    Hi All, I've been using an application table for a few years now, but with problems, the day it was installed but just put up with it, does anyone else get the problem where vinyl will crease under the application/transfer paper, when rolling it, please see pictures.

    Thanks, Gary

    What kind of table? Is that centered on the table and have you tried reducing pressure?

    You can probably lower the pressure like already suggested. I know ours will do the from time to time if there is very little vinyl vs backer paper.

    I found if I leave a small 1" border of vinyl around the perimeter of the backer, this never happens. The vinyl around the edge also keeps the masking from rolling off the edges also. Win/Win.

    Hi Its a bubble-free table 6m long, yes it's centred but at the end of the table, when I reduce the pressure it's better but not enough pressure for the tape to work, currently at 1.5 bar/20 psi, if I drop it to 0.5 bar/8 psi its better just, but the tape won't stick to the vinyl, it starts when your in 2 or 3 mtr in, I've tried swopping the app tape roller to the other side and working at the other end of the table, also what BAR/PSI are other people using ?

    I have a Roll-X table and I tried to use the holder thing they have for the transfer tape and it didn't work very well. I think that may of happened when I tried it too.
    What I do is just start the transfer tape as if you were going to do it the old fashion way without a application table then use the application table to finish it.

    What I mean is have the applicator roller actually push the transfer tape with the transfer tape roll sitting on the table instead of in the air on that cross bar.

    By the looks, seems like you have a Rolls Roller and for as long as we have used ours which is over 12 yrs old. It's probably an adjustment on tension like mentioned earlier.

    You are at the end of the table why is the application tape facing the wrong way in my eyes?
