out of his mind. I wouldn't recommend him. There may be so...

Re: Printing on pressure sensitive tape

I thought I'd mention that when I am looking for something like this, I consider the vendors and manufacturers that are likely to have come across these things. For example, if I want to know the best solution for cleaning ink off of my equipment, I might ask the manufacturer of my ink what they use...

Re: Turnbar Help

Allow me to elaborate, a little. With some machines, you can adjust tension with a knob or button, so adjusting tension becomes a normal thing. With other machines, tension is "fixed", with the ratio of the speed between the exit nip and entrance nip being regulated by a mechanical device,...

Re: Printing on pressure sensitive tape

What I have seen used in these situations are idlers with a highly textured surface, almost like the surface is impregnated with little diamonds. The idea being that the surface is low-stick and only the high points of the surface touch the adhesive.

You can take a sample put water on it and then use the laminate material over it and run a speed roll ( tool for mounting) or smooth out with something similar

Re: Back side printing station issue IWASAKI

It looks like the plate is not travelling at the same speed as the surface of the substrate. Your overall repeat is probably long or short, depending on which way the web is travelling in this image. If left-to-right, the image is short. If right-to-left, the image is long. Check your repat. If that...
