Once you have cut a master laquer, you have metal stampers created and have records pressed from them. Discuss manufacturing here. (Record Matrix Electroforming- Plating, Vinyl Record Pressing.)

Label Problem

Unread postby DR_faust » Fri Aug 25, 2017 3:16 am

Hello to all members,
let me introduce quickly: Ma Name is Hannes, we founded this year our Company AUSTROVINYL from Zero. Cutting, electro-plating, pressing -->having all in "one house" is the goal!
Now we're proud owners of a brand new Pheenix Alpha press and we started testpressing 3 weeks ago.
more pics etc.. http://www.facebook.com/austrovinyl http://www.austrovinyl.at

Here is the Problem:
Eventhough we dry the labels for hours in a laboratory oven with 85 degrees, the color of the labels sticks on the stampers! (..it takes me allways 20 minutes to clean them.. :shock:)
Pressing with White Labels is no Problem at all.. -nice, smooth results!
We tried labels from a different printing company aswell, -same problem!

I'm very thankful for every tip and trick from you guys!!

P.S.: This forum is great, I love it! :)

Try this.....

Matte Art Paper 120gsm.
Standard offset ink (rubber based).
Do not use glossy paper.
Avoid metallic colours or you will have the same problem.

Hello and welcome.

Do you perform a correct sanding of the stampers center?

Cordially.

Problem solved!
Thanks to a good friend of mine!
He is an engineer in the woods-industries, so he knows about drying wood (paper) and it's behaviour..
We experimented a little.. voilà!
It's always good to have friends in all kind of businesses :)

How about sharing the solution?
It's good to ask for help here but sometimes you need to contribute as well.
