First, let’s explain the problem:
To feed any stock on any Kluge it has to be flat with the sucker face to feed.
Thin stock in large sheets is not stiff enough, or have enough body to stay standing up at such an angle in the magazine. When the stock starts to fall forward the suckers don’t always pick up a sheet because only the top of the suckers touch the paper and don’t seal to pick it up.
Fortunately, there is a simple, inexpensive solution:
All you have to do is add another comber to each side of the magazine over the one that is already on the press but face it up not down. The comber is Kluge part number 3355.
When you turn on the vacuum pump and blow air up, the stock will touch both combers and the stock will stay flat. When the suckers come in they come in contact with the paper held flat between the combers for a consistent feed.
So for under 10 dollars your problems are solved. The new EHG’s come with two combers on each side just for this reason.
