banding on xerox 700

I've got a Xerox 700 with an external Fiery RIP, and when I print gradients there's seems to be a pronounced banding/stepping on the gradient. it's noticeable enough that it looks like two different colors were applied, instead of a gradient to white. i've also tried the gradient set to 0% opacity in InDesign; same result. I've adjusted the print quality settings up -- turned on image smoothing, set image quality to best, text/graphics quality to best and adjusted the printer screen mode with no luck.

 

we're about to our wit's end with this machine.

Re: banding on xerox 700

Not sure if there is an image noise option on your front end but on our Creo for the iGEN we use image noise on gradients and it seems to help out a lot.

Re: banding on xerox 700

we usually recreate all gradients to a photoshop gradient and add noise but the Xerox still doesn't print them as well as we would hope :/

Re: banding on xerox 700

Has the machine been calibrated on the stock being run?
