    • The registration mark for comparison is plotted after scanning the registration mark (see below). It will return to SENSOR OFFSET ADJ. screen once the plotting is completed.detectingregmark_pic7
  9. Using the scanned registration mark for adjusting, measure the
    distance of how much the comparison registration mark needs
    to be moved so both will overlap, and record the value. As
    an example, in the figure above, it needs to move in negative
    directions for both X and Y directions, so both of the adjustment
    values will be a negative values.
  10. Press the [3] key (X).
    • SENSOR OFFSET ADJ. X screen is displayed.
  11. control key_up_downPress the POSITION (▲▼) key and increase or decrease the
