HP Latex - Image Swerving and Stepping off Path

#1 CyprusJack 3 months ago

Hi Guys, Hope you can help or offer some advice please

A couple of times today, and once during the week, we had the print almost swerve off its path Our prints have an equal gutter on each side of the print

The roll remains straight, it is not unwound uneven, but for some reason the print seems to be drifting off course

Almost in steps like a small swerve, before resuming a straighht line on a new path and then the same again

If you see the attached images

The result, was that what was a 2cm gutter on each side, had become almost 4cm on one side, and 0.5cm on the other side, after several metres of printing

Any suggestions what may be causing this ? Its only on one of our 5 machines Ive tried to show it in a diagram, and also a couple of shots that show how it swerves and drifts

Any help greatly appreciated

thanks a lot Jack
