QM2 Plate moving during run

2014, július 17 - 17:01
I run a Heidelberg Printmaster QM2. Great press. When I run a 2-colour tight fit job I notice that the plate on the PU2 head moves away from the gripper edge very slowly during the run, and I have to keep adjusting it forward slightly to keep the fit.

I suspect the plate is moving out of the clamp a bit, and perhaps loosening at both ends (both clamps).

Anyone experience this and find a solution to share?

Hi everyone,
We have a 102CD 2005 4 colour that we struggle to feed thinner stock through (i.e. 80/90gsm). A little research has suggested that using 'shells' will improve this.
Can anyone advise me on what 'shells' are and what task they perform?
Thank you.

Kba - 105

2014, július 15 - 16:25

We are investigating a KBA-105 machine, and we have found some discrepencies in the information provided by the seller. I would appreciate some assistance in clarifying the below:

1-It is our understanding that the KBA Rapida 105 was first produced and launched in 1998 as per the information published on KBA website (while the year of production of the latter machine is noted as 1996). Any feedback on this matter?

2-The internal parts of the machine are labelled as "KBA Rapida 104". Can you please advise if the KBA-105 could have any internal parts pertaining to the older KBA Rapida 104 or the latter is indeed a KBA Rapida 104 officially?

3-Is there a way to know from the serial number if the machine is a 104 or a 105 model?

Thanks in advance.
