·    A BID is a Binary Ink Developer

·    Each color has its own BID. The BID units engage with the plate, developing an image on it. Ink transfers from the plate to a heated blanket using an electric field. A clean BID is key to achieving high image quality at high speeds.

·    Improper cleaning leads to print defects, slower press speeds and downtime.
