Inspection and cleaning of the gripper systems on your Koenig & Bauer press
The grippers of the impression cylinders and transfer drums are among the most precisely adjusted systems on the whole press, but are at the same time required to function under some of the toughest conditions. Contamination from inks, coatings, solvents, gum, paper dust, powder, etc. affects the correct positioning of the sheet in the grippers and may thus impact print quality decisively. In extreme cases, the contamination could even prevent proper lubrication. The result is then serious damage to the gripper shafts, bearings, followers and gripper opening cams.
