    ​Both Web and sheet fed, How often should rollers be replaced? Is it the same for ink forms and distributers?

    ​Personally, the answer would depend on your printing schedule. 24/7 printing would require  a much more strict replacement than 8/5 use.
    I seem to remember that when the rollers develop a shiny glaze on their surface that does not go away with glaze remover and putz that is also an indicator that replacement is due.
