    Re: Wrinkling masters gr 3750

    Thanks for the input! I'll give that a try on my next print run. We noticed last night that when we are printing 8.5x11" we don't get any wrinkles on the master at all, but 11x17" gives us wrinkles. Its like trying to get my old Nintendo to work, just wiggle some thing back and forth and hope for the best!

    Thanks for taking the time to look at these!
    Whew! Thanks for sharing those pictures. That roller appears to be a modification to the machine that I am not familiar with. However, I did find a parts change pub about that, so I think I know what's going on now.
    During the master making process, there needs to be a certain amount of tension on the master material to prevent master wrinkling. Normally, that is provided by brakes in the couplings for the flanges on the ends of the master roll. That modification was to compensate for dodgy brakes, which were really uncommon on the machines I worked on. Still, that mod is installed on that machine, and it would indicate that the torque limiter (the part on the very left end of that roller) has failed.
    I don't know how much good it will do, but here's the parts change pub I was talking about:
