Most printers in North America print 4 color process in the sequence of black ink in the first unit, cyan in the second, magenta in the third, and then yellow in the last. This is called the rotation, or trap sequence. Some printers like to change the rotation of the process inks on jobs they believe will benefit (i.e.. print cleaner) from a different sequence. To change sequence, the units that will switch colors need to be thoroughly cleaned before putting a different color ink in them. John G. Essel
