Vandercook only inking half?

I was starting to run a job on my Vandercook Uni I this morning and was doing all of the setup though when I went to start running some test prints it’s only inking the first half of the plate. I get impression on the entire sheet but ink on only half. This is a new problem - I have successfully printed full sheets before…any thoughts as this seems really abrupt and strange.

I’d check the roller bearing supports and the gear rack to be sure there isn’t something about even with where it quits inking that is lifting the rollers slightly at that point.



Check your rollers to make sure they are seated properly.


Does this partial inking happen on both print and trip?
