This week we have another simple thing to check to get better results fast on tabletop folding machines or on small rotary scoring or perforating machines. As with last week’s bindery video, I’m referring to the type of scoring or folding machines that don’t have a register table.
Last week we talked about how improperly trimmed or seriously curled paper will hurt the quality of the finished product coming off these machines. Of course poor paper will worsen finishing quality on any machine, even the most sophisticated. But on more complex equipment there are ways to compensate for poorly trimmed paper. With direct feed machines it’s almost impossible to compensate for bad cutting.
