It is possible that enabling a 'print gutter' in the RIP on the printer right (closest to ink cartridges) may help with this.

If that does not resolve the issue, enabling the color variation function in the printer would be the next step to try. From the front panel: Settings Icon > Image Quality Maintenance > Color Variation On/Off.

Finally, if the Y/M printheads are nearing end-of-life, replacing them may also resolve this issue with the orange hue uniformity.

As mentioned by Paul Wagner (thanks!), you should check to use the spit bars on both sides of the job as well as spit on page function. If the issue continues then you should try to rotate the job 0.5º to 2º
