  1. Noritsu QSS-3102 Turbo Lane Selection

    Thank you for the reply photocorp. We have magnets on each machine for lead edge damage inspection. As far as I can tell my turnbelts are OK. I've thoroughly cleaned my processor racks and crossovers trying to alleviate this issue to no avail. The racks visibly compound the skew of the print as it travels up the rollers. Almost negligible out of first rack, slightly worse out of second and so on. Their is a modest swelling in the 1/3 and 2/3 the way across the rollers when I mic them. My guess is the issue is compounding. Unfortunately replacing every roller in the processor is completely uneconomical and we cannot justify the expense. Thusly we've been forced to split our orders to another line of printers for 4x6s since larger prints do not have the leading corners damaged so badly. (The 4x6 prints have nearly a 45 degree skew coming out of dryer..)
  2. Our racks are gradually making each of the two prints in a lane tilt diagonally. By the time the prints exit the dryer they have corner damage on the corners that were leading. Is there a method of turning this machine single track as our center prints do not exhibit this issue. We are not looking forward to having to replace every single processor roller to correct this problem and are willing to try whatever is necessary. Thank you.
