WIDTH SHRINKAGE: Twisting is occurring. This is usually due to the lack of parallelism of the cylinders. In new felts, a parallel line is drawn to check if the felt is twisting.
WIDTH ELONGATION AND THINNING: This usually does not cause a problem, but if the elongation and subsequent thinning occur, it may reduce the felt's useful life.
FELT FORMS A WAVE: Check the parallelism of the cylinders, ensure that an appropriate felt is selected for the required pressure.
FELTS SHEDS FIBER: This phenomenon can occur at the beginning of the felt's life and self-clean during the first few days.

Clear print quality
Has the felt been mounted in the right direction? All felt fibers have a direction and they should allow the leather to slide back when entering the machine. All felts are normally marked with a direction arrow but it is always good to verify for yourself. Try tightening the felt more.
The felt reached the end of its useful life. The cover has worn out, and the fabric marks the leather. On very delicate thin leather you mightneed an even more delicate surface with long Merinos wool fibers.
Depending on if the problem arises from the beginning or after a long time, the causes can be different. Have you chosen the right felt? Has the felt become too hard? How is the surface?
