Roland versacamm registration problem

Post by Tractor boy » Thu Mar 09, 2017 7:43 pm

Hello to one and all, first time on this site... I work for a small printing company that has had a Versacamm 540i from new and is now around 6 years old.
Great machine for what we do and have not had any issues apart from having the cyan/black head changed for a new one around 2 years ago.
For the last few weeks we have been getting slight registration problems with the magenta...ie if we were printing black text you could see a slight outline of the text in magenta.
Does anybody have any thoughts on this issue?
Regards Tractor Boy.

1) set the head in lower position

2) make a test print which combines horizontal and vertical hairlines of different primary inks (CMYK) and print them in various print modes with Density Control Only for color management. Scan in high resolution and post the images here.

Sample:

________
________
________

And then the same in vertical.

Right. Your heads need manual alignment. Both are off by a significant amount.

Hi mrtn.

Thank you for taking at look at our problem for us.

Is this an adjustment we are able to do or is this an engineers job?

Regards Tractor Boy

You'll be better off with an engineer doing it.
