How Perf Print Plus Works

PPP is easy to operate. Just follow these steps:

  • Simply mount the PPP-Foil as a regular blanket.
  • Put the PPP-Base Set underneath the foil and tighten to the recommended specifications.
  • Stick the self-adhesive tools (perf rules, dies or blanket) to the foil.
  • Stick the self-adhesive PPP-Protection Plate to the impression cylinder.
  • Back off the pressure at least 0.1 mm more than the paper thickness and run a few sheets through the press.
  • Increase pressure by small increments until a perfect perforation is achieved.
