kluge double feeding

Log in to reply   3 replies so far

I have a kluge 12x18 press is up and running well but double feeds sometimes I have very little experence on this press any ideas what I’m doing wrong or what adjustments I can make? thanks any help is welcome.

air blast valve wide open… and don’t bring pile up too close… maintain air separation as feed arm picks the sheet.
try different sucker feet. use the sheet strippers on the sides.
try changing the angle of the back plate to more vertical.

Experience will be the key. Different stock, evermore different sheet size all come into play. Keep calm and make one adjustment at a time and you’ll get the hang of it. Btw I am working on making my ink rails perfectly adjustable will keep kluge owners informed. Ted Lavin
