    I have Komori sprint 2 color s26
    I am trying to print 250gsm duplex paper
    But I am getting wrinkle on the tail of the paper on both side. I have checked the gripper it’s ok still can’t find a solution.
    This happens to large paper only like 19x25 paper as small paper there is no wrinkle.

    The wheels on the back of the paper might be to tight in the freder. Try to back them of a bit

    Are both units on impression? try one at a time and see if You can figure out which unit it happens in

    Is there any waviness or tight edges at all to your stock? Have you tried throwing in a small lift of a different sheet of the same size and weight to determine if it is a paper problem? Grain direction???

    Have you tried a different paper on the same machine? The printability of any given stock is often a moving target in time. Unless your paper storage AND pressroom environment remain consistent as far as temp and RH , the sheet that runs fine this week may not run fine next week. This is one area that is often overlooked when it comes to upper managements decisions to incur the cost of climate control throughout the entire plant. Ive found it to be not all that unusual, for poor pressroom scheduling to require running paper right off the delivery truck, in below freezing outdoor conditions. Then issues with the job are blamed on the press operator!!!
    The universally accepted "rules of printing" that we've all known for decades, should not be subject to negotiation, just because they are inconvenient or too costly.

    You’ve already shown that it isn’t a stock issue when you ran that same paper through a different press without any issue...so why continue to waste time with that?

    Check, clean, and lubricate all of the grippers on your infeed swing arm, and do the same for all of the grippers on your impression cylinders. Note the results. As already mentioned by another poster, another way to troubleshoot the issue is to turn the units (impression) on one at a time, and see if the paper wrinkles with only one unit (impression) turned on. If it does, which unit is it?

    How many press operators that you know, have the same skill set? Engineers are also only human and have different levels of training, understanding, and skill set/talent. They’re not all the same. Without being there myself I would guess that your ‘engineer’ is wrong in his assessment. I wouldn’t have let him leave until the problem was solved because that’s his job. It’s why he’s there. Either that or call someone else.

    With that said, you just mentioned where the problem probably is in your post. It’s either somewhere in the transfer cylinder’s grippers before the second unit, or, it’s with the second unit’s impression cylinder grippers. I would focus on that area.

    I have called another engineer tomorrow let’s see what he has to say.
    The one that came today tried all gripper setting but couldn’t not solve it. He is saying the timing of gripper is having problem. Let’s see

    Anyone else have anymore ideas to try so that wrinkle stops as I have showed the machine to 2 more engineers but they are not able to find the problem both say grippers are ok and cylinder’s are also ok but can’t find problem.

    How many of these technicians are/were from Komori? Seems very strange that a Komori technician can’t find a problem with one of their machines. I’ve never experienced that before.
