PRINTING INDUSTRY / ADJUSTMENT OF STANDS AND PRINTING CYLINDERS
A modern multi-color printing system consists of several separate units, one unit per primary color. To achieve high-quality print products, these units must be precisely aligned and adjusted when assembled.
Each single color unit provides horizontal and/or vertical reference faces, which must be used during the manufacturing process in the production plant as well as for the adjustment of the printing line. The positions of the reference faces must be adjusted in accordance to each other, measured, and a record must be printed. The positions of the printing cylinders must be precisely aligned to each other (horizontally).
