I have been a master printer for 17 years ran all sorts of presses and withoout a doubt a ryobi 3302 will do all the jobs a 2 colour gto will do at twice the speed god i love this press, it is all down to preparation i have not come across a job that it will struggle to do, set it up right and your laughing, just brouught one off e bay £1.500 pounds dirty but still going strong doing full colour all day. running full colour A3 quality process work on gloss at 9000 sph. never misses a beat. had to make a few modifications to the feed, a few pounds but after that ££££££££££ is all i see. could do with a bigger pump motor but easily over come if you are quite handy. we run desk pads on it 6 times a year for ICI paints A3 80 gsm at 10,000 an hour for a full working day 230,000 sheets in total 4 day turn around. any one doubts this press i will gladly demonstrate its qualities for a small fee, let me come and show you what it can do.regards

This undisputed fact is for that "master printer", Tony Strange.

I have been operating Ryobi 3302 presses since their introduction to the print market in the mid 80's. I am also a long time GTO operator. Your assessment that the 3302 will print anything that the GTO will print and match the quality and production effiency, is inaccurate. I do not have to go into an extended explanation of why you are wrong, something short will suffice. It is what it is: 3302 is potrait format, GTO is Landscape. 3302 has push guides, GTO has pull guides. 3302 has 3 ink form rollers, GTO has 4. I could go on and talk about the difference between crestline, ryobimatics and alcolor or swing grippers and three point registar versus head stops and feed rollers but I think that if you disucss the above mentioned facts with some of your respected colleagues you will find that colletively we can get you back on the right path and also prevent you from publishing things on this site that are simple inaccurate. As a "17 year master printer" you should demonstrate a greater degree of responsibility for those that search theses sites for informative purposes.

By the way, Ryobi builds a press model 512 that is closer to the GTO than the 3302.

I have one myself, but you can never compare it to the GTO. Offcourse depends on what jobs you are printing. If you dont need the quality off the GTO then the price on a 3302 will do all the difference.

I have just got the e1 error message (on a 3304). Did you ever find out what it is?

Check the plug on the small circuit board on the main lever on the drive side on the first unit.
E-2, it would be the same on the second unit.

Anyone know what the error code E3 means on a ryobi 3302 please

E-1 is a safety circiut error. The ryobi safety has 2 contacts in it. 1 side inputs the safety device signal to the CPU and the other trips the R-100 relay which causes your press not to run.
An E-3 error is the encodor. Try replacing it if it persits, however you will have to do a zero point adjustment on it after installed.

Ive had a 3302 M with 4 roller Crestline water system for 15 years have had very good resolts from this machine. How ever recently the the number one Crestline unit which I have added new pan and form rollers. When I try to get a stripe on the plate the non-operater side veries everyime. Does any one have suggestions?

Thanks

You have to drop the control panel as well as take off the lower cover under the panel. If you run the press and watch the units cycle on and off you will see the pivot points for the cylinders as they go on and off impression. There is a 13mm bolt on the blocks that pivot.
They can be manually turned on and off but only at certain degrees before you get full engagement. Ink the plate up solid, turn the bolt
and check you beads. The blocks that push the bar that goes up to a T. Full engagement occurs as the T goes slightly over center.
Proper adjustment however requires a set of thickness gages for proper setting.
