Would love some to get some thoughts on a roller issue.
First I should mention that I am working with new rollers and a press that is new to me so I unfortunately don’t have a frame of reference for past performance.
I’m experiencing an imbalance with noticeably heavier ink coverage on one side. When I raise the rollers on the heavier side- even the tiniest bit (and I do mean by a micro-millimeter), the coverage becomes grossly more uneven with no ink coverage in certain spots. If I lower the rollers on the side that is hitting lighter, it seems to throw the coverage even more out of whack and I get no ink coverage in other spots (which logically makes no sense in that I am lowering the rollers and would expect heavier not lighter coverage).
Also, I’ve used my roller setting gauge to set the rollers evenly from side to side, but it does not result in even ink coverage. In order to get coverage close to even I have to blindly adjust the knobs little by little until the coverage is somewhat acceptable.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
