In the printing industry, print registration errors can be a costly problem. These errors occur when overlapping colors of a single image are out of alignment, resulting in an image that is blurry or fuzzy. This is also called being “out of register”.
To provide the best quality print image for their customers, printing press manufacturers look to minimize these registration errors as much as possible. This can be achieved in part by ensuring their presses are made using quality components, such as high precision ground gearing. In particular, it is crucial that the gearing used have minimal runout and spacing errors so that the image produced by the press is as sharp and crisp as possible.
