Xerox 800 "Adjusting Image Quality" every 60 sheets

PrintPlanet.com - Sat, 10/25/2014 - 2:42pm
Hi All.

On a Xerox 800 color press

I am running a long run black and white job on 235 gsm cover stock 17 x 11. The press stops about every 60 sheets to Adjust Image Quality.

Do I have a setting wrong somewhere? Or is this just the nature of the machine?

Error 11-05, Printmaster 46-2, please help

PrintPlanet.com - Sat, 10/25/2014 - 10:05am
The machine is not reaching the right pressure at all.
The gauge needle stops at about 5mm away from the green area and it does not go any further.

Air is escaping from the black cap which is screwed on top of the gauge with pin holes all around it. It only happens when the needle is about 5mm from the green area and the air stops escaping when it's below that point.

Compressor is always on.

Removed covers and checked all pistons, no air leak detected. Although there was a lot of moisture on the compressor gauge, when I unscrewed the bottom bit there was actually water running down.

Is it a problem with the gauge itself or is there an air leak somewhere we couldn’t find?

We just can’t figure out what the problem is.

Any help will be appreciated.

Many thanks

InDesign to Illustrator

PrintPlanet.com - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 9:14pm
Greetings,

Does anyone have a magic formula for getting files that were put together in InDesign CS5.5 to Illustrator CS5 and still have them somewhat editable?

Scenario:
Label printer wants Illustrator files. I don't know why they can't use InDesign files. That would solve everything.
Text in Illustrator sucks, so I use InDesign. However, if I export to EPS or PDF (same difference I guess) and open in Illustrator it ends up with a billion layers with every spec of everything in the universe on it's own layer.

I don't want a discussion on how Illustrator is not a PDF editor. I know that.
I already have many labels set up in InDesign and don't want to remake in Illustrator.

This would be OK it it were simply CMYK, but there is a white ink layer involved that gets mixed in with all the CMYK layers and it would take 10 years to separate everything.

I've made a separate white and CMYK PDF from InDesign and linked those to a 2 layer Illustrator file. I *think* that should work if nothing has to be altered. They have to make a die-line for alternating front/back labels. I don't know why the die-line can't be made in InDesign.

Thoughts?
Thanks,
Keith

PS/ There was a time when I partied on Friday nights :(

Color profiling. Where to start with a new digital press.

PrintPlanet.com - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 8:41pm
So you get your press installed. It comes with spectro for profiling as well as an inline spectro for color consistency.(J75 for me) Does installer have a standard set-up to go through with all? Do you do your own or have a preferred method. Say you want to match G7 proofs off of your Epson that you use for your offset presses. Curious to what you guys have done. Thanks in advance.

question for PDF specialist

PrintPlanet.com - Fri, 10/24/2014 - 8:56am
Hi,
To enhance the color quality of (on a iGen4) our printed material we are investigating the existing automatic workflow to create pdf. files. Now it appears that we are using a pdf version / setting customized by our supplier (it is not a pdfX3 or so). The attached document contains the settings from the user interface. Is there anything sensible to say about this? I am not that familiar with pdf. settings, indesign, pit stop and all these things, but I do know the theories of color management.
Any comment is welcome! Attached Files
