    Hello people, for quite some time, I have the headache of paper dust contaminating the press that produces hickeys on solids and specks of lint on blankets, along with dust on different places -feed board etc-.

    We usually print mat/satin paper varying from 150 gsm to 350 and use 2 brands -from time to time 3-.

    Our guillotine is Polar 72EM with steel knife and this happens even with freshly sharpened knife.

    I trim at all sides, use a cloth to wipe away the stack, blow stack on press with air but still i get this problem.
