Until recently we were mainly exposing azura ts plates with our suprasetter without any problems.
To reduse costs after a lot of trial and error,we are now exposing fitprimus positive plates and process them with a sirio 85 ctp plate processor.
Since the first set up,the blankets are not clear enough.
I've attached an image cause i can't describe it in exact words.
We've tested the plates with the nail remover plate tester :-P (that semi transparent liquid ladies use to remove the color from their nails,not quite sure how it's called) and plates are fine.
Also this thing isn't obvious in paper,it's only in the blankets.
Another thing is the white ''patches'' on the upper side of the plate,towards the end of the paper in the whole length of the sheet-there are four large of them in the image if you give a closer look-
They also don't cause any problems-at least problems we can see- but they are there in every plate in all the blankets!
Is any one experiencing similar problems?
Here's the link with a blanket i'm talking about.
Thanks in advance!

Looking around for a replacement for my old Xerox DC5000. I'm not flush with funds. As these are getting older now I can pick one up at a relatively good price.
I also have a Xerox 700 here (which is rubbish) how does the Konica compare for registration, image straightness, rolling solids, colour consistency over a long(ish) run.
(with both my 5000 and 700). All the usual stuff. One thing I do like about the Konica is it is spec for 350 gsm stock. Unlike most of the light production machines (300 gsm). One thing I don't like is availability of parts. (might be ok now but 2-3 years time?). This is an ongoing problem with my DC 5000.
I realize service is a big factor but from past experience this is one thing it is very hard to gauge until after you have had a machine for awhile.
Any advice much appreciated. Thanks Simon

Now if I try to put it on any heavier it starts sticking together. Does this sound like they have a different coating, or does their machine have better drying, so that they can run it heavier?
I'm looking for a SRA3 12 station collator, likely be handling coated digitally printed stock - don't have a big budget though, so will be scraping around the used market! Would the Horizon AC1200 do the job (friction fed)? Any machines I should look at/avoid?
I have four in varing formats, all of which will need the batterys replaced, come with cases, three with the calibration shoes.
2- With Standard Aperture, 3.4 mm
1 - With Microspot Aperture, 1.6mm x 3.2mm
1- With Small Aperture, 2 mm
All calibrate and function properly and have been tested with repeatable results. Each of these units were removed from a functional print plant that was closed. PM me with any questions or offers

We are at present using CMYK work flow with final PDF in version 1.3 being sent to RIPs.
As we are printing in multiple presses (of different makes) by changing to a RGB workflow, we feel we can have IN RIP CMS to convert to CMYK with seperate profiles for each press. Will this help? Is anyone following RGB workflow, if so, please share your plus and minus.
Also we are thinking of moving to PDF 1.5 workflow. This is to overcome the hanging of the PREFLIGHT software which tries to flatten transparencies in files that contain hundreds of transparency vector objects. Again, is anyone following PDF version 1.5 workflow, if so, please share your plus and minus.
Thanks in advance
Thank you in advance,

I have a problem with ink duct settings. The settings which come up when a job is loaded are way off, completely useless. The pressminder says that the black and magenta sweep and key settings typically need bumping up by 10-20%, cyan by 20-30%, and the yellow needs reducing to a third or a quarter of what is set, in order to begin to achieve a print that looks right.
I have checked the ink information supplied by the rip and found it to be at least proportional to what you would expect - send the same image for each separation (a calibration strip) and the ink information is also the same. However, load up that job and the ink duct settings are different for each colour - the black and cyan are just subtly different from each other, the magenta is roughly doubled and the yellow roughly quadrupled.
Scouring the CP2000 pc I came across some ink files in C:\database\cpcsaves, iirc, Lastink, ink1 and ink2. These contain the same ink duct information as sent by the rip for the last couple of active jobs, but then also include a data section called something like "Area Coverage With Modification", containing the same ink key fields but with disproportionately distorted values. Much like the settings seen in the operator panel.
Where is this modification coming from?
I found 9 memory presets under Ink Settings, but none have been set. The basic "R" set would seem to be all that is applying, but I cannot find how to alter that, if that is indeed the cause of the problem.
Please can anybody help to shed some light on this problem?
