New to the community and need a little help. Machine is running great in terms of production. We're anywhere from 15,000-18,000 sheets a day out of it! My understanding of these machines is that when an image is layed on to paper, it uses the inboard and leading edge as the registration? Because we cut our own paper, the sizing can vary around an 1/8 in on a daily basis. This presents a problem because when we are cutting and assembling our paper we use the trailing edge as the registration point, so it needs to be the same every time. Since the paper has a varience in size, the trailing edge margin changes and messes up our assembly process. Is there a way that I could get the printer to register off of the trailing edge so it has the same margin every single time? If any one needs pictures to see what I am talking about, I would be happy to upload some.

Thank you for the reply.
I figured that this was the case, but I wanted to make sure. With the way the paper is being cut, we won't be able to eliminate all of the varience that happens within a pallet of paper.
That brings me to my next question: can you register the paper off of the outboard side instead of the inboard?
Thanks for the response.
Orginially that was what I was thinking in terms of getting single sided jobs corrected. Unfortunatly it wouldn't fix the issue for double sided jobs. In terms of registration on the LE and IB we are perfect, the paper just isn't. Might have to ask our paper cutter to take his time.
Thanks you for all your help, I have my questions answered!
