KM 1075 / 1085 vs. Xerox Versant 80 vs Ricoh C7100

PrintPlanet.com - 56 min 37 sec ago
Hi Everyone,

We have had a 700i for 3.5 years and are looking at an upgrade. Only KM have come to the party as yet. I know a couple of businesses who have the Km 1075 and only have minor paper probs. Has anyone got a KM 1085 and how are you getting along with it??

As for the Versant 80, Xerox are slow coming to the party and I only have info from PrintEx 15 in Sydney 2 weeks ago. Is anyone running a Versant 80 and how are you getting along with this press also??

And the Heidelberg Ricoh C7100 I'm concerned about Servicing with no other Heidelberg Ricoh C7100's down here atm.

Cutting Blankets

PrintPlanet.com - Thu, 05/28/2015 - 10:23pm
is anyone else using a cad machine to cut blankets instead of ordering cyrels? we have begun to do so on the generic mail panel knock outs. it has been a troubling experience so far with distortion and figuring out the best way to set up the files but we seem to be on the right track now. Is anyone else doing this on a daily basis? any tips or suggestions would be helpful.

Ricoh 7110x further adventures

PrintPlanet.com - Thu, 05/28/2015 - 3:50pm
Another week on and a ton of teething problems including the fiery randomly spinning the last sheet in a book or calendar 180 degrees. The biggest bug is the paper jamming as mentioned on here buy a couple of other guys, mainly caused by the most stupid design in the history of digital printers. Between the main unit and the feed trays and the delivery units paper jams across them so you can't pull out the trays in the main unit, normally you can get at the sheets from each end and remove but not on this baby. It has built in rollers to turn which is supposed to clear the paper away, however they don't work. We are also having registration issues with the back edge jumping around. All recommended stocks from the Ricoh library by the way. And don't start me off on how white the white toner isn't, somebody must have said lets not bother making it opaque so it shows the Colorado of the paper through easily. Anyway print quality is nothing short of exceptional! And that is the reason worth sticking with it!

Changing job file server - Error: Unable to convert...

PrintPlanet.com - Thu, 05/28/2015 - 3:39pm
We're relocation all customer job files to a new server. I followed the instructions in a PDF we got from our Fuji rep on setting up for 2012, really the same on previous versions.

I changed the path under preferences for customer data location, rampage box can see it. The old server was on a domain, new one is not as we're getting away from that. I'm not certain if there was a way a setting to specify rampage to use creds for connecting or if the logged in user that rampage is running under have to have access?

Laser Point ll ablative film on Esko CDI

PrintPlanet.com - Thu, 05/28/2015 - 6:15am
Hi all,

Today I tried this product in an Esko CDI and it didn't come up as expected... some areas are not fully clear, also one can see some "dirtiness" in gradients, etc. Do you know the exact settings to use with this film? Specially I'd like to know the intensity of the laser which I think is the problem,.

Thanks
