Streaks in Print

Problem:

Streaks appear about halfway around the cylinder in a printed image.

Solution:

Blanket is overpacked, causing a bump when striking the plate that jars form rollers. This creates a bounce and skid, producing a streak. Correct blanket packing.

Problem:

Streaks appear across the sheet one revolution back from the top of the plate.

Solution:

Ink form rollers are set too heavily to the plate. Set rollers to pressures specified by the press manufacturer.
