Hey guys. First-time poster here, so bear with me.
We're a very small print shop that does magnetic calendars. First off: I am aware that the C75 is not ideal for running the sort of magnetic stock I have, but it's what I have to work with.
We're currently in the middle of our peak print season. On both 11x17 and 12.5x18 stock, all of our images are coming out diagonally skewed AND with the right-hand border markedly larger than the left-hand border. We cut our magnets in-house and are having to discard far too many sheets because the borders are visibly off on about half the sheets. We just replaced our registration unit last month, we've done everything possible with the adjustment settings on the machine itself (most of which seem to do nothing), and our erstwhile tech has been out to look at the machine at least eight times. We even moved the far-left-hand unit (the one containing Tray 6, where we load our magnets) so that it was exactly even with the high-capacity feeder, and that didn't help either. I currently have a call out for a Tier 2 specialist, but I'm dead in the water until that can occur.
Having read through the forums for some time, I know that literally hundreds of factors can affect skew, but I'm seriously stumped and I have a perfectionist boss who really wants us back up and printing. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you use for adjustment the SIQA tool? If not download and install it ( https://www.support.xerox.com/support/xerox-c75/downloads/enus.html?operatingSystem=win7&&associated... )
And I think for what you said about the borders that you have an used 2ND BTR ( maybe it help also for skew ).
Thanks for the help! I have a call in to our regular tech to replace the 2nd BTR, but I'm still having the specialist come out to look over the machine just to make sure nothing else is affecting our prints.
I have this issue also, on 350gsm card stock. I have a new IBT and have made the maximum adjustments on the RIP and use a MAC but I think SIQA is only for PC. Any other mods I can make?
You can use the procedure below:
Adjustments can be made to the image based on the alignment output of a document. Various adjustments can be modified, such as image position, magnification, and skew.
The Alignment Adjustment setting is based on the type, size and weight of the paper. For example, create a setting if you are experiencing skew while printing on Tabloid (279 x 432 mm / 11 x 17 in.) coated stock.
