method of application secures the rule to a carrier sheet,
which is then secured to the impression cylinder by spray
adhesive or other adhesive material. With the carrier sheet
lying face up on a table, apply the rule along the guidelines.
Use a straight edge for exact lines. Overlay the rule with
the clear tape. Apply a coat of spray adhesive to the impression
cylinder to prepare the approximate area the carrier sheet
Next, place the carrier sheet onto the feeder table aligning
with the head stop and the side guide. Inch, or manually turn,
the press forward and feed the sheet into the press. During
the application procedure, only allow the unit being used
to perf to go onto impression.
As the carrier sheet runs through the blanket and impression
cylinder, the unit will go on impression and the carrier sheet
will be adhered to the impression cylinder. Stop the press
when the carrier sheet is halfway through the unit and cut
off the gripper bite. Secure the leading edge of the carrier
sheet with tape. Back off pressure and adjust as desired.
On completion of the job, the plastic sheet may be removed
and stored for future use. The removed gripper bite will need
to be replaced to run the same job again.
