    you need to tighten up the clamps. Not sure of the plate clamps on a QM are the same as a speedster but each segment of clamp should have an adjustment screw. There is also the possibility that the inside of the clamps have a buildup of dried ink thats not allowing the clamp to properly bite the plate.

    I'm sending a photo showing that the plate moves from the gripper and this is after 177 sheets
