I got a general question about the use of the washup unit. I just got an unused orignal nylonblade for the washup unit of my “FAG Control 405”. Until now I didn’t use the washup unit, since the old blade was broken. I print around 500–1500 proofs a week, sometimes with alot of colour changes – so it could make sence to use the auto washup. Here are my questions:
+ Do you guys use your washup unit? Any experience?
+ Are there any special tricks? I mean, I just run ink drum fast, then pour a little mineral spirits on the whole inking system, then use the washup unit while pouring a little more mineral spirts. Finally whiping the rollers and everything with a cloth. Sure I also clean the blade itself.
+ How to clean the washup unit? Any tricks? How often?
