    I've been struggling with this job for sometime now. It's a grey job color values as follows. Cyan-60, Magenta-50, Yellow-46 & Black 39. I print it on paper size 701mmx1020mm and the color won't match from grip to tail on the same sheet. See attached where I'm holding the paper and the other part different. Close to my hand its has a more magenta and the other part showing less magenta. How do I get this right?

    Chromatic grey is a strict *****! You need to have perfect register WITHOUT any variations from sheet to sheet, your rollers must be in good shape and striped correctly, blankets and packing correct. You could avoid all this fuss with gray color removal -convert cmy to k with appropriate tint-

    I would try to arrive at the grey tint with less of the 3 colors and more of the black.

    I think some problem with the grippers. do you seen any kind of doubling in that area?

    I agree with turbotom. Maybe consider running integrated, or adjusting inker timing. Depending on press of course.

    Stop killing yourself and add a PMS! That is pressman nightmare. Needs takeoff bars too if you can find the room
