Color Copiers
Need some info from someone who runs copiers
We have a Docucolor 5000, I'm having difficulties having my proof come out.
It's a blue color c61 m20 y15 k40 on 12pt Tango lots of coverage.
It's not coming out very smooth at all.
So my question is what are the best settings to change for this?
We just had service so I don't think it's that.

The previous copy girl, no longer works here, and the one that does, doesn't know much.
I think it's too much (color-coverage) for our copier, but I want to try.

It ran better 1-up instead of 2-up
I could not do that job, it's very frustrating

Sorry Tracy...I almost never use the color copier but can you go to a lower line screen on it? Like if you are running at 150 LPI can you go down to 133 LPI?

Stick to litho, good girl!

Seriously though, copiers and digital presses are a headache.

Yeah I just went looking through our settings and I can't find a place to change LPI either. You might want to try some different settings in this area though. For example change 'Super-Fine' to 'Fine'. The 'Dithering' settings might make a difference too.

While I agree they are a headache this piece of crap here is making a fortune for our owners.

I can only imagine how much it could make if it weren't broke down 50% of the time. :rotf:

Where is the break from color copier to "digital press"?

I just started operating a little Oki C931e... they call it a Digital Press, but it looks like a damn copy machine. It has an EFI on the front but you can still print as a desktop printer. Is there a distinction or does it just vignette from copier to press? I'm offset and none of 'em look like a "press" to me.

The guys that come in to service them calls ours a digital press. I laugh when they say that. I would call something like the Nexpress a digital press.

Right! Nexpress, Indigo, etc... my Oki has the exact same shape and footprint of the Imagistics copier that is next to it. I've been inside them both and they are quite different, but still, it is hardly a press.

I like the little dude, don't get me wrong. I think: Large Digital Printer is to Press as Fiery is to Prinergy. :rotf:  Nerverackin' Fiery. And the little digital techs get all butthurt if you call Fiery a baby rip.
