As quality and production speeds for inkjet presses come into alignment, it is seen by some as to be an almost perfect printing process, if done correctly, since there is no image carrier, no makeready
, instant drying and integrated finishing.
Komori calculated an average of less than five minutes per job, including makeready
, pre-ink, run-up to color, achieving register, running, wash-up and on to the next job.
Other standard or optional technologies on the RYOBI 1050 series press include the centralized settings covering makeready
, paper changing, cleaning, registration, dampening volume control and more.
Startup time is reduced by 90 percent and makeready
times by 40 percent, while press capacity is increased by 25 percent.
In addition to the iGen presses, CCM has five Xerox Nuvera([R]) devices including one Nuvera 144 Production System and four Nuvera 120 Production Systems along with FreeFlow Makeready
and Web Services software to produce a variety of on-demand applications.
Woodrow Press announced that it has made an investment in a second five-colour Heidelberg for raising productivity and reduce makeready
times, worth SM 74
Following the growing demand of the label and narrow web market for faster change over and shorter makeready
time, AVT & Nilpeter have collaborated, once again, to provide an integrated digital remote inking & CIP3 pre-setting solution to the Winter M3300 and M04 presses," says Gal Shamri, VP corporate business development.
Platt points out that the automation of the 52DI press results in substantially reduced makeready
waste as compared to conventional offset, which is important to the company's environmental sustainability strategies.
We have a continuing effort to reduce press makeready
through the use of improved color measurement equipment that is linked by software to accurate ink dispensing equipment.
The company's most recent additions include the Xerox iGen4[TM] Press, FreeFlow([R]) Print Server, FreeFlow([R]) Process Manager and FreeFlow Makeready
We've achieved the huge increase in productivity over the previous press thanks to much shorter makeready
times and higher production speeds.
In doing so, it can reduce press makeready
time and waste," explains Ian Hole, EskoVP market development.
