Straight Line Configuration

Figure 23 shows the Buffer/Flipper Unit viewed from the front. The darker shaded side of the forms in Figure 23 is the side that is printed on Printer 1. The lighter shaded side of the forms is the side that is printed on Printer 2.

Use Figure 23 to thread the forms through the Buffer/Flipper Unit using the arrows as a guide from Printer 1 at the top of the figure to Printer 2 at the bottom of the figure. The result is that the forms are inverted 180° between Printer 1 and Printer 2.

The guide collars (A) through (F) on the roller bars were adjusted properly when the system was initially installed. Adjustments by you are probably not necessary, even if you are threading a form through the system with a different width than you previously threaded. When the forms are under tension and moving through the Buffer/Flipper Unit, they run up against the guide collars that are shown.
